I was a Contributing Editor to Bon Appetit and wrote for the magazine since from 1999 to 2014. My articles appeared in the magazine and you can also find them archived at both BonAppetit.com and Epicurious.com.
I also represented the magazine on national television programs dozens of times on shows such as TODAY, Dr. Oz and on HSN (HomeShoppingNetwork). I had a monthly segment on the CBS Early Showand was a frequent contributor to The View.
Here are some of my favorite recipes that I have developed for Bon Appetit over the years. Be sure to check the links to the original recipes at Bon Appetit and Epicurious where you can read reviews and print out shopping lists.
Buttermilk Panna Cotta with Tropical Fruit – This panna cotta has a very slight tang from the buttermilk, and while it is lovely plain, or with your choice of toppings, don’t miss out on this mélange of tropical fruit.
Cheesecake Tart with Tropical Fruits – a thin layer of creamy cheesecake nestled in a sweet, crisp tart shell. Top it any way you like, but this colorful assortment of fruit makes a stunning presentation. I love the idea of cheesecake but often I am done after one bite. This thinner profile is a great way to indulge.
Rhubarb Lattice Pie with Cardamom and Orange – a perfect pie for spring when rhubarb s fresh. The cardamom and orange are an unexpected twist – you’ve never tasted a pie like this before. A scoop of vanilla ice cream is a welcomed addition.
Peanut Butter Caramel Honey Nut Tart with Ganache Glaze (lower right of pic) – A crisp sweet shell holds a chewy layer of caramelized, honey-sweetened peanuts, topped with a smooth creamy peanut butter filling and finally crowned with a ganache glaze – and it keeps really well.
Coconut Peach Cake – This white cake has coconut milk in the batter, coconut shavings all over the outside and a luscious peach filling between every one of its four layers. A great choice for an August party.
