Cammy’s Cinnamon Raisin Challah French Toast

There is nothing better than challah french toast except, perhaps, cinnamon raisin challah french toast!  And who better to make it than our own Top Chef, Cammy? See the recipe for the cinnamon raisin challah in the recipe for raisin challah. The bread is so flavorful, that a very basic egg dip can be used….

Cammy’s Honey Spiced Apple Muffins

For Cammy’s contribution to our Rosh Hashanah celebration, he made the apple cupcakes from Joan Nathan’s The Children’s Jewish Holiday Kitchen.  We call them muffins because they seem better to us as a breakfast treat rather than as a dessert.  The warm spices evoke thoughts of the oncoming fall.  They are best drizzled with honey, but go…

Cammy’s Scrambled Eggs

We hadn’t planned on Cammy cooking this weekend, but as we lost power because of the storm, we had to shift his dinner to a stovetop meal, and he wanted eggs.  So, voila!, a perfect dish for him to make for himself and give him an activity to keep him occupied in the dark. He…

Cammy’s Popovers

Cammy’s Quesadillas

Cammy’s cooking adventure #2 was making cheese quesadillas for our lunch.  Again, we went over the recipe in “Pretend Soup” so he would know what to do.  First I gathered all the makings for one quesadilla, we set up anew with tortillas and cheese for each quesadilla. We opted for just cheese, no beans.  Assembling the…

Blueberry Oat Bran Pancakes

Happy Fourth! I am very excited about this post.  It is the first time Cam is the chef and I am the assistant.  We discussed our plan the night before so he would know what to expect and what tools we would use. We made our pancakes with oat bran and whole wheat flour.  In…

Raspberry & Dark Chocolate Scones

All I can say is, “Oh my goodness, these are wonderful!”  Another winner from joyofbaking.com.  I did not change the recipe at all (other than to use black raspberries), so I am referring you back to their page for it – click here. I did have help making these, so I decided to include some…
