Chocolate Hazelnut Tart

I’m back on the wagon of tackling the recipes in the bulging files of recipes that I’ve been collecting and hanging on to for the past thirty years.

I’m back on the wagon of tackling the recipes in the bulging files of recipes that I’ve been collecting and hanging on to for the past thirty years. Many pre-date the internet and were from food magazines (made of paper) that I subscribed to. A surprising number of the savory recipes have the words “adobo” or “chipotle,” and “pork” in the title, so if I ever want to write a book of well-seasoned pork recipes, I’ve got plenty of inspiration.

She also knew the appeal of a great photo and Romulo Yanes, who recently passed away, created many of the great images that Gourmet was known for.

Many questioned why Condé Nast killed Gourmet but not Bon Appétit, but the subscription numbers were more favorable for the latter, which didn’t end well, and is now undergoing another revamp.

I don’t know what the weather is like near you, but it is BLAZIN’ hot here in Ohio. Like you don’t even want to go outside hot.

While Ohio is definitely no stranger to the summer heat, it’s been in the 90’s for what seems like weeks.

And when you happen to have a husband that is most comfortable with a thermostat set to 75 during the day, flipping on the oven to make a cheesecake might just not my best choice.

Hello, No Bake Nutella Cheesecake.
