Let’s Have Cake!

It’s my birthday today, so cake is on my mind. I just did a search on ReciFoto, and there are hundreds and hundreds of cake recipes. People like cake. My own personal favorite is kind of birthday cake is chocolate, but as long as the cake is shared with people I love, it really doesn’t matter what kind it is.

A couple of years ago I bought a box of recipe cards that included a bunch from Rockwood’s Chocolate Bits, which is now defunct. Think of chocolate bits as the equivalent of chocolate chips. Their factory is now lofts for hipsters in Brooklyn, I think. But the recipe cards are pretty cool. The other two recipes were from a book that my mom and other members of her generation in our family used to make birthday cakes for us when we were little. Enjoy!

Hello Zucchini

Zucchini are taking our local farmers market by storm. Here’s a fun zucchini fact: they are actually a fruit, but we usually treat them as a vegetable. Perhaps, this dual nature is what accounts for zucchini’s culinary versatility. You can make an entire multi-course meal centered around zucchini, including, soup, salad, bread, sides, entrees, and dessert. Here’s a small sample of the vast trove of zucchini recipes you can find on the ReciFoto app.

Super Easy Delicious Zucchini Soup

Zucchini Salad

Zucchini Feta Pancakes

Frittata of Vegetables and Cheese

Zucchini Pickles

Zucchini Sticks

Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Pie

It’s Cherry Season!

It’s cherry season! Your local farmers market and grocery stores are chock full of cherries, sweet, sour, bing, white and more. We’ve gone through our users’ cherry recipes, and eliminated all the ones made with canned cherries. Interestingly, most of the fresh cherry recipes are from the 1920’s to 1940’s. After that, we became a convenience based cooking society, it seems. Oh yeah, we also eliminated the maraschino cherry recipes from this list! Here’s a selection we’d be eager to try or have served to us at your house!

By the way, the boiled salad dressing in the first recipe took us by surprise. We’ve included a recipe for it at the bottom of the page that we found in the Recifoto archive.

Gazpacho is the perfect soup for the hot days ahead. It is typically made with raw vegetables and served chilled. It has its origins in Andalusia in Spain, and neighboring Portugal.

Your Favorite Muffins

Everyone loves muffins, and we want to know what’s your favorite kind. Click here to take the ReciFoto Muffin Poll.

We are curious about what people’s favorite kind of muffin is and we already conducted a one question survey on Twitter. We got 26 votes and the results were pretty definitive in spite of the relatively small sample size. 65% of the respondents chose blueberry, 23% corn, and 12% chocolate chip. No one chose Oatmeal Raisin.

Given the results of the Twitter poll, though, we’re giving you mostly blueberry muffin recipes!
