Mary lincoln’s white almond cake
Mary Todd Lincoln was raised in a wealthy Lexington, Kentucky, family and partial to the finer things in life, like this white almond cake. The Todd family requested the recipe from the Lexington caterer who first made it, and it is said that Mary baked the cake for Abraham Lincoln when they courted, after they were married, and when she was First Lady. The recipe is a part of the culinary history of Kentucky and has been printed in Godey’s Lady’s Book, newspapers, and cookbooks.
<br />An avid baker, Mary was said to have purchased 13 pounds of sugar for baking in 1 week of 1849. Unlike Mary, Abe Lincoln was from log-cabin Kentucky frontier roots. A successful and skilled courtroom attorney, Lincoln helped bring an end to slavery and the Civil War. His assassination on April 14, 1865, as he was barely in his second term, shocked the country. This almond cake became a symbol of Lincoln afterward and was found on inaugural and military banquet menus in the 1870s. This recipe is adapted from the book A Culinary History of Kentucky.

Sauteed brussels sprouts with lemon and almonds
Good brussels sprouts? Isn't that an oxymoron? You might think so, but then you haven't tried these. This post is hereby redemption from the barrage of sweets I've posted in the past few weeks. My apologies. I am not trying to put anyone in a sugar coma... but sometimes the desserts are the only part of the meal worth posting. From Bon Appetit: "A dish to convert all the brussels sprout haters," and that is truly what it is. The trick is how you cut them, then how you cook them. Separating the leaves and tossing the cores spreads out the brussels sprout flavor, making them less like the hunk of green-ness that makes children cringe, and more like a fresh and delicious and sweet (yes sweet!) salad. Trust me on this one. Don't allow yourself to eat those mouth-watering Molten Chocolate Cakes until you first eat your brussels sprouts. And I promise you, you'll like them. I may even try feeding these to my dad... the man who will not eat anything green save maybe iceberg lettuce. Sauteed
A muffin recipe has to be really good to get my endorsement. When it comes to baked goods, I have an exacting palate, and I am very particular about my muffins. Too many so-called muffins
Caramilk brownie bites
My sister and her husband came to visit a while ago, and very thoughtfully brought me a post-gestational-diabetes present - a large box of Cadbury's chocolate bars. I believe the box held 50 assorted bars,
Chocolate cherry breakfast bars (original recipe)
The dreaded school lunch. I don't quite know why this is, but making children's lunches for school is about as rewarding as making a beautiful gourmet dinner and then flushing it all down the toilet
