Spiced Pumpkin Bisque
In Galena, The Inn at Irish Hollow serves this creamy, curried soup in the autumn and winter, but it tastes just as good any time of the year. You can make your own creme fraiche for the garnish or use purchased creme fraiche or sour cream.
Fluffiest Cinnamon Rolls
Because of the super buttery dough, these meltingly tender brioche buns hover on the line between pastry and bread. This recipe comes from Heritage Baking by Ellen King, founder of Hewn bakery in Evanston.
Granny Rendleman's Peach Pinwheel Dumplings
The biscuits absorb some of the cooking liquid, but this is still a very juicy dessert. The syrupy liquid tastes divine with vanilla ice cream. The recipe comes from Rendleman Orchards in Alto Pass.
Classic Brioche Loaf
Brioche is a classic French bread made with oodles of butter and egg. It’s soft, rich and luxurious. This recipe comes from Heritage Baking by Ellen King, founder of Hewn Bakery in Evanston.
