"Martha Bakes" with My Guest, Helen Goh

Be sure to tune in for another new episode of “Martha Bakes” today on PBS. In this show, we'll talk about oats - a very versatile whole-grain food. We’ll make a savory Swiss chard and ricotta galette and a batch of nutty, chewy cowboy cookies - all with oats. You'll love this show - just check your local listings for air times.

As many of you know, I'm extremely proud of “Martha Bakes”. This half-hour show is where I get to share tips and techniques for making flavorful baked goods right at home. During this season's premiere episode, I invited London-based pastry chef, cookbook author, and longtime Yotam Ottolenghi collaborator, Helen Goh, to share her rendition of a Moroccan Dried Fruit Cake. Helen draws inspiration from the fruits of the season and her love for traditional foods. 

If you missed that first Season-11 episode of "Martha Bakes", here are some photos - enjoy.

A Visit to Hudson, New York

If you love visiting charming neighborhoods or shopping for antiques, I encourage you to make a stop in the picturesque city of Hudson, New York.

Hudson is located along the river of the same name, just two-hours north of New York City. Warren Street, the central thoroughfare in Hudson, is filled with dozens of antique shops featuring some of the best in period furniture, decor, and art. Last weekend, I decided to make the short drive up to Hudson for a little antiquing - it was a fabulous way to spend a cold winter day.

Here are some photos.
