“I guess I’m a baking nerd,” says Dorie Greenspan with a sly smile. The award-winning cookbook author is standing in the middle of Food Network Kitchen, whisk in hand and talking about her latest book, Baking Chez Moi. “I’ve come to think of myself as a baking evangelist. I want people to have the satisfaction of making something themselves. So when I write, I try to imagine I’m talking to a newbie.” Dedicated to the home cooking she delights in during the four months a year she spends in Paris, Greenspan’s newest book is friendly and approachable, straddling both the high (Bubble Éclairs) and humble (Chocolate Chip Cookies). Her Custardy Apple Squares are an ideal mix of the two, and Greenspan happily demonstrated how to whip them up during her visit. “I love this recipe,” she says. “It’s so easy, so unfussy, so French.” Follow Dorie’s step-by-step how-to to make them at home.
For many sweets lovers, Greenspan’s name is synonymous with one thing above all: amazing cookies. So we couldn’t let her go without asking her to share a few of her best cookie tips, too. Here’s what we learned. Read more

Butter is back — though depending on whom you ask, it never went away — and there’s no better time to celebrate it than on one of the most butter-friendly holidays of the year.
We’re starting to see more and more varieties of butter in stores — not just the regular salted and unsalted sticks, but local butters, grass-fed butters, cultured (sometimes called European-style) butters and even goat butters. Here’s what you need to know for your butteriest Thanksgiving yet.

In anticipation of Mother’s Day, we asked staffers in Food Network Kitchen to share favorite recipes from their mothers (and grandmothers, too). Their personal picks ranged from classic Chocolate Pudding and creamy Cheesecake to bright Vietnamese Chicken Salad and hearty Pasta e Fagioli, all of which prompted us to clean our plates and politely ask for more during tastings in the test kitchen. One thing’s for sure: These moms raised some amazing cooks. Share one of their recipes with your mom this Mother’s Day, or get inspired by the staffers’ stories and treat her to a favorite dish from your own childhood.
Mom’s Chocolate Pudding
This pudding, made with a mix of cocoa powder and semisweet chocolate, was a favorite childhood treat of Food Network test kitchen manager Claudia Sidoti, who says the dessert “makes me remember my mom and all the fun and nostalgia of my childhood in the 1960s and ’70s.”
Fans of Food Network are now one step closer to experiencing Food Network Kitchens firsthand. Food Network Kitchen, a grab-and-go and dine-in restaurant is now open at Terminal 3 in the Fort Lauderdale Airport.
Customers can feast on foods inspired by the flavors of Florida and made using local ingredients, such as the Lauderdale Club Sandwich made with Key lime mayo, the Florida Shrimp Po’Boy or the Florida Caesar Salad with crunchy plantain chips (to name just a few menu items), all while watching favorite Food Network shows.
Wash your meal down with choice wine, local beers and cocktails — the experts have already taken all the guess work out for you by pairing your dish with entwine wine.
