At Hot Cakes Molten Chocolate Cakery, the Seattle shop famous for deceivingly small chocolate cakes baked to order, it's easy to be sidetracked by the main event. When you're waiting in line — because yes, you'll probably have to wait — the scent of chocolate hovers overhead like a heavy cloud. It's easy to imagine that at any moment, the cloud will burst and Seattle's rain will turn into hot, thick chocolate. But curb your imagination: You need to focus not just on the cakes, but also on the milkshakes, which come both straight-up and laced with (usually local) booze. Our favorite, the "Extra Dark Caramel and Rye" shake, is made with the rye caramel they make in house.

I love quick breads because they usually don't require an electric mixer — a little elbow grease and a rubber spatula is enough to whip them up. But they're usually on the sweet side, with banana or pumpkin bread being the most common varieties. It turns out quick breads are also a great base for savory flavors, too. This one is seasoned with all the flavors of a fresh homemade ranch dressing and made with under-appreciated cottage cheese for the best overall texture.

Have you ever had summer fruit so sweet, so juicy, and so fragrant that the mere thought of boiling it away with sugar until jammy made you just plain sad? This summer, on a quest to preserve strawberries from a sunny afternoon of U-pick fun, I discovered no-cook freezer jam. The resulting jam is so vibrant and fresh-tasting, it's as if the ripe fruit never met heat and its succulent qualities were frozen in time by the freezer.

Regular jam-making and canning are old favorites of mine, but freezer jam is freedom from those times when the hours of boiling fruit and water baths are not only arduous, but also impractical. No-cook freezer jam is the answer for anyone who wants to make jam, but doesn't have the time, space, or patience required for traditional jam-making. The fact that it turns stunning fruit into an impeccable jam will make you fall in love with it.
