Sugar and Spice

Chili Raspberry Brownies
Cool weather ahead! Time for a fire in the hearth, an extra blanket on the bed. You can turn up your internal thermostat, too, with warming spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and pepper to create a cozy feeling from the inside out.

Here’s a tour of the world of spices, along with usage tips and some of our favorite sweet-and-spicy recipes for now through the new year.

Baker's Profile

Norrinda Brown Hayat

(L-R) Norrinda Brown Hayat, Betty Hinton, and Linda Hinton Brown in the kitchen.
It all started with a pound cake—a light, moist, “mile-high” vanilla cake that Linda Hinton Brown’s mother, Elizabeth Ruth (“Betty”) Hinton, taught her to make when she was a little girl. Linda’s daughter, Norrinda Brown Hayat, watched her grandmother make that cake every weekend until she went away to college, and that 100-year-old recipe inspired Norrinda and Linda to open Brown Betty Dessert Boutique in Philadelphia’s Northern Liberties District—and to publish a cookbook filled with the bakery’s most popular recipes.
