KATHARINE TRAUGER: My Repeat Performance Rosemary Cake

I love rosemary and grow my own, two huge bushes of it, so I will never run out.

You would find—if you were to visit me—that besides in the garden, rosemary has won a role in every act that plays in my kitchen. And I don’t mean the cute little wreath I keep hanging around, constructed from a few of its magnificent bowers. Nope.

Appearing in the salad dressing, rosemary is a bit player. In soups, it lends a dramatic melody. In meat dishes, it often has a supporting role. Veggies shine in the rosemary spotlight. And added to pasta, Brava!

The most fun role for rosemary, though, is dessert.

It’s a sweet love story! 

And my latest food adventure? Creating a brand new rosemary cake recipe, of course! What fun!  READ MORE
