Bites from other Blogs

  • Today is Canada Day, and in tribute, Dinner with Julie baked some Maple Cupcakes. Maple cupcakes are a fitting treat for the holiday because maple syrup is so closely associated with Canada and Canadian foods. The cupcakes have quite a bit of maple syrup in the cake itself, and are topped off with a decadent maple syrup frosting. If you want to take the maple flavor even further, try to track down some maple sugar to replace the regular sugar called for in the recipe.
  • Both cheesecakes and apple pie are staples of American dessert menus, but there is absolutely no reason that the two couldn’t be combined into one rich, creamy, fruit-filled dessert, like the Brown Sugar Apple Cheesecake at Eat Me Delicious. This cheesecake has a gingersnap crust, made with all the usual apple pie spices, and is filled with a layer of light-sauteed apples. Although cream cheese isn’t typically found in apple pies, all the flavors of regular apple pie can be found in this cheesecake, making it novel and familiar at the same time.
  • Tomatoes are in season and very plentiful. When you have good, fresh tomatoes, you probably want to enjoy them as close to their natural state as possible. Ezra Pound Cake‘s Fresh Tomato Tart with a Basil-Garlic Crust is a good way to do that, and a nice change from making just another salad. The tart is filled with a simple mixture of mozzarella, tomatoes and olive oil. The filling sits in a savory crust flavored with fresh basil and garlic.
  • The Apple Popovers from The Way It Crumbles are a twist on apple pie that I haven’t seen before! For this recipe, apples are diced up and caramelized on the stovetop with sugar and butter. The apple mixture is then ladled into the center muffin cups already filled with popover batter. When the popovers bake, they form a light “crust” around the apple mixture and leave you with a treat that could be served for dessert, breakfast or just eaten as a snack. Don’t forget the ice cream if you’re looking to make them a little more like regular apple pie!
  • When I think of whoopie pies, I tend to think of chocolate cookies with a cream filling. Sweet Charity Pie‘s Lemon Whoopie Pies may not be perfectly traditional in that respect, but they certainly sound like a refreshing change of pace. The cookies are soft, almost cake-like, and are packed with lemon zest. The cream cheese filling also has more lemon juice and zest in it to give the cookies a bright flavor. These keep well and travel easily, so they’re a great choice for summer barbecues and parties.

  1. Pretty cool post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say
    that I have really liked reading your blog posts. Anyway

  2. I don’t usually reply to posts but I will in this case. I’ve been experiencing this very same problem with a new WordPress installation of mine. I’ve spent weeks calibrating and getting it ready when all of a sudden… I cannot delete any content. It’s a workaround that, although isn’t perfect, does the trick so thanks! I really hope this problem gets solved properly asap.
