How to turn aebeskiver

Aebleskiver are popping up all over the place. The shaped pans are available in just about every kitchen store, while just a few short years ago, very few consumers (US consumers, at least, as the pans are a Danish) had heard of the pancakes. Well, some people still aren’t sure on the name because those kitchen stores tend to prefer calling them “pancake puffs,” “filled ... Read More »

Love Silicone Cake Pan

Love Silicone Cake Pan

Heart shapes for Valentine’s Day sweets are commonplace. Chocolate candies can turn up in heart shapes, and it’s easy to find cookie cutters that are, too. One of the reasons I find this Love Silicone Cake Pan to be so appealing is that it’s just a little more interesting than your standard-issue heart shaped pan. The pan is shaped into the word “Love” and it ... Read More »

Key lime pie is such a great way to use up a few limes. The standard key lime pie filling only really has three ingredients, and since it’s usually poured into a graham cracker crust, using a ready-made one brings the time required to make the pie down to almost nothing – although it’s worth noting that the pie must be allowed to set-up in ...

Trader Joe’s Meyer Lemon Cookie Thins, reviewed

Trader Joe's Meyer Lemon Cookie Thins

As a result, I was a bit reluctant to try Trader Joe’s Meyer Lemon Cookie Thins at first, but was willing to give TJ’s the benefit of the doubt ... Read More »

Chocolate Football Cakes

Chocolate Football Cakes

The Super Bowl isn’t a holiday, but it is one of the biggest events – sporting or otherwise – of the year. Last year, in 2008, over 97 million people tuned in to watch the Big Game. I suspect that most of those people were sitting around with family and friends, either at a small gathering or a big party. I know that I was. ... Read More »

Everyone who bakes – bakes from scratch, that is, and maybe some who don’t – has at least one bag of chocolate chips in the pantry. Chocolate chip cookies are one of the most basic and most popular treats out there. There is a lot more to chocolate chips than chocolate chip cookies, however, and The Essential Chocolate Chip Cookbook sets out to showcase some ... Read More »
