Sugar Donut Muffins

Sugar Donut Muffins

While a donut with white frosting and a generous topping of rainbow sprinkles was never turned down, sugar donuts were always my favorite when I was a kid. I liked the subtle crunch of all that extra sugar on top of a light, fluffy donut. They’re still a top choice for me now, although I think they’ve lost their top ranking to plain, old-fashioned cake ... Read More »

Head Chefs Kid's Posable Silicone Kitchen Utensils

Part cooking tool, part toy and – dare I say it? – all fun. I absolutely love the look of this Head Chefs Kids Kitchen Utensils set. Each kid-sized kitchen tool starts with a poseable figurine and is then topped off with a kitchen tool head. The concept sounds strange, but the execution is fantastic. The set is made entirely of food-grade silicone and includes ... Read More »

What is Greek yogurt?

Greek Yogurt

Yogurt, sour cream and buttermilk can all be lumped into the same category when it comes to baking. They’re all dairy products that help to tenderize baked goods and can be a bit on the tangy side. At least, plain yogurt can be a bit on the tangy side. For years, it seemed like the only way you could buy yogurt was pumped full of ... Read More »

Romeo and Julienne Cutting Board

When I was little, I was once given a kids “spy kit” that included things like a magnifying glass, a badge and something that looked like a book, but was really a treasure box. The box was the best part of the kit; it really looked like a book and when it was on a shelf, you’d never even know it was there. I like ... Read More »

I always make too much spaghetti when I cook it for dinner. In fact, I always make too much pasta of any shape. In an effort to control the problem, I used to try and measure out how much pasta I was using with a scale or a measuring cup, but since I inevitably ended up throwing an extra handful or two into the pot ...

Bites from other Blogs

I like ravioli. I love cupcakes. I certainly never expected to see the two things directly linked together in one dish, yet Cupcake Project posted an intriguing recipe for Toasted Ravioli Cupcakes this week. There are about a week of posts describing every bit of the process of making Apple Cinnamon Ravioli, frying them until they’re nice and toasty, then using them to top of ... Read More »

Ghirardelli Chocolate for Baking, reviewed

Ghirardelli Chocolate for Baking

Ghirardelli has just introduced a new line of gourmet Chocolate for Baking, trying to expand consumer perception of their brand and appeal to some new buyers. Previously, Ghirardelli has offered chocolate chips and baking bars to cooking consumers, but this new line seems to be intended to compete with some of the other big chocolate-makers that cater to those doing more than mixing up a ...

Fall Cookie Stamps

Drop cookies are probably more popular than cutout cookies, if for no other reason than they are easier to make. It’s not that cutout cookies are difficult, they just involve a longer prep time while you wait for the dough to chill, roll out the dough and finally cut your shapes out. Using cookie cutters to slice up the dough is the most time-consuming part ... Read More »
