Hot Artichoke Dip

I know that I have been posting a lot of artichoke recipes in the last week or so. I apologise, or, I would if I didn’t like artichokes so much. This dip recipe comes from EatingWell magazine, which means that not only is it very tasty, but it is quite healthy. This is a feat indeed, since that majority of artichoke dips are very high ...

All Purpose Cornbread

Cornbread is a food that has inspired a lot of debate. Do you like the southern, unsweetened, skillet-baked version with its crispy crust? Do you prefer the high rising, soft and sweet northern-style cornbread, which is almost a sort of cake? Maybe it’s because I’m out on the coast, but I like both types of cornbread. While the lovers and the haters fight it out ... Read More »

Blueberry Pecan Coffee Cake

I read quite a few food magazines every month. Given that I also have a fair number of cookbooks, recipes from other blogs and recipes that I either make up or have ideas for, I have accumulated quite a backlog of recipes and a magazine recipe has to be pretty appealing for me to bump it up in the queue. I picked up a copy ... Read More »

Cranberry Citrus Cornmeal Cookies

I would have been tempted to simply call these “Alliterative Cookies”, were it not for the fact that alliterative does not start with the letter “c”. I like the way the current name just rolls of the tongue, though I will admit that I spent a bit of time switching the order of the words around. This is an adaptation of a recipe found in ...

Hawaiian Sweet Bread

Hawaiian sweet bread was my favorite sandwich bread growing up, though I did not have it often. Even better was the fact that not only could I use it to make my peanut butter and jelly before school, but when there was a loaf of it in the house I could have really delicious toast for breakfast, too. Hawaiian sweet bread seems to be the ... Read More »

Artichoke and Yukon Gold Potato Gratin

Artichoke and Yukon Gold Potato Gratin

I am not normally a big fan of wet, cheesy dishes, particularly if they are likely to contain large amounts of improperly cooked potatoes. Unfortunately, this includes almost all varieties of potatoes au gratin, which can be tasty but are often poorly done. Despite my general reluctance to make this type of a dish, this Leite’s Culinaria won me over with three simple things. First, ... Read More »

Chunky Brownie Frozen Yogurt

I am a big fan of frozen desserts, but as good as ice cream is, it can actually be a bit rich for me at times. I prefer it when the weather isn’t quite so hot, since its creaminess actually makes me incredibly thirsty. It’s good to drink lots of fluids on a hot day, of course, but I don’t want to get thirstier when ... Read More »

Artichoke Ceasar Salad

I find it difficult to write actual “recipes” for salads. In my experience, people do not often measure the amount of lettuce, tomato, etc. that they are adding. You add whatever you have on hand and you add how ever much of it as you want. Maybe people don’t eat a lot of salad at home because they are put off by this lack of ... Read More »
