Peanut Butter Banana Cupcakes

I couldn’t make up my mind whether to make peanut butter or banana cupcakes. Peanut butter seemed like it might be too heavy on its own, while banana sounded like it might be too sweet. I was looking for something light, wiht a nice flavor, when it occured to be to combine the two. Reflecting back on the decision-making process, it should have taken far ... Read More »

Whole Grain Pancakes with Blackberry Maple Syrup

Sometimes, I get tired of plain or simple buttermilk pancakes. Part of the reason is that I like a lot of variety in my foods and a part of the reason is this blog. Not that I’m begrudging my own blog anything, but posting does keep me from repeating myself too often. I stumbled upon this pancake recipe on Epicurious when I was looking for ... Read More »

Oatmeal Molasses Batter Bread

I’ve talked about batter breads before. Their main advantage is that they are incredibly simple, involving no kneading and still produce an excellent loaf. It is so simple, in fact, that there is not much to say about it! This recipe makes one loaf with a soft, moist open crumb and a slightly crisp, thin crust. I mixed up the dough in my stand mixer, ... Read More »

Artichoke and Parmesan Bread Pudding

And there are also occasions when it is good to know how to whip one up, since they are versatile, easy and quite ... Read More »

Quick Cheddar and Dill Biscuits

That is why it is nice to be able to put together something very quick, like ... Read More »

Chocolate Waffles

Usually, I’m more of a pancake girl than a waffle one, but I do enjoy the lovely crispness that waffles have – not to mention the delicious way that they soak up syrup. So, every once in a while, I like to do the waffle thing. These waffles have been lurking in the back of my mind since I first saw McAuliflower do them at ... Read More »

Banana Oatmeal Cookies

I have tried several times in the past to incorporate bananas into cookies, simply because there are not all that many banana flavored cookies out there. Is banana a less popular flavor than I previously imagined? Perhaps not. The reason that I have never posted a banana cookie recipe before is that they haven’t turned out so well. They have been cakey and, in some ... Read More »

Lemon Chiffon Pie

The first time that I ever had a chiffon pie was when I made a strawberry chiffon pie from Retro Desserts. It was delicious and very impressive looking, piled high and pink in its crust. It was described as being a fruit mousse piled into a pie crust, which is exactly what it is. Come to think of it, Wayne Harley Brachman actually has a ... Read More »
