Blogging by mail returns!

For all of you who have e-mailed me over the past few months, asking when we were going to have another round of Blogging By Mail, your time has come. The global, non-digital event has returned! When I started Blogging By Mail, back before any of the other postal-blogging events did, I might add, I didn’t know it would be as popular as it was. ... Read More »

Red Pepper, Onion and Cheese Omelet

The trick to making an omelet is to practice. The more often you make them, the easier they’ll be to do. An omelet is sort of like a large egg pancake, if you’ve never had one before. The egg mixture has eggs (of course), a little milk or water and seasonings, then it is poured into a pan and cooked until just firm, before being ... Read More »

Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches

chocolate and vanilla ice cream sandwiches

 I had a good time with the two-tone milkshakes that I made last week and decided to use the same effect to make these ice cream sandwiches. And by this, I mean that I made them with half vanilla filling and half chocolate. Ice cream sandwiches are really simple to make because you don’t have to actually make anything in order to make them. You ... Read More »

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are, hands down, the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies I have ever made and probably the best I have ever eaten. Granted, I actually make things that I like more than these (sometimes you feel like a muffin, not a cookie), but I have never seen someone not reach for a second cookies straight away. They are fantastic – slightly crispy on the edges ... Read More »

Lemon and Candied Ginger Muffins

While we were at BlogHer, Elise told me a story of some semi-disastrous lemon muffins that she had recently tried to make from a recipe given to her by a friend. What precisely caused the muffins to fail was a mystery, since the friend who supplied the recipe later had the same difficulty, despite the fact that she had succeeded with the muffins in the ...

BlogHer 2006

(Photo of food blogging group by Elise Bauer) I’m back from BlogHer and I have to say that it was a wonderful event. I was able to meet a number of food bloggers, as well as a few people who were interested in getting started with food blogging. It is fascinating to hear people talk about why they blog and why they love it, and ... Read More »

Rice Pudding Ice Cream

I know that I’ve been doing a lot of ice cream posts lately, but with the temperatures getting to over 100F on a regular basis here over the last month, it’s hard not to want a lot of cold food. Besides, I tend to make small batches of ice creams – not to mention that Sarah’s chosen theme for this month’s Sugar High Friday was ... Read More »

Intense Chocolate Gelato

Intense chocolate gelato

Gelato is Italian ice cream. While in composition it is not that different from other frozen treats, there are a couple of things that set it apart from a standard ice cream. First, it is generally made with more milk milk than heavy cream. Some recipes use all milk, as this one does, and others use just a touch of cream. I’ve had many shopkeepers ... Read More »
