Individual Baked French Toasts

I know that this looks like bread pudding, but it’s not. Generally, bread puddings have a higher milk-to-egg ratio than french toast does and while I do make a good bread pudding, it’s just not my favorite thing to eat. So this, for all that it looks like bread pudding, is actually french toast is disguised as a pudding. Believe it or not, there is ... Read More »

Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns

Everybody is interested in whole grain everything these days. While I am interested in having plenty of whole grains in my diet, I’m not that interested in having things that are enriched with whole grains, like a cereal that has 5% whole wheat flour or something. I like my grains to be either soft and white or totally wheaty. This isn’t to say that I ... Read More »

Chocolate Marble Yogurt Pound Cake

Looking at the picture of Rorie‘s recently baked marble bundt cake inspired me to pull out my copy of Alice Medrich’s Chocolate and the Art of Low Fat Desserts to make the very same recipe. I won’t go on about how much I love this cookbook (again), but I will say that this is an excellent cake and all the better because it’s actually quite ... Read More »

Cinnamon Raisin Bran Muffins

I have mentioned before that I am wary of bran muffins, because more often than not they just aren’t that good. They are overly bran-y, with a coarse, rough texture or they are practically dripping with oil, which neither improves the look or the taste of the muffin. I want bran muffins to be healthy and hearty, the sort of thing that you want to ... Read More »

Coconut Banana Macadamia Pancakes

Generally, I like my pancakes on the plain side. I go for buttermilk pancakes most of the time and, though I’ve been known to have a flavor or two, the thing that I most often add is blueberries. That being said, a little variation now and then is a good thing – hence the reason that I decided to cram so much flavor into these. ... Read More »

Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles!

Snickerdoodles are sugar cookies that are coated in cinnamon sugar. They usually have a cracked appearance and I have had ones that are both crisp and chewy. There is an added bonus to the cookies in that they have a fun name to say. Snickerdoodle Snickerdoodles are probably the single least offensive cookie that there is – which is to say that they will appeal ... Read More »

Multi-Grain Bread

I love multi-grain bread. I’m not talking about the kind that you buy in the supermarket, bagged and sliced next to the white bread. I’m talking about the hearty, flavorful kind that you can get on a sandwich at a really great cafe. It’s the kind of bread that is invariably paired with a “California style” sandwich, the one that always seems to include tomatoes, ... Read More »

Lots of Crumb Cake

Crumb cakes differ from coffee cakes, though both often have streusel or crumbs component, because a crumb cake is mostly crumb. Sure, coffee cakes will have some on top or swirled throughout, but the bulk of the batter is cake. In this instance, the bulk of the “batter” was crumb. The cake was a Martha Stewart recipe that I picked mainly on looks. Crumbs on ... Read More »
