The perfect Cuppa

cuppa mugs

People have¬†always gotten along just fine by “eyeballing” the amount of cream or milk that they add to their coffee. But why estimate when you can get your cup of coffee or tea just the way you like it every time without guessing? One solution is to emulate a few of the more precise coffee drinkers out there and measure the exact amount of milk ... Read More »

Finding luxury on the dessert menu

fortress dessert

Have you ever come home from a wonderful dinner out and bragged about how much you paid for dessert? Unless your dessert was complimentary, I’m willing to bet that you’re much more likely to discuss the dessert itself and not its price – especially if it was on the expensive side. But that doesn’t stop luxury resorts with high-end restaurants from adding ever more expensive ... Read More »

3D Halloween Cookie Cutters

3d halloween cookies

Halloween is not a holiday that is as baking/cooking oriented as some others are. The holiday prep in stores tends to focus on candy and decorations, and virtually no one would consider baking something homemade to hand out to trick-or-treaters (unless they were already quite familiar with the children/family in question) because the treat that they had worked so hard to put together would very ...

Marbled Banana Bundt Cake

Marbled Banana Bundt Cake

I like the idea of an everyday cake, a delicious cake that you can whip up on relatively short notice that is simple enough that you’l want to make it even when you’re on your own, but could still be served to company in place of something more elaborate.

Vosges introduces bacon chocolate bar

vosges bacon chocolate bar

At the end of last year, I notedon Slashfood that there were a tremendous number of bacon-themed and bacon-flavored products out there that you wouldn’t expect – and that people were coming up with new ones all the time. Bacon cereal, bacon breakfast cookies, bacon sandwiches and bacon wallets are just a few. But the vast majority of the bacon creations were homemade ones (like ... Read More »

Color Mist Food Sprays

The Color Mist Food Color Sprays from Wilton are interesting products, colorful spray decorators that give a cake (or cupcake or cookie) an airbrushed look. There aren’t too many similar things on the market unless you want to invest in a professional-type airbrusher, that pro bakers sometimes use to finish off some of their creations. Wilton says that they are “taste-free” and only add color. ... Read More »
