Blueberry Muesli Bread

Muesli is basically a combination of uncooked oats with fruits, nuts and sometimes spices that is lightly toasted and sweetened, then stored dry, rather like an uncooked granola mixture. It is great as a snack, a hot cereal, a cold cereal or as a healthy topping for something like ice cream. I personally like snacking on it in the morning, but here I decided to ... Read More »

A vacation recap, with waffles

o I set my alarm for 2:30 in the morning, after packing my bag with water, flashlight, camera, sunblock and granola. I definately didn’t get enough sleep that night, but then, neither did anyone else. When the alarms sounded, we quickly dressed – warmly and in layers – before piling into our rented car and driving the 45 minutes out to the beginning of the ... Read More »

Oatmeal Crunch Squares

I realise that I don’t do very many”bar cookies” on baking sheet. Sure, I have brownies and blondies, if you count those, but I think the world of bar cookies has a lot more to offer than the basics. The reason I don’t do more of these is that cookies generally tend to be easier to store and take less time to bake. Somehow, whenever ... Read More »

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 »
