First up this week is Simply Recipes‘ Meyer Lemon Marmalade. Not only was I contemplating doing this myself all week, but I was actually just given a freshly packed jar from the Davis, California farmer’s market. Not to knock the farmer’s market version, I’m pretty sure that Elise’s recipe is even better. I’ll still live with what I have at the moment before making a ... Read More »

I don’t remember how old I was when I first saw a Yin-Yang sign, but I do remember that I immediately fell in love with the design. So, of course, I was taken with the Yin-Yang Cookies that I Shot The Chef made in honor of Chinese New Year. The cookies are made of vanilla and chocolate doughs that are molded together – in perfect ... Read More »

Homemade Kisses for Valentine’s Day

Bakerella's Homemade Kisses!!!

Her kisses look like big version’s of the Hershey’s classic – down to the silver wrapper and customizable pull tags – but are perhaps even more delicious.

After making my clafoutis-like crustless quichelast week, I’ve been thinking more and more about delicious clafoutis. Cherries are pretty much the most traditionally used fruit, but I love Crispy Waffle‘s take, a tempting sounding Raspberry Almond Clafoutis. The best part, given that we’re still in the middle of winter, is that you can use frozen berries and still get a great result. Continuing on a ... Read More »

This week’s bites are all over the place – no theme here. A couple on the decadent dessert side and a couple on the savory side.  All, as usual, look very tempting. I don’t know how many of you are fans of Starbucks Frappuccinos, but I’m going to assume that you’ve had at least one or two blended coffee drinks that you’ve enjoyed. If so, ... Read More »

Normally, I won’t spotlight my own recipe if it has been featured (and enjoyed) by another blogger, largely because there are so many other things out there. That said, I thought I’d start off this week’s Bites by pointing out Baking Love‘s rendition of my Peppermint Cookies and Cream brownies because her version is gluten free! It’s a great and creative twist and, for my ... Read More »

“Easy” must have been a quality on my mind this week, as most of the recipes that appealed to me were the kind that baked fast and came together even faster. This leaves more time for snacking – and more time to look for even more recipes, right? Recipes that turn out jumbo-sized cookies tend not to make too many of them, largely because you’re getting two or ... Read More »
