Cake Mate flavored sugars

Cake Mate's flavored sugars

Vanilla sugar is one of those wonderful and easy to make ingredients that it is nice to have in the kitchen. Everything can do with a bit of vanilla, after all, whether you are adding a spoonful to a cup of tea, sprinkling the tops of muffins or simply creaming it into butter for a cookie dough.

Shortbread Lattes from Starbucks

SBL, shortbread latte

Last week, the Starbucks stores in my neighborhood rolled out their holiday drinks – namely the gingerbread (yum!), peppermint mocha and eggnog lattes. I noticed that several stores had special announcements of another drink: a shortbread latte. The drink wasn’t on the regular menu board, but merely written up on the chalkboard with the rest of the specials. My first thought was that it was a ... Read More »

Batter Blaster

Batter Blaster

I like to make pancakes and waffles from scratch and, while I don’t do it every day, it’s certainly not for lack of time.

Funfetti brownie mix

funfetti brownie mix

I’m not necessarily one to endorse using boxed mixes instead of baking from scratch, but there are certainly some decent mixes out there to choose from. Brownie mixes tend to be consistently good, for example, and it’s not bad to have one on hand for chocolate emergencies (especially if you have kids who don’t really want to wait around while you fiddle with butter and ...

Fried Ice Cream ice cream

fried ice cream ice cream

Fried ice cream is just what it sounds like: deep fried ice cream. It’s pretty easy to find on the menus at mexican chain restaurants, where a crispy coating of cinnamon, sugar and crumbled cornflakes seems to be the standard. If you want to fry your own, it’s a good idea to start with balls of ice cream that are as cold as you can possibly ... Read More »
