Sour Cream Streusel Coffee Cake

I like a good superlative as much as the next person, but I’m not one to throw around words like “amazing” and “the best” lightly when it comes to a recipe. In fact, I probably wouldn’t use them myself to describe this particular coffee cake. I will say, however, that the lucky people who got to sample this used those exact words to describe this ...

The Cheeseboard’s Currant Scones

It’s not really possible to eat low fat all the time, not without missing out on something really tasty every once in a while, so even if your New Year’s resolution is to eat healthier, just keep in mind that eating healthier doesn’t have to mean excluding everything that could be described as “decadent.” It just means eating less of those items. Really good scones ... Read More »

Baked Apples

Baked apples are something that I don’t make very often because it is just so much easier and faster to eat the apple as it is. Of course, when you do that, you’re not getting the warmth and tenderness that a baked apple has, which can be very satisfying on a winter day. The apples are very easy to make, since they’re basically just apples ... Read More »

Sunday Brunch: The Best Buttermilk Pancakes

Best Buttermilk Pancakes

One of the first recipes I made on this site was for buttermilk pancakes. The recipe was one I used frequently, probably for years, with only tiny variations as I never really looked at a written recipe when I went to make them. Those pancakes are slightly thicker a puffier, although still tender and not too heavy. This new recipe is why it sometimes pays ... Read More »

Meyer Lemon Scones

Meyer lemons, as I have mentioned before, are a type of lemon that is actually a hybrid between a tangerine or mandarin orange and a lemon. As a result, the fruit is slightly smaller than your average lemon and significantly sweeter, although it still has a very lemony flavor. Tasting a meyer lemon is more like tasting lemonade – albeit tart lemonade – than a ... Read More »

Apple Spice Vegan Wafffles

I know that I’ve mentioned before how I don’t like breakfast to be a fattening affair. Once in a while? Sure, but because I really enjoy breakfast foods and want to have them more than once in a blue moon, I like to work out ways to have my cake – waffles, in this case – and eat it, too. These waffles are based on ... Read More »

Nectarine Scones

Normally, I’m not a huge fan of fresh fruit in a scone. Dried fruits are easier to control and produce consistent, flavorful results. I feel like the fresh fruits release too much moisture and have a negative effect on the texture of the final product. This is especially true of berries, but the firmer the fruits get, the better the scone. Apples work fairly well ... Read More »

French Toast Waffles

Pancakes, french toast, waffles… sometimes it seems that breakfast options are so limited. This is, of course, a ridiculous notion that only exists because I tend to make the same basic recipes repeatedly. After all, it’s hard to go wrong with buttermilk pancakes. One way to spice up breakfast is by adding new spice combinations and fruits, but another way is to think a little ... Read More »
