Lemon Scented Popovers

I like popovers. I like the way they’re crispy on the outside and custardy on the inside. They take almost no time to make and look impressive. I used this recipe from Epicurious and added 1 tbsp of lemon zest and 1 tsp vanilla. I think the lemon flavor would have been even more pronounced with a tablespoon of lemon juice, or a bit of ...

Sunday Brunch: Bill Granger’s Scrambled Eggs

If you have ever visited or read a review of bills in Sydney, Aus., chances are you are aware that Bill Granger produces exceptional scrambled eggs. They are incredibly light, fluffy and creamy. They also contain 1/3 cup of cream for 2 eggs. Now, I am so fortunate as to have had the eggs on a visit to bills and can assure you that it ... Read More »

Cinnamon Buns

Cinnamon Buns

As far as I can tell, the difference between a cinnamon roll and a cinnamon bun is that the latter has some sort of icing, while the former does not. I find this to be somewhat akin to the difference between cupcakes and muffins. While there are plenty of roll recipes, many bun recipes seem to be for “sticky buns”. Now I like a bit ...

Sunday Brunch: Plain Waffles

Despite the fact that this may not be the prettiest waffle, I rather like the way it turned out to be almost circular. I will, however, practice filling my waffle iron. Last time I posted about making waffles for breakfast, I based my recipe on one from America’s Test Kitchen, where I was assured by the testers that a thicker waffle batter produced waffles far ...

Sfogliatine con Crema di Mascarpone

This month’s Sugar High Friday theme was puff pastry, hosted by Clement at A La Cuisine!. I have to admit that it put me in a bit of a tight spot. When I am looking to make something sweet, I tend to shy away from things that seem to be already put together (read: puff pastry, I’m just trying to phrase it nicely). To me, ... Read More »

Sunday Brunch: Buttermilk Pancakes

Another lovely Sunday brunch. Pancakes are always a good option for breakfast. It only takes a few minutes to whip up the batter and a few more before they’re done. I love baked goods, too – muffins, scones, etc – but prefer not to have the wait for them to be ready early in the morning. I like to eat breakfast first thing and am ... Read More »

Chai Spiced Oatmeal

In this month’s issue of EatingWell – which is, by the way, a wonderful foodie magazine to check out – there was an article on mangos. Gorgeous, versatile, tasty and in season. The article was accompanied by several recipes offering suggestions on how to showcase this fruit in various dishes. One recipe in particular caught my eye: Chai Spiced Bread Pudding with Mango. I’ve been ... Read More »

Sunday Brunch: Buttermilk Waffles

This morning I made brunch for my parents using the waffle iron my mother got for Christmas. I believe their old waffle iron was at least ten years old. It worked, but had a variety of problems including the lack of an indicator light of any sort. It was difficult to tell how long it needed to heat up and when the waffle was finished ... Read More »
