Banana Gingerbread

banana ginerbread

In the mood for something to pair with that gingerbread latte? Almost any sweet cake, bread or cookie can go with the coffee drink, but with the Christmas season approaching, this seems like as good a time as any to play up the gingerbread flavor by matching the drink with an equally seasonal treat. In this case, I’m talking about banana gingerbread. Banana gingerbread, as ... Read More »

Turkey, Cranberry and Brie Panini

Turkey, Cranberry and Brie sandwich

Does anyone besides me have leftover turkey around the house today?  Thanksgiving is one holiday where people look forward to leftovers just as much as they do to the actual dinner. There is always a ton of food to work with (especially if your family is anything like mine and tends to overcook for the original meal) and there are lots of things you can do with ... Read More »

Maple Cornbread Stuffing

cornbread stuffing

There are some schools of thought that say you shouldn’t use the same kind of cornbread that you like to eat plain when you are making a cornbread stuffing. They suggest using denser or sturdier cornbread that won’t break or crumble when mixed in, but will hold its shape just like bread cubes do. My feeling is that if your cornbread is good when eaten ... Read More »

Gingerbread Latte

gingerbread latte

I like to remake versions of my favorite coffee shop drinks at home when I can. It saves money, it’s easier than running out to pick one up at the coffeehouse and it allows me to play around with my options a little bit more than I could otherwise. In the past, I’ve done Mexican Spice Ice Blendeds, Pumpkin Spice Mochas and winter-spiced coffee. This ... Read More »

Maple Cornbread

cornbread with maple syrup and butter

Sweet or savory, I like cornbread in just about any form it comes in. But if I have to choose between the two, I’ll opt for slightly sweet over savory almost every time. This is simply because I feel that sweet cornbread is slightly more versatile. It goes well with chilis, meats and other savory/spicy foods and can also be eaten with jam for breakfast. ...

Caramel-Glazed Apple Spice Cupcakes

cranberry applesauce cupcakes with caramel glaze

When I made my big batch of cranberry applesauce last week, I wasn’t sure what do do with all of it. I’m not really into canning and, when I make something like applesauce or jam, I prefer just to work my way through it right away. Jam is more limited in its uses, but applesauce can have a variety of applications beyond being a simple ... Read More »

Turkey Cake with Chocolate Maple Glaze

Sick and tired of looking for vegetarian Thanksgiving options to feed your non-meat eating friends and family? I think that I may have the perfect solution. Just kidding, unless you’re planning on serving dessert as the main course (not necessarily a course of action I would disagree with) at Thanksgiving dinner. This turkey cake is just that: a vanilla buttermilk sheet cake sculpted into a three dimensional ... Read More »

Curried Wheat Bread

curried bread, sliced

 A few weeks ago, I went out for lunch with a friend of mine to one of my favorite restaurants. It was a relatively chilly day and I opted for soup, served with some excellent multi-grain bread. She chose a sandwich special and while neither of us remember what was on the sandwich, we both remember the golden bread it was served on: a whole ... Read More »
