Fresh Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

Fresh Strawberry Frozen Yogurt, coned

Almost every shop that sells frozen yogurt is now offering “tart” yogurt, which is little more than yogurt-flavored yogurt, complete with the tang of the real thing. I like it, but not as much as I like regular yogurt or my homemade frozen yogurt, which uses a base of tangy Greek-style yogurt that is lightened with beaten egg whites. The tartness of the commercial frozen ... Read More »

Sno-Balls, or Snowballs, are a type of snack cake made by Hostess that feature a chocolate cake surrounded by a marshmallow frosting then rolled in coconut to give it a fluffy, snowy look.

Easy Homemade Horchata

Horchata is a broad name for any of a variety of drinks, popular in Spanish countries like Spain and Mexico, that start out with a nut or grain soaked in water. The drinks are often similar to products like rice milk and other nondairy milks, but usually have a much creamier consistency and are both sweetened and spiced. Most recipes that I’ve seen feature both ... Read More »

Oatnut Sandwich Bread

Oatnut Sandwich Bread

I will always be a fan of white-ish sandwich breads – not necessarily “white bread”, but buttermilk, potato and similarly pale and soft breads that are versatile and toast well – but I also like to get some variety into my sandwiches with whole grain breads, as well. One bread I particularly like right now is Oroweat‘s Oatnut Bread. As the name suggests, the bread ... Read More »

Lime, White Chocolate and Macadamia Nut Cookies

Lime, White Chocolate and Macadamia Nut Cookies

The beautiful thing about a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie is how white chocolate and macadamia nuts work so well together. They’re even appealing to people who aren’t big fans of either of the major components. On their own, white chocolate is too sweet for some and macadamia nuts can be too rich. Together, the creaminess of the white chocolate matches the crunch of the ... Read More »

Coconut Banana Bread

Banana bread is one of those recipes that is a classic just as it is and, while it’s fun to tweak it every once in a while for variety, I find that I always go back to the original. Of course, that was before I tried playing around with coconut in my banana bread. I think I have a new “basic” now. Coconut is a ... Read More »
