Strawberry Whole Wheat Pancakes

This is one of my favorite bakingsheet photos of all time, I think. Just looking at the photo reminds me of how delicious these pancakes were and how I wouldn’t mind having another plate-full right now. Going for something healthy for breakfast, I used whole wheat flour and wheat bran in these. I was hoping for something hearty, but not expecting a whole lot in ... Read More »

Daim Cookies

Daim are Swedish candies that have pieces of crunchy caramel enrobed in creamy milk chocolate. Though firm at room temperature, when you heat them the caramel becomes soft and chewy. I bought them at the Swedish market at Ikea, though some specialty foods stores will carry them in the states. If you can find them, it is worth picking up a package because they have ...

Naan

I went back to a Paul Hollywood recipe for this week’s Cooking School. I’ve mentioned before how much I admire him and love his recipes, so often I’ll turn to his book, 100 Great Breads, when I’m looking for inspiration. This week I chose to make a favorite flatbread of mine: naan. Naan is a traditional Central and south-East Asian bread that is baked in ... Read More »

Yogurt Panna Cotta

As much as Valentine’s Day is know for its decadent and indulgent desserts, I still like something light after a delicious meal. Heck, I’m not averse to a light dessert at any time, since I am much more likely to have room to fit it in. Panna cotta is often regarded as a light dessert, in the sense that it is incredibly delicate and really ... Read More »

Two Tone Chocolate Peanut Butter Stars

I must say that I simply adore the look of these cookies. I believe that the recipe is originally from the Cookie Bible, but since I jotted it down some time ago, it is quite dfficult for me to say precisely. I also found the same original recipe online in at least one place, so it is entirely possible that I saw it somewhere else, ... Read More »

Blueberry Muesli Bread

Muesli is basically a combination of uncooked oats with fruits, nuts and sometimes spices that is lightly toasted and sweetened, then stored dry, rather like an uncooked granola mixture. It is great as a snack, a hot cereal, a cold cereal or as a healthy topping for something like ice cream. I personally like snacking on it in the morning, but here I decided to ... Read More »

A vacation recap, with waffles

o I set my alarm for 2:30 in the morning, after packing my bag with water, flashlight, camera, sunblock and granola. I definately didn’t get enough sleep that night, but then, neither did anyone else. When the alarms sounded, we quickly dressed – warmly and in layers – before piling into our rented car and driving the 45 minutes out to the beginning of the ... Read More »

Oatmeal Crunch Squares

I realise that I don’t do very many”bar cookies” on baking sheet. Sure, I have brownies and blondies, if you count those, but I think the world of bar cookies has a lot more to offer than the basics. The reason I don’t do more of these is that cookies generally tend to be easier to store and take less time to bake. Somehow, whenever ... Read More »
