Artichoke Ceasar Salad

I find it difficult to write actual “recipes” for salads. In my experience, people do not often measure the amount of lettuce, tomato, etc. that they are adding. You add whatever you have on hand and you add how ever much of it as you want. Maybe people don’t eat a lot of salad at home because they are put off by this lack of ... Read More »

Sugarless Honey Tea Bread

The temptation to do a vegan recipe for this round of Sugar High Friday was high, with a theme of avoiding sugar from our host, Sam, of Becks N Posh. I considered going this route for some time before choosing not to. Honestly, I make quite a few vegan recipes and often simply experiment with them because the challenge of baking without eggs is fun ... Read More »

Eggless Chocolate Bundt Cake

The wacky cake (aka crazy cake) is sometimes known simply as a “dump cake”. Interesting and appetising (or not)┬ánames aside, it basically comes doen to one thing: this cake is made all in one bowl and has no egg, dairy or other animal products. It is leavened by the chemical reaction between baking soda and vinegar. The recipe originated in wartime, when there was a ... Read More »

Chewy Cheesecake Cookies

A while back, I saw a picture of some luscious looking cream cheese cookies at dessert comes first. Shortly thereafter, I received an e-mail request for cheesecake cookies. I knew I had to try. Cream cheese in used in many cookie recipes to enrich and soften a butter dough, but the flavor is subtle and often blends in with the butter. If you are told ... Read More »

Semi-Rustic Masa Bread

When I think of a rustic bread, I picture long, slow rises and large holes punctuating the chewy interior of a dark, crispy loaf. It has to be hand-shaped, too. I don’t generally think of short rises and a fine crumb or texture. I chose to call this bread semi-rustic because it seems to have properties of both categories.Both the feel and flavor of the ...

Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake

This is almost a repost of something I did over at Slashfood this week, but the cake is very good and I wanted to share it here, too. This Cinnamon Struesel Coffee Cake is a Martha Stewart Living recipe that I adapted by changing the spicing slightly. It was originally meant to be a cardamom streusel cake, but I was not going to toast and ... Read More »

Perfect Fudgy Brownies

Too cakey, too dry, too dense, too wet, too greasy, too many nuts, not enough nuts. What is the perfect brownie? I sincerely thing that everyone has a different mindset when it comes to brownies. Some people like them to be like a moist, dense, chocolate cake, while others prefer them to be a sort of lightened fudge. There are some who won’t eat them ... Read More »

Apricot Ginger Oat Biscuits

I decided to name these biscuits, rather than cookies, because they are based on Anzac biscuits, the crunchy, oaty, eggless Aussie favorite. The biscuits are a favorite of mine, too, as I love anything that is full of oats. Niki has a good, standard recipe, full of oats and dessicated (shredded) coconut. The biscuits I made lack the coconut that is typical of Anzac biscuits ... Read More »
