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 »

Chocolate Pumpkin Pie

Chocolate Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie is one of those foods that is pretty much perfect in its basic state. For variations, a chef might switch from a graham cracker crust to a regular pastry crust, or tweak the spices by adding more ginger, a pinch of cardamom or a touch less cinnamon. Even when all of these alterations are put into place, a pumpkin pie is pretty much ... Read More »

Cranberry Apple Sauce

homemade cranberry apple sauce

 I recently found myself with an apple overload in my kitchen. This rarely happens to me since I tend to go through apples very quickly (eating them plain, in pies, in crumbles, etc.), so I decided to take advantage of the situation with a recipe that calls for quite a few apples: applesauce. Applesauce is one of those foods that is so easy to make, ... Read More »

Pecan Cake

Pecan pie is way, way down on my list of desserts that I like. In fact, I might even go so far as to say that I dislike them. They’re often too syrupy and too sweet, and rather than tasting sinfully indulgent like butter tarts, they leave me wanting something to wash them down with. When I ask people who love pecan pie what draws ... Read More »

Apple and Granola Scones

Apple and Granola Scones

Scones are a great breakfast or tea time snack food. They’re easy to make, delicious and can be subject to what seems like an almost infinite number of variations. Plain scones – served with jam and butter or clotted cream – are always a popular option, but I have a soft spot for a scone with something added into it. Currents, chocolate chips, fresh fruit or ... Read More »

Lemon Meringue Bars

Lemon Meringue Bars

Quick, name some lemon desserts. Were lemon bars and lemon meringue pie on your list? While lemon does well in many, many different desserts (not to mention in lots of savory dishes), lemon bars and lemon meringue pie must be two of the most common and the most popular. Everyone has their favorite, though the zesty lemon flavor comes out easily, loudly in both. Bars tend to ... Read More »

Buckwheat Pumpkin Butter Pancakes with Dried Cranberries

Pumpkin Butter Pancakes with maple syrup action!

I wanted to give you all a healthy recipe to start off Halloween, since I think we can all agree that it is a holiday that is (most likely) going to spiral down into an excess of sugar, chocolate and other treats by the time the night is over. The more I thought about it, though, the more I realized that we need the healthy ... Read More »
