Cranberry Citrus Cornmeal Cookies

I would have been tempted to simply call these “Alliterative Cookies”, were it not for the fact that alliterative does not start with the letter “c”. I like the way the current name just rolls of the tongue, though I will admit that I spent a bit of time switching the order of the words around. This is an adaptation of a recipe found in ...

Hawaiian Sweet Bread

Hawaiian sweet bread was my favorite sandwich bread growing up, though I did not have it often. Even better was the fact that not only could I use it to make my peanut butter and jelly before school, but when there was a loaf of it in the house I could have really delicious toast for breakfast, too. Hawaiian sweet bread seems to be the ... Read More »

Artichoke and Yukon Gold Potato Gratin

Artichoke and Yukon Gold Potato Gratin

I am not normally a big fan of wet, cheesy dishes, particularly if they are likely to contain large amounts of improperly cooked potatoes. Unfortunately, this includes almost all varieties of potatoes au gratin, which can be tasty but are often poorly done. Despite my general reluctance to make this type of a dish, this Leite’s Culinaria won me over with three simple things. First, ... Read More »

Chunky Brownie Frozen Yogurt

I am a big fan of frozen desserts, but as good as ice cream is, it can actually be a bit rich for me at times.

It’s good to drink lots of fluids on a hot day, of course, but I don’t want to get thirstier when ... Read More »

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 »
