Baklava Loaf

baklava loaf

Are you a baklava fan? Unless you really dislike honey or nuts, there isn’t much in the flavor profile of the flaky, Middle-eastern pastry to object to. That being said, it is surprisingly difficult to find a good baklava. Far too many are too soggy, too mushy, too nutty¬†or too sweet. As an alternative, I recently tried out this recipe for a Baklava loaf, which ... Read More »

Earlier this year, I tried a recipe for a fat free pumpkin pound cake from Fast Food Fix, a book that specializes in making low-fat or fat free versions of restaurant favorites.

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 »

Orange Cranberry Bread

Orange Cranberry Bread is one of my go-to quick breads that I make several times every year. I make it for myself, for my family, for gifts and for no good reason at all, just to share with friends. It is quick, easy and really outstanding as far as flavor goes. I first started making it when I was little – very little – using ... Read More »
