Sweet, Bitter, Sour…Fluffy?

Time for my latest cupcake! Wheeee! I decided that for this month’s Cupcake Hero I’d try to avoid buying ingredients, and I almost completely succeeded.

For Your Health!

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

This is going to be a rather unusual post, one of those rare, non-sugary things that I come up with every once in a great while. Not only that, but it’s flat-out healthy, and came together out of a particularly successful spring trip to the Greenmarket.

The Problem with Leftovers

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

Well, not so much leftovers as bits of ingredients. A few egg whites here, a handful of walnuts there… A bit of honey and a dash of cardamom later and I had some delicious, slightly exotic cookies. So what’s the problem?

I’ll get a post up about the slightly-problematic-but-still-really-delicious aforementioned concoction soon, but in the meantime, here’s something that’ll make the wait more bearable.

Get Them Away From Me!

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

Sometimes a recipe just comes together with almost no effort, and something that you made to use up an odd ingredient ends up being fabulously tasty. So tasty, in fact, that you have to share the results with as many people as possible, even though you don’t really want to.

A Glimpse Inside My Idea Notebook

Monday, May 18th, 2009

When I’m sitting in the kitchen, bored while waiting for water to boil or cupcakes to bake, I like to come up with concepts for dessert projects. I have an adorable little notebook for my ideas and have lots of little checklists of ideas. Yes, checklists. I put little boxes next to everything I write […]

Scrubby Dub Dub

Today I’m presenting my first non-food recipe. Actually, that’s a lie. It’s made of food. But it wouldn’t taste very good. Not in these proportions, anyway. It does however happen to be a quick and awesome thing you can make for Mother’s Day.
