More Cupcakes!!

Sunday, July 18th, 2010

I was sad when it was announced that Iron Cupcake: Earth was no more. It was a significant factor in my getting seriously interested in pastry, leading me to experiment with recipes and learn how to make a real buttercream. It was on hiatus for a while as its fate was being determined, and I […]

An Idea to Chew On

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

I’d had a really yummy idea swimming around in my brain for a while, and like all swimmy ideas it changed and evolved over time, even getting so far as to be hypothetically written out in my notebook, along with recipes for accompanying elements. Also like many swimmy ideas, it sat fairly dormant until I […]

Perfection Ensued

Monday, July 20th, 2009

If you know me and/or my blog, you know I am always happy to take special requests from friends and family. So when my best friend’s mom requested chocolate chai meringues for her birthday, I was more than happy to oblige and the gears in my head started turning immediately.


Friday, July 17th, 2009

I was very interested in the quite literally mouth-watering flavor combination I’ve used in this recipe for a while, and for some reason thought it would be best in a cupcake. Though it would still make a fun cupcake, I think the combination of juicy watermelon and strong black tea must reach its fullest potential […]

Healthyberry Blues

Thursday, July 16th, 2009

Frozen yogurt is something I wanted to play around with some more, especially after the horrible bout of tummy aches I suffered recently, probably due to my excessive ice-cream-eating and cheese-nibbling. That’s a bad lactose-intolerant!

It’s Easy Eating Green!

Saturday, July 4th, 2009

It’s been a while since I’ve done anything with tea. And that’s a shame, considering how it fuels me throughout each day (even when I was in New York for a couple days, far away from my kettle, I still managed to at least have some good quality, albeit bottled, cold tea every day). I’ve […]

Coconut & Lime

Saturday, June 6th, 2009

I really love making madeleines. They’re absolutely adorable all tiny and scallopy from my mini madeleine pan. I was extra excited when I got my coconut oil from Tropical Traditions because it would be a perfect addition to madeleines, I figured.

Respect the Kumquat

Thursday, May 7th, 2009

I’ve mentioned before that I really, really like kumquats, but prefer them fresh to candied. I hadn’t tried baking with them until today, though.
