What’s Baking: Crustless Caprese Quiche

Quiche is a very hit or miss recipe for me. Either I like it and I want to devour the entire plate of it, or I don’t like it at all. I blame this entirely on the eggs, which is unfortunately a necessary ingredient in making quiche. I don’t like […]

What’s Baking: Brown Butter and Bourbon Maple-Glazed Doughnuts

The theme for What’s Baking this month is doughnuts. Back when baking doughnuts was all of the baking rage, I went out and bought myself a doughnut pan…and then it mainly collected dust because I rarely made them. Oops? I started looking at doughnut recipes right away, wanting my come-back […]

Apple Cinnamon Rolls

My coworkers are huge fans of cinnamon rolls. After bringing them in once, they’ve asked me to make as many varieties and versions as I can come up with and to please bring them in on Monday mornings. Not one to disappoint, I looked through some saved recipes I had […]

What’s Baking: Snickerdoodle Biscotti

The What’s Baking theme for this month was biscotti. I first made biscotti a few years ago as part of a Secret Recipe Club reveal and found I really loved those hard little cookies perfect for dipping into coffee, hot chocolate or tea. Honestly, I could probably make a different […]

SRC: Strawberry Cream Cheese Danish

It’s Secret Recipe Club time again!  This month I was assigned to The PinterTest Kitchen, which is a blog written by Sharon and her two daughters, Allison and Jessica. They go through the popular recipes we all see pinned over and over again on Pinterest and make them, letting us […]

Watermelon Strawberry Smoothie

As I mentioned last week, I was overloaded with rather ripe fruit and no real plan in sight to make it go away. My mom gave me nearly three cups of watermelon. I ate as much of it as I could, but even though it was one of the few […]

Orange Carrot Smoothie

I won’t lie, I was hesitant on making this smoothie. Carrot juice?! I like carrots as much as the next person, or probably even more since I could eat an entire bag of the baby versions in one sitting if I put my mind to it, but something about carrot […]

SRC: Coconut Pineapple Mini Muffins

For this month’s Secret Recipe Club I was assigned to Secrets from the Cookie Princess. Colleen is the face behind the words of her blog and…girlfriend likes to bake. Seriously. If you check out her about me section, one of the first thing she tells you is that she baked […]

Scotch Eggs

When we were at Universal Studios we decided to eat lunch at the Leaky Cauldron. I chose the Ploughman’s lunch, only recently having heard of one on an episode of the Barefoot Contessa, and Tom had fish and chips. I was trying to recall the episode and explain to Tom […]

Strawberry Basil Sorbet Bellini

So, I’m thirty. I have now entered another decade of life. It’s kind of surreal. Since the first of April I’ve watched the days near closer and I’ve pretty much felt nothing. It’s just another number. If I don’t wake up this morning and instantly feel like an adult, I’ve […]
