Browned Butter and Bacon plus delicious chocolatey goodness….
I found under the “On his day” thingy on Facebook, a recipe I posted several years ago for bacon and chocolate chip cookies… so I decided to try it… however, instead of following the recipe I had found, I modified my own cookie recipe and this is what I got… which I have been told is delicious. Continue reading
We were at the Farmer’s Market on the weekend and found some lovely fresh rhubarb…. so of course pie must be made!
My mother is a pie expert. I’ve probably told you this before, but she made pie a LOT … seemed like every day.. after all, Dad needed his breakfast pie.. not to mention lunch and dinner pie… but then he got the high cholesterol and all that pie eating came to an end. Good thing as I think my mother was getting awfully tired ….but I digress. Continue reading
Several people in my family really REALLY like vanilla cake with whipped cream and strawberries.. not SHORTCAKE .. true shortcake is an entirely different thing.. more like a biscuit. I made this one for my niece Madeleine’s birthday this year. I will say this.. I used some brown sugar in it as I was short on white… (half white half brown…) and it did lend a bit of a caramely taste, but it’s prettier if you use all white. Continue reading
When I met my (former) husband, he mentioned his love of the tarts, so I made attempts to make them the way he liked them.
That said, I have not made butter tarts for years. I used to make them quite often. However, once the ex and I split, I just really didn’t bake as often and really had no reason to make them… Continue reading
Okay, so this is late. And I’m a nerd. Pi Day is supposed to be to celebrate the mathematical constant Pi or π. However, it IS a pretty good excuse to just have pie. And I WAS in Math Club, so it’s all good. Although at Math competitions we just got donuts. No pie. The heathens!
We celebrated Pi Day with some pretty delicious Coconut Cream Pie. Enjoy! Continue reading
As I have said… Katy likes pie and therefore I made 2 for her birthday because I like to bake things and like to offer a variety of pie. Annnnd… I have a tendency to make too much food. And people in my family really like peach pie. Continue reading
One of the things I’m doing with my baking is remaking recipes (sometimes, not all) to be vegetarian or vegan and many of the desserts I’ve modified to be low sugar.
I have a vegetarian niece, a vegan sister, a lactose intolerant daughter and a boyfriend with diabetes. So, in some recipes I’ve offered modifications. THIS is the delicious result of modifications… and I must get them out of my house as soon as possible or I will eat them ALL. Continue reading
So the beautiful and talented Katy Warren is not a big cake fan. She likes pie. LOVES pie. For her birthday, I wasn’t sure what kind of pie to make… so I made two. Also, I use the word “so” a lot.
I wasn’t sure what kind to make.. her favourite is Raspberry Pie, but felt it was the wrong time of year to make it (her birthday is in February) hence I made two pies. Here’s number one…. Continue reading
I was looking for a way to use up some buttermilk that I had in the fridge and also wanted to make some healthy, delicious low sugar treats. I took a muffin recipe and pretty much changed out most of the ingredients to come up with this. They were very tasty, the BF enjoyed them… and then of course I had to re-make them as I couldn’t quite recall what I had done in the first place. I’m pretty that way. (Long time saying I have… when someone does something kinda dumb, I will pet their hair and say “you’re pretty… you don’t have to be smart”… to either men or women.. it’s just a joke, don’t get all offended or anything… it’s just something silly I say…. I value smart over pretty any day… but once again, I digress..) Continue reading
