Double Chocolate Bread

After a string of failed baking experiments yesterday, I was happy to receive this tried and true, grade A+ recipe from a reader named Steven. Steven knew I had a lot of recipes for quick breads, but because he’d made this bread three times in the past few days and because it was so popular […]

White Lilyl Flour Biscuits

Well, it’s March.  I obviously missed the […]

Carolyn from Canada has been making it for years, and wanted to share it because it’s a little bit different. What’s unique about this banana bread is that it’s baked at a very low […]

Banana bread squares made in a mini bar pan

I wish I was in that category, but every time I walk through the kitchen I’m compelled to pull out the ingredients and make something. Dinner? No. Sweets and treats? Yes! So I’m trying to find slightly […]

chocolate quick bread

I made this chocolate bread today after discovering a long forgotten jar of apple butter in the pantry. I guess the apple butter knew it was fall and decided to make its presence known. Or maybe it wanted to come out and play with all the season’s apples? I don’t know, but I was happy […]

Banana Bread

After reading Rebecca’s blog post on Costa Rican cuisine, catching an episode of House Hunters International where a couple looked at this condominium and reading Costa Rica trip reviews from my stepbrother, I am now slightly fixated on the country. If you’ve been, post a comment! I’m in the research phase and hope to one […]

Ginger Mini Muffins

Breakfasts have been a little boring around here, so this week I tried to spice things up with some some mini ginger muffins. Using a recipe I typically use for regular gingerbread, I baked it my Baker’s Secret Nonstick 24-Cup Mini Muffin Pan. The results were moist muffins with beautifully rounded tops. As for flavor, […]
