Nova Scotia Blueberry Cake

A few days ago, I asked for help identifying a recipe with a layer of cake, blueberries and cream. It was a dessert someone brought to a teacher’s conference last year and it was so good, people remembered it many months later. Baking Blonde pointed towards this recipe on allrecipes.com. On paper, it sounded like […]

After making today’s veggie burgers, I decided to make good use of the rest of the canned beets. I’d always wanted to try a beet cake, so I did a search and found a highly rated sheet cake on Recipezaar. Below is my interpretation of the recipe. The only change I made was to add […]

I won’t be able to give a final German Chocolate Cake report until tonight, so for now, here’s a recipe I made with things in the pantry. I chose it because 1) it’s unusual and 2) I couldn’t find anything else that seemed very interesting. Besides, I needed to use this can of …

Rice Flour Cookies

You know what seems like it was just yesterday? Yesterday. Ha Ha. That’s a joke. But what really seems like it was just yesterday was Nicole’s posting this recipe on Baking Bites. I remember seeing it and getting really excited about trying a salty, crunchy, crispy cookie made with rice flour. But it took me […]

I’ll try anything once. Scratch that. So not true. But pepper in pound cake? Sure! It seemed like a fun combination. Plus, I’d read in a book that this cake was first prize winner at the West Texas State Fair in Abilene. According to Taste of Home, this recipe was created by a reader who was […]

Less Beetles, Mo’ Beets

by on April 18, 2008 · 5 comments

I’m not crazy about crushed beetles or colors made in a lab, but I can’t help it. I love red velvet cake. Last week my friend Shirley sent me a newspaper clipping from The Morning Call. The clipping included. A) An article (since deleted!) about Maggie Moos’ red velvet cake (featured on Unwrapped) and B) […]

Mini Coca Cola Cake

Sorry today’s recipe is a little late, but I had a hard time choosing what to make. I’ve been feeling guilty about spending money on ingredients and wanted to limit myself to what was on hand. In this case, it involved regular Coke and a couple handfuls or marshmallows. This is a familiar …

Cat Eye Droop

Something’s wrong with my cat’s eye, so I’m taking him to the vet to get it checked out. I’ll let you know the diagnosis when we get back, but for now, here’s a photo. Maybe this will help someone diagnose their own cat in the future. I suspect it’s a scratch, conjunctivitis or irreparable nerve […]
