I don’t like regular banana bread – I will disguise it by making banana muffins or I will add chocolate chips to it or anything, really, rather than make plain banana bread. It has bad connections for me and I find it’s always…wet and heavy. Blech! I do like chocolate, though, and I always seem

Oh, sandwich bread – how I love thee! I have a couple bread/bun recipes that I use all the time, but I’m always interested, when I have time, in trying new ones. This is a pretty basic recipe, but there were a couple techniques for determining how the dough is doing that I thought I

I needed chocolate. Had to have chocolate. Didn’t want brownies. Didn’t want cookies. Figured I’d give a chocolate cake a try. This is The Pioneer Woman’s recipe. Let me preface my mess up with this: the recipe and instructions are very clear. I had a brain fart. I do not have a sheet cake pan.

Today is Canadian Thanksgiving. Turkey day (or ham or roast or perogies or cabbage rolls) – we’re pretty accommodating like that. I went to the store on Friday and impulsively bought a turkey…quite a big turkey, although I didn’t realize quite how big until this morning. It was a frozen turkey. I have no room

Ohhh, chocolate, how I love thee! I even like chocolate protein powder and nobody likes that. We had Pho soup for supper, and I figured with all the vegetables, I could squeeze in some kind of chocolate dessert type thing and be okay with it. So, the search was on. By the way, shortly there

I actually had a brain flash last night and was going to make Nutella Danish, just for fun. Not because I particularly like Nutella, but the jar of it in the cupboard should be used, right? And then, when I was taking out the puff pastry, I remembered I had some homemade marmalade in the

The first time I saw something about lemon curd, I was speaking with my daughter afterwards and mentioned was an offputting name it had – and she raved about it – had it somewhere, absolutely loved it. I like lemon flavour a whole lot, so I gave it a go, despite the name. The first

I was gifted a bag of frozen blueberries yesterday, and by last night, I had the fiercest craving for blueberry scones. I’ve only made scones once or twice, it just never occurs to me to make them and when I do, they are very much pastry and I’m somewhat heavy handed with the pastry. 🙁

** http://www.handcraftedbyradar.com for more recipes ** I was going to make banana cream pie. I didn’t. I balked at making a pie crust. Still not one of my strong suits. I could have cheated and made my pie crust with my food processor, but I really didn’t want to listen to the banshee scream it
