When Life Gives You Lemons

Not in that sense. I can’t say I have many sour days here. :-) Walking through the market in Santander can be very dangerous. Well, no, make that walking through ANY market can be dangerous…for me, everything looks so pretty and fresh and colorful and sometimes things just jump out at me even though I … Continue reading

Playing Catch-up

I have no idea what happens to time. It’s like it gets sucked into some vortex, never to be seen again. Such is its nature I suppose! I have been baking and cooking, but now have fallen so far behind, I figured I could use one post to recap and be all caught up. So … Continue reading

The Dough Also Rises

Oy, bad reference. For weeks I’ve been weighing my love for all things warm and gooey and cinnamony with my ongoing battle with yeast breads, and finally decided to give in and give this lovely looking Cinnamon Pull-Apart bread that has been all over the foodgawking universe a try. And after round 1, I think … Continue reading

TWD: Citrus Currant Sunshine Muffins

Woops! Last week came and went and I forgot to post this. Oh well, better late than never!

No currants (I swapped out orange flavored dried cranberries), and no lemon oil. BUT, … Continue reading

TWD: Toasted Almond Scones

I’ll be short, sweet, and to the point on this one. These were 1) super easy, and that’s coming from someone who has a history of fouling up any recipe that has something about not “overworking” or “overmixing” the dough, 2) smelled really good – how could toasted almonds and butter NOT smell good!, and … Continue reading

I had a craving…

Ever have one of those really strange cravings, and you’re not really sure where it came from, but you can’t get it out of your head? That’s what happened to me the other night. I couldn’t stop thinking about cranberry pecan bread…not quick bread/sweet bread, but rather that baguette style that the wine bars always seem to … Continue reading

TWD: Great Grains Muffins

As usual, I busted out the mini muffin pan for these. I just find that they are easier to give away when they are minis…the full size muffin is way more of an investment. And plus, I get to spread the wealth a little more! (And yes, I bake to give away…I could never possibly … Continue reading
