On the way home from Maine last summer, we stopped at the Stonewall Kitchen store. We had a delicious lunch and walked through their beautiful store. I was tempted by a box of their doughnut mix which came with a doughnut pan. Their doughnut mix, like all of their other products, was delicious. After using [...]
I’m a big fan of crumb cake for breakfast. My favorite part is the crumb topping, but the cake part isn’t bad either. I saw this recipe and was grabbed by the title. Anything with a chocolate cinnamon swirl is right up my alley.
This coffee cake reminded me of something that you’d buy at Starbucks. [...]
This is a really interesting coconut bread that looks like it might be similar to a banana bread, but it isn’t. It has a much coarser crumb, and it’s not as sweet as a typical banana bread. I like this bread best toasted or warm with butter. It would be nice with a little confectioner’s [...]
I don’t know if I’ve ever been to an Olive Garden, but based on this recipe, I can bet that their soft bread sticks are delicious. I’ve made this recipe a number of times now as the boys are always asking me to make bread, rolls or biscuits. The boys are carb hounds. They each [...]
Our boys love homemade muffins for breakfast and I have been searching long and hard for a good chocolate chip muffin recipe. I have tried many, and none of them have been good enough to post on the blog. This one however, makes the cut. These muffins are delicious and quite moist. I think the [...]
I’m always looking for new muffin recipes to try for the boys. This came from a great cookbook I have called Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan. It’s a big book with lots of great photographs. My favorite type of cookbook has a beautiful photograph of every recipe.
This recipe is not terribly [...]
I make a lot of pumpkin muffins for the boys in the fall. They inhale them for breakfast before school. I make them so much that I wanted to change it up a bit. I found this recipe for pumpkin scones and decided to give it a shot. Most of the boys loved them, as [...]
Our boys LOVE crepes. A little sliver of a crepe shop opened in our neighborhood recently and the boys ask to stop every time we pass it. According to the boys, they make the best Nutella crepes.
In the past, I have made crepes reluctantly. I never thought I did it very well. I used to [...]
My sister Lauren visited some dear friends in California who are amazing cooks. She was snapping iPhone photos of every meal they had, and one looked better than the next. One afternoon, she snapped a shot of homemade hamburger buns and I was inspired! I’m much better at breads made with yeast these days, so [...]
I have been receiving a LOT of squash from my CSA, so you’re going to see quite a few new squash recipes in the upcoming days.
I can honestly say that this is the best zucchini bread that I have ever had. It’s incredibly moist and flavorful. I almost made it with chocolate chips instead of [...]
