Daring Bakers: Macarons

Daring Bakers: Macarons

The 2009 October Daring Bakers’ challenge was brought to us by Ami S. She chose macarons from Claudia Fleming’s The Last Course: The Desserts of Gramercy Tavern as the challenge recipe.At first, I wasn’t going to participate in this month’s challenge because macarons are made […]

Double Chocolate Toffee Ice Cream

Double Chocolate Toffee Ice Cream

I had five leftover egg yolks so I decided to make ice cream with them because I couldn’t think of any other egg-yolk recipes I like. The recipe calls for four egg yolks, but I put in all five. I’m tired of ice cream, but […]

Apple Breakfast Puffs

Apple Breakfast Puffs

Pioneer Woman calls these delightful muffins “French Breakfast Puffs” because she got the recipe from her French teacher in school. So, since I added apples to these addicting balls of bread and didn’t get these from a French teacher (well, not directly), I renamed them […]

“On a Diet” Take 1,000,000: Chicken and Baked Brown Rice

I had some cubed steak sitting in the freezer for a little over a week reserved just for this meal. I finally took it out the day before yesterday so that it could defrost in the refrigerator. This was my first time to make chicken […]

Carrot Cake Bars

Carrot Cake Bars

Since I was a child, I have questioned my biological relation to my mother because it seems like we are from different planets. I now jokingly tell her that she’s not really my mom and start listing reasons why: 1. She is an extrovert in […]

Apple Puff Pastry Tart

Apple Puff Pastry Tart

Yes, I made more dessert two days after the pecanless pie. To my defense, though, the dessert was not for me. Saturday was Chuseok/Chusok (Thanksgiving Day) in (most?) Asian countries. My friend from Korea told me that she and another Korean friend would be celebrating […]

Pecanless Pie Tarts

Pecanless Pie Tarts

Many food bloggers are not fans of repeating recipes. I, however, am a creature of habit and repeat good recipes often (hence the reason I don’t post often). Why change a good thing? If I find a good go-to recipe for whatever I crave, I […]
