Christmas Baking Part 1: Prune Cherry Cocoa Nib Panforte & Apricot Pistachio Cardamom Panforte

There shouldn’t be any excuses for not baking this time of the year. Perhaps, it would be better to start a bit earlier and not a week before Christmas. But, as an old proverb goes – it’s still better later… Continue reading →

Zucchini Parmesan Muffins with Fresh Mozzarella and Ham Fillings

I started getting complaints from my kiddo because of the recent cease of baking. Well, there’s still no time for baked sweets, but I thought these muffins, although savory, could rehabilitate me. I served them warm with a green salad… Continue reading →

Coconut and Muscovado Sugar Panna Cotta with Tropical Fruit Compote

Guinness Applesauce Cake with Lemon Icing

It would be, probably, nice to post it last Wednesday – St. Patrick’s Day, but I’ve been running behind my schedule lately. This recipe is slightly adapted from very old Guinness brewers’ recipe which produces a flavorful, moist eggless cake.

Chocolate Prune and Cereal Meringues

I was improvising to satisfy my son’s sweet tooth. Nut meringue are surely nice, but when the kid is allergic to all possible nuts existing, barely sweetened cereals make acceptable substitute. Bittersweet chocolate and some chopped prunes cut the sweetness… Continue reading →
