Coconut Streusel Coffeecake with Pineapple Vanilla Filling

I intended to post before holidays, but with the Easter marathon of the Russian kulich-baking, pascha-making, and egg-dying I simply couldn’t find time. I hope you all had wonderful holidays. This cake is for serious coconut lovers, since it has… Continue reading →

Buckwheat Wholewheat Cream Cheese Cake

Maybe, this cake doesn’t have “the looks”, but it’s got everything else. I would even dare to say it is perfect – so tender, moist, with sweet buttery taste (with not that much butter inside). If you wish, you can… Continue reading →

Chocolate and Honey Banana Mini-Cupcakes with Luscious Honey Cream Cheese Frosting

These little cupcakes are very good on their own – soft, light and moist, with tiny specs of grated chocolate, but simply outstanding when frosted with this super-creamy honey cream cheese frosting. What makes the frosting so special is the… Continue reading →

SpongeBob Cake – Camping Episode – Sea Bear Attack

My dear son is turning 9 today. He is still faithful to old SpongeBob. This year the cake is a scene from his favourite episode (and not just his, I have to admit I love this one too). Tim actually… Continue reading →

Guinness and Malt Irish Whole-Wheat Bread

I baked it mostly out of curiosity. It is quite unusual, liquid batter which is prepared the way the classic Irish bread is made – from the cold butter cut into the flour and cold buttermilk mixed in. Besides the… Continue reading →

Mushroom Onion Scones

These scones, as all perfect cream scones should be, are light and tender inside, crispy outside, and full of flavor throughout. I like making them in advance and freezing unbaked. I bake the scones close to serving time without defrosting,… Continue reading →

Fitascetta Onion Covered Bread Ring

This is another uncomplicated, but delicious bread. And how can this not be good with almost two pounds of onions slowly sautéed in butter as a topping?! I usually put the dough after its first rise in the fridge overnight…. Continue reading →

Ultimate Mexican Brownies

Generously spiced with cinnamon and cayenne, filled with ancho and fig puree, and glazed with cinnamon ganache, aren’t they truly the ultimate Mexican? I’m craving the sun, heat, sandy beaches, and another Mexican vacation. Sadly, this vacation, although very much… Continue reading →

Pokemon Ball Cake

I have to admit I’ve known very little about Pokemon until recently. My own kiddo has no interest in this theme, so I had to rely on the internet sources to educate myself. Now I know at least a couple… Continue reading →

Marzipan-filled Honey Cookies

These are fabulous cookies. Every time my cake decorating projects require marzipan, I make a double batch, so I could use it also as a filling for the cookies. It’s not quite necessary to decorate or shape them into hearts… Continue reading →

Goat Cheese Mozzarella and Fresh Herb Foccacia

It’s all about good cheese accentuated with delicate flavor of fresh herbs. I wouldn’t add anything else to the topping. Obviously, it makes a great lunch paired with a big green salad.

Chocolate Wasabi Shortbread Cookies

Spicy, salty, chocolaty sweet, delicately sandy, but also crunchy… In other words – delicious cookies. I’ve already blogged about my love to this flavor combo. Spicy wasabi ganache I dipped the shortbread in is exactly the same one I used… Continue reading →

Pear Cranberry and Gorgonzola Turnovers

This is both a dessert and cheese course in one. Although my son declared they were the best when eaten with wild mushroom soup as a bread substitute. He’s got quite a taste for an 8-year old.

Artichoke Sun-Dried Tomato and Lots of Cheese Muffins

This recipe was born out of the need to utilize some leftover filling I used to stuff chicken breasts for our dinner. I also conveniently got rid of some Italian salami that was left on an antipasto platter after the… Continue reading →

Guinness Gingerbread Cake with Lemon Filling and Meringue Frosting

First, I thought the cake was too seasonal and the time for its posting had already passed, but then I realized the St. Patrick’s Day was still ahead and decided to share the recipe anyway. Besides, there are two winter… Continue reading →

Dog Biscuits for Dogs: No Wheat, No Corn, No Soy

Who’s been a good doggie? My girl certainly has. And she certainly deserves these wholesome treats made exclusively for her. Unlike other dog biscuits I posted earlier, these ones are for dogs’ consumption. They are made of brown rice flour,… Continue reading →
