Coconut “Truffles”

This is, probably, the easiest sweet treat ever. There’s no chocolate in these things, but “truffles” sound so much more interesting than “balls”, so I decided to name them that. My apologies, if I confused and disappointed anyone. They are… Continue reading →

Raw Carrot Mini Cakes

If you are like me – reluctant to toss organic carrot pulp into the compost after juicing the carrots, this recipe might be worthy of your attention. The flavor and texture of these cakes come pretty close to a conventional… Continue reading →

Chocolate Chia Pudding with Orange Flavoured Prunes

It always helps me to tame the chocolate cravings without consuming any processed sugar. Surprisingly, even a small serving is quite satisfying. The pudding takes no time to make, it just needs a couple of hours in the refrigerator to… Continue reading →

Cinnamon Brownie and Dulce de Leche Ice Cream Sandwiches

This ice cream is the best dulce de leche ice cream I’ve tried. It’s better than the Häagen-Dazs’, no kidding. And it’s extremely easy to make. The recipe is adapted from the Gourmet who is, in its turn, adapted it… Continue reading →

Lemon Cupcakes with Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosting

The cupcakes are actually double-raspberry – there is a raspberry jam filling hidden under the frosting. I used the same jam, instead of commonly used icing sugar, to sweeten the cream cheese frosting. I strongly dislike the mouthfeel of icing… Continue reading →

Apricot Coconut Mini Crumble Cookies

These are very tasty cookies – buttery, sweet, crumbly, with a distinct coconut flavour and a hint of lemon in the filling. They are sort of a cross between jam tarts, sugar cookies, and crumbles. I spotted the idea in… Continue reading →

Lemon and Basil Strawberry Trifle

This is truly a spring-celebrating dessert. Light lemon génoise cake is soaked in tangy, Limoncello-spiked syrup, layered with fragrant basil strawberry salad and white chocolate crème Chantilly. White chocolate doesn’t just add interest to the whole flavour palette, it also… Continue reading →

Eggnog Cream Puffs

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! This is a little seasonal twist on the traditional pastries. The filling is eggnog-flavoured pastry cream, lightened with a bit of whipped cream. If you wish, you can dip the tops into caramel or chocolate… Continue reading →

Puff Pastry Strawberry Coconut Cookies

These are super easy and quickly-done (provided you’ve made the puff pastry in advance or bought it) cookies that go well with ice-cream and fruit salad.

Carrot Orange Muffins

I bet everyone has their tried-and-true carrot cake/muffins recipe, but I will still share mine since I believe this recipe is pretty awesome. I put a little bit of banana puree in, not too much to turn them into banana… Continue reading →

Chocolate and Mocha Chantilly Mini Trifles

These chocolate cubes at the bottom are actually Alice Medrich’s “Chocolate deception” cake that I failed to unmold and extracted in two pieces. I should have known better that this kind of cake wouldn’t be easy to separate from the… Continue reading →

Oatmeal Coconut Raisin Cookies

After all fancy holiday cooking and baking, and overindulging (pigging-out is actually the word), I crave simple things. These are as good as it gets. Freshly baked, they have a great texture – crispy outside and chewy interior. The following… Continue reading →

Gingerbread Pizzelle with Eggnog Buttercream Filling

I hope everyone had truly wonderful Christmas. I wish you a prosperous and joyful 2012, and the most amazing New Year celebration! There are dozens of possible filling choices for pizzelle. The buttercream has a major advantage – it doesn’t… Continue reading →

Chocolate Cocoa Nib Cherry Biscotti and Chocolate Coconut Macadamia Nut Biscotti

Here I am speeding up the baking process. These two different in taste biscotti are made from one chocolate dough.

Mexican Wedding Cookies

This is one of my staple cookie recipes for holiday baking. I’m sure I’m not the only one who bakes similar cookies around Christmas. Nevertheless, I thought I’d share the foolproof recipe that’s been tweaked and perfected over the years…. Continue reading →

Pear Honey and Walnut Upside-Down Cake

This perfect autumn cake is a result of my makeover of an old family recipe, the one from a huge collection of Russian recipes I’m planning to publish someday one way or another. Feather-soft cardamom-spiced honey cake, sweet caramelized succulent… Continue reading →

Pumpkin Ginger Cake with Pumpkin Cheesecake Topping

Here’s a cross between a cake and cheesecake. The base is a moist soft pumpkin cake with added candied ginger for a little heat. The topping is a thin layer of creamy pumpkin cheesecake. The cake is baked just until… Continue reading →

Pumpkin Molasses Muffins

I especially recommend these to anemic individuals like me. Blackstrap molasses add not just great flavor, but also iron to the muffins. From the other hand, if you are not a big fan of blackstrap molasses, or if you find… Continue reading →
