Nut-Free Energy Bars

I love to pack things like these to my kid’s lunch box. They are full of healthy ingredients and right calories. It is a bit of pain to find something similar in stores. There are plenty of energy bars, but… Continue reading →

Crunchy Seed Cookies

Awesome cookies, exactly as the author’s saying – “noisily crunchy, light, addictive”. The recipe is by Alice Medrich. I just used a bit more seeds since the stated amount wasn’t quite enough. It does seem like I’m not keeping up… Continue reading →

Dulce de Leche Rice Pudding

The pudding of pure dulce de leche flavor. There are people who either love or can’t stand the rice puddings. But there’s a chance for the latter to be converted if they try this particular one (I happened to witness… Continue reading →

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 →

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 →

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 →

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 →

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 →

Chocolate Cranberry and Cream Cheese Mousse Trifle

This is not a traditional English trifle. There is no dense pound cake, crème anglaise, and whipped cream inside. My trifle is assembled from light chocolate génoise soaked in Grand Marnier syrup, freshly made cranberry sauce, chocolate pastry cream, and… Continue reading →

Eggnog Panna Cotta with Penny-Size Espresso Shortbread Kisses

I admit I had been skeptical about store-bought eggnog until I tried organic whole fat all-natural one. It was pretty good. And so I thought of a super-quick and easy dessert utilizing some leftovers. I topped the panna cotta with… Continue reading →

One Cornmeal Dough – Two Different Biscotti: Poppy Seed Wild Blueberry Candied Lemon and Sesame Biscotti

These are very different in taste, although they are made from the same cornmeal dough. I am cutting some corners here: Christmas is so close. One batch yields about a dozen and a half of each kind. But since biscotti… Continue reading →
