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 →

Summer Grilling: Grilled Eggplant (my favorite way) with Goat Cheese, Fresh Basil, and Fire-toasted Bread

Finally, it seems like it’s summer here. Vancouver can’t ever brag about its early summer, but this year the cold and rainy spring seemed particularly lengthy. As soon as the weather permitted, and the tedious task of grill-cleaning was accomplished,… 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 →

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 →

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 →

Appetizers for New Year Party: Caramelized Walnut and Stilton “Brains” and Parmesan-stuffed Bacon-wrapped Dates

We’ve given up the russian tradition to celebrate New Year with a full-course dinner starting at midnight. Now our fancy dinner begins at a more appropriate hour, somewhere around 7PM, and later I serve little bites and nibbles. I thought… Continue reading →
