Corn muffins

October 22nd, 2014 | Quick, Quickbread, Sides, Vegetarian | Christi | No Comments

There are a few things homier than the smell of fresh baked muffins. These are the corn version, not quite a cornbread, due to the higher ratio of flour to cornmeal. They are less dense and more cakey, a true member of the muffin family. Enjoy with a bowl of hot chili or with plenty […]

If you want to bypass the added preservatives and crazy salt in commercial crackers, this is your recipe. With a bit of patience, a strong arm, and a good rolling pin, crunchy homemade crackers are on the horizon! Eat with […]

Cinnamon Crumb Coffeecake

Sometimes I like to talk. Alot. I have to hold myself back from yapping the other person to death. Of course, there are other times where I love to embrace the silence. A nice book, an evening walk, or maybe even a weekend brunch filled with brown sugar and cinnamon- in the form of these […]

Corny Cornbread

June 12th, 2011 | Bread, Quickbread, Sides, Vegetarian | Christi | 1 Comment

Cornbread is means something different to everyone. Southern and Northern parts of the U.S. have their own versions, as well as other variations including savory, hot, and almost muffin-like. To me, the best cornbread should be sweet but not cloyingly so, have a sticky top layer, and be moist, but not gummy. This recipe is […]

Sour Cream Coffeecake

I’m a very literal person. When I first heard “coffeecake”, I thought a cup of joe was poured into the cake batter. How silly of me. But since this cake is so delicious, I forgot the surprise quickly. But, a good coffeecake recipe is hard to find. A perfect cake must have a delicious streusel, […]

Lemon Yogurt Cake

I’ve been meaning to make this cake since September of last year. Oops. Big mistake. This is possibly one of my favorite cakes ever. I baked it in different pans than the recipe outlines, and lowered the baking time to 20-30 minutes. Besides the fact that it is health conscious, with lots of yogurt to […]

I’m guessing that I’m not the only one with left-over pumpkin from Thanksgiving. At least I hope so. This pumpkin bread is Ah-mazing. As in, please go buy a can of pumpkin right now. Yes, even in 40 degree weather. Go, go! I think my bear said it best, “No, I want that other cake. […]

Tropical Carrot Cake Squares

Orange, so orange. When I was still in my mum’s tummy, some decades ago, she had a enormous craving for oranges. Boxes and boxes of them. Navels, clementines, mandarins, you name it. I’m sure the doctor told her it was healthy. Vitamins, minerals, etc, etc. The side effects of this seemingly harmless encouragement was not […]

Croissant Bread Pudding

When I was little my mom used to make this breakfast concoction called “Egg Toast”. Contrary to what you would think, these were not eggs on toast. They were mutant simulations of what mother understood French toast to be. Which is amusing now that I figured out French toast is on the sweeter side of […]

Light & Fluffy Cornbread

I’m a Cali girl. Born and raised here, it’s who I am. I’ve never really been to the East Coast, much less the South.
