About Me

It was that time of the month again when I had to pull up my socks and prepare for the Daring Baker's Challenge. This month I was so sure to participate....I even started preparing it well in time. I was excited at the thought of making Sourdough bread. Had never tried...

Soup Sticks with Sopa de Elote (Mexican Corn Soup)

Soup Sticks or Bread Sticks have been on my mind for a long time now. Every time we are out for dinner and the bread basket is served with fresh bread sticks, I promise myself to try baking them myself over the weekend,...

My mid-week craving for a dessert drove me to some experimentation. I wanted to bake, but something that would satisfy my sweet tooth, would be quick to make and something that I'd never baked before.

It had to be a cake...non-icing.....non-chocolaty....but Sinful all t...

Cakes come as much from the heart as they come from the hearth. There is an inbuilt celebratory aroma to a cake. The golden browns is then not only a visual treat, it is also the wiff that rises from its core!!
