I've been making a lot of raw food lately. Partly because it's easier on my digestive system, but mostly because my oven has decided to heat up to 500˚F any time it's switched to BAKE. Which poses a problem when you're a baker

This is a simple recipe that can be adapted probably anyway you like. The first time I made it I didn’t have any veggies on hand, so the only “add-in” was the sausage. Get creative and throw whatever veggies/add-ins you like!

I'm not in Kansas anymore. And by Kansas I mean Canada. Guess what...I'm in Thailand! Sorry for the lack of posts lately, but it takes a while to get here! If you didn't already know this, Thailand is one of my favourite countries to visit. The food, the culture, the people, the food. It's all so good. Did I mentions how good the food is? Holy cow!

There is such a dearth of international cuisine in Pondicherry…it almost feels like all these people are missing out on such amazing food from around the globe! All this deprivation forces me to go into my kitchen and make all the food that I miss,

When I made the batter according to the instructions, it ended up a curdled mess and I thought I was in trouble but the cupcake turned out light and delicious. The icing is so rich you can only eat one a day or your cellulite will get the upper hand

When the mood hits me and I crave to create a new dish , I dig into my memory of food orders that were selected by the family and which they really liked, and I recreate the dish for them with some twists here and there so that it becomes my "own" dish.

It was initially just supposed to be parmesan and pine nut muffins but I wanted to give it a bit of flair so I turned them into cornbread muffins, swapping out the pine nuts for jalapenos, and then using up some sharp cheddar cheese that I had sitting around in the fridge. Hence, we have these jalapeno cornbread muffins.

My strawberry mango fruit flan with creamy custard filling is a great way to celebrate the warmer weather ahead. No need to tackle piecrust dough with this super easy sponge cake recipe. The orange liqueur syrup, brushed on the cake after baking, guarantees a moist interior and flavourful base for the luscious crème pâtissière.

These were the perfect accompaniment to the tender brisket. They were crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. It’s my new favorite way to prepare potatoes. I’ve already made them again since, just changing up the herbs a bit.

I’d like to introduce you to my new friend. He’s rich, he’s complex, he has no problems making friends at parties. His officially name is Bacon Deviled Eggs but around here we know him as The Diet Killer. Once he makes an appearance you can kiss your well intentioned diet’s ass goodbye.

I’m a big believer in a hearty meal to start off the day (I usually make a tortilla with eggs, cheese, and chives most mornings) and I had heard things were a lot less formal in Italy. To better prepare myself, I decided to make chocolate-dipped almond biscotti that I quickly discovered was an even better way to start the day (especially when dunked into coffee).

I made knishes once from a boxed mix, but there was no magic in that Manischewitz powder. I finally decided to try making them from scratch last year as a Hanukkah experiment. It took more time and effort than I expected, but the results were batamt - which sounds a little like Yiddish for "the bomb." In any language, they were delicious.

In Sicilan dialect, mangia gioia (pronounced mahn-ja joy-ah) essentially means "Eat, my joy." You will definitely enjoy all the delicious recipes Alicia makes, just like this Dilly Potato Salad.

Living so close to Pike Place Market truly does spoil us. Brunch, being one of my favorite meals to cook and eat, has recently become a fun tradition to try new recipes and variations on the good old favorites.

Good cooking is largely about balance in flavor and texture. This dish is a perfect example. The brussels sprouts are your base. Kind of earthy, kind of bitter. When sautéeing, browning brings out their natural sugars. They’ll still be earthy and bitter, but also a little sweet- something to remember when you add the raisins.

When it comes to sandwiches, it's almost always better to have seven layers than one.

I haven't baked in a while. And this recipe combined two of my favorite flavors.

Making a nutella-like spread is easy to make at home. Try this recipe from Anneliese of Cucina Facil.

If you like caprese you have to try this, it's perfect for spring or summer and it obviously presents well. We basically ate it all ourselves after I made it. You don't have to use crostini either, it's delish on it's own.

I know I don’t need to tell you why. I mean, do people seriously still make French toast the old-school way, slice by slice in a skillet?
