Here’s one I made earlier: Cypriot Semolina Cake

Where on earth does the time go? Over a week without posting here- oops! I didn’t intend for that to happen, though I knew last week would be busy, what with starting a new job and schoolwork piling up (and no, I don’t mean just baking for my classmates). Apart from my planned Valentine’s dinner (Dana’s lasagne went down a treat- you really must try it), my meals recently have been a mix of old standbys and fridge-cleaning experiments. Read more…

On Being Popular: Pistachio Almond Cardamom Cookies

If you’re anything like me, you’ll immediately hear Kristen Chenoweth’s voice in your head whenever you read the word “popular”. No? I guess it’s really just me then. Read more…

Re-emerging: Almond Biscotti

One for you, one for me: Mini Almond, Lemon and Semolina Cakes

Mini Almond, Lemon and Semolina Cakes

When you bake, who are you really baking for? You, your partner, kids, friends or co-workers? It has to go beyond your own enjoyment- unless you’re the type who can polish off a triple-layer cake in one sitting (and if you are, my respect and condolences). Read more…

And I’m Telling You: No-Butter Apricot and Almond Cake

Apricot and Almond Cake

Some recipes are just meant to find us.

When I borrowed my sister’s copy of Red Velvet & Chocolate Heartache, the “healthy cake” cookbook I reviewed the other day, she informed me that she’d “decided” I should make this recipe: Sunken Apricot and Almond Cake. Seeing that it called for tinned apricot halves, I immediately rejected the idea (if there’s anything I dislike more than cooked fruit, it’s canned fruit). Instead, I turned my attention to finding something else to make. Read more…
