My Favorite Muffins to Make

Intro I have been baking since I was 12. One of the earliest treats I used to make included muffins. I don’t recall which flavors they were, as it was too long ago. However, I do have a good number of muffin types that I have baked in recent years. Below is the list. IContinue reading “My Favorite Muffins to Make”

The Top Cakes I Have Made in Recent Years

While I do understand why a lot of people, including myself, prefer commercially-made cakes for occasions, I often bake mine from scratch.

How I made a cottage pie dairy-free

Contrary to what many people believe, cottage pie and shepherd’s pie aren’t exactly the same thing. Shepherd’s pie is made with ground lamb, while cottage pie is made with ground beef.

Tips for Making Salmon

Salmon stands out in many ways, besides its deep pink color. It’s consists of Omega 3’s, lots of protein, and can be cooked in various ways. If you’ve ever had smoked salmon before, you might wonder how it’s made. Of course, smoke plays a role. But it’s also covered in lots of salt. This wasContinue reading “Tips for Making Salmon”

My Experience with Mixed Berry Pie

Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, oh my! And in a pie? It’s delightful and delicious, but it’s also a bit tedious. Why would I say that you may ask? Well, because it takes effort to obtain the right consistency—lots of it. Don’t get me wrong; the pie can still taste good. Mine tasted great. However, berries containContinue reading “My Experience with Mixed Berry Pie”

My Experience with Baking Flourless Cookies

It has been ages since I made flourless cookies. Maybe I will return to them someday. However, there will be the kinds I plan to pass on due to my own experiences as well as the ingredients. But there will also be the types in which I may consider baking again. First, I will startContinue reading “My Experience with Baking Flourless Cookies”

When I Made Cranberry Orange Muffins

I first discovered that I enjoyed these muffins when my mom baked them. Unlike those, however, I did not make mine from scratch. Why, you may ask? It was because I woke up very early in the morning, before 4 AM. So, I didn’t want to wake anyone up in my house. I had aContinue reading “When I Made Cranberry Orange Muffins”

Can You Believe… Dairy-Free Scones are Delicious?

Although the picture above does not feature scones I’ve made (they’re from a public-domain image site called Pixabay), they look similar enough to the last scones I’ve baked… which had no dairy—at all. While having some issues with dairy a while ago, I experimented with dairy-free recipes. I substituted vegan butter for the regular kindContinue reading “Can You Believe… Dairy-Free Scones are Delicious?”

Dairy-Free Doughnuts… A Mild Disaster

Although I have cooked beignets before (usually from a mix), Saturday, May 19th, 2018, was my first time making doughnuts from scratch. Thanks to my dairy intolerance, I can no longer enjoy commercial-made baked goods unless they are specifically labeled as dairy-free or come from somewhere that never uses dairy. I am hoping to remove this intolerance.Continue reading “Dairy-Free Doughnuts… A Mild Disaster”

Fudge with Just Two Ingredients

Fudge is delicious. It comes in many flavors and those are good, as well, even if they’re kind of expensive at times. While trying to find a healthy dessert recipe, I came across a fudge recipe with only two ingredients: chocolate and almond butter. You read that right. Here’s how you do it. You meltContinue reading “Fudge with Just Two Ingredients”
