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”

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”

Candy Apples from Scratch: They’re Kickin’ Sweet and Amazing

A few times a year, I like to make candy apples from scratch. It’s only a few ingredients: apples (obviously), corn syrup, sugar, water, and red food coloring. The hardest part is having to get the right temperature in order to dip the apples into the candy liquid. You will need a thermometer. You canContinue reading “Candy Apples from Scratch: They’re Kickin’ Sweet and Amazing”

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 temporary 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 thisContinue reading “Dairy-Free Doughnuts… A Mild Disaster”

Double Chocolate-Chip Cookies: Dairy-Free & Delicious

They were chewy, sweet, and chocolaty. They had vegan butter and coconut oil as well as dairy-free chocolate chips. And they were not only delicious, but they were also irresistible. My family could taste the coconut, although I could not. They did not enjoy the cookies as much as I did. But I could notContinue reading “Double Chocolate-Chip Cookies: Dairy-Free & Delicious”

Healthy and “Happy” Chocolate Chip Cookies

If only my cookies ended up as good as the ones above, taken from Pixabay, a public-domain image website. Obviously, I don’t know how these taste. However, I wanted to share my experience on a recipe where I substituted for healthier ingredients, but, unfortunately, failed. Although substituting works most of the time, sometimes it sadly doesn’t. IContinue reading “Healthy and “Happy” Chocolate Chip Cookies”

Healthy Gingerbread Cookies – They’re Luckily Delicious, No Matter What

I found a recipe for healthy gingerbread cookies on Google a while back. For copyright reasons, I will not post the link. However, you can search for it or any other one on your own. The one I am going to discuss is not only healthier, but is also dairy-free (it called for coconut oil,Continue reading “Healthy Gingerbread Cookies – They’re Luckily Delicious, No Matter What”

Trick or Treat with This Sweet Skillet Cookie

Ah, the gooey, chewy, skillet cookies–who doesn’t love them, especially when warm and topped with ice cream (which I didn’t use since I didn’t have any in my house)? Well, I used a recipe that was rated close to 5 stars, and had the best rating compared to the other recipes I found on Google.Continue reading “Trick or Treat with This Sweet Skillet Cookie”
