The Best Asian Cuisines I have Made

You know, you don’t have to only rely on restaurants for Asian food, whether it would be Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Korean, Vietnamese, and so on. Some people might, though, and that’s okay. However, some folks like to cook their own Asian cuisines. I’m a little bit of both, but more toward the commercially-made food. ButContinue reading “The Best Asian Cuisines I have Made”

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”

Homemade Chocolate Truffles and the Process of Making Them

Valentine’s Day might have triggered the idea of me making chocolate truffles. After all, they are part of the tradition. Many of us, including myself, love chocolate-covered strawberries. Yum!

I Like Pina Coladas… And Making That Into Pie

Do you like pina coladas? How about pie? What about combining the 2? That is what I did recently. I took some to a friend’s house. Everyone there, including my friend, himself, enjoyed it.

Oreo, Oreo, Oh, Oreo… Pops!

It’s like eating cookie dough… except that there are no raw eggs or flour. You just crush them and blend them with cream cheese. You could do this by hand, although I would recommend using a food processor… not just to save time, but also for better quality. I would have also included my ownContinue reading “Oreo, Oreo, Oh, Oreo… Pops!”

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?

However, berries containContinue reading “My Experience with Mixed Berry Pie”

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.

You canContinue reading “Candy Apples from Scratch: They’re Kickin’ Sweet and Amazing”

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”
