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!

Items I Want to Cook During My Lifetime

Oftentimes, when we hear the word, “bucket-list,” we think of traveling. But who says that you can’t have a bucket list for cooking? Yes, you read that right. There are so many items I want to learn how to cook, but are either too time-consuming or are too difficult. Most of these foods I’ve triedContinue reading “Items I Want to Cook During My Lifetime”

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”

Cookie Decorating Techniques You May Want to Try

In mid-December, I demonstrated a virtual cookie decorating lesson for my friends. As you can see in the picture I took, I did polka-dots, a snowman, a sunflower, rainbow stripes, a rose and a basketball. The rose and basketball don’t really look accurate. But, hey, I tried. So, here is the first tip: when mixingContinue reading “Cookie Decorating Techniques You May Want to Try”

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”

I Had a Blast with These Blueberry Muffins!

When lockdown began, I stress-baked like crazy. I normally love the blueberry muffins from Dunkin’ Donuts (or now just Dunkin), and I still could have gotten them to go. Where I live, many restaurants still offered take-out, delivery, or curbside pickup. Anyway, I tried making these muffins using a kopykat recipe from the Internet. ItContinue reading “I Had a Blast with These Blueberry Muffins!”
