X’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is one of those recipes that I’ve asked for a dozen times but never got. And then I did this person a favour and they gave it to me as a gift! 🙂 I’m seriously amazed at how people guard their recipes so carefully! I mean, really! Why?? No one reads this blog anyway,…

Flourless Brownie Cookies

This cookie originally started off as being those dark black cookies by Jim Lahey. But then morphed into something else. Everyone loved them. And so I’m sticking to this recipe. I mean, just look at them. They are amazing. A little bit chewy and dense like brownies, but crispy on the outside like cookies. And…

Ponchiki: Russian donut holes

Ponchiki are light, soft donuts which are made with farmer’s cheese (or ricotta), and very little flour. The outside is crispy and delicious and the interior is soft and billowy. My friend said they tasted like mini beignets. Betcha can’t eat just one! 🙂 Ponchiki (Recipe adapted from Olga’s Flavor Factory – one of the…

Easy Buttermilk Pancakes

I’ve written about so many different pancakes in this blog and each one has been a winner. We’ve just rotated the recipes in our house and try to make them all! We can’t really decide on one winning recipe. If the readers do use these recipes and can write in with feedback on the ones…

Molten Chocolate Cake

Make this today. Really. Just read the recipe, go to your kitchen and make this cake. And an hour later you’ll be enjoying molten chocolate cake, warm out of the oven with some fabulous icecream (please remember to have icecream on hand!). This is truly the simplest chocolate cake I’ve made it was a huge…

Easy Fluffy Pancakes

This is fourth in my series of pancakes. When it comes to pancakes, there’s no one recipe that you’ll make every single time. So its good to have as many recipes as you can under your belt, and you can rotate them depending on the time you have, the ingredients you have on hand and…

Buttermilk Pancakes…Again

Here we go again. Another buttermilk pancake. Another fail-safe recipe. This is easier than the other buttermilk pancakes I posted only because you don’t have to whisk the egg whites separately in this one. I prefer the other one, but this is really good too. My daughters preferred this one… (Okay, please don’t judge the…

Oats and Banana Pancakes

This is as simple as it can get. I loved the blog I got it from – she has some super simple recipes. And really, this couldn’t be healthier. So easy, healthy and my kids loved it. Tough to beat, right? Oats and Banana Pancakes (from Mums’ Days) 1 cup rolled oats 1 cup milk…

Buttermilk Pancakes

My daughter has been sick with a fever. She recovered a few days ago but I’m keeping her home for the week. The doctor said to give her anything she wants to eat or drink and allow her to get stronger and rest. And the only thing she ever wants are pancakes. Lots of pancakes…

Perfect Pound Cake

Do you spend some days wishing you had a small piece of a perfect cake? Or when you’re done with dinner, but just need that tiny forkful of something sweet? I love pound cake. It’s sweet but not overly so. And no icing, I’m not an icing fan. I’ve used Betty Crocker’s pound cake recipe…

Brown Butter Blondies

So brownies are … nice. I actually prefer cookies. How about you? I’m not a huge brownie/ blondies fan. Blondies are just brownies with chocolate. I prefer blondies to brownies though. This was just delicious. I read this in a Bon Appetit magazine.This is now my effort to make all the recipes that I’ve bookmarked…
