    Homemade Cheese and Onion Bread

    Cheese and Onion Bread

    There is nothing more satisfying than a slice of freshly baked homemade bread with a sliver of butter. Bread is one of the great joys of life. In fact, bread is life. Unless of course you have specific health issues or following a strict low-carb diet. All I can say is that you are missing out. 

    The whiff of homemade bread that hovers in the kitchen as it bakes will make you salivate. And it is even more satisfying if you baked it yourself from scratch. View Post

    Cranberry, Apricot and Pistachio Biscotti {Sweet, Crunchy and Deliciousness in every bite}

    cranberry apricot pistachio biscotti sweet crunchy deliciousness bite

    Hi lovelies! Are you in the mood for baking this weekend and looking for something to stock up your cookie jar? Then I have just the recipe for you.

    Let just say I’ve got a new baking craze and that is for biscotti biscuits. My new little obsession started when we visited White Water Farm during the holidays. With the complimentary coffee and tea, there was also delectable biscotti biscuits. It was so lovely that we couldn’t help but dig in.

    Twice-baked biscuit cookie is the definition of the word “Biscotti”. It is exactly that, baking it twice to make it crunchy. Although the modern Biscotti, also known as Cantucci is associated with the Tuscan regions of Italy, the origin of this biscuit go as far back as the Roman times.

    Simple Vanilla Cupcakes

    Baking is one of the things I love to do when I have time of course. Cupcakes is my favorite thing to bake. It is quick, no fuss and always flop proof. Flop proof in a sense that I never over mix my batter. Besides it being the easiest thing to bake, the end result is always different. Although the recipe and method stays the same, you can decorate it to look different every time. It can also be filled with caramel, fruit and chocolate spread.
