Crispy Potato Latkes

Thumbnail for 2761
Crispy potato pancakes weren’t something that I grew up eating, but once I found them in adulthood, I couldn’t get enough. My grandma used to make a similar potato pancake, but out of mashed potatoes instead. They were good, but there’s something totally blissful about being able to eat the equivalent of hash browns for dinn [...]

Bakers Celebrate National Punctuation...

Thumbnail for 2757
And now… Punctuation Tips From Professional Bakers…   1) Always put punctuation at the end of a sentence. Unless you forget or think it looks better this way. I like it.   2) Quotation marks are perfect for emphasizing you don’t understand quotation marks. “Good” job!   3) They can also help [...]

Titled White Wedding Cake

An all-white wedding cake can be stunning and elegant and just downright beautiful when done properly. Take this cake – the tilted white wedding cake. Each tier is playfully tilted in a Mad-Hatter-Alice-in-Wonderland manner which makes this cake whimsical and elegant. The stark white icing is accented on each tier with dates significant [...]

Morning Buns

Thumbnail for 2749
Morning buns are one of the most fabulous bakery pastries you’ll ever find. If you’ve never had them, they’re part cinnamon roll, part croissant, and have just a hint of citrus, which makes them totally and utterly irresistible. I could eat these every single morning for the rest of my life. I may have also eaten these in th [...]

Autumn's Equal Knocks

Thumbnail for 2745
Ahh, fall. The time of year that puts a little nip in the air – not to mention our bakeries! WHAT.   Fall just officially started yesterday, but bakers are already WAY ahead of us: You can almost smell it, am I right? The Autumn air, I mean.   Oh! And look! A poopkin! Ahh, how I’ve missed those.   Plus this [...]

Thumbnail for 2743
This totally maple syrup sweetened apple crisp is vegan, grain-free, and dairy-free! The book manuscript is due in a week and I’m pretty much done, meaning I’m back to baking for the blog! I’ve made a ton of crisps, crumbles and other fruit desserts for the book but my selection on the blog is pretty sad. I thought a grain [...]

DIY: Homemade Velveeta Cheese

Thumbnail for 2741
When it comes to making things from scratch in the kitchen, I tend to tow a line that falls somewhere between making everything from scratch and picking up the occasional packaged/processed food for a special recipe. Since I don’t make it a habit, I don’t have much of an issue using those types of things on rare instances. Take Ve [...]

Symbol Crash!

Thumbnail for 2737
We’ve learned by now to never ask a wreckerator to actually draw anything, but surely they can handle a simple paw print like this, right? [insert loud, raucous laughter here]   Ahem. [...] Oh, sorry. I was trying to… [putting on sunglasses]… PAWS FOR EFFECT.   Granted, this Army 1st Sergeant insignia is little [...]

Wedding Cake with Roses

Thumbnail for 2735
There are so many colors and varieties of roses which means you can use them year-round no matter the season. If you’re planning a fall wedding you can think about using deep hued roses like Black Magic roses or even some lighter reds and orange colored roses like the ones used on this cake. I love this cake not only for the roses used [...]

Salted Caramel Apple Cake

Thumbnail for 2733
This cake. Oh. My. Gosh. I have had the page doggy-eared in Baked Explorations ever since I bought the book, which was something like four or five years ago. One of the downfalls of having a huge stash of cookbooks is that a lot of really great recipes can fall between the cracks. This was one of those unfortunate incidents, and am I ever gla [...]

Itty-Bitty Brownie Bites

Thumbnail for 2731
I made some more minis this weekend. I’m talking tiny, one-bite brownies dipped and decorated with chocolate to look like little cupcakes. They are so cute … I can’t stand it. And even better… they are a breeze to make using a brownie mix… … and some of the products in my new line with Make’n Mold. (candy wafers, cups mold and pastry bags) [...]

Whether you’re a kid or just feel like one, nothing beats seeing one of your favorite characters in cake, am I right? And if you’ve already seen Guardians of the Galaxy, I bet this is one of your new favorites: HE IS GROOT! And just look at all that fabulous detail & airbrushing! There’s been so much Groot love online, [...]
