Do Try This At Home: Pumpkin Bread Pudding with Warm Caramel Sauce

SONY DSC

A few of you asked for the Pumpkin Bread Pudding recipe about which I posted yesterday. Since I wasn’t entirely thrilled with the pumpkin bread on its own, and I was most assuredly dissatisfied with the sweetened condensed milk (the base for the caramel sauce) on its own, I hadn’t intended to post the recipe. […]

Gastronomic Gifts II: Brandied Apricot-Ginger Spread

SONY DSC

[There's just nothing like a homemade gift for the holidays.  This year, with the purse strings a little tighter than usual, I'm determined to make at least a few in my kitchen--and thought I'd share my ideas in case you'd like to partake, too.  ]   As I’m wont to do during the drive to work, […]

French Toast Souffle with Summer Berries

[NB: A huge "THANK YOU" to all of you who sent good wishes my way yesterday. I really wasn't intending to sound so "woe-is-me" (I do that quite enough around the diet issues, thank you), but just reflecting on how the day could elicit positive vibes for all concerned.  Your comments sure worked toward that end for me, though: big […]

Vanilla Versus Vanilla

mufcupcake111

[That's our little Vanilla, in the middle] So, I heard somewhere that it’s hockey season now.  Oh, don’t look so surprised: despite having been raised in Montreal (a hockey town if ever there was one), I am indifferent to the sticks-and-pucks revelry. Personally, I’d rather read about the latest face-off between, say, brownies and blondies […]

Polish Lemon Cake*

*Okay, so it’s not really Polish.  But the topping reminded me of a German Chocolate Cake topping, and since (half) my ancestry is Polish, I thought I’d just use the same concept for this cake’s name.    Did you hear the one about the (half) Polish woman who wanted to bake a cake?  Just kidding. […]

Lucky Comestible II (5): Apple-Quinoa Cake

[I thought it would be fun to run a little series over here at DDD: I'll profile one one of my favorite foods, or a food that I've recently discovered and enjoyed, over several days.  For this second entry, I'm focusing on Quinoa. The series is presented on an occasional (and entirely arbitrary) basis, before I move on to the next lucky […]

A North American’s Anzac Biscuits (*or, My Ode to the Antipodes)

Ever since I was a teenager, I’ve had an ongoing love affair with the antipodes.  Well, come to think of it, that would be a one-sided love affair, since I’ve never actually been there. But hey, that’s okay.  I’m accustomed to those; my entire adolescence was flush with unrequited love. I’ve dreamt of visiting the Land Down Under since I […]

Smooth Operator

Way back in my salad days. . . . (Come on, now, who am I kidding? Okay, let’s start again): Way back in my cake-for-breakfast, Snickers-bar-for-breakfast, leftover-nachos-for-breakfast days, I was seemingly able to get it all done:  work at a burger joint until 1:30 AM, sleep five hours, get up and make it to school for […]

Mostly Raw Chocolate Truffles

trufflesonplate1

Aren’t chocolate truffles just the height of decadence?  At this time of year, they seem to abound on coffee tables, in buffets, or in scalloped porcelain dishes that have been handed down from generation to generation. Well, for dessert day here at DD&D, I thought I’d share a recipe for my favorite NAG-friendly chocolate trufffles. […]
