Rustic Raisin Walnut Bread

It was during the holidays that I had encountered the most wonderful rustic bread. It was a whole wheat bread made with sweet raisins and crunchy walnuts. I didn’t even get to taste the bread, but I couldn’t stop thinking of it. 

Coconut Cream Pie

There were lazy days recently enjoyed over here; lazy days when I was getting over a flu and my kids were home on spring break. I have so many recipes to share and haven’t had the time to get to it. While I was sick, all I could think of was making a Coconut Cream Pie.


Ham and Cheese Quiche {Quiche con Prosciutto e Formaggio}

I’m just like the average person that gets a mad craving for something. Maybe I’m not like the average person because most of my mad cravings involves a homemade pie crust. And it’s usually ME that is making the pie crust. So sadly many of my cravings remain just that, a craving.

Chocolate Swiss Roll

It had been months that I was planning to make a tronchetto di Natale. A gorgeous yule log cake (in France it is called Bûche de Noël)  made during the holidays and usually directed with pretty meringue mushrooms.  I planned. I dreamed. I set the date.


Orange Yogurt Mini-Bundt Cakes

I know…not just one bundt. But multiple mini bundts! I sometimes can’t help myself! The glaze is torture to look at again. I’ll keep this brief so I can go and bake some more!


Malibu Marshmallows

I think it’s pretty obvious from my last post that I have a soft spot for coconut and coconut desserts. I hadn’t planned on making that many desserts with coconut in it these last few weeks. It just sort of happened that way.

Coconut and Almond Cake {Torta di Cocco e Mandorle}

Birds are chirping and the temperatures dropped again. This is crazy winter in South Florida. It can be very confusing. One day I’m wearing flip-flops and on that same day, I’m in my boots.


Kale and Black Rice Stir-Fry

My wok has been one of my favorite friends in my kitchen since I learned what to cook with it. Stir-fries are quick and fun to make. You can really use your imagination and create something different for your family and friends.


Marbled Chocolate Brioche Loaf

Well, hello gorgeous bread! Say good morning to one of the fluffiest breads I’ve EVER baked!

This was a big bread baking job. Not big in the sense that it was impossible. It was big in the sense that the recipe has many steps. I had to keep referring to the recipe and make sure I was on the right line and that I didn't skip a step. It takes focus and an immense desire.
