Empanada Gallegas

Patri of the blog, Asi Son Los Cosas, was our September 2012 Daring Bakers’ hostess and she decided to tempt us with one of her family’s favorite recipes for Empanadas! We were given two dough recipes to choose from and encouraged to fill our Empanadas as creatively as we wished! This was my first month […]

Brownies with Mint Chips

I bake a LOT for Beardy Boyfriend’s work. Well, really, I bake a lot and send it off with Beardy Boyfriend and am told it makes it to work.  But this arrived for me at work last week. Aren’t they lovely?  They were sent to me by the lovely folks at the company that Beardy […]

Chiswick High Street

Chicken Tortilla Soup and Pioneer Woman Cooks

Baby Shower Sugar Cookies

You, guys, I’m old… Really old.  So old that Beardy Boyfriend now has friends who are having babies.  Trust me, this news was disconcerting!  BUT obviously, we’re super excited for them and obviously, as everyone knows, the best way to show someone how excited you are for them is baking.  Everyone thinks that, right?  Maybe. […]

Coconut Milk Cake

This recipe came from an idea for a Beardy Boyfriend Bake.  I wanted to do something a little bit unusual (I have done lots of lemon.  Lots and lots of lemon) and so I decided to throw in a bit of a curveball with this coconut milk cake.  Very simple and very lovely! Coconut Milk […]
