Little orange soufflé puds

I swear I used to be good at math. I may have said this before, but it’s true. I was, like, really good, you guys. If I had more discipline, I may have even gone into a STEM field, but alas, I’m lazy and really good at BSing my way through papers, so I went…

Roast vegetable and goat’s cheese torte

What am I making? I mean the photo looks delicious, but I’m so confused about most of the savoury recipes. Tortes are usually sweet and yet, there’s this oddity. I mean don’t get me wrong, it looks tasty. Roasted veggies are wonderful and goat’s cheese is my jam, so combining that with crepes seems like…

Bitter chocolate and stem ginger puds

“Puds.” Is that like an adorable pet name for “puddings”? I mean I assume so. It’s hard to know how to pronounce it. It’s like vase or scone or apricot. Puhds or poods? However you pronounce this term of endearment, I’ve decided to make them for my mom’s birthday since she loves both ginger and…

Mary’s mini coffee and walnut cakes

So I have to be honest with you folks. I know I could very well take a break because I just baked two bakes this last weekend, but I also just watched Julia & Julia and Julie Powell did 524 recipes in 365 days. Meanwhile, it’s been over a year, and I haven’t even reached…

Cheddar and mustard loaf

As you may recall if you just read my chocolate pecan macaron post, my friend and I had plans to watch a movie set in France while eating French food. The macarons were a complement to that idea. This loaf was the core of that idea. When we’ve made French food before, we’ve almost always…

Chocolate pecan macarons

Well hello stranger! It’s been a while, eh? Three weeks, to be exact. Three weeks since I’ve last spoken to you (technically written, not spoken), but not three weeks since I’ve baked. Three weeks ago, I made hideous but tasty fairy cakes topped with chocolate buttercream. Two weeks ago, I made pesto twists (my own…

Fairy cakes

Fairy cakes. More commonly referred to as “cupcakes” (or so I assume). I’m not sure why they’re called “fairy cakes.” It makes them sound magical somehow or possibly like they turn on like fairy lights or even more possibly like they’re filled with dish soap. (Don’t Brits have something called Fairy Liquid? Isn’t that a…

Paul’s povitica

I know I only recently baked, but I also only recently realized that I’ve done 40 recipes in the last year of me doing this and I still have 74 to go. So I started to feel the pressure. Also I had that whole milk that I wanted to use up (remember?), so I figured…

Hot white chocolate sponge puddings

Another bake? So soon? And with so little convincing? Yes’m. ‘Twas a rainy, autumnal Sunday just one day ago when I felt my heart call out for soup and something chocolatey. I went to my mother’s house and informed her that I would be making a ginger, carrot, apple and butternut squash soup as well…

Apricot custard tart

I’ve had my eye on this recipe for a little while. It seemed like one that I should try to do in the summer, and even though it’s September, I thought it still counted as summer. That is until I went shopping for apricots and found zero. Unfortunately my zero apricot result was after purchasing…
