Is it gratifying to cook Coconut Oats?

March 30, 2012

2

Some people love to cook. It is their go-to task, the thing they do to relax, the thing that brings them real joy at the  end of the day.  Trying to discover the source of that inherent, “joy of cooking” is one of the goals I had in mind as I began to explore the psychology of […]

Do you have a Coffee Cake habit?

March 13, 2012

8

Do you drink coffee every morning at 7am on the dot? Is it worse that I eat a slice coffee cake with as much regularity…perhaps even more often than I drink a cup of coffee? In the past few weeks, I have been hearing a lot about the new book The Power of Habit, written […]

What’s there to decide about Cinnamon Rolls?

February 14, 2012

I made a decision earlier this year. A new year’s resolution in fact: to learn how to work with yeast. So far, I have made pizza dough, naan, and these here cinnamon rolls. I’m doing pretty good! I realized though the decision to follow through on such a resolution has required me to make a […]

Some strange, but lovely and relatively talented cook has taken up residence in my kitchen. She feeds us good food. On Saturday, she served us fluffy pancakes, drizzled with a crimson triple berry sauce, warm maple syrup, and a dollop of butter melting down the sides. She made red wine braised short ribs, falling off the bone atop a pile of roasted garlic […]

Here’s the thing about hot chocolate. I love it! My mom has a recipe for the best hot chocolate mix, to which only hot water needs to be added because it includes powdered milk and powdered non-dairy creamer… plus lots of sugar! I don’t want to knock that recipe. It really is like chocolate heaven […]

Would you like to discuss Ginger Pear Crisp?

I have been doing some baking, so I would love to talk about the Pumpkin Cream Cheese muffins I made last week! Or perhaps Cranberry Orange Sour Cream muffins are a preferable topic. Or maybe Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Truffles, or what if I tell you about Ginger Pear Crisp? Well, actually, what I want to […]

What have these Molasses Bran Muffins done to my appetite?

October 20, 2011

I seem to have misplaced my appetite. I’m usually hungry all day long. Really. Sometimes, I’m hungry even after just eating, especially for any kind of dessert. But I can’t say that anymore. Now when I eat, I get full quicker and stay that way longer. It is quite a strange experience. At first, I couldn’t […]
