If there’s one thing Collin knows how to make, it’s quiche. I mean, he can make other things as well, but this is one of his specialities. However, his quiche making method hasn’t been particularly well documented, so I took it upon myself to try and capture the recipe to share here.
Between work, appointments, errands, house warmings, and other events that have popped up unexpectedly over the past couple of weeks, things have been pretty busy around here. The weather has also been gloriously warm, so I’ve chosen to spend what little spare time I have had puttering around the garden and fussing over my plants. As such, I haven’t had much free time to hunt down new recipes to try out.
May the fourth be with you! I baked these Wookie cookies and little Ewoks in honour of Star Wars day, and for Peter Mayhew, the actor who played our beloved Chewbacca, who passed away earlier this week.
Believe it or not, I don’t spend my entire day looking at pictures of food, making food, and eating food, although I know sometimes it appears that way. My 9-5 weekday hours are instead spent working as a product manager at a software company.
I’ve never been a huge hot cross bun fan. I don’t dislike them at all, but I don’t ever find myself thinking: “You know what I could really go for right now? A hot cross bun!” Regardless, I enjoy them well enough, and I eat them every year when Easter rolls around. However, after making these, my flippant attitude towards these under appreciated buns has changed forever.
More than 6 years ago, I put my name on the waitlist for a plot at my local community garden. I had just about forgotten that I was even on the list, when I received an email a few weeks ago with the subject line: “Plot #38 available”. The wait was finally over!
Last summer, I desperately wanted to buy myself an ice cream maker. Not one of the ones that requires pre-freezing a bowl (who has room in their freezer for that?), but one that you can just plug in and leave to let the magic happen.
As you may or may not know, I love bunnies. I mean, really love bunnies. Everything about them, from their wiggly little noses, to their fluffy cotton tails. They are hands down, the cutest little fluff nuggets to hop around on this earth. So naturally I felt the need to pay homage to these adorable creatures by making a batch of bunny cookies!
Carrot cake is one of those desserts that I tend to forget about until it’s right under my nose, and then suddenly I remember how much I enjoy it. Over the years, I’ve eaten my fair share of this often under appreciated treat, but I’ve never actually made one myself. At least, until now.
This week I was planning on making a St. Patrick’s day themed something or other, but then the plague hit me hard and I spent several days sliding in and out of various states of consciousness. Luckily, this cake is delicious any day of the year, so I’m just going to roll with this and recommend you make it anyway.
