I made this rhubarb upside-down cake for the first time last year and I couldn’t resist making it again! The first time I made it, I baked it as a 9 inch round cake, but this time I wanted to see how it would turn out if miniaturized. Spoiler alert – it turned out great!
I am officially obsessed with these strawberry rhubarb hand pies. The filling is to die. It’s fruity and sweet and a little bit tart. The pastry is rich and buttery. I ended up making them twice this week and both batches disappeared very quickly. I’ve had to restrain myself from making a third batch!
Earlier this spring I planted an abundance of radish seeds, expecting that most of them wouldn’t sprout. Lo and behold they all sprouted, so we have been eating radishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner for two weeks now. The latest radish dish I concocted was this potato salad.
I had two recipe ideas in mind to try this week – one was for mini victorian sponge cakes, the other was for these cheese muffins. I did a quick survey with some friends and co-workers to see what they thought sounded better. A resounding 100% voted in favour of the cheese muffins! Maybe the mini cakes will win out next week.
The wonderful thing about peanut butter cookies, is that there are so many recipes out there that require so few ingredients. The peanut butter flavour in itself is very distinct, so as long as you like peanut butter, I find it’s actually hard to come across a really bad peanut butter cookie.
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.
