It seems I keep reading about chocolate chip cookies – David Lebovitz had a recipe for salted butter chocolate chip cookies and Tartelette had one for 36 hour gluten-free cookies. A few clicks later and I was suddenly reading an article from The New York Times on the quest for the perfect chocolate chip cookie. According […]

    As I have previously mentioned, I recently bought David Lebovitz’s Ready for Dessert. I love sweet things! After an almost disaster with the Daring Baker’s Swiss Roll challenge, Saskia and I whipped up these cookies.

Dubbed “crack” brownies by our friend B (this moniker was given well before Momofuku milk bar brought out its beloved […]

On Good Friday Mr M and I found ourselves at home and in the mood for a cooking fest. I had an intense craving for a hot cross bun as due to my wheat-free status this Easter I hadn’t eaten one at all (usually I can get my hands on some lovely rye buns from […]

At boarding school, we were given ‘tiramisu’ for dessert about once a month. I remember it as a foul concoction of supermarket jam scrolls, packet custard, and raspberry jelly. (Or whatever leftovers the cook decided to ‘inventively’ combine.) It was not one of my favoured desserts in those days. The tiramisu that was set as […]

A new year and the Daring Kitchen has kicked off again. The January 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Lauren of Celiac Teen. Lauren chose Gluten-Free Graham Wafers and Nanaimo Bars as the challenge for the month. The sources she based her recipe on are 101 Cookbooks and www.nanaimo.ca. I was pretty enthusiastic about […]
