stonesoup — 5 ingredient recipes

It’s called ‘The Butcher and the Vegetarian’. It chronicles my friend’s journey from vegetarian to occasional meat eater for health reasons. And it’s a great read. Tara talks about growing up, when her mother was all about making everything as healthy as possible. They often ate steamed veg with brown rice and NO oil or salt. It made me a little sad because I think there is often a misconception that healthy food can’t be pleasurable. The thing is, if you eat broccoli and actually enjoy it, you get the same health benefits as if you ate it like it were a badge of honour. So today I wanted to share my favourite tricks for making veg taste amazing… Because aren’t we all more likely to eat more veg if we actually enjoy them? 6 Ways to Make Vegetables Taste as Good as Potato Chips* 1.

Green Tea Cupcakes with Black & White Frosting

These little green tea cupcakes with black & white frosting not only look the part, but also satisfy my sweet tooth without giving me a cavity. I’m not usually a big fan of cupcakes, but it’s most because either they’re way too sweet or just way overloaded on buttercream frosting. These green tea cupcakes aren’t too sweet at all and I have to admit, the white chocolate cream frosting with black sesame powder is finger-licking good. The little bit of ground almonds in the cupcake batter help keeps the cake moist and gives it some extra flavor. If you want these cupcakes to look even more ghoulish and spooky, you can top them with Halloween icing candy, candy tombstones, or gummy spiders.

For the Green Tea Cupcakes: For the Black & White Frosting: Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a small mixing bowl, add 2 teaspoons water and sprinkle on the gelatin. The Food Librarian. Tuesdays with Dorie. Berlin's Whimsy - The Danish Baker. And then I worked as a baker at a small, artisan bakery.

Berlin's Whimsy - The Danish Baker

Initially, I envied the owner of the bakery. I only worked two days a week during the summer tourist months, allowing her a few days off. But there was one caveat to my baking aspirations: I am not a morning person. In fact, I take to early mornings like a slug takes to a salt lick. And in my third season of baking, I realized my inner clock would never adjust. That same summer, I discovered Aebleskivers. My daughter played along, too---no surprise since she loves anything with jam. One weekend, my Dad telephoned in the midst of my making them. What?! So my Great-Grandfather was a baker. Well. And today, we made Aebleskivers again.
