New gadgets are fun. I was leafing through (more like studying) the latest issue of Donna Hay magazine and saw this Zoku Quick Pop Maker that makes popsicles in less than 10 minutes. It’s been out for awhile and reviewed in a bunch of places — here’s theKitchn’s take — but I’d just missed it somehow.
Recipe by: squeak_15xes If you like your cookies soft but not floury, these are for you. You can vary the choc-chips - I love them with mini MMs, or white chocolate and macadamias.
Hummingbird Cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and place the rack in the center of the oven. Butter or spray two - 9 x 2 inch (23 x 5 cm) round cake pans and line the bottoms of the pans with a circle of parchment paper. Place the pecans on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for about 8 minutes or until lightly browned and fragrant.
Cheesecakes: Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) and place oven rack in the center of the oven. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners. (Can also use silicone baking cups.)
I saw a picture of these the other day on Allrecipes.com and thought it was such a cute idea, I had to try it. After googleing it, I found a good tutorial on Stacy's Sweet Shop . I modified a few things to make it more simple for me (less homemade more store bought).
I had been putting off making crepes because I thought they were difficult to make. I decided to try making them and they turned out to be pretty easy. A small no-stick pan and a thin spatula that could get under the edge of the crepe to turn it over came in pretty handy. They are pretty good all by themselves when still warm from the pan though they are normally stuffed with goodies. I look forward to trying more recipes with crepes in the future.
