Posted on Wednesday, 21st July 2010 by Grace Massa Langlois I have yet to meet a person who doesn’t like Oreo cookies or Cream Cheesecake Cupcakes . Who could resist cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies ?
Pink Heart–Filled Cupcakes with Strawberry Taffy Frosting These vanilla bean cupcakes really have heart. Cut or bite into one to see how much love went into them. The best part: they’re surprisingly simple. And if your sweetheart happens to be a chocolate fan, you could just as easily bake your heart into some chocolate cake batter.
I’m fairly convinced that the world would be a better place if more sprinkles were involved. I know. I just made pancakes . It seems I have an unnatural obsession with cake batter. Well I do.
I find there’s a fine line between like and obsessed . A whisper-thin, sliver of a line. Take my reverence for Target, for example. What began nearly ten years ago as a casual, “Hey I really think that place is the cat’s pajamas” slipped almost too quickly into me considering ways to spend an entire weekend within its red doors.

Recipe: milk tea boba I did not expect the volume of comments and emails in response to my last post. At some point, I plan to sit down and reply to you when I can carve out a chunk of time and clear some space in my brain.
Recipe: chinese dumplings and potstickers [warning: a long post] Do you know what that one recipe was that started you on your cooking passion? I have cooked since I was a kid, but I didn’t get serious until I was a sophomore in college and I felt this cultural obligation to make dumplings from scratch to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Dumplings have lodged themselves in my head as my link to Chinese cooking and culture, but even better than that – mastering dumplings gave me the confidence to go forward and try other recipes and techniques. for the pork filling
Call me easily amused, but these little torch-topped cupcakes delight me. Besides being a cute novelty item for a party, I think they would add a little drama to the end of a romantic meal. I've been looking for something different to serve for Valentine's dessert, and this is definitely different. The strawberries are hollowed out and filled with a bit of liquor, then ignited with a match. For the cake portion, I chose a One Bowl Chocolate Cupcake recipe because 1. it's quick 2. it is easy, and 3. it fits my prerequisite for a light ending on date night. I should say, a light ending provided you don't eat too many.
Traditional Thai Kitchen (Click to enlarge) Thai cuisine is adaptable, innovative and dynamic. The best Thai cooking uses the freshest ingredients available to create the unique Thai taste. Thai taste can be defined as the use of all 5 flavors: spicy, sweet, salty, bitter and sour. Only Thai cuisine brings out all of these flavors to play together harmoniously in a meal. Here in the West it may be difficult to find all the exotic ingredients used in Thai recipes, but do not despair. With patience, creativity and constant tasting as you cook, you can create delicious dishes at home using just a few of the essential ingredients such as fish sauce .
Today I found myself pursuing the cold. I didn’t bundle up on our walk to the park after dinner. I did not turn up the heat when I got home. I removed my layers down to a t-shirt and procrastinated putting on my slippers just so that my chill could be cured from the warmth of a cup of hot cocoa topped with homemade marshmallows. I remained in a continuous slightly chilled state until I tucked my sweet boys in bed, so that my enjoyment of my warm treat would be uninterrupted.
Wouldn’t you be happy to get this as a Christmas gift? I read Catherine Newman’s post about making homemade vanilla as Christmas gifts and thought, Brilliant! I’m gonna do that this year! So we did.
I know this seems like a bit of a cop out, seeing as last year I made those lime bars , but the name of these just makes you want one, doesn’t it? It’s like one last throw back to the summertime captured in a cookie. raspberry lemonade bars for the crust: 9 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 stick, plus one tablespoon) 1/4 cup (50g) superfine sugar (or regular granulated) 1 cup (100g) of unbleached all-purpose flour pinch salt

Lara Ferroni has been with us before, with her Toasted Sesame and Vanilla ice cream , a hit (and her Sneak Peek ). This week we’ve invited her back for a another spoon dessert incorporating an ingredient from her garden: Melon, Ginger and Shiso Sorbet with Ginger Shiso Mojitos and Sours . The great thing about her submission is that it uses a syrup as a base which you can then use in other recipes. This one really is perfect for summer!
One of the surest signs of my peasant ancestry is my absolute love of stews. Call it what you will - cassoulet, ragout, chunky soups, potroasts; chuck it all in one pan and slow cook it till all the flavours have melded, the juice is viscous and the individual ingredients are on the verge of total disintegration, and I’m a happy girl. My nephew calls it cowboy food but his version is a little different to mine. He just throws everything he can find in the fridge or store cupboard in a pot and cooks it up.
