Happy Bread

Well, you were wrong! Booyah! I had planned to do great things yesterday. Cheddar Cheese Biscuits. The last time I made biscuits I was quite taken aback by the results.

Cheddar Cheese Biscuits

How could biscuits be soft on the inside? Here, cookies equal biscuits, so I just could not fathom why biscuits elsewhere would be any different. I was a little upset because I had followed the recipe to the T, yet they didn’t turn out to be quite like I’d imagined (from Jill O’Connor’s Sticky Chewy, Messy Gooey). So, when I went to the States a few months ago, one of the things on my agenda was to try some Southern style biscuits.

But before I go, here is an amazing recipe for the weekend. Orange Olive Oil Cake. An intoxicating combination of preserved oranges and olive oil intensifies the flavors of this cake.

Orange Olive Oil Cake

The cake is moist and dripping with fresh flavors and we could not but fall in love with this one. This particular recipe had been on my to-do list for a long time, and happy as I am to have finally given it a try, I also regret not having tried this earlier; this is a keeper. The cake tastes fabulous just by itself, gets better as it matures for a couple of days and tastes even better with some cold ice cream or whipped cream and preserved orange slices on the side. We have had it every way, and delighted a few friends of ours too. This is the cake to have by your coffee cup, or if you would want a slice after your meal, make it elegant with some cream and compote. The refreshing, juicy oranges in different shapes and sizes are actually spilling off and rolling down the shelves for the past few weeks. Chit Chat Chomp: What more could a girl want . . .

However, in a couple of months time the above sentence will no longer be true. I'll be cycling around the local villages, visiting Monet's garden, shopping at the food markets and basically eating all the French food I can get my hands on. I'm salivating as I think about it. For me, this holiday is all about immersing myself in French life. All in a weekend show on CBC Radio Canada, and a strawberry cake. Hello Montréal!

Hello everyone, We arrived late last night. Tired but happy to be back in Montréal. Ready for tonight at Chapters Indigo. Are you coming? Cinnamon Sugar Apple Cake. I like this little tradition that I’ve established. Apple-desserts-and/or-breakfasts posts on Fridays. The only person complaining about this tradition is my ambitiously slim pencil skirt, which I might add was probably the worst purchase of 2011. It’s greyish, pinstriped, adorable, and I love it in theory. Chocolate Chip Graham Cracker Cookies. Posted by: Annie You can never have too many versions of chocolate chip cookies!

There is a hilarious scene in an episode of Sex and the City where Miranda makes herself a homemade chocolate cake. She starts off by eating one thin sliver of the cake and then walks away. The camera frame doesn't leave the kitchen the entire scene.

You see her walk back into the kitchen just seconds later and help herself to another minuscule piece of the sinful treat. After she leaves the shot she is once again back within seconds and cuts herself a third helping. Old-Fashioned Pound Cake. My sister had both families over for dinner the Thursday night before the wedding day and it was such a lovely evening. The weather that week was tailor made for a wedding and we are so grateful for the sunny days and warm weather, especially since right after we have been shivering in the chill.

Spring, where are you? I think she might have arrived this week. I’ve shared my sister and brother-in-law’s backyard before and it is such a gorgeous oasis to enjoy the outdoors. A fish pond with goldfish and koi is center stage. Lots of pretties to look at. Buttermilk Pound Cake. April 28, 2010 at 5:56 pm Last week, I spent more time in the airport than in school. I was visiting colleges I’d been accepted to, hoping to find the one that spoke to me. I only applied to schools in the east coast, so there was a lot of flying in store. My dad went with me. We took eight flights in total, and unfortunately, we weren’t lucky when it came to the Russian roulette of flight-booking. But for me, the worst part about it was the boredom.
