pearl sugar tea cake

pearl sugar cardamom tea cake

Cardamom. I can’t remember when or how I fell in love with this spice. But, I’m glad I did. Maybe I was wondering through Jerusalem’s Old City Souk. Maybe I was wondering through the spice aisle at World Market or Trader Joe’s. That doesn’t matter. What matters is that I […]

~blueberry & rhubarb compote & crumbles~

~blueberry & rhubarb compote & crumbles~

Sometimes you just must cross over to the ‘prissy’ side of serving your desserts after a fabulously boholicious meal~~and, it doesn’t matter with me if it’s just me or just hubby and me~~as in this dessert. Because these flavors and textures are beautifully varied~~a slight tartness in the compote, a […]

healthy fruit french toast

healthy fruit french toast

I love making my own healthy bread. You know the peasant earthy artisan kind that’s full of great grains like ground flax, whole wheat, oats, and more. There’s something connective with the earth and my spirit when I make bread. Stick with me, no, I’m not getting whacked out.  Any […]

Buttermilk Blueberry Scookies

buttermilk blueberry scookies

You may wonder—what’s a ‘scookie’?  It’s a new word I’ve created for this recipe because I started it out thinking I was making scones, but they ended up looking like a big fat yummy cookie, so they’ve become a ‘scookie’! These scookies are moist with a little touch of crunch—a […]

Sechuan Button & Spicy Blueberry Oven Roasted Wings

Wings are the rage, right?  Well, I’ve decided wings need a make-over like something that moves them from the traditional kinds we typically see on menus–spicy, hot, BBQ, teriyaki, buffalo, sweet and sour, Korean, crispy, etc.  Here’s the Top 10 Chicken Wings according to About.com…go check it out and see […]

Roasted Cream Cheese Anglecot Cherry Berry Cobbler

Of course you know about roasting marshmallows, and you’ve probably roasted a lot of veggies.  Then there’s the pot ‘roast’ and roast beef.  But, have you…roasted cream cheese?  That was the question I asked myself one day as I was plundering through my refrigerator one day looking for inspiration for something […]

‘Blueberry Lemon Mint Fizzy’

Finding something that can quench your thirst when the weather is hot, like really hot, is hard.  However, creating a refreshing drink to cool down your overheated body after riding, as in pedaling a bicycle, for over 35 miles in 95+ weather is a challenge! For the past six weeks, […]

Nectar of the Gods Peach Popovers

I’ve had so much fun with the popover pan I bought! Like a new clothing accessory, like earrings, I look at this unique baking implement and think about the many ways I can use it with cooking—it’s not just for popovers. I mean if that were the case, then it would not be used often! So, I’ve ‘boho’d’ the popover pan finding many applications for it from pasta to meat to pastries.

These peachy popovers are subtly sweet, the cake is dense and moist. The roasting and baking of the peach and blueberries with the cardamom sugar intensifies into a nectar of the Gods. I think you’ll love as much as I do! And, since it’s just so great, I’m sharing with ‘Weekend Potluck’ and Everyday Mom’s Meals Church Suppers–you’ll find more great recipes here!

Rhubarb Berry Sour Cream Cobbler

Rhubarb–when God invented it, I wonder if He knew the world would fall in love with it!  He made it just so unique…while the leaves are toxic, the stalks, kind of like celery, are tart and crisp and sugar sure does help. There are just so many things that can be […]

Fig Blueberry Dates & Nut Peasant Bread

My quick and easy version for making ‘peasant’ breads, or breads that look like they came from a Medieval kitchen, maybe a rancher’s log cabin kitchen, or, better yet, something from the Old World kitchens of Europe!  The steps are easy…the variations abound…and the flavor and tastes are just as […]
