Strawberry Souffle

I have always wanted to make a souffle.  It has been one of those things that I just hadn’t gotten around to making myself.  When I saw this recipe at Closet Cooking, I knew I would have to give it a try.  Even though the recipe said it would be easy, I was still surprised…

Blueberry Buttermilk Muffins

I have made many different kinds of blueberry muffins, but I think that this recipe is my new favorite.  Muffins, particularly whole grain muffins, have a tendency to disappoint.  The buttermilk really adds a lot to the flavor and texture.  They rose higher than expected and were delicate and light.  From what I understand, the…

Spaghetti Bolognese

I have wanted to make it since I saw it on Michael Smith’s Chef at Home series. Lobster is obviously expensive and this is a…

Orange Yogurt Cake

I really wanted to bake a cake over the weekend. J tried his best to talk me out making something citrusy in favor of chocolate.  The truth is this: I have kind of lost my taste for chocolate cake. I guess I should be happy about that. I really wanted to use two oranges that…
