The Everyday Baker: Everyday Baking Basics

Welcome to the first post in a year-long series examining Abby Dodge’s The Everyday Baker. Each month I will look at one chapter (at over 600 pages, 170 recipes and 1000+ step-by-step photos, its a little too hard to “review” in just one post) in detail, examining the recipes and techniques covered and making a […]

Tuesdays with Dorie (Baking Chez Moi): Hot Chocolate Panna Cotta

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is a combination of two of my favourite things: hot chocolate and panna cotta.  Dorie, being the very talented lady she is, has created a recipe which tastes exactly like hot chocolate but instead, it’s a smooth, cold dessert.

Review and giveaway: The Prairie Girl Cupcake Cookbook (CLOSED)

If you read this blog regularly, you’ll know what a huge fan I am of “minifying” recipes, especially sweet ones. With only two of us in the house, it’s not realistic to bake full recipe amounts of many of the recipes I make from cookbooks (see: Tuesdays with Dorie and French Fridays with Dorie participation).
