Dutch baby pancakes with blueberries, creme fraiche and bluberry compote

May 19, 2020

I enjoy making Dutch baby pancakes now and then. I don’t know why they are called Dutch though. When we were in holland they were no where to be found and whoever I asked, did not know about them. What they have in Holland are the little proffertjes, small round delicious pancakes that you can have all day long. These are reminiscent of popovers as they puff up in the oven and create a bowl...

Vegan pancakes

March 30, 2020

It’s the kind of morning that requires pancakes. Cloudy, blowing outside, cushions flying off all over the rooftop patio. I was almost blown off myself trying to retrieve them in the wind and rain. But, it was fun. I make the pancake plant based without using eggs and oil BUT I can’t give up the whipped cream, so there. You, of course, suit yourself:). They are light and fluffy because of the baking powder so... View Article

Waffles with oats and strawberry sauce

March 25, 2020

I was dying to go out for breakfast this morning but of course, we must stay home. So I made waffles, something I don’t indulge in too often but enjoy it when I do. #quaratinecooking#dontroamstayhome#physicaldistancenotsocialdistance#physicaldistancesocialconnection . So I spent some time with our daughter and baby on video, sang to him (he wasn’t impressed) and got a few smiles and cooing. I think he may like the sound of my voice. Thank you @alexis_honce for staying connected. made... View Article

Brioche and sugar buns

March 16, 2020

Thankfully I love both cooking and baking so when I need a break from one I have the other. This week I am participating in one of those online challenges that are popular among foodies on Instagram and the subject was enriched breads. Those challenges are not a competition but rather an opportunity to connect with like minded foodies from around the globe, see each other’s work, exchange ideas and learn. When it comes to...

Chocolate Waffles

March 1, 2020

Just in time for Sunday morning breakfast here is a recipe for either breakfast or dessert. Not an everyday thing but fun now and then.

Turkish eggs

February 16, 2020

The French have their egg en cocotte (eggs baked in cream) and the Turkish have their Turkish eggs, served over warmed yogurt with garlic and salt. You have to try it to get it.

Cinnamon sugar cakes

January 26, 2020

I baked these lovely little cakes to use in an image for the online food photography challenge I am participating in. It’s a lot of work producing all these images but I have been having fun with it, working in a community of creative foodies/photographers, making online friends and expanding my horizons. The little cakes were so delicious that I thought I’d share the recipe here. You can make a vegan version of it by... View Article

Blood Orange and Dates Muffins

January 23, 2020

Still in the citrus theme, I made muffins using whole blood oranges and medjool dates and dusted them with powdered sugar when they cooled after baking. This is one of the oranges I created for the food photography online challenge, but ended up submitting something else. I make these by mixing the orange, dates, juice etc (the wet ingredients) in the food processor, and add them to the flour (dry mixture) when ready to bake.... View Article

Plant based fat free scones

November 27, 2019

As promised I am posting a recipe for plant based scones that are also fat free. I don’t often make health claims on any of my recipes but I think this one would pass as healthy by most people. I used quinoa flour in the first recipe and it has quite a distinct quinoa”ish” flavour. If you want something less pronounced either use another flour (like oat or spelt) or blend half quinoa and half... View Article

French toast (a.k.a. Pain Perdu)

November 25, 2019

This is not something I make frequently but when I want it I want it and today was the day. Luckily I had good homemade bread that worked well with this, or get a beautiful challah bread, or a brioche if you are lucky. Otherwise, any good white bread would do. You can use whole wheat but this is not a health dish, it’s more like a rare treat. It’s best to leave the bread... View Article

Brioche

November 24, 2019

Marie Antoinette became famous, or infamous, for her saying “Qu’ils mangent de la brioche”, loosely translated to “let them eat cake”. Well, if she was offering brioche to the masses, maybe it was not such a bad thing (relax, just kidding). As it is brioche is my number one go to breakfast bread, even more so than the hallowed croissant, which I love as well. However, given a choice, which happens rarely, I would choose... View Article

Fat free dairy free apple muffins

November 12, 2019

    I made these little guys while visiting my daughter Alexis in Toronto. My daughter Jade and I flew to visit Alexis who is expecting a baby in January. We had a fun gals week, eating, shopping, cooking and relaxing. Too bad they all live so far from us. These are simple muffins that do not contain dairy or fat. The little bit of sugar is optional, I forgot to add it when I... View Article
