Odds and Ends Baking

One of my biggest pet peeves is wasting food. I’ve been known to sit and finish the food my kids leave on their plates, just so it doesn’t end up in the trash. I know there are others like me out there, and for that reason, I wanted to make a post about using the…

Savoury No-Knead Bread

I’m enjoying the no-knead bread experience. It’s new to me, but it’s a lot of fun. Creating delicious bread with minimal effort, and waking up to a bowl of ready to bake dough, is perfect. I decided I wanted to make a savoury version to pair with the pasta dish I had planned this week….

Eggless, Coffee and Dulce de Leche Blondies

I hate wasting food. It’s one of my biggest pet peeves. So when I found myself with three quarters of a can of sweetened condensed milk just sitting in the fridge with no real purpose, I decided to transform it into the oh-so-delicious Dulce de Leche. It is extremely simple to do. You just need…
