Kerrygold Cashel Blue Cheese – Savory Walnut Shortbread Cookies & Rye Rosemary Cashel Blue Cheese Bread

[Translate] Recently, I’ve received a large wheel of Kerrygold Cashel Blue Cheese. Since I love cheese of every kind my mind was buzzing with ideas as to what to do with it. Cashel Blue cheese has a unique, voluptuous, creamy texture with a minerally undertone (I even taste malt) complemented by a delightful, mild blue tang. It’s a cheese that has lots of big flavors that could stand up to a lot of robust foods, beers, and even a good Pinot Noir. (more…)

Chobani Greek-Style Yogurt: Whole Wheat Banana Walnut, Ginger, Pineapple Yogurt Muffins & Lemongrass Frozen Yogurt Recipes

[Translate] I have an obsession with Greek style yogurt. I love its tartness, the thick, spreadable, frosting-like texture, and it is healthy. Don’t get me wrong, I love my butter, sugar, chocolate and pork but sometimes having a break with yogurt is sometimes what I need. So, I went on a little nuts in getting a bunch of Chobani yogurts from my local market ranging from plain 0% (great for cooking and baking) to flavored ones that I tend to have for breakfast or as a light dessert to end my day. Almost anyone know how to make a yogurt..

Hazelnut-Almond Strawberry Thumbprint Cookies for Valentine’s Day, Lunar New Year, or Any Other Day

[Translate] During the course of my work week, I was craving something crunchy. I can’t explain it but it’s certainly one of those times that I have the strongest, indescribable desire to eat crunchy food. Since I didn’t want potato chips or pretzels, even though it was Super Bowl weekend, I searched my house and found a bag of mixed unshelled nuts. I perused my recipe collection I collected over the years and found this: hazelnut strawberry thumbprint cookies. It’s a simple cookie recipe. The small problem was, I didn’t have enough hazelnuts. (I’m presuming my dad liked that particular..

Coconut-Lemon Sablés

[Translate] Sablé cookies The weekend of my mom’s surgery (that’s two weeks ago), I baked her coconut-lemon sablé cookies. Why? She loves any and almost every coconut dessert or confection and I think cookies are a cinch to bake. I just chose sablés because she likes the crumbly, sandy texture of this rich cookie except she never remembers the name of it. As some of you bakers out there know that sablés are sort of hard to bake because of the texture, I found out from Cook’s Illustrated that there’s a secret to getting it right and it all goes..

Baking a Birthday Cake and Eating at Helen’s House

[Translate] Here’s all the work put into it Two weeks ago I baked a cake for my younger brother’s 21st birthday. Yeah, he’s all grown up now and I feel kinda old just thinking back how little he was. [Sniffles] (more…)
