Puff Pastry Pull-Outs With Bacon & Cheese

It was a good way to make pastries without too much fuss. Just roll out the puff pastry, place all the toppings inside, wrap them all up and then bake them till the cheese melts. In this sense, you do not really need a timer because once the cheese melts, the pastry should be ready too....more

Matcha Petit Fours with White Chocolate Ganache

Betcha you're wondering what the hell matcha is. That's okay. I did too. But two of my dear friends had a birthday party and when I asked one what flavor I should go with for their delightful little bites of petite cake, she said matcha. And I said matchawha? I went stumbling around to various stores, scratching my head and wondering if I really had to go to an Asian market to get this shit. And then it dawned on me. Matcha is a kind of green tea powder.

Semlor are traditional buns originally eaten on Shrove Tuesday in anticipation of Lent. Although they are still eaten on Shrove Tuesday, they are available in the shops from after Christmas right through to Easter. Apparently, an average Swede will eat five store-bought Semlor, as well as home-baked, every year! And it is not hard to see why!...more

Sunshine in a Bite: Lemon Bar Cookie Recipe

This winter might not be so bad if we actually had a winter with pretty white drifts of snow. Instead, it's been cold. So very, very cold. We've been cooped up in the house and missing the sunshine. So, it seemed like a perfect day to make something lemony.Lemons just smell like summer. Fresh, bright and they even look like little suns. As it happens, I also volunteered to bake for a bake sale at the school. You know what that meant? I wouldn't be tempted to eat them all!
