 Fresh Blueberry and Raspberry Pie

This post could also be titled: “How to surprise and awe your wife on a lazy Sunday evening.”  Rachel and I were sitting on the couch, enjoying the fire and reading.  Like she does on many occasions, she asked me to get (…read more and get the recipe)

Five simple steps to a perfect S’more

July 16th, 2009

 A perfect s’more in six steps

We’ve been backpacking and camping a lot lately.  It is amazing how much better food can taste when you are camping, or after a long hard days worth of backpacking.  I always look forward to breakfast while camping, and dinner while backpacking but my favorite meal is dessert!  What else do you have while camping for dessert but S’mores!

When I was younger my family and I went (…read more and get the recipe)

Pumpkin Pie from a real pumpkin

November 18th, 2008

Pumpkin Pie from a real pumpkin

I’ve always wanted to do this, and actually I have done it once but it didn’t turn out so good.  This time is different though — it turned out GREAT!  I used a whole (small) ambercup squash to make this delicious treat taste homemade and, well, delicious!  Even after having a couple of things go wrong the pie still turned out to be good and it looked good to boot.  This process takes (…read more and get the recipe)

Grilled Dessert Pizza

September 9th, 2008

Grilled Dessert Pizza

Rachel and I needed a treat tonight.  I started searching the web for some homemade pizza ideas and stumbled upon this treat.  I knew I had to make it so, not only did we have homemade (and DELICIOUS) pizza (I’ll blog it later), but we also had grilled dessert pizza!  You can probably tell from the picture, but this was a treat that we won’t soon forget.  I hope you take a chance to try it.  Let me know what you think of it when you do in the comments!  Here’s how to do it: (…read more and get the recipe)

Marionberry Oat Bars

July 21st, 2008

Marionberry Oat Bars

Apparently, over at Stahlbush, it is Marionberry harvest season.  I can tell because Rachel keeps bringing home Marionberries!  Today I felt like dessert so I turned up the oven and got out the mixing bowls.  Rachel found this really cool Oregon berry website with some great recipes.  The savory ones look particulary interesting and I think we’ll be trying them soon!  Today’s dessert used their Marionberry oat bar recipe.  These things smell so good!  Here’s what I did: (…read more and get the recipe)

Angel Food Cake – Loaf Pan Experiment

July 8th, 2008

The Finished Cakes

I would like to welcome Mike Brindley, a co-worker and fellow food-lover.  He let me try some of this angel food cake and I have to say it was quite fluffy and delicious!  I hope you enjoy it! — Keith

I’ve always loved angel food cake; so light and airy. Years ago, I made it from a boxed mix, like my Mom did. Recently, I’ve seen some TV chefs make angel food from scratch and they emphasized how easy it was to make; that gave me the itch to try it for myself! But I didn’t have an angel food cake pan. So I decided to try it with loaf pans. (…read more and get the recipe)

Blueberry & Strawberry Cupcakes with Whipped Cream Frosting

July 3rd, 2008

Blueberry & Strawberry Cupcakes with Whipped Cream Frosting

I had to come up with something to celebrate the holiday with and for some reason around the 4th of July my mouth waters for every cake I see with whole blueberries and strawberries on top.  This cupcake recipe was my answer!  I used the Strawberry cupcake recipe from last week and simply reduced the amount of strawberries and added whole blueberries to the batter.  Then to make it have all the red, white and blue flair I used whipped cream, whole blueberries and strawberries to top it off.  The result is a festive, decadent, delight that we got to share with some friends the other night.  Here’s what I did: (…read more and get the recipe)

“These are the best cupcakes I’ve ever had!”  Those were the words of my beautiful wife after devouring one of these cupcakes I just whipped up.  That says a lot.  I really value her opinion when I cook but I have to say these little delights are SO GOOD! (…read more and get the recipe)

Lemon Coriander Cookies

June 23rd, 2008

 Lemon Coriander Cookies

Elise and Garrett posted a recipe for making Orange Poppy Seed Cookies and I thought they sounded good and was about to make them when I read the end of the post.  Garrett mentioned that a “novel option” was to switch out the poppy seeds for some ground coriander and replace the orange with lemon.  I did just that!  The result was a happy mouth.  They weren’t as “savory” as I thought they might be, but they were good nonetheless.
