Pear and Cranberry Cobbler

This is a very simple cobbler I made to finish off my cranberries that I bought for Christmas. For this recipe I used Anjou pears and they are of medium big size. When it comes to fruitty desserts like this, there is no need for precise measurements as we do for cookies and cakes. So…

Cranberry Scones

It has been so long since I posted any recipe.  From now on, I will be posting regularly for my viewers.  Work, new jobs and other things kept me so busy that I never tried any recipe.  It has been the same old same cooking – what ever I have been cooking on a regular…

Tropical Fruit Crepes with Chocolate Drizzle

    I have never had or even heard of “crepes” when I was growing up.  After I came to US, with the internet and so many recipe websites, blogs and recipe books I started making dishes that are not native to my place.  Initially I was into pancakes but as time went by I…

Blueberry Orange Muffin

Blueberries are in season now and I I love them. I eat them as is, add them to salads and of course use them in a lot of baked goods.  If you search my website for blueberries, you will find a lot of recipes with them.  These blueberries are little gems packed full of vitamins and antioxidants….

Vegan Crepes with Grilled Pineapple and Orange Sauce

Fruit and Nut Marmalade Bread

With Christmas coming, I wanted to make something special and so flavorful for breakfast.  Orange marmalade gives this bread a touch of orange flavor and the orange peel gives a distinct taste in every bite.  Adding almonds makes it even better – a crunch taste with raisins that gives a fruity taste.  This can be…

Blueberry Banana Muffins

It is summer and any fruits that are bought from the store ripe very quickly.  I bought a bunch of bananas that were not ripe – the skin was literally green, but within 2 days they all ripped at the same time.  I was hoping it will stay for a few more days, but I…

Mixed Mushroom Pasta with Basil Olive Oil

Recently I have been making dishes that are vegan and this is one of those recipes I always wanted to make – pasta combined with almond milk.  I will be posting another recipe with vegan Alfredo sauce.  Since I didn’t have enough time, I made this dish very quick and simple.  The main ingredients that gives…

Pumpkin Crepes with Maple Drizzle

  Recently when I was shopping I found this “Almond Dream” brand Spiced Pumpkin Almond milk with Cinnamon.  I could not resist and bought a carton.  When I got home, all I want is to drink this immediately.  But for my amazement, it was a bit too thick (probably with almond puree).  But it really…
