Pinterest Review: Easy Crusty No-Knead Bread

Pinterest Review Easy Crusty No-Knead Bread

Let’s talk about bread. I love bread and pasta and carbs in general and never joined the no-carb diet bandwagon because of my love affair with carbs. Unfortunately for me, I could not eat store-bought bread in the US, with very rare exceptions, because of a severe allergy to soy. This was a huge blow to me in college when I discovered the allergy and couldn’t eat store-bought bread anymore. I wanted to eat bread, Continue Reading →

Dairy-Free Sugar Cookies

Dairy-Free Sugar Cookies

I’ve mentioned before how my husband and I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day, but that I love all the themed food. I’m that way with pretty much any holiday or event where you can create themed food. So in honor of Valentine’s day, I’ve made these dairy-free sugar cookies which I adapted from my favorite sugar cookie recipe of all time from Alton Brown. While they are very good with dairy, I wanted to try Continue Reading →

Parathas- An Indian Flatbread

Parathas

As I’ve mentioned before, we eat quite a lot of Indian food in our house. I’ve only recently started making some of the Indian flatbreads because I don’t have a tandoori oven and sometimes the recipes seemed a bit intimidating.

Its pretty easy and its a great use for all Continue Reading →

Coca-Cola Cake

Coca-Cola Cake

I was first introduced to a Coca-Cola cake in the south at an amazing and award-winning Charleston, SC restaurant called Jestine’s Kitchen. Unfortunately, they don’t have a website (just google them or look them up on yelp), but they’re amazing and you should definitely stop by if you’re in Charleston. Unfortunately, there will probably be a wait and they don’t take reservations, but the line will move pretty quickly. So, back to Coca-Cola cake. After Continue Reading →

Not Too Sweet Chocolate Souffle

Who doesn’t love chocolate, especially in the form of a soufflé? I love this recipe for chocolate soufflé because it has a nice melty chocolate center and it isn’t too sweet. Serves 6 Total Prep Time: About 50 minutes Inactive Prep Time: 20 minutes Ingredients: 1 cup/250 ml whole milk (I use skim milk because that’s what I usually have in the fridge and it turns out just fine) 1/3 cup/35 g unsweetened cocoa powder Continue Reading →
