The first time I went to Paris, I may have driven my friends a little mad with my requests to stop at what felt like every shop that sold macarons. There were macarons in every color of the rainbow and so many delicious flavors available, it was impossible not to want to try them all! […]
One of this month’s recipe assignments for the Tuesdays with Dorie group from Dorie’s Cookies is for Strawberry Shortcake Cookies. It’s strawberry season, so it’s a great time to whip up a batch of these cookies. I’m happy to say that this is a very simple recipe that comes together very quickly.
I’m not the most creative person in the world, but I wanted to make something with my sphere molds aside from more mizu shingen mochi (water cakes). I ended up getting inspired by Pokemon; one of the most famous icons of Pokemon is the Pokeball. In the world of Pokemon, trainers will capture Pokemon with Pokeballs. […]
I can describe the Jammer Galette as a gigantic shortbread cookie with jam on top of it, covered with a layer of buttery streusel. This is another Tuesdays with Dorie assignment and the recipe for this is not very different from the cookie-sized Jammers (by Dorie) found on bon apetit.
The Victoria Sponge is a classic British tea-time cake that is said to have been a favorite of Queen Victoria. I have seen a version of the Victoria Sponge Cake that has two layers of sponge cake that sandwich fresh whipped cream and jam, and another that uses fresh fruits instead of jam. Some recipes use raspberries […]
Chocolate dipped strawberries are plentiful this time of year so I decided to mix things up just a little bit and make Strawberry Mousse in Chocolate Cups. This strawberry mousse is nice and light, and pairs very well with bittersweet chocolate (and a little bit of lemon whipped cream on top).
Mini Oreo Pavlovas make a great summer snack or dessert. It feels like you’re eating an extremely light Oreo cookie that is topped with a strawberry. Strawberries and Oreos match surprisingly well! This recipe is very easy to make and comes together very quickly.
I have made a strawberry sorbet and I also made a mango sorbet. Both were delicious, but I wanted to see what it would be like if I combined the two. It turns out that you get the sweet and tart flavor of strawberries, and the creamy texture, and a hint of mango. Like the […]
Strawberry sorbet is my favorite kind of sorbet. I’m glad that Serious Eats had a recipe posted, and even happier that it’s an easy and delicious recipe! This recipe only requires 4 ingredients, an ice cream maker, and a little bit of time.
Summer is approaching and there couldn’t be a more appropriate way to welcome the warm weather than [making and] ravaging some homemade ice cream! I recently purchased an ice cream maker attachment for my Kitchenaid stand mixer so I looked up “best ice cream recipe” and found something from The New York Times. I read […]
