I am coming back to blogging slowly but surely. It is hard not to have this as a daily discipline and then expect to jump in full force. I couldn't do it. I think, once I get a few days posted in a row, I will pick up the volume and hopefully fill you in on some wonderful dishes, I made over the holidays.
Something Sweet is the name of a recently published book by Miriam Pascal who has a blog, the Overtime Cook. I decided to use it for most of my holiday baking and it truly fit my needs. Miriam thinks like I do and prefers using oil to a less healthy margarine in many of her baked goods. The mousse, I made from the book, had no raw eggs, something I am diligent about not using.
The best part of the book for me was the recipes, Miriam chose to use. I wanted to make almost all of them and I have made a good start already. Some recipes, I baked were Peanut Butter and Banana Chocolate Chip Cake - a huge success with our guests, Snickerdoodle Bundt Cake, Fudgy Brownies, Pumpkin Crumb Cake, Pomegranate Cupcakes, Chocolate Chip Peanut Pie, Hot Gooey Caramel Pie, Egg Free Chocolate Mousse plus I made the Caramel Sauce and the Chocolate sauce, all which were top notch.
Do these make your mouth water? I was not disappointed with any of the recipes and I am planning to be baking more for this Shabbos. The dilemma, I have is which ones to choose.
I will be sharing a few of the recipes on this blog but this is a book, I think many of you would enjoy having in your homes. It is not fair to the author to reprint many recipes and as soon as I find out how many I am allowed to, I will share them with you.
My photos do not do justice to the recipes but here are a few baked delights we enjoyed.
