Baking not writing

Welcome to my new blog!

I have noticed that instead of writing, which is what I am supposed to be doing, I can frequently be found in the kitchen, baking.

Baking and cooking have been important creative outlets for me since I can remember. My sister got an Eazy-Bake Oven one year for Channukah and it might have started then! She wasn’t that interested in it, but I loved it — and loved the way the mixed up tiny biscuit-sized cakes tasted too.

Why don’t we bake more with light bulbs? That’s what I want to know!

But the real purpose of this blog is to share some of the recipes I have come up with. It drives my Mom crazy — I CAN follow a recipe (and have, of course, over the years) but I have been baking most of the basics for so long, I am always adding and tweaking to suit my own tastes. Some of my experiments have been failures, naturally, but many more of them have been incredibly delicious!

This is a place I can upload recipes and share what I have learned and it will also serve as an online recipe book for me and my friends!

    Your potato salad recipe please!

    • That’s easy — if you can get the potatoes the right texture. You parboil the potatoes and cut them up bite-sized. While they are still hot, add Dijon mustard, Provencal spices, olive oil and stuff like cut up celery, peppers, and small chunks of very sharp cheddar cheese to taste. It’s basically Salade Nicoise without the tuna. I used to like to put in the ends of broccoli stalks for crunch.

    OK. Wish me luck! I’ve got the flourless Hungarian chocolate cake in the oven as I write. I have your delicious one from the other day as inspiration. Thanks for this fab recipe. I’ll let you know what happens. I’m excited. xx

    It was a huge success at the dinner party. It really is foolproof because I haven’t baked a cake in about 10 years. This is really amazing for the gluten intolerant like myself. Thank you!!!

  4. I’m so glad it was a hit! I love a recipe that looks super hard to execute but is actually easy, looks gorgeous and tastes fantastic too! It’s my goal to find and post as many of these as possible. I wonder if I could make my brownies with ground nuts instead of flour? Will try and get back to you!
