Sourdough Scones with Coconut and Chocolate

Sourdough Chocolate Coconut Scones

  Are you beginning to see a pattern in some of my recent recipes?  Sourdough rules in my kitchen lately.  All that trouble I had getting it established.  Now it’s doing so well I can’t seem to hurt it–not that I’m trying to–even after sitting on the counter all day waiting to be fed, after it’s […]

Sourdough Spelt English Muffins

Sourdough Spelt English Muffins

  Last year at around this time a family friend generously gifted to me a sourdough starter with a California Gold Rush pedigree.  He had maintained his starter for decades and, understanding what a treasure it was to have my own to take care of, I was thrilled by his gift.  Unfortunately, for a few […]

Cinnamon Raisin Streusel Muffins

Cinnamon Raisin Muffins

  One of my favorite segments in the America’s Test Kitchen show (ATK) is the taste test.  This is where Chris Kimball samples a particular item from several brands/sources (before selecting his favorite) while Jack Bishop shares background details and/or group tasting results.  Over the years, I’ve learned to trust their call on a lot […]

Ham, Cheese and Chive (Spelt) Scones

Ham, Cheese and Chive (Whole Grain) Scones

  Do you ever have one of those weeks that stand out as good eating weeks?  Last weekend was one of those for me.  Between meeting friends for dinner and spending time with my family I feasted for two days.  Actually, I’m still feasting from a care package that my parents sent home with me, […]

Pumpkin Bran Muffins

  I don’t know about you but getting up on Monday morning is not my favorite part of the week.  Sometimes, long after my early-riser of a husband has gotten up and fixed his breakfast, I find myself still negotiating with the clock for yet another ten minutes.   Finally, 6:30 comes…then 7:00 and I […]

Persimmon Scones

Persimmon Scones @lemonsanchovies

  Without intending it, it seems I’ve embarked on a mission to find the perfect scone recipe in the last few weeks.  I’ve shared a few here that I’m very happy with (here, here, here and here) but I think it never hurts to find a new favorite, right?  On a recent weekend stay in […]

Benoîtons with Chocolate Chips

Benoitons with Chocolate Chips (French Rye Rolls)

  On the day of our departure from France my husband and I rose early.  Already on “home” mode, we packed the night before and, after a light breakfast, went about tidying up the apartment we rented during the last half of our vacation (more on this in an upcoming post).  It had been a […]

Banana Bran Muffins

Banana Bran Muffins | Lemons & Anchovies Blog

  My blogging software came under attack, keeping me from publishing new posts with you.  For the time being all seems to be under control and I’m happy to be able to share these muffins, though a few days later than I had planned.  They came about out of a need to use some overripe […]
