Blueberry Sour Cream Cake

Blueberry Sour Cream Cake

  My husband and I stole away to Santa Fe, New Mexico last week for a few days.  Since retiring at the beginning of the year we have talked about several little getaways we’d planned to take but none of them ever progressed beyond this stage.  Family obligations and tax season came and went; when we […]

Chocolate Caramel Blueberry Trifle

Chocolate Caramel Blueberry Trifle-3

  Though I generally lean towards simple, classic foods, putting a twist on an old favorite can be a treat for the taste buds, too.  I’ve shared quite a few recipes here that I’ve left my mark on by putting what some might consider an unusual spin or two–but mostly, they’ve been well received.  I’ve […]

Blueberry Quinoa Muffins

Blueberry Quinoa Muffins-5

  Still on a high after the success of my Apple-Pecan Quinoa Muffins I practically ran to the Whole Foods near my office at lunch the next day to pick up quinoa flour, rainbow quinoa (Per Patty’s suggestion) and other seeds, grains and flours that I was determined to start baking with.  It’s not that […]

Fresh Blueberry Mini Tarts

Key Lime Blueberry Ginger Tart (and a Giveaway!)

Key Lime Blueberry Tart-2

  Whew! The name is a mouthful but it belies how truly easy this tart was to make.  I spent the early part of the last weekend preparing for a much-anticipated dinner with a couple of blogger friends you might know (more on this in upcoming post) and by Sunday morning, I realized that I […]

Blueberry Sour Cream Cake

Blueberry Sour Cream Cake-2

  I think some blogs call this time of the week Wordless Wednesday.  As tempting as this idea may be after a long day like today, I can’t just give you a picture of this cake and leave it at that.  It was a surprise hit both at home and at the office.  The recipe […]

Buttermilk Panna Cotta with Blueberry Sauce

Buttermilk Panna Cotta-2

  I seem to be on a panna cotta kick lately.  I’ve noticed that chocolate desserts on restaurant menus have been taking second place over their milky counterparts.  I suspect it was a taste of my parents’ maja blanca recently that awakened my desire for some subtle, silky, milky flavor.  Maja blanca, a traditional filipino […]
