Focaccia & Pesto Buns

Remember the La Place tuna salad I did ‘a little’ while ago? Oh come on, it was like yesterday I posted it! Well, I made the focaccia buns to go with them and people have nagged me for the recipe ever since, so here they are! These buns are so good. The bread is soft and fluffy, yet still dense enough to stand up to the tuna and all its…

Gruyère & Black Pepper Popovers

Sorry Dutchies, but this is yet another recipe that, like my Key Lime Cheesecake Pie, you won’t be able to recreate one-on-one because, well… good luck with finding a popover pan here. Let me save you some time; it ain’t gonna happen. Mine was sent to me by Ellen. I think of popovers as the American answer to Yorkshire pudding, albeit a tad smaller. The batter is pretty much the…

Garlic Parsley Naan

I found this recipe in my now forever favourite edition of the Dutch Delicious magazine; the Asia update. It’s a brilliant recipe. It just works, people!

Cheating a bit even…

Take my Bread Away!

This fantastic bread recipe came with the Electrolux Magic Mill I got from my sister so I really can’t take credit for it. Bummer. I always like to be the inventor of recipes like these. But then again; I also wish I would’ve thought of Harry Potter before J.K Rowling did. Back to the bread. It’s a cheesy, mildly sweet, amazingly fluffy and incredibly flavorful bread that is real easy…

Tex-Mex Biscuits

This isn’t even a real recipe, it’s more like me going stark raving bonkers in the kitchen. Nothing new there, I know. Not even sure why I named it Tex-Mex. It seemed like the right thing to do. Here’s what happened: I was cleaning out my kitchen cabinets—for the sake of it, let’s pretend I do this more than twice a year—when I ran into an old Bisquick box that…
