Recipe #74: Crispy Kale Pizza with Marinara Sauce

I’m continuing the final stretch of cooking with this kale pizza. I’ve never thought of putting kale on a pizza, but it works surprisingly well. Combining delicious cheese pizza with crispy kale chips, which are both good on their own, somehow taste better together. This pizza uses the same dough as the heirloom tomato pesto…

Recipe #64: Banana Nut Bread

Boy, do I love banana bread, especially when it has lots of chopped nuts. It is the perfect breakfast or snack. It’s also great to make it with overripe bananas because they’ll add so much sweetness, and you could probably cut down the amount of added sugar. These are also very nutritious because they contain…

Recipe #50: Banana-Coconut Pancakes

The last pancakes I made were recipe 27, the cinnamon oat pancakes (link here). Those were really fluffy and tasty. But I have to say that I liked these banana-coconut ones more. They were equally fluffy from all the baking powder in the recipe too. The flavour of the banana and coconut came through nicely…

Recipe #28: Easy Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

I don’t think I have ever made a carrot cake but after making this one, I will definitely be making it again. If you are looking for a beginner recipe, this is it. What makes it even better is the cream cheese frosting. Yum. It’s also one of those cakes that seems like it can’t…

Recipe #27: Fluffy Cinnamon Oat Pancakes

Pancakes, at least in my house, were usually reserved for the weekends. They were a special breakfast that deserved extra time and attention. But now that I’m older, I like making pancakes whatever day of the week. I even like having breakfast for dinner sometimes. I’ve definitely made my share of pancakes on my website,…

Recipe #4: Simple Honey Scones

I’ve made scones many times on this blog (see the collection here). They are such a great breakfast and so simple to make. These honey scones though, really deserve the word simple in their title. The recipe has 8 ingredients and only requires one mixing bowl. Aside from being quick to make, these scones are…

Apple-Cinnamon Scones

After yesterday’s delicious apple-cinnamon recipe, I wanted to make another one for the last recipe of apple week. But this time, I used those flavours in some breakfast scones. I really like making scones in general because they’re so versatile with whatever flavours you want to incorporate. For instance, I’ve made orange ginger scones, lemon…

Recipe #52: Whole Wheat Pumpkin Biscuits

If you’re noticing that I’ve done a few pumpkin recipes in the last little while, you are very observant (Recipe 46Β and Recipe #49). It’s only because I opened a big can of pumpkin and wanted to use it up before it went bad. It’s nice there are multiple pumpkin recipes in this cookbook. All this…
