Spiced Apple Walnut French Toast

  Back home, the brisk chilliness of the house in the fall is that familiar feeling that welcomes me first thing on a weekend morning. It features all of the possibilities of a comforting and soul-warming breakfast, one that is at its most divinely delicious. Comforting sweet eats are the gifts that we wait patiently for…

12 Days of Baking Roundup, and The Blog’s New Face.

‘Twas 3 days after christmas. I’m pretty sure most of you are still trying to roll off the couch, and sober up from that infamous Christmas dinner. Over the past 2 weeks, I challenged myself to start a 12 Days of Baking series, where I tried to post a different dessert recipe every day for…

12 Days of Baking – Day 12: Cinnamon Roll Bites.

Can you spare a bit of time and patience? Home made monkey bread from scratch. Yes, there’s rising time involved, a lot of it. But the results are amazing.

However, with my Pinterest feed is rapidly filling up with Fall, pumpkin and the color orange, my sister continuously nagging about…

Autumn/Winter Baking Favorites; Part 1: Pumpkin Flavored Everything.

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” ― George Eliot Autumn has always been my favorite season. The time when everything is just letting out its final burst of beauty, as if it were nature’s grand finale. The change…

Cinnamon Buns and an Escape.

I’ve lived my whole life in the city. Born and raised in the middle of all the bustling and hustling of the busy streets. You learn to live your life in a rush, always needing to be on time while trying to avoid the suffocating traffic. Sometimes an escape is really needed. Somewhere you can…
