Easy Peasy Lasagna

I wasn’t supposed to post about this recipe. That is the reason why I do not have pictures of all the stages through the end outcome. To be honest with you, I thought that it wouldn’t be something worth mentioning about. But the final result came out so good; I had to post about it....

Old-Fashioned Chocolate Cake

Going back to my recipes I fell into this one. It really captured my attention, because it said old-fashioned. I did not know how old fashioned cake was in the States, so I thought I should give it a try, plus the fact that I have never made frosting in the past and I’ve seen...

Peach Sorbet

I am sure you all feel it now. Summer is here. And what blogger would I be, if I didn’t make something that goes along with this time of year. I found this sorbet recipe in King Arthur’s Baking Banter and I thought it would be a good idea to make it, since my son...

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

I always try to find recipes that aren’t too difficult, aren’t too much and do not need so much time to prepare them. I had couple of bananas that have seen better days, I am sure, and I wanted to do something with them. I unburied this recipe from my pile of recipes that occupies...

What is it that most afternoons we all want something sweet to eat? I guess some chemical reaction takes place in our body and we desperately need something sweet to eat. I am sure my fellow blogger Joanne from Eats Well with Others will be able to enlighten us, since apart from being a very...
