White Chocolate Banana Bread

Saturday, September 21, 2013

Lon LOVES bananas and always wants bananas around. The problem is when you buy a bunch, the first one you eat is a little under-ripe, the next few are perfect, and then there’s always some over-ripe left. It would be so wonderful if they sold bananas in bunches with different stages of ripeness. Anyways, so…I’ve made a lot of banana bread over the years and tried tons of different recipes. This White Chocolate Banana Bread, which is a variation of one I posted over four years ago, is the one I always end up coming back to over and over again.

My Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

For as long as I’ve been baking, or cooking at all, I’ve been baking chocolate chip cookies. Isn’t it one of the first things kids learn to do in the kitchen? Warm chocolate chip cookies just minutes out of the oven have always been a favorite treat of mine. Even the simple original Nestle recipe on the back of a bag of chocolate chips hits the spot. That recipe got a lot of use in my college days and even when I moved on to using better chocolate and dark chocolate, I still used that basic recipe for years. Then I started trying tons of different chocolate chip cookie recipes, some fancy, some not, with and without nuts. I enjoyed them all, truly. Yet, I think I’ve found my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, as hard as that is to admit.

Better with Blueberry Biscuits

Monday, August 1, 2011

Scouring Reddit the other day, we saw a delicious-looking picture of some biscuits made by ‘kaldrazidrim’ using a recipe from “Williams-Sonoma Bread“.  As always, the comments are the best part of a Reddit post and in this case he decided to post the whole recipe. Without buttermilk in stock we decided to change the recipe and hopefully improve upon it.  Having not tasted the original we can’t honestly say this one is better (although it makes for a nice alliteration in the title); but we can say this one is damn good.

As you can see, these biscuits bake up nice and high, a picturesque way to start a Sunday morning. The wonderful layers split easily for a nice dab of butter, though they’re delicious just the way they are.  Though ‘blueberry’ may conjure tastes of dessert, these are savory biscuits.

Soy Beans, Snow Cabbage, & Tofu Skin Ribbons

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

People always talk about the weird cravings pregnant women have but what about the strange aversions. It’s so odd to suddenly be repulsed by your own favorite foods. I can’t believe that I’ll turn away a plate of slender crispy fries, a cup of smoky dark chocolate ice cream, or even a garlicky bowl of linguine with clams.  Like many others with morning sickness, I had a really hard time eating meat and fish in general. I still tried my best to eat some because I knew I needed the protein, iron, B6, and other good stuff. Oddly enough the one I hated the most was chicken, the one I would think was the lightest of the meats.

My sweet mom has been catering to me every day, asking me what I would like to eat, or more what I can stand eating. There is a tendency to just carb-load on plain breads, rice, and noodles so for some more nutrition, I asked for a vegetarian dish. This Shanghainese dish of Soy Beans, Snow Cabbage, and Tofu Skin Ribbons is light yet packed with protein.
