Banana Walnut Cake - Nostalgic Kitchen

Banana Walnut Cake - Nostalgic Kitchen by Beki

I really like old cookbooks. I don't mean from 2000 or even 1980. My favorites are from around the 1900s and use terms like "teaspoonfulls" instead of just teaspoons. Since a lot of them are now public domain, you can even find them for free online! They are fun because of the recipes, too. I mean, at the time they didn't have the…

Gluten-free Shortbread Cookies

Gluten-free Shortbread Cookies by Beki

New experiment! I found a recipe here that looked worth trying, but couldn't resist tweaking it by adding in some almond butter. Since I was a little skeptical, I planned to make a 1/3 batch. In fact, I added the butter as if it were a 1/3 batch. And just realized that I only halved the rest of it... I should know better than to not…

Baba a l'orange - Or an easy, fancy-seeming French dessert

Baba a l'orange - Or an easy, fancy-seeming French dessert by Beki

Last week I was watching a French competition show, "Who will be the next great pastry chef." I *love* it, it's a Top Chef kind of set up, with 15 or so people competing to be a master chef. I forget what the prize is, they don't repeat it ten trillion times. I happen to like the French version better because each episode is 2.5…

However you want' em brownies!

However you want' em brownies! by Beki

I love the cocoa brownie recipe from Smitten Kitchen, most of all because it's so flexible. I've done loads of adjusting to this recipe for different reasons, but here's the way I made it tonight that has be excited again. The texture turned out pretty darn great - thick and fudgy - even though I used whey protein, which can make…

Chocolate Beet Brownies with extra protein!

Chocolate Beet Brownies with extra protein! by Beki

Since I mostly put these up for me (notice there aren't any ads?) and I'm spending way too much time in front of a computer lately, I figured that I will put things up without pretty writing around it.Goal: Treats that are food, not sugar and empty calories. More 'real' food and protein here.Ingredients to use: Beets and…

Quick Vegan Lentil TVP bolognese

Quick Vegan Lentil TVP bolognese by Beki

I am a fan of both lentils and TVP to sub for ground beef. But either can get boring. Lentils have a nice texture, but... I don't know, they just aren't quite right. And TVP doesn't have quite enough bite to it for me. Luckily Mr. More Calories brought me some TVP from home and it's probably enough to last me comfortably for the next…

Fried Apples

Fried Apples by Beki

After looking around the interwebs, it looks like the secret to these is typically bacon grease. And of course that is an ingredient that I will have less than no access to for the next four months. Even if it sounds pretty likely. So I went with what I could get - margarine. Not exciting, but you do what you can. I suppose I could…
