My Old-Fashioned Delicious Red Velvet Cake by Nathan Willow

It is said that the recipe was actually discovered by accident when some vinegar fell into the cake batter, reacted with the cocoa in the cake, and gave a deep red color. Since then, many variations of the red velvet cake recipe from scratch have come up, but the…

Gramma Lund's Limpa Bread

Gramma Lund's Limpa Bread by Amos Miller

I looked at every recipe for Swedish Limpa Bread on the C-E-S site. None of them are family recipes, although there is a rye bread recipe, it's…

Cheddar scalloped POTATO gratin simile DAUPHINOIS

Cheddar scalloped POTATO gratin simile DAUPHINOIS by Foodessa

Very high in flavour...very high on calorie reduction too! I’ve been trying desperately to replicate a 'Potato Dauphinois gratin'...The king of gratinées! After having made these scalloped potatoes...I think I’ve come darn close to realizing my simile version of this great dish. If I may...I'll call her the 'Queen' to her King…

Easy Cinnamon Apple Strudel

Easy Cinnamon Apple Strudel by Nancy Miyasaki

This is super simple and truly delicious. I made it for John's birthday dinner, since he loves cinnamon apple desserts with vanilla ice cream. It's light and flavorful without being too rich. We finished it all in one night between the six of us. Mmm!

Pão de Ló - Portuguese Sponge Cake

Pão de Ló - Portuguese Sponge Cake by Sofia Reino

I have always loved this recipe, especially when one is able to cook in in such a way that the middle part is still wet. I have always been afraid of making this recipe as I am not the best at baking. But amazingly enough it came out perfect and I am very proud of myself.

Italian Apricot Semolina Sunburst Bread

Italian Apricot Semolina Sunburst Bread by Bob Vincent

This bread is adapted from a recipe made at the California Culinary Academy at a "Weekends At The Academy" class that I took 17 years ago. This course was on Rustic Italian Breads. We made five different breads all of which are excellent. Sadly they no longer offer these classes for the home chef; they were great fun and an…

Ganache Chocolate Nutella by Amos Miller

Use this topping on any thing you wish to enhance with CHOCOLATE, from baked goods to ice cream. It will keep for a couple of days unrefrigerated - a couple of weeks in the cooler. Sprinkle some finely chopped nuts on top of the ganache, if you wish - even some crushed peppermint candy. Gran Marnier and Chambord are great…
