Book Review: My New Roots by Sarah Britton

I have a fairly large, and getting bigger, collection of books dedicated to natural and vegetarian cooking. Before selecting this book, I did a bit of research into what it would add to my library: Sarah Britton is the lady behind My New Roots, a blog, recipe site, and now book dedicated to what she calls “all-inclusive” […]

Fiery Cinder Toffee (with Chocolate and Ginger Cupcakes)

Today I contemplated the purchase of some sparklers. A little bit of low key fireworks to celebrate the 5th. However, the only place in Santa Clara County that you can buy fireworks is in Gilroy….. So I decided to do a bit of alternative celebration by making some delicious cinder toffee. Fiery Cinder Toffee Recipe […]

Great British Bake Off Week 6: Mango, Coconut, Ginger, and Mint Tea Loaf

Can you tell I’m trying to use up some of the random ingredients from my cupboards? I have made regular tea loaf cake before, and it’s a much underrated baked good I think, so simple to put together, but of course requiring a bit of forward planning to soak your fruit overnight….and yeah, technically it isn’t […]
