Kerrygold Open-Faced Breakfast Toasts

Monday, January 5, 2015

2 Comments

I’m a sucker for a good breakfast. I love breakfast, and I also love to entertain guests. When I have overnight guests I like to make them a special breakfast. Now, if you know me, you know I like things that LOOK like they took a lot of effort, when in reality they are dead […]

Banoffee Pie … well, sort of and other musings

Tue, Nov 18, 2008

11/19/08 – I served the pie from the recipe below and it was quite tasty … and runny!  So, I would not fold in the whipped cream.  I would just sort of smooth out the toffee and spread it with great care.  But, the taste … spot on.  My family, once past the initial trepadation of a […]

I will admit this to you, dear cyber readers.  For the last few months I have been a TOTAL baking slacker.   Cooking slacker also. Really?  Oh, yes. But, the impending holidays have reignited my desire to bake and fiddle around in the kitchen.  Well, that and a trip to Ireland.  Yes, Ireland the country.   I […]

Not that I really went anywhere, but I have neglected my blog.  Sorry. So, you may well be wondering what I have been up to in my absence?  Well, I shall tell you. First, I finished my Laminated Dough class.  I really did not enjoy that class because my teacher was less than stellar.  And, […]

Apathy and Pastry

Thu, Feb 7, 2008

The last couple of days have been personally stressful and to be honest I have not felt like doing much of anything.  Got a mean case of the ‘Blahs’.  I’m feeling slightly more motivated today.  Hopefully this trend continues. I did want to post an update on the reversed puff pastry I began last week […]

Forgotten Bundt Cake

Lovely lemon pound cake, forgotten on my dining room table!  Well, you weren’t eaten for the birthday for which you were baked, but you sure made a tasty breakfast!  It was quite lovely, lightly lemony and not too sweet.  I’m sure by the end of the day most of it will be eaten.  That is how […]

Who doesn’t love a good muffin?  I know I do.  And the muffins pictured below are hard to resist.  Trust me!  I told you all about these muffins last week.  Here is a link to the blog entry that includes the recipe for these chocolaty lovelies.  You really should make them. I am so PLEASED […]

Reverse Puff Pastry and Party Dips

Fri, Feb 1, 2008

So, last night we made, or at least began making, reverse puff pastry. Unlike regular puff pastry where butter is enclosed in dough, reverse puff pastry encloses dough in butter.  As the name implies it is reverse of the regular way.  Oddly enough it worked quite well though the first three turns (I have two […]

Apple Tart!

   This is something I sort of threw together for dinner Sunday.  I say ‘sort of’ because you can’t just throw puff pastry together, but I already had that ready from the night before.  I just layered thin sliced apples with cinnamon and sugar on the pastry, baked it, and like magic it’s dessert! There […]

Wedding Cake and Mutant Meatloaf

This post is more just random thoughts for today.  As you can tell I am feeling rather scattered.  Everyone has days like this.  Right?  Next month I am making a wedding cake for a family friend.  It will not be dissimilar to one I did in October for the brother of my best friend.  She asked […]

Tales of Puff Pastry and a Fish Fry

This weekend I made puff pastry.  Yes, I know, I made it at school so big whoop … but just wait. First, I have not made puff at home in at least a year.  Maybe longer.  I have made blitz puff pastry, a sort of extra flaky pie dough, many times but not regular puff. Second, the […]
