Vanilla Chiffon Cake with Fruits and Cream Round 2

The reason why I tried making this cake so soon after my last effort is because I wasn’t entirely pleased with my prior attempt and alright, I admit that it is also partially because we wanted to eat the cake again, lol. Here is a list of things I am not too wild about with […]

Vanilla Chiffon Cake with Fruits and Cream

A few weeks ago, a reader inquired if she could use my chiffon cake as the base for the ever-popular Chinese bakery birthday cake, one that is typically filled with fresh or canned fruits and whipped cream. My initial thought had been that it should be possible but if we bake the cake in a […]

Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

We had fantastic weather on Saturday in northeast Ohio! I hope many of you who live in the area got to get out and soak up the much needed and appreciated sunshine. :) Now that winter is over, I’m definitely looking forward to more gorgeous days in the coming weeks (we are so deprived here […]

Summer Cake Delight

This cake was totally inspired by The Kitchn’s Easy Summer Cake with Fruit & Cream recipe. I mean, isn’t that cake absolutely gorgeous? I just love, love, love it! Of course, I had to make the cake, wouldn’t you? However, I decided to use a different cake recipe (from a cookbook I own), just because it’s […]

Braided Cream Cheese and Blueberry Bread

This is actually King Arthur Flour’s Braided Lemon Bread recipe but since I’m not using lemon curd in the filling, I decided to call it the above (longish) name. :) I guess it doesn’t really matter what it’s called because all you need to know is…it’s d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s! In fact, KAF should officially rename it Delicious […]

Cream Cheese and Blueberry Pound Cake

Where has our summer gone to? Not that I’m complaining weather-wise, since the cooler weather has allowed me to bake, bake, and bake. But at the same time, it feels so strange…it feels like we’re bypassing summer straight to fall. Not only that, school will be starting in another three weeks. Yikes! Breathe, Chris…breathe. :) […]

Blueberry Sauce and Lemon Pancakes

The next thing we made with our yummy blueberries is a family favorite – blueberry sauce! And here, we pair it with lemon pancakes, something equally delicious in their own right but when combined with the blueberry sauce, they are out of this world! Enjoy! Blueberry Sauce {lightly adapted from the Blueberry Sauce recipe in […]

Blueberry Muffins

Muffins are one of my favorite things to make. They are easy to put together, they are not finicky (mostly), and they bake up pretty and delicious in no time at all. So, that’s the first thing we made with our bountiful blueberries. Enjoy! {Lightly adapted from the Perfect Muffins recipe in the McCall’s Home-Baked […]

Picking Blueberries

Blueberry season is in full swing right now, and I managed to persuade Alex to go pick some with me yesterday. It was cloudy, breezy, and cool (another weird summer day) but just perfect for blueberry picking. :) {For the past several years, we have been picking blueberries at Voytko Farms in Auburn Township, Ohio.}

Blueberry Crumb Bars

Remember the blueberries we picked a little over a week ago? They are all gone! We ate them in salads, as ice cream toppings, and as snacks…yum! :D In addition, I decided to use some to make these decadent blueberry cookies. The filling was full of summery berry flavor with a hint of citrus (and surprisingly not too sweet), and was sandwiched between crumbly, buttery crusts…so […]
