Blueberry Picking

Haven’t really gone anywhere since end of March other than to the grocery stores when necessary, we took the opportunity to visit a local farm to pick our own blueberries last weekend. ❤️

Sourdough Blueberry Bread

About a couple of weeks ago, a library patron (Barbara) and I had a brief discussion about sourdough starter. After I mentioned that I have been thinking of starting a batch, she generously offered a portion of hers! Here it is – it smells absolutely divine! Since then, I had fed it, gave a portion […]

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 […]

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 […]
