Coconut Cake

Old Time Cast Iron

I always celebrated Christmas at Mammie’s house. A great family gathering would be incomplete with out Mammie and Good-Daddy arguing a little over the table. Good-Daddy had a terrible habit of cleaning his false teeth at the dinner table. I always giggled when Good-Daddy would stink his tongue at her. Yes, a 60 year old man sticking it to his wife. That’s how we rolled.

Mammie had such a beautiful farm table decorated with wonderful dishes of food. When everyone was in the living room talking about politics or gossiping about people, I would be in the kitchen chowing down on the dumplings. Mammie never minded and giggled. I’m sure if she was me at the tender age of 7, she would have done the same thing. I felt it was important for me to taste each dumpling, just in case one was not made to quality standards.

Berry Blast Muffins

Miranda Intentionally

I wanted to really amp up my blueberry muffins. My Super Blueberry Muffin recipe is good, but I wanted to make it better. I still have frozen strawberries from my garden; so I puréed some and added it to the batter. Combine that with a strawberry jam center and you have muffins blasting with berry flavor!

I used Scottish oatmeal, but you can use whole rolled oats as well. If you’d prefer to leave out the whole wheat flour, just increase your all purpose amount by half a cup.

I did not measure the almonds I put in. I was given a bag of sliced almonds and I just grabbed two handfuls and threw them in. In the past I’ve gauged my handful to be about 1/4 cup, so my recipe guess of 1/2 cup chopped almond probably isn’t too off mark.

These muffins are amazing! They are a sweet…

Extra Crusty Buns (Birote Style)

My Slice of Mexico

In my previous post, I talked about my encounter with these buns called birotes, in Guadalajara, in the Mexican state of Jalisco, so this post is all about making a batch at home in Canada, far away from their place of origin.  As I mentioned, the “secret” of this bread is to prepare a batch of starter with yeast in it, and letting it ferment for a few hours.  This pre-fermented yeast mixture is called a poolish (from the French pouliche), used in French baked goods, such as baguettes, to obtain a richer flavour and a nice rising of the final dough.  The poolish or “mother dough”, called “pata” in Mexico (which literally translates to “leg” or “paw”) is then mixed into a batch of dough, which also contains some yeast.  Sprinkling with water before or during baking encourages the formation of a crispy exterior (some professional ovens have…
