Orange Sweet Rolls

I've been dreaming of orange sweet rolls just about every week now. There's a bakery close to us called Shirley's, and they have amazing sweet rolls in variety of flavors: Cinnamon, orange, raspberry...

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Amish Friendship Bread

I received an Amish Friendship Bread started from a friend of mine. I hadn't made any for about a year and I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with it. I decided to mush it and feed it, as instructed, and once it was done and ready to be used I didn't feel like making any. So what do you do in that situation? You put it in the fridge, of course! Sure, the so-called instructions tell you NOT to put it in the fridge. It also states that 'only the Amish know how to create the "starter"'.

Yeah, right. That's why there are recipes for the starter on every single self-respecting recipe site.

They've cracked the Amish bread starter code!

These are a few of my favorite green things.

Limes, cilantro, avocados...

I really love basil too, but that is a story, and a recipe, for another time.

Laskiaispulla - Shrove Tuesday Pastry

Today is Shrove Tuesday. Or Fat Tuesday, if you'd like to call it that.

I like fat. It makes things taste good.
