I love recipes that feature a blend of spices. There is something about the smell and the combination of flavors that I simply can’t resist.
For the month of December, Andrea from 4pure took us on a trip to the Netherlands. She challenged us to take our taste buds on a joyride through the land of sugar and spice by baking three different types of Dutch sweet bread. I chose to make the lightest: peperkoek.
Peperkoek or Kruidkoek is a Dutch sweet quick bread made with a wonderful blend of warming spices like cloves, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Many recipes also feature succade (candied citrus peel) . Peperkoek is traditionally served at breakfast in Holland with a thick layer of butter on top, as a replacement for regular bread. However due to its sweet taste it is also served as a snack or packed in the kids’ lunch boxes
If you walk into any bakery in Amman in the morning, you will be enchanted by the smell […]
I am horribly terribly late in posting my daring cooks and bakers challenges 😦 I make the challenges in time for the reveal but finding the time to sit down and write the post has proven to be an elusive task.So for this week, I am trying to catch up on posting my challenges.
This month, the Daring Cooks challenged us to think inside the box – the icebox, that is! Audax taught us some really cool tips and tricks for stocking our freezers with prepare-ahead meals that can keep our taste buds satisfied even during the busiest of times.
This challenge could not have come at a better time, as we head back to school (I can’t believe how quickly this summer has slipped by) a bit of organization can be a life saver in those busy first few weeks.
In this post I will share a collection of my favorite freezer recipes that I usually prepare around the end of summer to help me ease back into the busy school routine.
