Apple Cranberry Turn Overs

by angelika on February 18, 2013

I love puff pastry desserts, for the ease of making and the delicious flaky buttery flavors. These are mini apple pies, baked to golden crispness in a puff pasty pillow. The best part? You can hold it in your hand and walk away with it. No plate and fork required. We love these for a […]


Morning Glory Muffins

by angelika on January 24, 2013

We are big muffin eaters here. My kids just love muffins, they think they are special. So closely related to the cupcake as to be considered a treat. I love muffins because you can make up a batch in about 30 minutes, and stuff them with all kinds of great healthy ingredients. We also send muffins to […]


Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

by angelika on November 6, 2012

One upon a time, I ate these delicious muffins with my morning coffee. Muffins that only graced the pastry case in the fall. Then this horrible thing happened. Calorie counts were listed next to the foods in the pastry case, and my beloved muffins came it at just under 500 calories- so I never at […]


Apple Bread

by angelika on September 24, 2012

Fall baking has caught me in it’s tailwind. I smell the cool morning, see the leaves changing color, and yearn for my house to smell of cinnamon and apples. We have the last of the apples on our tress. Since we have so many varieties in the orchard, we have the treat of a longer apple picking […]


Asparagus Leek Quiche

by angelika on September 10, 2012

Asparagus Leek Quiche is loaded with flavor and gooey with gruyere cheese. I hosted a brunch last weekend, and I think this was everyone’s favorite dish. I’ve never made quiche before. Truthfully, I am not much of an egg person. I don’t mind them in baked goods, but I don’t care for the flavor of […]


Pineapple Coconut Muffins

by angelika on February 18, 2012

I’m still dreaming of the tropics. It seems a little rude of me, when we have had such a warm and sunny winter, but I still wish I could feel the tropical breeze, dive into the warm ocean and bask in the glow that the humidity kisses my skin with. I’ve been drinking a few rum […]


Whole Wheat Banana Muffins

by angelika on October 28, 2011

It was our turn for snack again, and Little Man wanted to bring muffins. He also insisted that we make full size muffins, instead of the standard minis we usually send to school. Next time I am going back to mini muffins. You get a lot more bang for your buck. I had to double […]


Blueberry Muffins

by angelika on June 11, 2011

Saturday morning means baking with my son, and today we made delicious and easy blueberry muffins. They are bursting with blueberry flavor, and have lots of whole grain flour. They come together in less than 10 minutes. Easy enough to make on a school day! I’ve tried a lot of blueberry muffin recipes in my […]


Fresh Strawberry Scones

by angelika on May 30, 2011

Little Man and I had another Saturday morning baking adventure. This week we made scones. We bought strawberries that were incredibly ripe and delicious at the local strawberry stand. Local stand you wonder? Yes! We have this wonderful farmer named Lao who sells the juiciest, freshest more flavorful strawberries you have ever tasted. He picks them […]

Sweet Potato Muffins

by angelika on May 28, 2011

Little Man and I like to spend our Saturday mornings baking something yummy. Last weekend we made these muffins. It is an adaptation of my pumpkin muffins, which is what he requested. We did not have any pumpkin on hand, but I did have some sweet potato. So sweet potato muffins were born. They are […]


Granola Bars

by angelika on April 9, 2011

Little Man and I made these granola bars yesterday, and boy were they good. I say were, as they only lasted the night! That’ll teach me to cut a recipe in half. These come together in a matter of minutes, and you can add in anything you have around. Super tasty, delicious chewy texture, and great […]


Blueberry Crumb Bars

by angelika on February 6, 2011

My husband took Little Man shopping yesterday, as they often do on a Saturday morning. They went and selected our groceries for the week, stopping at 3 different stores. Apparently Costco had these giant tubs (1.5lb)  of organic blueberries for $7. (as my men remember, meaning it could have been anything from $5-$10) Little Man […]


Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

by angelika on December 10, 2010

Is it too late for pumpkin? I don’t think so, it is a Thanksgiving sort of food, and we are not quite into winter yet, right?  Either way, I have several cans of pumpkin in my cabinet that were begging to be used. It was also our turn to bring snack to school in celebration […]


Sweet Potato Pancakes

by angelika on September 12, 2010

It’s a Sunday breakfast kind of day. You know the kind…When you wake up on a Sunday morning and the sun is shining but the air is crisp. You feel well rested (as well rested as can be expected with two small kids anyway), hungry, and just a wee bit motivated to make something decadent. […]
