Spitzbuben

by angelika on December 19, 2011

After almost two weeks away, my deepest apologies, I am back. After spilling a glass of water on my laptop, and actually hearing it sizzle (not good) I was forced to buy a shiny new computer. Luckily I had backed up, so once my new computer arrived I just plugged into my hard drive and an […]

Dulce de Leche Cupcakes

by angelika on November 30, 2011

Little Man turned 5 over Thanksgiving weekend. It’s kind of neat that his birthday always lands around a holiday which is a time for giving thanks, as what I am most thankful for is my family and he was the beginning of our family. As least the part which includes little people. We celebrate his […]

Pumpkin Pie Macarons

by angelika on October 5, 2011

It’s Autumn. My favorite of all the seasons. I said it last year, and I will say it again. Everything good happens in the fall. The apples were cleared from our orchard last weekend, picked up by a local company to become cider and pie. We are also having out first rain of the season. […]

Mr. Fabulous had a birthday. If you follow along on facebook, you may have noticed this birthday was several weeks ago already. Posting cakes is pretty time consuming, just like baking them. It’s taken me this long to get the time to actually set it all down. This cake, much like this post, is a […]

Apple Pie Bites

by angelika on September 13, 2011

It’s Plant Food Fabulous’s first anniversary! I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun this year has been for me, and how grateful I am for all of you who follow along and cook my food. A year ago I was wondering how I would make time for this project. I work full time […]

Balsamic Marinated Strawberries and Ice Cream

by angelika on August 25, 2011

The easiest dessert that knocks your socks off is Balsamic Marinated Strawberries. One of my all time favorite recipes is for shortcake with balsamic strawberries and lemon scented whipped cream. I have been testing several recipes a night, and I didn’t have time to bake shortcake, but thanks to a recent episode of Barefoot Contessa […]

Asian Pear Crumble

by angelika on August 15, 2011

There is no faster dessert than a crumble. Okay, maybe a cheese plate or fresh fruit, but when it comes to baked easy desserts, a crumble is definitely something you want in your repertoire. A crumble is as easy to make as mixing together butter, sugar and flour and sprinkling it atop some sliced fruit. When baked you are […]

Fresh Strawberry Cupcakes

by angelika on July 19, 2011

photo by Modern Heritage Photography and Design This is a bit of a cheat post, as I did not take any step-by-step pictures in the whole rush of birthday party madness. I did’t even take the photo of the cupcakes! Thankfully my good friend Ayrjia is an amazing photographer,  so I lucked out and got […]

Pink Rose Cake

by angelika on July 15, 2011

photo by Modern Heritage Photography It was baby girl’s birthday last week and this was her cake. It was so cute and girly, the perfect celebration of her 2nd year on this earth. Originally I wanted to cut the layers in half and have 8 layers, but I was afraid at the last minute I did […]

Blueberry Tart

by angelika on June 21, 2011

This is heaven on a plate. You may think I am exaggerating, but I am sincerely not. This could be my favorite dessert I have ever made. It is so fresh tasting, with whole blueberries popping in your mouth as you eat, busting with blueberry goodness. The pastry crust, a new recipe for me, is so light […]

Caramel Apple Galette

by angelika on May 18, 2011

A galette is the free spirited sister of the tart. Galettes are simple, rustic and forgiving. Perfect for someone who is just learning to make crust and wants a few practice runs before the dough needs to be perfectly rolled and fluted in a tart pan. You can fill these rustic tarts with sweet or […]

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

by angelika on April 17, 2011

Is there anything better than a chocolate chip cookie, warm and gooey, right out of the oven? A quick run to Target with Little Man allowed me to make a very exciting discovery. Target has the best prices on baking chocolate I have ever seen. Ever. We stocked up on Ghirardelli bars and threw a […]

Chocolate Macarons with Salted Vanilla Caramel

by angelika on February 21, 2011

I think we’ve had enough of healthy recipes for the time being. I had some friends come for the weekend, so of course I whipped up a batch of my most favorite little treat. I was going to go with my old standby of Pistachio Macarons with Lemon Curd, but when I put out feelers to […]

Cinnamon Dolce Macarons

by angelika on December 19, 2010

The Cinnamon Dolce Maracon was a little experiment of mine that turned out fabulously! After a night where Baby Girl slept fitfully, (damn teeth!), I found myself in the Starbucks drive through on my way to work, and I ordered a cinnamon dolce latte. As I drank it, and started to come to, I had the idea that […]

Chocolate Ganache Thumbprints

by angelika on December 18, 2010

Today we have another cookie favorite. These thumbprints taste a lot like a ganache covered brownie bites. I absolutely love them. They are so rich and decadent, and such a perfect bite sized treat. The vanilla honey ganache that fills them is an all time favorite. I use it in so many other recipes. In […]
