My 10 Top Baking Websites

My 10 Top Baking Websites

Those who know me, know that I love being in my kitchen. I especially enjoy experimenting with recipes, adapting recipes to suit my taste as well as those I cater to, and I also come up with my own recipes. Many of my friends and sometimes family often request for a recipe for something I have made that they love. Usually if it is a recipe of my own creation, I would tell them it’s a family secret. However, there are many websites I do visit on a regular basis for cooking or baking ideas.

Feel free to check them out: www.iheartnaptime.net www.flavorthemoments.com...

I adapted the recipe from PureWow and my changes I will add in bold in the recipe: Ingredients: 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 1 head...

It’s Asparagus Season

It’s Asparagus Season

I’ve known my hubby for 6 years. And I’ve learned that White Asparagus Season or “Spargelzeit” in German, is eagerly anticipated by many Germans, due to the fact that it usually is a sign of Spring. This season starts in April and can go on until 24th June. Now that we are living in Germany, I can confirm that the locals go “spargel-crazy” during this time. All restaurants add this delicate white vegetable to their menus and you will almost always find the best white Asparagus on the markets during the week. Now notice how I keep saying “white” asparagus – that is because this seems to be the only Asparagus worth the wait!!! And trust me, a kilo can cost anywhere between €4.50 and €15. And even though you can...
