Steamed Chocolate Christmas Pudding Recipe

June 29, 2016 | by Annie | sweets

Steamed pudding is more like a dense ultra moist cake, rather than the creamy pudding most Americans are accustomed to. This wonderful recipe is simple and meant to be served straight from the oven. Top each serving with cream or a favorite vanilla or rum sauce.

Scary Snowman Cake Recipe

June 27, 2016 | by Lisa | sweets

If you were looking for a cheery snowman cake, this one isn’t it. In Jo Nesbo’s The Snowman, the lovable frosty snowman takes on an eery quality. I used this quote as inspiration for the cake decorations: “the grin was not formed by the mouth, which was sewn up with coarse hemplike thread zigzagging in and out of the lips. The grin traversed the chin and arced up to the cheeks and was drawn with a line of black nails that could have only been hammered in.”

Easy Potato Latkes Recipe

July 6, 2014 | by Annie | vegetables, sides, bread

Latkes are a jewish potato pancake. In this recipe, a mix of grated and shredded potatoes gives these latkes a crunchy crust with a softer center. To avoid getting soggy latkes, be sure the oil is hot enough and do not crowd the pan.

Fiesta Flan Recipe

Start this wonderful fiesta flan very early in the day, or even the day before serving, so the flan has plenty of time to cool and settle, and the flavors time to meld.
