Rosemary Lemon Poundcake

June 15, 2010
Rosemary Lemon Poundcake

We recently received a huge bouquet of fresh rosemary in our CSA box.  I put some of it little vases with water- rosemary will stay looking fresh for awhile if you just keep adding water.  I wanted to cook something different with it, aside from a typical chicken or pasta dish, so I made...

Poppy Seed Muffins

After pulling these muffins out of the oven, I left them on the counter to cool awhile and went downstairs to clean the bathroom for the third time this week (oh, the joys of living with boys).  While I was scouring, I heard Hayden declare, “I want a snack.”  I shouted up to Scott...

Holiday Recipes: Spiced Sweet Potato Cake

Wintery weather returned to Los Angeles today, bringing cloudy skies and chilly air.  This moist bundt cake was the perfect afternoon treat on a day spent inside.  Hayden and Scott both gobbled it up and asked for more.  The sweet potatoes (or yams, to be correct) really add nutritional value to this cake! 2...

Saturday Morning Pancakes

Raspberry Almond Muffins

March 1, 2010
Raspberry Almond Muffins

Hayden thinks muffins are cake, which is fine by me!  These muffins are moist, light, and perfectly sweet.  The fresh berries and whole wheat flour justify going back for seconds, or having them with coffee for breakfast. 1 small carton raspberries 1 1/2 cups unbleached flour 1/2 cup whole wheat flour 2 tsp baking...

Banana Cake

January 20, 2010
Banana Cake

This was the cake I made for my son’s 2nd birthday party.  And again for his 3rd.   He and our adult guests flipped over it.   With the whole wheat flour and bananas, you don’t need to feel so guilty about serving something sweet.  It is fantastic with or without the frosting. 1...
