So you’re cooped up at home and going crazy baking all your favourite things? Just like you, I have been baking rather more than usual – therapy? boredom? Or am I merely living my best life now that I actually get to spend time at home? Perhaps just like you, I have also discovered sourdough […]
These healthy seedy muffins taste like cinnamon gum, but better.
Not too sweet, not quite savory. If you love blueberry muffins, this recipe will take you in a whole new direction.
Tonight I had a big pot of ham and lentils on the boil for dinner, which was healthy and used up some leftovers. It tasted good but it wasn’t good enough alone. So as it simmered, I asked my mother if she had a biscuit recipe… Jill: there is only one! on the back of the baking powder […]
I was up staying at “the homeplace,” as he calls it, for a while there when we just moved over to Ireland. The homeplace is a wonderful Irish way of talking about home.

There is a fence in my new neighborhood covered in blackberry vines. By now the blossoms there will never bear fruit. Oh England, imagine this: warm blackberries, picked from the bush by the side of the road with the sun beating down. This is kind of a west coast thing. Himalayan blackberries may not be […]
busy times call for… Banana Blueberry Muffins! Now I finally can claim a recipe on this blog as completely my own. Over the past few months I have been developing this muffin batter as a go-to basic- but this is a fabulous flavor combination and ‘ripe’ for further experimentation! 7 T butter 1/2 c. milk […]
