Fresh Cream Pound Cake

Ever since I’ve moved to a new country, just in case you happen to be following my Instagram page (@annaceta89), I’ve been trying to familiarize myself in this very unfamiliar territory with ingredients known by their local name at local stores. It’s confusing when the sugar you used in your daily cup of coffee is…

Cake Rusks

As a foodie and a home baker, there’s always a reason to read food blogs and read recipes and then eventually bake them. I particularly love when bloggers keep the recipes simple, practical and most importantly honest. One such blog of fauzia’s kitchen fun, http://www.fauziaskitchenfun.com Had me drooling in no time.

Festive Italian Butter Fingers

One of the fondest memories of my childhood christmas days is butter cookies. There was always a visiting uncle who brought us a box of the famous Danish butter cookies.

Chouquettes – French Sugar Puffs

Chocolate Chip Biscotti 

One of the most versatile biscuits to me are and have always been biscotti. Twice baked biscotti can contain just about any of your favorite filling ingredients and what’s better it’s healthy as it does not contain even a gram of butter . So these have clearly been a family favorite since forever.  Whether wheat…

Garlic Parmesan Rolls

So I’ll begin this post with a little fact about myself . I am a Cancerian – Leo cusp by birth and those who know me say I’m a Cancerian more than a Leo (except when I am raving mad ) I’ll be a tad honest with that.  Cancerians are warm souls and love to…
