Sometimes when I have a sudden urge to bake, I use some shortcuts and tricks to use what I have already (since I can’t be bothered to the run to the co-op to buy any missing ingredients) or have no time or the patience to wait hours for a dough to chill/something to cool, etc. I also realized that when I post recipes here, I never let you know of some of the tricks and substitutions I learned along the way.

I am bored at work and what do I do?
I salivate over delicious looking food blogs…
This is one of my favorite food blogs. Delicious recipes and even more delicious food photography! Latest post on baking with persimmons, I think they are called kaka here? Makes me want to go to the co-op or Sultan after work and grab a few to try it!
*Update* Guess what I found in our fridge! Yup! kaka fruits! So I’ll be making this much sooner than I thought! Yay!
Excellent step-by-step recipes and cute animations! Her latest post is a recipe of a pumpkin pie. Now that autumn is here (well not really but let’s pretend) a pumpkin pie sounds mandatory!
I discovered this wonderful blog today. And I spent hours and hours on it ever since! She makes everything from salads to cakes to bread to roasts… This image of roasted tomatoes and onions reminds that I should definitely post simple recipes for pastas in the near future!
I will feature more food blogs as I discover them.
I started this blog thinking that it would force me to start baking and I did get excited. I had many, many ideas but now I feel like I’m back to my lazy self!
So please suggest ideas for me. Are there any recipes you would like me to try? A dish you tried somewhere and wish to recreate it?
Let me know! I’m open to anything!
In other news, I am excited about the long week off. I am looking forward to being a bum and making breakfast at the chalet….creamy scrambled eggs, pancakes, tea in the morning, Turkish coffee at noon and endless munching!
