One Pan Pork Chops and Sausages with Apples

I’ve been a truant recently. I sincerely apologize to you for taking off and not updating my blog for a month even though I sorta promised to do a weekly post when I first started this blog. As a way of saying sorry, let me present to you this easy and …

July Bakealong Challenge: Blueberry Hand Pies

Ok, I know it’s not July but lately my motto has been ‘better late than never’. So, in the middle of September, let me introduce to you July’s Bakealong challenge: Blueberry Hand Pies! This is one of the challenges that I did many times over but not because I wanted to …

August Bakealong Challenge: Golden Foccacia

Yes! I’m alive! And back with August’s Bakealong Challenge: Golden Foccacia. Ok, first off, I’d like to apologize for not posting anything for some time now. I’ve been busy (again) with work and kinda fell off the inspiration wagon along the way. I’ve been active in Instagram though, so you can …

May Bakealong Challenge: Berry Blitz Torte

Spring Challenge: Creamy Black Eyed Peas and Alfalfa Soup

I wish I could say that I love spring but I honestly can’t. There’s no spring where I live, you see, and the closest to seasons that we have are pre- and post-Christmas (just kidding, they’re wet and dry seasons). Kidding aside, I do appreciate the Black Eyed Peas (band) and …

March Bakealong Challenge: Butterflake Herb Loaf

I’ve been meaning to join the King Arthur Flour Bakealong Challenge since the beginning of the year but unfortunately my schedule (and my laziness) prevented me from joining in until this month.  But by dint of sheer persistence (aka giving pep talks to myself), I managed to bake this month’s bakealong …
