Substitute for Sugar When Tempering Eggs?
I haven’t had time to look at this yet. It’s also beyond my ken. I tried glycine, and glycerol, though my goal was to utilize them as sweeteners and humectants in baked goods. I didn’t like the flavor (vaguely metallic) or mouthfeel ( a slight slipperiness, for want of a better term) and ended up […]

EMPANADAS – Home Cooking Dish of the Month, September 2020
Thank you! I was actually supposed to make a fancy “E” cutout in the crust to make it prettier, but was too lazy… Anyway, the crust was lovely and very easy to work with. I usually do my crusts by hand (with all butter or all Crisco), just with a pastry blender, so using the […]

What are you baking these days? October 2020 edition!
Ooh, that’s a good idea. I had to buy a little packet of them, never would have thought of freezing them. I made the dough (2 batches) day before yesterday and yesterday made the 2 fillings. After tasting, I thought it wasn’t spicy enough (were my scotch bonnets smaller than most?) so minced and sauteed […]

I realise my comment is late but I hope it is informative to new readers as well. Borax is a mineral that our body needs. It is found richly in edible vegetations that grow in fertile soil.

Weekly Menu Planning – October 2020
Doesn’t affect the community I teach in right now. We just completed our first week of hybrid. The community, to my knowledge, is not in the red zone yet (next town over is and has been for some time). I think the parents in our town would collectively mutiny if we went red and had […]

Pumpkin Churros
These Pumpkin Churros are crispy on the outside and soft and delicious on the inside. Pumpkin puree is combined with a choux-like dough, piped and fried and then rolled in sugar and pumpkin pie spice.  I’ve had churros in all sorts of countries. From Peru to Spain and of course, Mexico, churros are delicious in […]

Just in time for Halloween… rabbit blood
Thanks, Melanie! The butcher at John Fazio Farms, upstate from NYC, did confirm that NYS does not allow butchers or stores to sell the blood of any wild animals–but would sell us live rabbits and wish us luck. I’m definitely not aiming to do my first slaughtering and butchering in such conditions and will now […]

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies
These Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies are like if chocolate chip cookies and banana bread combined. They are perfectly soft, nutty and deliciously banana-like. And they couldn’t be simpler to make. Is there anything better than a classic, perfect chocolate chip cookie? Barely. But this one comes super close to it, lemme tell you. It truly […]
