Miniature Lemon Bun Sandwiches Recipe

First off, I want to say that this recipe appears to be simple, but if you're underprepared, as I was, it can be menacing. These delicious things... got the better of me. (Flashback to me scrambling in kitchen, screaming for more cardamom, stacking towers of dirty dishes, tripping on cat, and accidentally nuking North Korea)…

Pumpkin Pie Recipe

"What," you may well ask, "sets this pumpkin pie recipe apart from any dozen of other pumpkin pie recipes I could find on the Internet?" That is a good question. Let me consider it.   Okay, here we go. First of all, this pie is spicy -- I crammed as much pumpkin and cinnamon into…

Super-rich Chocolate Muffins Recipe

Let me digress for a moment, and summarize my love for chocolate... The darker, the better, generally speaking. 85% cacao is my favourite. I love chocolate anything - muffins, cake, brownies, cookies, candy, crickets, coffee, caramel... okay, now I'm just listing foods that begin with C. (Actually, the chocolate crickets weren't that great) Anyway, my…

Banana Bread Recipe (No Sugar Added)

I am all about using as little oil, fat, and sugar in things as possible. That said, I LOVE eating sweets. Therein doth my creativity utilize itself. I cut back on a lot of the sugar and oil in my standard banana bread recipe by subbing in more bananas and yoghurt. If you aren't used…

Movie Theater Cookies

I figured another recipe was due, after all those poems. Not that the poems were bad - in fact, I'm rather proud of them, clearly. Nonetheless, in order to keep up the name Poetry and Pastry, I should share a recipe or two. The cookies are called Movie Theaters because they include the two best things at…

My Emotion has Finally Found the Words (Poem)

Hey, all. The title is based off a Robert Frost quote, something like "Poetry is when an emotion has found a thought, and a thought has found the words." (Or something like that.) This poem is about me turning emotions into rhymes. Enjoy! Despair makes a poet out of me. Tears rinse out my lyrical…

Rasp/Strawberry Chocolate Coconut Bars

  Hey, guys! Sorry I've been MIA for a while, but I've been procrastinating. (What else is new?) Anyway, I ate this thing almost all by myself. It was an experiment, and a very successful one, if I do say so myself (which I do.) ;D Coconut Ingredients: 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut 1 carton…

Soft Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

Personally, I prefer soft cookies that fall when you bite them, as opposed to the crunchy kind that break off. Hence, these cookies may be too pillowy for some, because I'll admit they tend to disintegrate if you throw them around. That said, they're delicious, and probably better for you than a lot of other…

Cuppa-Cuppa-Cuppa Cobbler

I got this recipe from my Granma. Don't you love the name? It sounds like a creature from a Nintendo Mario game, or something. This recipe is super-easy, and super-packed with buttery and sugary goodness, but if you want some variations, I listed those, too, below. Pretty easy, and quick, and tasty. Good for kids…

Redwall Spiced Tea Bread Recipe

Okay, guys, this recipe isn't an original one that I created through trial and error. Instead, it's one of a collection of delicious and amazing recipes in Brian Jacques' Redwall Cookbook. If anyone out there has read the series and likes cooking, I recommend at least checking to see if your library has this book,…
