Coconut Almond Scones

This was originally a recipe for coconut scones with optional chocolate chips, but guess who didn't have coconut milk or coconut flavoring in their house? But thankfully, I had both almond milk and almond extract, the flavors of which make the closest thing to ambrosia I've ever tasted. (That would be marzipan, but these scones…

No-Bake Chocolate Haystacks

You like chocolate? Coconut? Peanut butter?? You're in luck. Look what I've got for you: You don't have to bake these little delights, so they're super easy, and yummy whether hot or cold. Also for those observing Passover this week, they're unleavened!! 😀 An alternative to endless matzah brickle (my Jewish people say "Baruch Hashem!").…

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

So, I'm more of a cookie baker than anything else. Cookies are my buzz. Also, since my "pastry" posts are more popular than my "poetry" posts, you may be seeing more recipes than poems in the future. (But never fear, fellow poets! I plan on putting a poem up tomorrow) Let me know in the…

Black Bean Brownies Recipe

I know I haven't posted anything in a while. I offer no explanation or defense. I made these on a snowy day. I pulled them hot out of the oven, and ran upstairs for my camera. When I came back down, they were already half-gone. (Or half-there, if you see the glass that way) Anyway,…

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…

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…
