So I’ve always wanted to try poached pears, they always make them look like such an amazing treat on TV cooking programs so when I spotted red skinned pears at our local fruits and vegetable store I couldn’t let the opportunity slide by. I picked up 5 yummy looking pears and went on a search for a recipe.

There are many recipes online for mug cakes but I’ve always been skeptical about making one, even tho some of them looked so delicious. In my book things need to be warmed up in a microwave and it’s used to pop popcorn, not to cook and bake in. Something about those wavy things going on inside a microwaves just scare me a bit. I’m a traditional oven and stove top home cook and damn proud of it! Mug Cake with a Dutch twist.

I am finally getting around to posting my banana bread recipe that I promised weeks ago, but I am apologizing in advance for the pictures, the boys where in such a food rush that they just couldn’t wait for me to do my photo shoot before digging into the bread and I ended up telling them to just take pictures before they devoured the entire loaf, yes people this bread is so good it doesn’t last really long. Banana Bread Ingredients: 125 ml baking Margarine 250 ml Sugar 15 ml Oil 2 Eggs 500 ml Cake Flour Pinch of Salt 2.5…View Post
