Norwegian Fattigman - A Baker's Odyssey Challenge #48
A fried pastry is always good! Many traditional cuisines fry pastry for special occasions. In the Italian tradition the fried thin pastry goes by many names crostoli, cenci, galani, sfrappole, bugie, stracci... the list seems endless. In Australia for some ...

Italian Anise-Orange Cookies - A Baker's Odyssey Challenge #44
Colourful sprinkles attract children like bees to honey.  I had made these cookies for the biscuit platter for a family gathering. I added a little liqueur in the icing instead of the orange juice asked for in the original recipe not thinking how attractive...

Cheese and Bacon Twist Bread with Smoked Paprika
Bread is the staple of life, some say. I have always loved bread. Bread was always on the table in my childhood and  I loved it all. Crunchy Italian breadsticks. The Italian Vienna loaf with it's thick crusty exterior and tender and open crumb. The Australi...

Swedish Jam Strips - A Baker's Odyssey Challenge #47
Homemade jam drops were synonymous with school lunches when I was growing up. Everyone's mum made them. Those were the days when lunch boxes were packed with sandwiches, homemade cake or biscuits and a piece of fruit. Peer into a lunch box today and you'll ...

Pfeffernüsse Cookies - A Baker's Odyssey Challenge #43
How many cookbooks do you own? Can you count them? Do you want to? I don't even want to count the amount of cookbooks I own. I am mad for cookbooks! I can't resist them! I am probably a cookbook addict, I would say. As much as I love to buy, read and own co...

Scottish Shortbread - A Baker's Odyssey Challenge #42
I can never resist a good homemade biscuit. The Australian biscuit and the American cookie are almost one and the same. I have been lead to believe that the American cookie is maybe a little softer than the crunchy Australian biscuit but I may be wrong ther...

I live in tropical North Queensland, Australia.
Introduction
From a traditional Italian family I have been cooking, baking and creating all my life. At the moment I am blogging my way through a wonderful cook book "A Baker's Odyssey" by Greg Patent. You can follow me as I take the journey on this cooking adventure. Oh, I will share  some of my favourite recipes, too!
