Pavlova - A Heavenly Cloud
A Pavlova Cake - yes, there is such a thing.   I decided I was going to conquer my hesitancy in making meringue.    So what do I choose - A berry meringue staked cake.  Yup.  Go big or go home. I did do several days of research to figure out what exactly I ...

Milk Bar Birthday Cake - a keeper for sure
I had read countless bloggers posts and re-writes of The Milk Bar's Birthday Cake recipe.   Critiques run from being fabulous to overly complicated for the home cook.   But no one has questioned how cook the cake actually is.   I have been string at this re...

Today was a savory bake day. Recipe development is really fun, but actually exhausting. We tweaked a savory scone recipe. I wanted to represent Wisconsin in a savory bite. Thus was born the Bacon, Cheddar, Onion Beer Scone. The bacon is an applewood smoked bacon from Nuke's out of Wittenberg, Wisconsin. The cheese is a Smoked Applewood Certified Wisconsin Cheddar from Red Apple and the Beer was Totally Naked from the New Glarus Brewing Company and even the butter was an Amish hand rolled butter from the Driftless region. My goal is to find a locally milled flour, so for this recipe I used my tried and true King Arthur All-Purpose Flour. I even made a maple butter out of Wisconsin Maple Syrup and local butter.

I tried both baking in a cast iron scone pan and on a baking sheet lined with a silicone pastry mat. Both had their benefits, but I think what we decided was that the free-formed circle on the baking mat actually was the better technique and will deliver an almost perfect scone.

Taste testers loved the scone and I think we landed on a great recipe. Now, we are going to practice, practice, practice.

Next week, Ill try a savory bake again - A smoked salmon and asparagus quiche and then well pick the best one to go with!

Chickpea, Feta and Cilantro Salad
Chick Pea and Cilantro Salad I had visited a friend who had made a chick pea and parsley salad, which was surprisingly tasty for me.  I love chick peas (garbanzo beans), whether they are in a salad or whizzed into a creamy hummus. I am also a lover of cilan...
