Citrus Pound Cake

April is a busy month at work. There are teen art competitions to jury, pop up exhibitions to hang and events to organize. Plus the usual deadlines and meetings. This all usually happens within a two week period. We’ve all been there. We all have busy lives, busy workdays and, ideally, relaxing weekends. But sometimes…

Strawberry Banana Bread

Starting today through the rest of August I’ll be on hiatus. My graduate program just ended, we’re in and out of town and the biggest news of all is…we’re moving! I got at job at the North Carolina Museum of Art and we’re hoping to find a place in Durham. I love this blog, but…

Strawberry Banana Bread

It’s hard taking photographs of quick breads because they all kind of look the same. I tried cutting pieces, placing the bread out on different counters in my house; then I even wrapped it in saran wrap and put a funky little bow on it — still nothing. You can put lipstick on a pig…

Cherry Yogurt Pound Cake

They don’t call it a pound cake for nothing, but don’t worry about the amount of butter while you’re eating it, just focus on that when you’re at the gym next time. With cherries still in season we might as well enjoy them as much as we can before we move to baked goods with…

Banana Bread

I love quick breads. Pumpkin. Zuchini. Ginger Peach Streusel. Morning Glory. They’re all delightful to eat anytime of day with juice or coffee or tea. If I could write a quick poem about quick breads I would…but at the moment, my mind isn’t moving so quickly. Ingredients 2 ripe bananas, mashed 1/2 cup butter, melted…

Pumpkin Bread

It’s the first day of fall! The trees that I walk by on the way to work haven’t turned colors yet, but the air is a little colder in the mornings and the humidity of summer is long gone. Let’s do a quick word association game with “fall”: scarves. hygge (Danish for ‘cozy’). boots. wool….

Ginger Peach Streusel

This is so good it would be a selfish act not to share it with all of you. Coming from the always reliable food blog, Coconut & Lime. The crunchy, sugary, streusel topping outside and the light, fluffy cake inside is the most delightful combination of fruity, summery flavors. Ingredients the cake 2 cups flour…
