Ladies and gentleman…I have a very important update in the culinary world of Bob.
I present REINE DE SABA i.e. my very FIRST time baking for the blog!
Going into the Julia Child 100 year celebration, I knew I wanted to be involved as a way to improve my cooking skills and repertoire. What I didn’t know, is that I would be improving my baking skills too! Naturally, the first week we receive a baking assignment, Carlene is out of town, leaving it in MY HANDS! Not one to back down from a challenge, I committed myself to this recipe and ended up with a successfully baked cake!

Here is a really easy and quick side dish that goes well with anything such as steaks, chicken, pork etc.

I’ve always wanted to try making biscotti and when I found this recipe for Chocolate Almond Biscotti I knew I had to try making it. Now, I’m not a coffee drinker myself – but I share a passionate romance with tea – but there are a few special coffee drinkers in my life that I wanted to share these biscotti’s with.
I made this delicious and crunchy Almond-Hazelnut Buttercrunch Toffee as part of my Christmas baking. As a per warning, do NOT store this brittle in a cold place like a garage where Dad’s are known to hang out, as you’ll go to decoratively wrap it and notice that a large piece of the brittle is missing…. yet “no one” has been snacking on it….
Today we have a special guest, the woman who made all of this possible…OUR MOTHER! Every year she makes this highly addictive, yet extremely simple Christmas treat known as “Crispix Mix”. Now the name doesn’t fairly represent how amazing this stuff is, but take a look at the pictures, try it yourself and believe me it is AMAZING!
