The last time I made a semolina cake, I was dating a lovely guy from Turkey. We don’t get the chance to enjoy these often enough in the States and I hope this recipe will change that. Turmeric is also the spice of the moment.
What’s so awesome about this recipe is how easy it is to make. Grab a box of Pepperidge Farms Puff Pastry cups and you’re halfway done with the process. Next, mix together the delicious blackberry almond custard filling. These are so yummy!
Grab your pressure cooker and assemble your ingredients. I am crazy about citrus. And I specifically love lemons and limes. But, I think that people are more familiar with lemon based products. Give this lime curd a try for your next high tea.
I love the fact that one of the primary ingredients in this recipe is butter. These old fashioned sugar cookies are a classic cookie for a reason. These are a quick and easy cookie that everyone will enjoy.
Macarons vs. Macaroons, these two cookies are so tasty and are the cause of a lot of culinary confusion. This recipe is for the magically light and tasty macaron that the French are masters of creating.
Streusel toppings are so dang good and incredibly simple to make too. Don’t forget to thaw out your frozen raspberries if you’re baking these out of season and can’t get your hands on fresh ones.
