Duck & Cherry Pastries

Duck Cherry Pastries

A rich cherry sauce is one of the loveliest matches for a crisp roasted duck, which is why duck and cherries make the perfect filling for these buttery, flaky pastries. Not healthy by any means but totally worth the splurge!

Baked Vegan French Toast

Baked French Toast

We're all over this quick, simple and delicious French toast!

The baker says: "Don't bother standing over the stove, trying to get your soy mixture to fry up the same way eggs do: just pop this in the oven or broiler and in a few minutes you'll have crispy, golden french toast for you and all your friends."

Amen to that.

Spelt Olive Oil Cake with Chocolate Chunks

Spelt Olive Oil Cake with Chocolate Chunks

Maybe it's my Mediterranean roots, or maybe it's the chocolate-loving healthy baker in me, but when I came across this cake, I was intrigued. When I learned that there was rosemary in it too, my taste-buds did a somersault and convinced my to keep reading. When I read about how utterly delicious it is, and how easy it is to make, I bookmarked it for later if you know what I mean. ;)

Lebanese Meat Pies (Sambousek)

I love middle eastern cuisine, and I adore Cherine of Chicho's Kitchen for sharing some of the best fare of the region in English and French.

These savory little meat pies are made with beef or lamb, pine nuts, and a touch of spice. Perfect for a casual family Sunday lunch, or as a snack to-go.

"Pouding chômeur is a traditional sponge cake recipe from Québec served with maple syrup! A true delight!"

Delightful indeed! I even brought maple syrup all the way down to Mexico from Canada because it truly is one of the tastiest substances on Earth.
