Noodle Goodness

Pasta comes in so many variations that it’s hard to choose… unless you make your own. Fresh noodles can be made with few ingredients, maybe 30 minutes of time but only 10 minutes of labour, even without fancy equipment; it took longer to write this up than it does to make. There are other recipes […]

Cinnamon-Cranberry Muffins

As much as I love home-made cranberry sauce, sometimes there is still some left a couple of days after “The Feast”. True, I used some in turkey sandwiches, some topping my breakfast oatmeal, and some stirred into yogurt for dessert.

This is based on an old recipe that has been my favorite for decades, and I keep coming back to it. Standard Muffins makes 12 medium muffins pre-heat […]

Quick breads (that is, non-yeast breads) are best eaten the same day, though I have been content with this version the next day. I love this with soups and stews and oven-hot snacking. The basic recipe […]
