Adventures in Baking

Humor / Poetry

A "Found Poem"

Why bake?

Get your hands dirty

Enjoy the end result


I believe in sifting

A large balloon whisk is a staple

It’s a good idea to get to know your oven


Make sure to use the freshest butter possible

The best eggs, of course, would be from your own chicken

Start with the good stuff


You can freeze dough

Eggshells are magnetized

Until it’s done


Eat while they’re still warm!

Serve warm.

Serve warm with the honey butter or jam.


Crystallized ginger and fresh pitted cherries

What makes your bakery unique?

Re-create a Pop-Tart flavor you loved as a kid


Cream Cheese Frosting

Pinch of Kosher Salt

Raspberry Jam


1 large egg

1 tsp whole milk

1 tbsp granulated sugar


Makes two 9-inch pies

Makes about 4 dozen mini scones

Makes one 9-inch quiche


Cheesy Herb Popovers

Zucchini, Basil, and Fontina Quichelets

Bacon-And-Egg Breakfast Tarts


I really like gingerbread

You can cut the brandy in half if you want

Warning: This bread is highly addictive


What’s For Dinner Tonight?

Scrape about half of the batter into the prepared pan

Serve warm with lots of butter


Let cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.

Serve warm.

Cut into squares and serve while warm.


Anything Goes Pizza

Whoopie Pies With Salted Dulce De Leche

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies


Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, hands down.

My dad loves chocolate chip cookies.

Melt the butter and chocolate over low heat


The smells!

You can see the jam bubbling

Inside you’ll find a surprise lemon filling


Makes one 9-by-13-inch cake

Makes one 9-inch triple-layer cake

Makes 18 cupcakes


I was born the year the first Easy Bake oven came out

Fudge Frosting

Vanilla ice cream for serving (optional)


Someone brought a cake very similar to this to my birthday party

When life gives you a bounty of juicy summer fruit

I love the drama of an upside-down cake


Make a double batch of toffee sauce

Make peach ice cream

Make the glaze


So far, I’ve licked two bowls today

3/4 cup sugar

Makes one 16-by-12-inch tart


Blueberry-Almond Crisp

The Midnight Galette

Nectarine Lattice Pie


Impress your guests

In a large bowl, toss the apricots with sugar

Pass me another slice, please!


Position a rack in the middle of the oven

I’d be personally devastated without chocolate

Bake the crust until lightly golden brown


Garnish with chocolate shavings, if you like.

Then bake as directed.

Let cool.


For the caramelized blood oranges

Serve with dollops of whipped cream

You can’t rush yeasted dough or toddlers.


Remove the vanilla pod.

Bake the pudding for 30 minutes.

The mixture will still be a little soupy


Ricotta Cheesecake with Strawberry Sauce

Makes 4 servings

Custards are delicate


Baker’s Note

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing.

Rebeccaseal: This was an almost perfect story that I would recommend to anyone. The only thing I would work on is painting a more realistic picture of Haiathiel.

Roxie: This was a very well thought out story and I greatly enjoyed it! I don't usually go for these kinds of stories because of clichés and what not, nut this was great.

ianwatson: The comedy is original and genuinely funny, I have laughed out loud many times reading this book. But the story and the plot are also really engaging.

Tavis Ryan King: "What Happened to Charlie Carmine" is a fabulous mo-gee-toe cocktail fuelled midget orgy of psychology, fantasy and sarcasm. I laughed out loud when reading this novel so many times it made the London commuters I shared space with look at me with curious disdain - and I did not care. [Rating: 4....
