Oven-toaster apple crumble with Pecans »

Oven-toaster apple crumble with Pecans

I have been craving  apple pie lately but I’m too lazy to bake, because it’s too hot these days and turning on the oven just makes the matter worst.  I’ve been buying pocket pies from McDonald’s but it’s deep-fried and they’re not  really healthy especially if consumed regularly. So, I thought of making apple crumble, […]

Don’t make too much if you don’t want that to happen- […]

Simple Steamed Bread Pudding

This bread pudding is not the kind that you serve with sauce or eat with a dessert spoon or fork;  it’s the kind that you just carry around and eat with your hands.  It  was made with just enough custard for the bread to absorb.  This is the bread pudding that I grew up with […]

Spaghetti and Meatballs

I often find happiness and contentment in a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs. It’s one of my favorite foods- the blend of tomatoes, cheese and meat, the aroma of it while it cooks is intoxicating for me. Crusty garlic bread on the side completes the meal..a glass of red wine would have been an ideal […]
