Pizza Margherita

  Tony and I have taken to watching Delicious TV lately. I love Toni Fiore, she’s like a vegetarian Carmella Soprano. We watched the pizza special the other day and couldn’t wait until the week end to make pizza margherita. Our Aerogarden supplied us...

Hello Kitty Microwave Cake

Sounds disgusting, right? Actually, it was OK. Like every other Japanese cake I’ve ever tasted it was spongy and not-so-sweet but alright. I picked this up at Mitsuwa Market this week end. They had banana and chocolate too but the strawberry box was the cutest....

Apple Oatmeal Crisp

Green apple Originally uploaded by Hugo Provoste My husband found this recipe online last night after realizing we had some green apples laying around that no one was eating. He’s always happy to eat whatever I bake, but rarely does he actually find the recipe...

Pretty in Pink (strawberry) Cupcakes

My local fruit market (Stanley’s) had super crazy time sales on organic strawberries again this week, so I picked up a bunch and set out to make delicious cupcakes for the little girl I nanny for (Lila, self-proclaimed “professional ballerina.”) I...

Raspberry Short(cup)cake

Raspberry Short(cup)cake Originally uploaded by CannibalCupcake This is a super duper easy one… provided you have access to cheap, fresh berries which I hope you do. Pints of raspberries were something silly like 75 cents at Stanley’s Market today so we...

Mmm…pancakes.

I know pancakes aren’t baked items. Unless you make baked pancakes. Mmm, those are good. Anyway, pancakes are griddling, but they have the word “cake” in them, therefore they’re going in this blog. Here’s a really simple recipe to make...

Tenoberry Muffins

I don’t usually post bad recipes unless it’s something that’s out there in public where someone else might bake it and be as disappointed as I was. (Like the chocolate chip cookie recipe on most bags of chocolate chips- these never turn out right, I...

F Easter Cupcakes

Witness my touching Easter story: somewhere around 2001 my mom made Easter baskets for all of us kids (even though my brother and sister were both teenagers and I’d been living in Chicago.) “Us kids” included my friend Phil, later to be better known...

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

More uses for old bananas! That’s right, I’ve limited Teno to one banana a day to save him pooping difficulties I’m sure he’d rather I never speak of on the Internet. So, to get rid of some of the guys who don’t get eaten in time I do a...

Mini Banana Muffins

 My kid loves bananas. We have to hide them or his crazy “I want banana” dances become destructive and sometimes violent. So I made some mini banana muffins for tomorrow’s breakfast. Here’s hoping they appease the beastie. This recipe has been...

Teno’s Blueberry Mini Muffins

 Today I had two of these on Teno’s high chair tray and as I was velcroing his bib on he snatched one up and shoved the whole thing in his mouth. Immediately, the giggling and bouncing told me he loved them. You will need: 2 cup flour 1/2 cup sugar 3 teaspoons...

Babycakes

altered from What to Expect in the First Year by Arlene Eisenberg I changed this recipe from What to Expect the First Year which I devoured while pregnant with Teno. (The book, not the cake.) The recipe makes a double-layered 9 inch cake but I made it into cupcakes...
