Cherry Clafoutis | Clafoutis de Cereza

Cherry clafoutis is one of my favorite summertime breakfasts. This traditional French pastry can be made with summer stone fruits; think apricot, plums, peaches, and of course, cherries.

It’s sweet, but not too much so, making it the perfect companion to a foamy latte and a warm summer morning.

Cookbook Review: “Sabores del Sudeste Asiático” by Christina Sunae

Reading is one of my favorite pastimes. And reading cookbooks, well, I like that even more. Long before I started cooking I read cookbooks.

Luckily, I’ve been blessed with a fantastic grandma. You see, my grandma is not a typical grandma. She is a cool grandma. She…

Salted Caramel Sauce Recipe

A few months ago, I tried my hand at making these amazing salty, chewy caramels from David Lebovitz. It was my first time making candy and even *gasp* using a candy themometer!
