My placemats took a very respectable 4th place, and I’m proud of my sister for taking the win for the week!! Since I made our placemats, Sofie’s already learned “fork,” “spoon,” and “napkin.” So they really are functional for us! It always takes her a little longer to learn the Spanish words, but we’re getting there, too!

Rust & Sunshine: King Cake

Rust & Sunshine: King Cake | Only Good News | Scoop.it

I wanted to make a king cake for Mardi Gras, and after looking at a number of recipes, I discovered that it doesn't really matter what you put in the cake but the dough is always the same - active yeast required. The last (and only) time I made a king cake the traditional way, it ended up about as dense as a bagel. I have no luck when it comes to baking with yeast, but everyone loved that king cake. It was hard to chew, but tasted great!

This time I decided to skip the traditional dough and use my grandma's potica dough instead. In fact, I basically just made an apple potica, minus the apples, and topped it off with a lemony glaze and sugar sprinkles in the traditional Mardi Gras colors.

Yep, they're still out there - in craft stores, hobby shops, and even on Amazon. But you don't have to buy a Shrinky Dink kit to have all the fun. Just look for #6 plastic containers and you can make your own!

Lucky Pony » Blog Archive » Amaretto Peach Cheesecake

Lucky Pony » Blog Archive » Amaretto Peach Cheesecake | Only Good News | Scoop.it

The other day I baked an Amaretto Peach Cheesecake for the first time ever. Unlike the normal cheesecake that we make for Wolves this one has a baked base instead of a biscuit one and the recipe did not call for it to stay in the oven over night. Once it was chilled it was ready to serve. It was a pretty good cheesecake, obviously different in flavours to a normal baked cheesecake, the peaches and amaretto compliment each other well and it’s a pretty cake to look at. I would definitely recommend giving it a try, it’s nice and light, but fruity at the same time. I had a slice the next day with some tea and it hit the sweet spot just right.
