Homestyle Hamburger Buns


If you were ever wondering how to make Homestyle Hamburger Buns to serve with a juicy barbecued burger, you’re in luck: I wondered the same thing! Playing with dough can be instructive: some tinkering with egg led me to forming these buns, readily mistaken for a bag of freshly baked buns at a local bakery. The buns were light and fluffy with a sprinkle of sesame seeds sealing the look and eliciting the doubt-laden question: “Wait, you made these?!" Bake to impress. Enjoy!!

Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake Bars


If anyone wonders where to put the extra jam leftover from an earlier recipe, these Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake Bars may be the solution. When I make fresh jams, I usually make more than I can actually use, resulting in some alternative applications (think: sweet meets savory). In this dessert, the wonderfully tangy raspberry jam swirled into the vanilla cheesecake filling is a great blend of silky sweet atop a buttery shortbread crust. Another sharable treat that makes for a charmingly sized barbecue bite. Enjoy!!

Danish, Raspberry or Cheese


While fiddling around with buttery croissant dough, I realized during the "butter layer" stage I made a particularly delicious blunder.  Spreading softened butter onto the dough prior to folding, instead of using a semi-firm butter layer, made for a softer layered pastry. And thus these Raspberry and Cheese Danishes were fashioned. Filled with a dollop of cream cheese, or freshly prepared raspberry jam, this buttery pastry was  delectably soft and layered, making for a delightful breakfast treat. Enjoy!!

Raspberry Jam


This fresh Raspberry Jam is a perfectly tart addition to the growing collection of jams, jellies, and compotes. Serving up heaping flavor in a small spoonful, it works wonderfully as a glaze, atop breads, or as a filling. Enjoy!!
