Chocolate and Cinnamon Babka Buns

Chocolate and Cinnamon Babka Buns

I am a huge fan of chocolate babka, which is a sweet, yeast dough rolled and wrapped around a chocolate and cinnamon mixture that when cooked, delightfully melts in your mouth. I first learned about babka from the show Seinfeld and I was intrigued. My second babka experience happened on a trip to New York. Passing by a bakery one day, I was awestruck by the rows and rows of muffins, croissants, danishes and breads, but what stood out above everything else was a chocolate babka bun. I didn’t order one, but looking at it I was hooked into the challenge of making my own. I have made this Chocolate and Cinnamon Babka Buns recipe many times and everyone loves it! It’s a great recipe and it never fails to bring a smile to all who participate in devouring it. Continue Reading →

Grilled Lamb Chops with Blueberry-Rosemary Sauce

Grilled Lamb Chops with Blueberry-Rosemary Sauce

If elegant is what you’re after, these Grilled Lamb Chops with Blueberry-Rosemary Sauce are the way to go. They make any dinner an occasion. Lamb chops are a sure sign of a fancy affair. But that doesn’t mean they’re hard to prepare or should be saved for special occasions. Actually, lamb chops can’t be beat in the summer as they cook quickly and are perfect for grilling. If you’ve never purchased lamb chops before, it can get confusing. So here’s what you need to know. There are two types of lamb chops available–rib and loin chops. If you’re looking for the show-stopper with the long bone, buy rib chops. The loin chop is a tiny t-bone steak containing meat from both the tenderloin and the short loin. Be sure to let the lamb rest after it’s grilled. If it’s sliced too soon, the juices will be lost, causing the meat to become dry. Continue Reading →

BLT Salad with Buttermilk Dressing

BLT Salad with Buttermilk Dressing

I will never understand why anyone would want to buy store-bought salad dressing when they are so easy to make, taste far nicer and are not pumped full of preservatives if you make them yourself. I like to make mine in a jam jar so that I can store any left overs easily in the fridge. It will sit quite happily for up to a week, so I often make up double batches to save myself time after a busy day fishing. Try this tasty BLT Salad with Buttermilk Dressing. Continue Reading →
