  • Grandmas Strawberry Scones

    Those scones remind me of grandma, she often made them when we would come over to hang out at her place. Scones are pretty popular now a days. Starbucks sells blueberry scones, but in my opinion, you cannot compare them to homemade, warm out the oven…yummy

    Few tips that I learned over the years of making those scones:

    The secret to perfectly soft scones is not to over work the...

  • Canned Cherries

    This is one of my first adventures into the canning world. I like when things are simple, and canning did not appear to be that easy. I was wrong on this one; this recipe is actually as easy as it gets.

    I've had time to test these already and must say - they've turned out wonderful. The next step, is to use them for baking pastries.

    I had my husband try out few, he thought I bought them somewhere. When he found out I made them, he said you should open your own candy store. Go for it, impress your husband :)

    If you have never tried Zefir, I would say the closest thing to it are marshmallows. This makes an amazing addition to any party. I love this recipe, using simple ingredients that I always have on hand.

    Side note: This zefir may taste different than a store bough, much softer, just because they are fresh.

    Most people call this beatiful creation Bylochki but I call them Piroshky, we always have in our family.
    We Slavic people love our piroshky with poppy seed, the more poppy seed the better. We grew some in our garden in Ukraine, mom would use it in very small potions for piroshky as it was treated like a delicacy. Out of all piroshky she made one or two rolls with poppy seed and we would...

If you are choosing to go with making cake or cakes pops, I would say that they are not any...

  • Drunken Raisins Cake

    Updated March 3, 2014
    The idea for drunken raisins came to me, while on Alaska Cruise, last summer. I've ordered ice-cream and it came with raisins on top that were drunken. I was telling my husband, why don’t we ever make drunken raisins cake? They taste so good. My mission was to test it out when we get home.

    Raisins are small and spread out nicely inside for a perfect flavor...
