Recipe Index

This index is a work in progress, since I'm always adding new recipes. It includes recipes that I've featured on this blog, plus some by me elsewhere and by other bloggers who write guest posts here.

Since this blog closed on 9/11/2014, new recipes are on the new blog. You can find them here. Also, the single serving dessert recipes, Desserts With Borders also continue on the new blog. Find the new Desserts With Borders recipes over at Anali's Next Amendment.

I'm often asked what cake recipe I recommend for a birthday or some other celebration. Recipes that I truly love are Magnolia's Vanilla Cupcakes and Magnolia's Vanilla buttercream Frosting.

Use cake pans to make a layer cake instead of cupcakes. You can cut the recipe in half to make a single layer cake or half as many cupcakes. Add cocoa powder or other flavorings to the frosting to change it from vanilla. Your imagination is the only limit when it comes to the different cakes, cupcakes, frostings, and glazes that you can make from these two recipes. Have fun experimenting!

*My Cooking + Baking Philosophy*
Wondering why I use rice milk and Smart Balance or Earth Balance instead of butter, margarine, or regular milk? Check out the posts Got Rice Milk? and Baking Without Dairy.

I believe in creativity and improvisation in the kitchen, so these recipes are merely a guide. While these are the ingredients and measurements that I used when I wrote these posts, it's very rare that I cook or bake something exactly the same way each time.

I'm always trying new ingredients and playing with the amounts. I encourage you to do the same. And if you try a recipe, please do let me know how you liked it or even if you didn't like it.

*Recipe Disclaimers*
Recently, I've begun a serious DIY journey, so I'm also sharing some "recipes" for beauty products. Of course, you should probably not eat these.

After writing this post, A Recipe For Torts, I thought that a friendly reminder about safety might be in order.  Please be careful when making any recipe posted here. I might make a recipe once and post it. I don't do any major testing, because it's not how I cook or bake. I share what I make at home. If any recipe here seems off in some way to you, please follow your instinct and don't follow as instructed. And please let me know, so I can change it! Hopefully I didn't scare you off and you will enjoy these recipes!   : )
