How to Cook Breakfast Crepe-Cakes

When I was making breakfast yesterday, I suppose I was a bit sleepy still, as I had forgotten to put all the ingredients in my batter for pancakes. As my pancakes are sitting in the frying pan, I’m realizing that they aren’t rising, and fluffing up with lovely bubbles in them. That’s when I realize…I forgot the baking powder. Seeing that I’m a perfectionist of sorts, I was ready to call it a wrap and feed...

How to Cook Kasper Family German-Style Crepes

This is one of our favorite Kasper family recipes…In fact, it’s the first recipe I learned to make on my own when I moved away from home. We don’t really eat the small, fluffy pancakes most families eat. We called these big, thin delights “pancakes”…our style of pancakes. Golden and delicious, these beautiful crepes can be eaten for breakfast, brunch or dinner, if desired. Try...

How to Make Strawberry Freezer Jam + Video

Freezer jam always seems to capture the real essence and taste of the fruit used, especially when it comes to Strawberry Freezer Jam. We are particularly fond of berry jams, but we try to freeze some of each fruit as it comes into season, so we are able to use fruit fresh from the plant or tree. Not only do we use this strawberry jam as a condiment for toast, pancakes or crepes, but we also use it in sauces, vinaigrettes, yogurt and...

I had some cheese, roasted red peppers, ground beef, lime wedges, fresh tomato salsa and...

How to Cook Boxty: St. Patrick’s Day Recipes

Boxty is a traditional Irish recipe for a potato pancake containing both mashed and grated potatoes, giving you the experience of both pancake & hash browns in one. What a good choice for breakfast or supper! It goes well with many other ethnic cuisines as well. I think it would be delicious with smoked salmon, in place of other kinds of pancakes like crepes or blini, served with sour cream or creme fraiche. Salmon is one of the...

How to Poach Eggs: It’s World Egg Day

World Egg Day is here, and I must say, today’s cooks would be lost without eggs to fire their imaginations. Cake batters become transformed by incorporating eggs. What would crepes be without eggs? Custards & rich ice cream would lose smoothness and sauces wouldn’t emulsify properly. Purchase the freshest eggs possible, as old eggs don’t compare in desired texture & taste. So, always purchase the best quality...

National Pancake Day: A Favorite Family Recipe

National Pancake Day allows us yet another time to create some family favorites. We like the traditional 4 or 5 inch pancakes, but we prefer my Mother’s recipe for German pancakes. With so many pancake recipes out there, these just have what I crave. I suppose it’s because it’s what I grew up on. I’m sure you have similar affinities for a particular style of pancake yourself based upon the childhood comforts...

Canadian Maple Syrup: Moments I Remember

Doesn’t the cold weather remind you of Canadian Maple Syrup… The sweet tapping of trees in the woods, as Spring was on the far horizon. When I was young, our farm was adjacent to a grand stand of various species of maple trees, and many others as well as sumachs, chestnuts & vines. A little creek ran through it and provided the world’s best baby sitter. We played, fished, waded & collected shells, stones,...
