Valentine’s Day Harry Potter Cookies

Did anyone say Valentine's Day Harry Potter Cookies? I wanted to take the "You're a keeper" line and put it into heart shaped cookies, because I can somehow imagine the girls at Hogwarts doing the same thing. There's no Amortentia in my recipe though, only butter sugar and vanilla. And a bit of lemon zest…

I made Game of Thrones Direwolf Bread

Are guys more prone to eat bread in the colder months, or am I just out of control? Either way, I've been baking a lot of treats lately which helped me realize something of significance for you and me: any combination of wholewheat flour, butter and honey is guaranteed to provide mouthwatering results. That's why I practically ran to the kitchen when my friend Mikaella sent me this book in the mail. (Thank you so much, Mika!) So, A Game of Scones by Jammy Lannister is a parody book with mostly silly recipes to make fun of Game of Thrones characters.

And when I got to the page with the Direwolf Bread, I knew I HAD to make it. 

Star Wars Recipes – BB-8 Pull Apart Bread

I wanted to make some Star Wars recipes because it's December and The Last Jedi will be out in less than two weeks (YAY) and I came up with this BB-8 Pull Apart Bread idea while watching Japanese baking channels on Youtube. They call this kind of baked treat "Chigiri Pan", because you're supposed to…

Fantastic Beasts Queenie’s Apple Strudel – Making Harry Potter Food Again!

Was anyone looking for a Fall dessert recipe? I was, especially since it's apple-picking season and I've been seeing apples practically everywhere.  Also, not gonna lie, I LOVED doing that Harry Potter Food series last summer and have missed it so much! I had been considering making Queenie's Apple Strudel since then, especially because this treat has such a beautiful scene in the movie. I just wasn't sure if I was ready for such a baking challenge.  But this time I decided to go for it anyway, and it turned out great! Also, I feel like it's perfect timing because apple strudel screams FALL to me.
