Food Facts

Recently, we posted a picture of Molasses Flourless Cake with Cinnamon Buttercream to our facebook page (not following us there? Well you should! We're always updating with tips, tricks, and pics!). Now, depending on how adventurous an eater you are, that might sound amazing, or it might sound weird. But molasses in baked goods is a delicious, nutritious departure from the ordinary. Molasses (also known as treacle, in England) is a by-product of refining sugar with an intriguing name that comes from the Portuguese word for honey.

Early markets date all the way back to ancient Egypt, where farmers would sell or trade their crops along the Nile.

What is in Your Cookie?

Food Facts

In the new millennium, convenience is king. As much of a joy as baking can be (and believe us, we LOVE baking!), there's not always time to start from scratch. So you turn to store-bought cookies instead of homemade. Maybe you trust a familiar, age-old brand and don't bother to question it, or maybe you don't have the time to investigate every ingredient to see if it's as scary as it sounds. But we'll bet you have time to just count the number of ingredients, and we highly suggest that you do. Mrs. Field's Peanut Butter cookies, for example, have nineteen ingredients,...
