Signature RECIPES from FOODESSA's kitchen
(updated: AUGUST 2016)

Unless otherwise mentioned...
ALL recipes are created and developed through my culinary journey.
Enjoy.




First, how I bake...
here’s a 101 of sorts to make sure that there are no disappointments when trying my creations.  
Also...just so you know...
feel free to up the sweet factor since I'm not high on anything too sweet ;o)


. Use DRY cup measurements for...you guessed it...all DRY ingredients.
Anything DRY gets measured by spooning the overfilled ingredient (never shake the cup) and then level off with a flat edged tool.  Exception...Brown sugar should be packed in and leveled.
. Use LIQUID cup measurements for...all LIQUIDS that cannot be leveled like for example butter, yogurt...etc.  Measure the liquids at eye level to avoid overdoing what the recipe truly needs.
OVENS are unfortunately not created equal.  Mine is so old that it has reached many degrees off it's norm.  It's really worth investing a few dollars to test yours with an appropriate oven thermometer.  You'd be surprised how many ovens I've heard about not being where they should have been.  Before you lose any more ingredients and much time preparing a new recipe...run to the store...you'll thank me later.
