Chocolate Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake

¡Hola! Bonjour! 你好! Oi! Ciao! Aloha! Dia duit! Salvete! Tja! Malo! It’s been pretty hectic around here. Between the Sift! Strawberry Loaves that have been shipping out like they are the sure cure for male pattern baldness or they permanently erase wrinkles and the carrot cake requests (if you haven’t tried it, you haven’t experienced love), my head is spinning. I truly wouldn’t have it any other way. Let’s not forget about wedding season! With that said, it’s a sweet […]

Cornberry Muffins

                        Welcome! Welcome! I happen to make these on rainy day. For that reason, I’m going to tell you that these are best eaten on a rainy day. They are also best eaten roughly 5 minutes after you’ve pulled them from the oven with tea – darjeeling, if you’re a tea person like I happen to be. I have always loved the combination of blueberries and corn meal. They […]

Honey & Chocolate Loaf Dessert Style

Remember that chocolate loaf from Monday? In the case that you are looking for a way to dress it up and make a dessert out of it, here’s a simple and quick way to do so. Remember this one for the 4th of July if you’re festive in that way. The honey note in the chocolate loaf makes the flavor of the blueberries pop. First, cut up/cube enough of the loaf to satisfy your craving. Then, simply sift 1/3 cup […]

Honey & Chocolate Pound Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Spread

Hi! Today we’re finally working with some chocolate. It isn’t as much chocolate as I would like to show, but we’ve got to start somewhere (baby steps)! Dark chocolate pound cake, deep chocolate pound cake, deep dark chocolate pound cake, dark and deepest pound cake – well, it’s all the same! I wanted to give the flavor another dimension, so I added honey. No, this isn’t anything new. However, it is something that you don’t see often. The addition of […]

Strawberry Bread is Here!

Hi Guys! Strawberries are in season and I couldn’t be happier! Besides apples, strawberries have to be my absolute fave to bake and create with whether sweet or savory. With that said, say hello to Sift’s! Strawberry Bread. It is a delicious cinnamon spiked bread with loads of strawberries dumped right into the batter. Right now, the Strawberry loaves are Buy 1 Get 1 FREE! This is for a very limited time and YES, they ship all over the U.S! […]

Celebrating National Chili Day with Cincinnati Chili!

Hello Again! February 24th is National Chili Day. I don’t know about you, but I’ll be calling off from work. With that time off, I’ll be making a new variation of Cincinnati chili. It’s spaghetti topped with chili. Come to think of it, this would be a really nice upscale ballpark dish. Is there a such thing as an upscale ballpark? If there isn’t, let’s start working on that. Anyhoo, the chili itself is thinner than the usual chili we’ve […]

Oatmeal Raisin and Cream Scones

Okay, okay. It’s been far too long since you’ve heard from me.

As time goes on, I’ll fill you in on all of the good stuff – promise! Before I forget, get a load of a couple of Sift! desserts in the spring […]

Hot Buttered Rum

There are quite a few things I could say about hot buttered rum. It’s hot. It’s buttery, and it tastes of rum. The spiced butter doubles as an excellent spread on Sift!’s One thing’s for sure, it brings one thing to mind – CHRISTMAS! My absolute favorite time of year, indeed. I think there is even a rule somewhere that states hot buttered rum is only to be consumed during the holiday season beginning Thanksgiving day and ending New Year’s […]
