The Passionate Culina, all natural home-style baked treats. Baked creations inspired by my family's dedication to made from scratch baked goods and our love for cooking and entertaining. All of my baked items are always made from natural ingredients (organic when possible), meaning none of the dairy products (milk, eggs, cream & butter etc.), are produced with hormones or antibiotics. All of the flavorings are natural not imitation, and all of the flour products are unbleached.
Here you will find examples of my work, some of which will be available for purchase. You will also be able to follow my trials as a edible gardener. Lastly, you will occasionally see a few things and people that inspire me and my passion.
All the photographs of food belong to me, The Passionate Culinista, unless otherwise stated.
The substitution of Greek style yogurt for buttermilk or milk in pancake, waffle and biscuit recipes make for out of this world tender and fluffy creations. What you see here are whole wheat pancakes so fluffy you could sleep on them. I use the Joy of Cooking pancake recipe and added an extra egg, swapped the yogurt for buttermilk, and replaced 1 of the 1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour with whole wheat flour. For those of us stretching to get all of our protein add some of your whey powder to your dry ingredients. #pancakes #wholewheat #greekyogurt #vanilla #lemonextract #whatsforbreakfast #breakfast #instafood #instagood #foodpics #foodporn #foodphotos #thepassionateculina #pambrosia
