Sifted: Coconut Rice Pudding, Banh Mi Fries + More

Coconut Rice Pudding

Hot Links We’re Loving:

• Jasmine rice simmer in coconut milk to create this thick, dreamy Coconut Rice Pudding What’s Cooking Good Looking then finishes it off with roasted cherries and a cascade of roasted coconut.

• Sandwiches naturally go with fries, so it seems natural that a loaded banh mi sandwich would be just as palatable reinvented as i am a food blog‘s Banh Mi Fries. Top matchstick-thin fries with Chinese barbecued pork, pickled daikons and carrots, jalapeno, cilantro and a squirt of sriracha.

• Next time you have fresh, juicy strawberries on your hands, swaddle them in a lightly sweet, diaphanous homemade crêpe. Sweet Crêpes, courtesy of Herriott Grace, are the perfect way to put your market haul to use, especially when drizzled with some pure maple syrup.

• Using just one mixing bowl and a cast-iron skillet, The Earthen Table conjures a Blueberry Oat Cake that’s light and moist, not to mention vegan and gluten-free.

• What exactly adds the spice into these oozing Spiced Blackberry Hand Pies? In This Kitchen hits the fresh, fruity filling with cayenne to lay down some subtly sweet heat.

Sifted: Raspberry Ripple Buckwheat Porridge, Matcha Lemonade + More

Raspberry Ripple Buckwheat Porridge

Hot Links We’re Loving:

  • If the word porridge just makes you think of Goldilocks and her search for the middle ground, it’s time to try Raspberry Ripple Buckwheat Porridge by My New Roots. This raw take is made by soaking protein- and fiber-rich buckwheat overnight before streaking it with a maple-spiked raspberry ripple. It’s just right.
  • Looking for the refreshment factor of lemonade without sacrificing the jolt necessity of coffee? Spoon Fork Bacon stirs up Matcha Lemonade, which beats the heat and has a zap of reinvigorating caffeine.
  • Peaches get a lot of love at this time of year, but don’t overlook the other in-season stone fruits. Adventures in Cooking uses one single apricot to make Salted Caramel Apricot Pots de Crème, which marries a sweet, caramelized sugar flavor with the welcome tartness of the tiny fruit. It’s the perfect finale to a summery outdoor dinner party.
  • The same way that orange and dark chocolate just belong together, Lemon White Chocolates from Chasing Delicious balance the sweet-and-sour nature of citrus with the creamy, delicate notes of white chocolate.

Black and White Baked Donuts

Hot Links We’re Loving:

• If you can’t turn down a classic New York-style black and white cookie at the deli, Joy the Baker’s Black and White Baked Donuts are here to create an even bigger problem for you.

• Classifying batter as part of a raw diet may sound like a stretch, but Minimalist Baker makes a vegan Brownie Batter Spread that might just make the cut. A simple blend of nuts, chocolate and dates, each bite tastes just like a fudgy brownie – and is just as pleasant to lick from the bowl.

• Wrap up the World Cup with forkless snacks that hit the coffee table quickly – and leave your hands free for aggressive cheering. These Sticky Sesame Chicken Wings from Smitten Kitchen are roasted, not fried. You can toss them in their hoisin-honey glaze between plays.

• The sidewalks aren’t the only thing that’ll be scorched this summer. Hummingbird High dreamed up Strawberry Crème Brûlée that gives a crackly, caramelized spin to the classic berries-and-cream combo.

• If you’ve ever made baklava from scratch, you know all that layering gets old fast. Luckily, A Couple Cooks sidesteps the monotonous prep with easy-to-make Baklava Cups filled with honey and nuts.

Watermelon Cake

Hot Links We’re Loving:

• Always yearned to say “I carried a watermelon” at a party? This 4th of July, make it a reality with Style Sweet CA’s watermelon cake, complete with a red velvet interior and black sprinkle “seeds.”

• Forget root beer in your ice cream floats. The Sugar Hit gives this fizzy classic a summery spin with a blackberry-vanilla ice cream float that might just replace the original. Striped straws are mandatory.

• In related switcheroo news, the good ole berries-and-cream trifle has been a part of Independence Day cookout spreads for a reason. This year, switch it up with Taste and Tell’s Peanut Butter and Brownie Trifle that’s layered in all the right ways.

• Blenders aren’t just for smoothies and margaritas anymore. Love and Lemonsmango gazpacho is so light and cool, you might just opt for a bowl of soup next time you’re lounging by the pool.

• A magic flan cake by Sprinkle Bakes is just that, magic. The flan and cake layers switch places while they’re baking, and the end result is a fusion of caramel, custard and cake goodness.
