Flourless Chocolate Cake

You may or may not be aware that Passover starts this Friday. I don’t celebrate Passover in any religious sense, but I do celebrate chocolate-covered matzoh, coconut macaroons, and flourless chocolate cake, so I have a soft spot in my heart for this holiday. Let’s talk about flourless chocolate cake for a moment. There are…

Roasted Banana Bundt Cake (and the World’s Best Frosting)

I was excited about this cake for about two hours. See, it’s a fun twist on the traditional banana bundt cake. Instead of adding banana puree to a cake batter, the banana pieces are roasted with butter and brown sugar, then the golden bruleed bananas and their syrupy juices are added to the cake. Think…

Last-Minute Berry Trifle

Happy Fourth of July! I went for a run this morning in the mountains near my house and spent the time thinking about how blessed I feel to live in such a beautiful land. Even when the trail is full of annoying mountain bikers. Even when I kept slipping off the rocks and getting soaked…

TWD: Brown Sugar Bundt Cake

Back in my pre-blogging days, when I was a young idealistic lass, I thought that when I had a food blog, I would bake yummy foods and take pictures of them and write about how yummy they were. My eyes sparkled with naivete and hope. Ah, foolish youth. Instead, what I mainly write about is…

Pink Grapefruit Cake

Hey, remember that time I had all those oranges and grapefruits, and begged for citrus recipes? You guys had some awesome ideas, and I dutifully bookmarked them and printed them and planned on a whopper of a Citrus Month…and then ate almost all of the fruit raw. Grapefruit for breakfast, sometimes two or three oranges…

Lemon-Mascarpone Layer Cake with Edible Flowers

Over Christmas break I stopped by to see my old high school friend Claire. As I was leaving, she offered me lemons from her overflowing tree. My first instinct was to decline, since I was staying with my parents and had no interest in shlepping random lemons back home with me in my already-overstuffed car….

TWD: Nutty Swirly Sour Cream Bundt Cake

I’m a little late posting this amazing bundt cake I made over the weekend, but I have a good excuse. Her name is Madeline, and she is verrrrrry distracting.

Fashionably Late Buche de Noel

Merry Few-Days-After-Christmas, friends! Did you all have wonderful holidays full of eggnog and stockings and too many cookies and repeated viewings of Elf? I know I did. I also had an awesome gift from Santa: How great is that?! I guess he reads the blog! Sweeeet. A sassy shirt is all well and good, but…
