Tuesdays with Dorie: Rugelach

So a few weeks ago I whined about how I hate making biscotti because I used to have to make it by the truckload. Someone, somewhere, heard my pathetic grumbling and decided to teach me a lesson by having rugelach be this week’s TWD recipe. You see, back in the day when I had to…

Take Your Blog to Work Day

I’ve been a little quiet lately because work has been hectic. This past weekend we had a 100-person wedding (tiered cake, groom’s cake cupcakes, and mini cookie wedding favors) and a 300-person dessert catering event, in addition to our usual daily orders. And have I mentioned that we are currently a two-woman operation? Fortunately, we…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Lenox (non)Almond Biscotti

Let me start by saying: I really liked the recipe this week! Huzzah! Really, my enjoyment of this week’s recipe comes as such a relief. I was starting to get a complex, because I feel like every week I’m a Bad Attitude Bear. It’s all, “I wanted to like this recipe, buuuut…whine whine whine.” And…

Snickerdoodles of Lust

I have a shameful confession: I have been watching the new 90210 show. This is especially embarrassing because not only is it lowest-common-denominator teenybopper trash, but it’s not even well done trash. Whereas some teen shows can be defended because they provide an endless stream of over-the-top soapy action and questionably awesome fashion, 90210 is dead dull….

Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate Chunkers

Chipsters, Chunkers, Grabbers…we Doritos continue our obsession with twee-ly named cookies this week. “Chocolate Chunkers” have a rich, fudgy cookie base with lots of melted chocolate (unsweetened and bittersweet) AND cocoa in the batter, which is then loaded with chunks of bittersweet and white chocolate, chopped nuts, and dried fruit.

Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops

Picasso had his blue period. Woody Allen had his Scarlett Johansson period. And we Tuesdays with Dorie bakers, we are in the midst of our great Cookie Period. Last week we did Chunkariffic Peanutty Buttery Oatey Chocolatey Cookie-y Chubbers (or whatever they were called) and this week we have Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops. No boring…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Oatmeal-Peanut-Chocolate Cookies

I passed on last week’s TWD recipe because I was all alone in the house and couldn’t justify making a big ice cream-ganache cake with only my lonesome to eat it, and my miserly self couldn’t justify using almost a dozen eggs and pounds of chocolate, only to gift the whole thing to friends. There…

Cat Got Your Tongue?

Reasons I was intrigued by this recipe for “Cat’s Tongue” cookies: 1. The name, of course, but more specifically the groan-inducing puns that could be constructed from the name (see title above) 2. The DELICIOUS-sounding description of these cookies as “soft sponge-cake,” with a buttercream filling and a coating of chocolate 3. I am deep…
