Nutella Semifreddo for World Nutella Day

My Google Reader was a thing of beauty this morning: dozens of new posts from my favorite food blogs, bursting with delicious Nutella recipes in honor of World Nutella Day. It’s the most wonderful time of the year… I’ve already featured two different types of homemade nutella, and four-ingredient Nutella cupcakes, but trust me when…

Apple-Apple Bread Pudding (MY PICK!)

Today is a banner day, my friends! Today is the day that we baked my chosen recipe for Tuesdays with Dorie, the online baking group I belong to. If you’re not a member of this group, please understand that this is a Big Deal. There are approximately five bajillion members (give or take a kablillion)…

Milk Chocolate Cremeux with Coconut Sorbet

This may sound odd coming from a sugarphile, but I don’t usually order dessert when eating out. I eat so many sweets at work and at home as it is, I feel like it has to be really worth it for me to spend my dining-out calories on more dessert. But when the husband and…

Daring Bakers: Chocolate Coconut Tira-wheee!-su!

I’ve been something of a Daring Baker’s slacker these past few months. Not to bore you with whining, but it’s been busy, none of the challenges have appealed to me, yadda yadda boo hoo hoo. But that all changed this month, when I learned that the challenge was tiramisu. Whoooo, I LOVE me some tiramisu!…

TWD: Mint and Chocolate Split-Level Pudding

Originally, I wasn’t going to make these split-level puddings.

A vision of adorable mini pudding glasses filled with rich chocolate ganache…

Tuesdays with Mommie II: Chocolate Souffles

Guess who’s back baking with me?! I’ll give you a hint: you may know her from such baking adventures as Tuesdays with Mommie: Linzer Sables. Yes, it’s my ma! She’s here visiting us for a few days, and she brought our signature baking move with her:

Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate Bread Pudding

My name is Elizabeth, and I’m a bread pudding-holic. Hi, Elizabeth! I first experimented with bread pudding in college, at a cozy restaurant called The Press in Claremont. I enjoyed it and ordered it on a regular basis, but I was able to control my intake and considered my bread pudding consumption to be at…

Tuesdays With Dorie: In Which I Invent A New Word

[Editor's Note: I've been feeling like a TWD slacker recently. Life has been so hectic, I've had to skip a week here or there, and I haven't been able to visit and comment on everyone else's blogs like I've wanted to. Apologies and air kisses all around! With vows to do better, it is onward...
