TWD: Mint and Chocolate Split-Level Pudding

Originally, I wasn’t going to make these split-level puddings. We’re not…how you say…pudding people around my house, and it seemed like a waste of time and energy to make something no one would really eat. But then, my friends, I had a vision. 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...

TWD: If You’re Gonna Be My Rice Pudding, It Don’t Matter If You’re Black or White

My excitement over this week’s TWD recipe could be summed up by the sound of crickets chirping. I actually like rice pudding, but…you know, when I feel like indulging in dessert, I don’t know that rice should be involved. Gobs of frosting and pounds of chocolate? Yes. A grain typically served as a side dish…

Chocolate-Chile Souffles with Cardamom Creme Anglaise

When I read on Anita’s blog that this month’s Sugar High Friday theme is Spices, I immediately knew I wanted to make a cardamom dessert. Cardamom is an underutilized spice in my kitchen–I love the flavor, but I rarely make desserts that can showcase its unique, exotic flavor. I considering pairing it with fruit like…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Cinnamon Crème Brûlée

Yes, this is a story about baking. It’s about crème brûlée, and how to make a fine, fine batch of cinnamon-flavored custard. But mostly it’s a love story. I am speaking, of course, about the love between a girl and her brand-spankin-new Bernzomatic Fat Boy propane blow torch. Because, you see, there is only one…

You know you belong to a hardcore baking group when you’re assigned to bake éclairs and everyone sighs with relief and gushes about how easy the challenge will be this month.
