oatmeal-nutmeg-scones-2

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. I am pleased to present a very special Poetry Edition of Tuesdays with Dorie. *polite applause* There once was a food called a scone With oatmeal and nutmeg alone In looks it was simple Bumps, crags, and a-dimpled But the taste could make a man moan!

brown-sugar-bundt-3

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…

TWD: Honey-Nut Brownies

Things You Should Know About Honey-Nut Brownies 1. They sound like a delicious breakfast cereal 2. They look and taste more like a honey cake than a chocolate brownie 3. They are much improved by a thick layer of fudgy chocolate-sour cream frosting 4. There is nothing in the world that is not much improved…

Marzipan Brownie Tart

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! To celebrate, we had this festive dessert: Okay, so it doesn’t look very festive from the outside. Actually, it looks downright plain. Homely. FRUMPY. There, I said it. But it has a surprise inside… A bright green layer of homemade pistachio marzipan! …Wait, come back.
