TWD: Banana-Coconut Ice Cream Pie

This week’s Banana-Coconut Ice Cream Pie was a bit of an odd duck for me. I think a large part of my problem was the name. It had me expecting lush tropical flavors, but then the chocolate ice cream kind of stole the show and overwhelmed everything else. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that…)…

Believe it or not, my brother’s wedding cake wasn’t the only cake I made last weekend.

Tuesdays with Dorie: Chockablock Cookies

I was so glad that Mary of Popsicles and Sandy Feet picked Chocolablock Cookies for this week’s TWD recipe, because after weeks of dueling with bundt pans and tart shells, I was ready for some good old-fashioned cookie love. But it turns out these chockablock cookies are not your grandma’s cookies. These could also be…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Cream Biscuits

My mom has been getting a lot of attention on the ole blog, but I don’t want you to think that she’s the only parenting game in town. Allow me to introduce my father: In my family, there were a few culinary tasks that always fell to my father: grilling (of course), butchering and filleting…
