TWD: Apple Cranberry Crisp

This week’s TWD pick, Apple Cranberry Crisp, was just about perfect. Juicy chunks of Honeycrisp apples (my fave!), tart fresh cranberries, and a streusel topping packed with coconut and ginger. It practically screamed EAT ME. Yes, it was aaaalmost perfect… But it was missing something: That’s better! What’s a warm fruit crisp without a big…

TWD: Flaky Apple Turnovers

I just fired my husband, and these flaky apple turnovers are to blame. See, his job to is bring mindfulness and moderation to my dessert consumption. Without his gentle reminders, I am prone to eating enormous quantities of desserts all at once and then loudly whining about how much I regret it for the rest…

TWD: Applesauce Spice Bars

Say hello to entry #276 in the “Not Much To Look At But Darn Tasty” category of desserts: Dorie’s Applesauce Spice Bars. I wasn’t head-over-heels about making this recipe, since it seems very autumn-ish and it’s still only August. More fresh berry desserts, please! However, the day after I made this, we had a beautiful…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Parisian Apple Tart

I’m still in Peru. Holla! By the time you read this, I will have already hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu and will be in the Amazon, taunting piranhas and taming capybaras and hopefully not contracting malaria from mosquitoes the size of grapefruits. Good times! But of course I wanted to vicariously participate in…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Apple Crumb Cake

Riddle me this: how is it that I can be completely unimpressed with a dessert and still eat half of it, standing up at the kitchen counter? THAT is a mystery for the ages.[Another mystery for the ages is why it is so difficult to photograph powdered sugar without it becoming an electric-white eyesore. Please…

Baked Apple Ice Cream & Honey Granola

I have a shameful amount of apples withering away in my produce crisper. It’s really their own fault that they’re not getting eaten–the crisper is not fulfilling its stated purpose, and it’s hard to get excited about eating mealy, soft apples when there are so many delicious summer berries and melons to be eating instead….

Danish Braids with the Daring Bakers

Work has been horribly hectic, leading me to ignore this poor blog for nearly a month. Fortunately I have the monthly Daring Bakers challenges to motivate me and to ensure that I’m blogging at least a minimal amount. This month we made Danish Braids. What is the secret to making tasty danishes, you ask? Lots…

Pancake or Death?

For breakfast on a lazy Thanksgiving morning, we had a Dutch Oven Pancake (also known as a Dutch Baby) with caramelized apples. I have very fond childhood memories of my mom cooking Dutch Oven Pancakes on special occasions; they were too unhealthy (all that butter! All those eggs!) to be an everyday breakfast. Since Thanksgiving…
