TWD: Caramel Pot de Creme

caramelpotdecreme6

TWD stands for Thursdays with Dorie, right? I have been doing way too much blogging for money and not enough blogging for myself lately, which: a)first world problems, anyone? and b) shut up, me. But it is disappointing and frustrating to have to put my favorite hobby on hold. I can’t even remember the last…

Salted Caramel Bars

Jason & I are not one of those “twinny” couples who seem to belong together at first glance–in fact I think our relationship sometimes mystifies people who don’t know us very well. Although I think we’re pretty well matched in the important areas, it’s true that we’re opposite in many ways. I love to run…

TWD: Burnt Sugar Ice Cream

I have just 3 letters to describe this week’s TWD pick, Burnt Sugar Ice Cream. O.M.G. Now obviously, this stands for Oh-so-delicious Mind-blowingly Good Or, judging by the tasty puddle rapidly forming underneath all my ice cream scoops, despite hours of chilling and lightening-quick scooping, it stands for Outrageously Melty & Guzzle-able Yes, we absolutely…

TWD: Dulce de Leche Duos

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, Dulce de Leche Duos, arrived with high expectations. I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I live with a devoted dulce de leche lovah. When the husband heard that the dulce de leche cookies were on the agenda, he looked a little something like this: Unfortunately, the finished product…

Happy New Year! Happy Caramel Corn!

Happy new year! Maybe I always feel this way and don’t remember, or maybe this year in particular has overstayed its welcome, but I am so ready to begin a new year, and a new decade. The slate, she is fresh and ready to be filled with only good things, good thoughts, and good actions…

TWD: Caramel Crunch Tart with Nougat Ice Cream

Hello, Snickers bar disguised as a fancy tart! I mean, that’s what this was, right? A crispy tart shell encased a fabulously dark caramel sauce studded with salty peanuts, topped by a rich chocolate ganache. Caramel + peanuts + chocolate = Snickery goodness. Of course, this tart was waaaay better than your common candy bar.I…

Daring Bakers Challenge: Just Say Cheesecake

Lately I have started to suspect an ugly truth about myself. No matter how much I like to think the opposite, it is possible that my heart is not into being a Daring Baker. (Note the very important capital letters. I will forever be a daring baker–many burned pans and discarded desserts will attest to…

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…
