TWD: Cherry Nectarine Pie

This pie is actually supposed to be a berry galette. See, despite having a college education and a job where I actually get paid to write things, I still have my moments of illiteracy. I misread the recipe schedule for Tuesdays with Dorie, and instead of making this week’s galette recipe, I made last week’s…

Cherry-Chocolate Heart Truffles

I think I need to start getting kickbacks from the luster dust industry. Or is it bad form to say that out loud? Let me start again.

As George Costanza would say, “worlds are colliding!” So rather than make 2 separate posts, today’s blog will be a super-duper-mega-big post about…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Rugelach

So a few weeks ago I whined about how I hate making biscotti because I used to have to make it by the truckload. Someone, somewhere, heard my pathetic grumbling and decided to teach me a lesson by having rugelach be this week’s TWD recipe. You see, back in the day when I had to…

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…
