Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate Bread Pudding

My name is Elizabeth, and I’m a bread pudding-holic. Hi, Elizabeth! I first experimented with bread pudding in college, at a cozy restaurant called The Press in Claremont. I enjoyed it and ordered it on a regular basis, but I was able to control my intake and considered my bread pudding consumption to be at…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate Amaretti Torte

Today on Wild Culinary Kingdom, we study the elusive Amaretti cookie. Amaretti cookies, being naturally shy, are difficult to spot in the wild. Their endangered status makes them a rare sighting indeed, especially in the bustling metropolis of Los Angeles. If you are lucky enough to find one, approach it with caution, and do not…

Daring Bakers: Fashionably Late Valentino Cake

Yes, it’s March, and I’m just now posting the February Daring Bakers challenge. I could make excuses about my busy schedule, but I prefer to blame the tardiness on the month of February itself. Only 28 days! Two days less than every other month! HOW can I be expected to keep on top of everything…

TWD Rewind: Quintuple Chocolate Brownies

For some reason the idea of transporting creme anglaise, poached meringues, and decorative spun sugar strands into…

Ladies and gentlemen, I have finally found the solution to all of life’s ills. I present to you: WORLD PEACE cookies World Peace Cookies…

TWD: Chocolate Gingerbread Cake

Gingerbread this week! Yesssss! Was I alone in doing the fist-pump over this one? (Sometimes I feel like I’m the only person in the world who actually likes gingerbread cake. Seriously, mention it to people and they kind of grimace at you and mutter things like “sticky” and “molasses bomb.” Now I know how the…
