Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate Cream Tart

Oh, Chocolate Cream Tart, I wanted to love you. I thought I would love you. But I guess we’re just not meant to be together.See, usually I’m a big ole chocolate freak. I’m always adding extra ounces of chocolate to recipes, or sneaking in an extra layer of chocolate ganache, or stuffing my mouth with…

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: 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…

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: Caramel Crunch Bars

These Caramel Crunch Bars are like the Clark Kent of baked goods. Mild in manner, mundane in appearance, but put them in a telephone booth…okay, the analogy kind of breaks down after awhile. But my point remains: these simple little bars are spectacular. From the description and procedure, I was expecting these to be kind…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate White-Out Cake

There’s nothing like a minor cake freak-out to make you feel like a jerk.The situation was thus: I had a fairly busy day scheduled, and everything was running behind. I didn’t get up early enough, so my gym trip ran behind, so I got home later than planned and had only a few minutes to…

TWD Rewind: Quintuple Chocolate Brownies

Presenting this week’s TWD recipe, Floating Islands: Okay, just kidding. I skipped the floating islands, because I am all alone in the house this week and wanted to make a dessert I could easily share with other people. For some reason the idea of transporting creme anglaise, poached meringues, and decorative spun sugar strands into…
