Apple-Apple Bread Pudding (MY PICK!)

Today is a banner day, my friends! Today is the day that we baked my chosen recipe for Tuesdays with Dorie, the online baking group I belong to. If you’re not a member of this group, please understand that this is a Big Deal. There are approximately five bajillion members (give or take a kablillion)…

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: Cinnamon Squares

You guys, my brain is fried. There is a small pathetic puddle of gray jelly in between my ears, where my thinkbox should be. I can’t even summon the mental fortitude to wax rhapsodic about the cinnamon squares we made this week: See, I’m writing this entry a few days in advance, because we’re going…

Thankful for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies were a holiday tradition around my house, so imagine my surprise when, in my adulthood, I encountered those unfortunate souls who had never had a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie. (Some even went so far as to gag at the thought of pumpkin and chocolate combined, and to them I say: fools!)…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Lenox (non)Almond Biscotti

Let me start by saying: I really liked the recipe this week! Huzzah! Really, my enjoyment of this week’s recipe comes as such a relief. I was starting to get a complex, because I feel like every week I’m a Bad Attitude Bear. It’s all, “I wanted to like this recipe, buuuut…whine whine whine.” And…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Cinnamon Crème Brûlée

Yes, this is a story about baking. It’s about crème brûlée, and how to make a fine, fine batch of cinnamon-flavored custard. But mostly it’s a love story. I am speaking, of course, about the love between a girl and her brand-spankin-new Bernzomatic Fat Boy propane blow torch. Because, you see, there is only one…

Snickerdoodles of Lust

I have a shameful confession: I have been watching the new 90210 show. This is especially embarrassing because not only is it lowest-common-denominator teenybopper trash, but it’s not even well done trash. Whereas some teen shows can be defended because they provide an endless stream of over-the-top soapy action and questionably awesome fashion, 90210 is dead dull….
