Raspberry Kumquat Sugar Cookie Cake

This cake owes its existence to the fact that I’m completely superficial. When I was planning out the Flourless Chocolate Cake I posted a few days ago, I decided I wanted to add some orange flavor to the chocolate, and I had to have some sort of citrus accompaniment to tie everything together. What can…

Flourless Chocolate Cake

You may or may not be aware that Passover starts this Friday. I don’t celebrate Passover in any religious sense, but I do celebrate chocolate-covered matzoh, coconut macaroons, and flourless chocolate cake, so I have a soft spot in my heart for this holiday. Let’s talk about flourless chocolate cake for a moment. There are…

Lime-Coconut Pie

When we last met, I was torturing you with atrocious teenybopper/internet meme song lyrics. Considering that history, and taking into account the fact that I am making a superhuman effort to avoid any “put the lime in the coconut” jokes with this pie post, I think I deserve some snaps, don’t you? Thanks very much….

Cranberry Orange Bread Pudding

Happy weekend-after-Thanksgiving! I hope you’re all lolling around in food comas, surrounded by Black Friday detritus and eating abominable turkey-stuffing-green bean-pumpkin pie sandwich creations. Me? I’m doing all of the above, and finishing it off with a bit of cranberry orange bread pudding, made with leftover Thanksgiving rolls and cranberry sauce. Three cheers for holiday…

Ahhh it feels good to be back in the warm embrace of Tuesdays with Dorie. I’ve taken more than a few weeks off lately, and although it was necessary, it’s so nice to be back in a routine, blogging with some of my favorite people! Fun fact: this week’s recipe, a Marbled Loaf Cake, looks…

TWD: Citrus Cranberry Sunshine Muffins

Citrus sunshine muffins, you say? I’ve got your sunshine right here: Well, okay, that’s not so impressive. But you have to believe me that it’s been very sunny and downright hot here the past few days! The perfect weather to pair with these bright and cheery muffins:

Pink Grapefruit Cake

Hey, remember that time I had all those oranges and grapefruits, and begged for citrus recipes? You guys had some awesome ideas, and I dutifully bookmarked them and printed them and planned on a whopper of a Citrus Month…and then ate almost all of the fruit raw. Grapefruit for breakfast, sometimes two or three oranges…

TWD: Outrageously Good Orange-Chocolate Bread Pudding

Few things make my heart pitter-patter more than bread pudding. Done properly, it’s one of my top 5 favorite desserts. (Done wrong, it’s borderline inedible, but I don’t like to think about such scary things so close to bedtime.) This week’s TWD recipe was for Bourbon Bread Pudding, but being a teetotaler, I made a…
