TWD: Banana-Coconut Ice Cream Pie

This week’s Banana-Coconut Ice Cream Pie was a bit of an odd duck for me. I think a large part of my problem was the name. It had me expecting lush tropical flavors, but then the chocolate ice cream kind of stole the show and overwhelmed everything else. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that…)…

THE MOUNDS BROWNIE. YES, IN ALL CAPS.

It’s April, so Coconut Month may technically be over, but that doesn’t mean I have to quit the white stuff cold turkey, does it? This past week I made a recipe I’ve been dreaming up in my head for awhile now: the Mounds Brownie. (Similar recipes may exist, but I couldn’t find one that sounded…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Coconut Tea Cake

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe features…wait for it…COCONUT! What a perfect recipe to finish up coconut month! And on the subject of coconut, I know we’re all entitled to our opinions, yadda yadda politically correct lip service, but seriously, what’s up with the coconut haters? Are you sure you guys have really tasted coconut?…

Coconut Macaroons

Today’s recipe is another one appropriate for Coconut Month– “Coconut Month?” you ask. “What is Coconut Month, and how can it be coconut month if the last two posts have had nothing to do with coco–” Shh, shh! Don’t worry your pretty little head about that. And don’t interrupt. It’s rude. AS I WAS SAYING,…

Milk Chocolate Cremeux with Coconut Sorbet

This may sound odd coming from a sugarphile, but I don’t usually order dessert when eating out. I eat so many sweets at work and at home as it is, I feel like it has to be really worth it for me to spend my dining-out calories on more dessert. But when the husband and…

I Decree It Is Coconut Month + 7 Layer Bars

Halfway through emptying my third bag of shredded coconut this past week, my tiny reptilian brain began to glimpse a theme in this month’s baking. Coconut-Chocolate Tiramisu. Coconut Cream Tarts. Could the common thread be red velvet cake? Licorice whips? Monkey pantaloons? No, no, and NO, that’s not it…perhaps coconut? Yes! There has been a…

TWD: Coconut Cream Tart Mad Libs

Sometimes I feel like my Tuesdays with Dorie posts get a little predictable. Maybe it’s to be expected, when you bake something from the same cookbook every week, there’s bound to be some repetition and overlap of sentiment. But it really struck me as I went to write this entry that I have said it…

Daring Bakers: Chocolate Coconut Tira-wheee!-su!

I’ve been something of a Daring Baker’s slacker these past few months. Not to bore you with whining, but it’s been busy, none of the challenges have appealed to me, yadda yadda boo hoo hoo. But that all changed this month, when I learned that the challenge was tiramisu. Whoooo, I LOVE me some tiramisu!…
