TWD: Tribute to Katharine Hepburn Brownies

Hrmmm. I have serious doubts about these “Tribute to Katharine Hepburn” brownies being an actual tribute to Katharine Hepburn. I mean, they don’t look a thing like her! How can you compare those dull chocolate squares to this dame? Check out her killer cheekbones. They just don’t make ‘em like they used to. Now HERE’S…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Perfect Party Cake

You know, I’m not the most obedient Tuesdays with Dorie baker. Sometimes I take liberties with an ingredient (or two, or three…) and I don’t always stay true to the recipes. But I like to think I have my priorities in order, and I follow the instructions when they’re absolutely necessary. So when Dorie ordered…

TWD: Coconut-Roasted Pineapple Dacquoise

In honor of this week’s TWD recipe, a coconut-roasted pineapple dacquoise, I have composed an original song. Sing with me now: If you like pina colada, and making egg white meringue and placing chunks of pineapple under an open flame, Even if fancy french dessert names tend to stick in your craw You will like…

TWD: Peach-Honey Ice Cream

I’m baaaaaack! Peru was amazing. We hiked the Inca Trail up to Machu Picchu: And visited various islands on Lake Titicaca, including these crazy floating islands made entirely of reeds: We explored the rainforest and saw way too many enormous insects and spiders, but also lots of cool stuff, like a whole family of capybaras!…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Parisian Apple Tart

I’m still in Peru. Holla! By the time you read this, I will have already hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu and will be in the Amazon, taunting piranhas and taming capybaras and hopefully not contracting malaria from mosquitoes the size of grapefruits. Good times! But of course I wanted to vicariously participate in…

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…

TWD: Chipster-Topped Brownies

I’m sure we were all thinking the same thing when we read the description of this week’s recipe, a bar cookie that combines chocolate chip cookie dough and brownies: “Toniiiiight is the niiiiight that two become oooone…” Don’t play coy. You were all with me on the Spice Train, right? [And also, I’m sure you’ve…

TWD: Mango Bread

Mango bread? Never heard of it! Apparently it’s a Southern thang. After making mango bread for the first time this week, I think it’s going to be a regular thing–sorry, thang–around my house from now on, because I totally dug it! Here are the main flavor components of mango bread: Yes, the dreaded raisins strike…
