Tuesdays With Dorie: In Which I Invent A New Word

[Editor's Note: I've been feeling like a TWD slacker recently. Life has been so hectic, I've had to skip a week here or there, and I haven't been able to visit and comment on everyone else's blogs like I've wanted to. Apologies and air kisses all around! With vows to do better, it is onward...

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.

Ladies and gentlemen, I have finally found the solution to all of life’s ills. I present to you: WORLD PEACE cookies World Peace Cookies…

TWD: Chocolate Gingerbread Cake

Gingerbread this week! Yesssss! Was I alone in doing the fist-pump over this one? (Sometimes I feel like I’m the only person in the world who actually likes gingerbread cake. Seriously, mention it to people and they kind of grimace at you and mutter things like “sticky” and “molasses bomb.” Now I know how the…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Surprise! Your Berry Cake Fell!

So, about that genoise recipe. I think I speak for all of us when I say: %$&*@~&$!!! I made the cake recipe twice, can you believe this was the “good” one? It seems like everyone had problems with this cake sinking dramatically. Someone on the TWD board wrote Dorie and got a reply stating, basically,…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Spicy Cornbread Muffins

This post could be subtitled: In Which The Author Suffers A Case of Blog-Writer’s Block. I’ve put off writing this entry most of today because I can’t think of any clever or interesting ways of approaching it. People, I am on a strict New Year’s-inspired diet and exercise plan. All of my mental energy is…
