Tuesdays with Dorie

TWD: Date Nut Loaf

date-bread-2

Why yes, don’t mind if I do. Dates are one of those foods that I was convinced I hated, probably because of their visual association with prunes–oh, I’m sorry, dried plums. Yeah, good luck with that rebranding, prune industry. Anyhow, I was certain that they were sticky and gooey and gross and I didn’t like…

TWD: Chocolate Biscotti

chocolate-biscotti-alt2

I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, and first moved down to southern California to go to college. I was adamant that northern California (or “NorCal,” for the obnoxious) was the superior side of the state, and I would never devolve into a southern California beach bum who wore cutoffs everywhere, read Us…

TWD: Caramel Pot de Creme

TWD stands for Thursdays with Dorie, right? I have been doing way too much blogging for money and not enough blogging for myself lately, which: a)first world problems, anyone? and b) shut up, me. But it is disappointing and frustrating to have to put my favorite hobby on hold. I can’t even remember the last…

TWD: Oatmeal Nutmeg Scones

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. I am pleased to present a very special Poetry Edition of Tuesdays with Dorie. *polite applause* There once was a food called a scone With oatmeal and nutmeg alone In looks it was simple Bumps, crags, and a-dimpled But the taste could make a man moan!

TWD: Brown Sugar Bundt Cake

Back in my pre-blogging days, when I was a young idealistic lass, I thought that when I had a food blog, I would bake yummy foods and take pictures of them and write about how yummy they were. My eyes sparkled with naivete and hope. Ah, foolish youth. Instead, what I mainly write about is…

TWD: Chocolate-Orange Marbled Loaf Cake

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: Cinnamon Ice Cream Tart

This week’s TWD recipe, for a Coffee Ice Cream Tart, can be divided into two categories: things I did differently, and things I wish I’d done differently. In the “Things I Did Differently” camp, we have the ice cream itself. Instead of doctoring up store-bought coffee ice cream with ground almonds (??) I made my…

TWD: Honey-Nut Brownies

Things You Should Know About Honey-Nut Brownies 1. They sound like a delicious breakfast cereal 2. They look and taste more like a honey cake than a chocolate brownie 3. They are much improved by a thick layer of fudgy chocolate-sour cream frosting 4. There is nothing in the world that is not much improved…
