Tuesdays with Dorie

TWD: Double Apple Bundt Cake, Drenched in Deliciousness

If you were around these parts for last week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, you may recall some apple-pickin’ shenanigans that resulted in a half-bushel of apples taking up residence in my kitchen. Yes, my friends, they are still with us. [looks guiltily in the direction of the kitchen, overflowing with apples] Fortunately I’ve had a…

TWD: Apple Tarte Fine

I made this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, a slender apple tart with puff pastry, and it was oh so good. But the real story belongs to the humble apples that went into the tart, and where they came from.

TWD: Summer Peach Upside-Downer

The house I grew up in had a wonderful backyard full of fruit trees, including two peach trees that produced pounds and pounds of peaches during the summer months. I took this for granted, in the way that children do, and didn’t appreciate the blessing of having so much fresh, delicious, free fruit growing at…

TWD: Peanut Buter Crisscrosses

The last time I made peanut butter cookies, I was less than impressed with the results.

So I was definitely ready to try a different peanut butter cookie recipe for this week’s Tuesdays with…

TWD: Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

Shortbreads aren’t the kind of cookies I usually crave. I guess they have their place at the side of a coffee cup, but given the choice, I’ll always opt for good old chocolate chip cookies. So as I was dutifully making these cookies, I was already scheming about who I could gift them to–what unsuspecting…

TWD: Oatmeal Breakfast Bread

Whew! Whadda day. Everything about this Tuesdays with Dorie post snuck up on me, from the actual baking of the oatmeal breakfast bread to the posting of this here very blog post. Apologies, but I was busy doing very important things like making the world’s largest Tootsie Roll: Whadda Roll. Aaaaaanyhow, back to the oatmeal…

(gotta have that exclamation mark) chose Chocolate Ganache Ice Cream for this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe. If you’re not familiar with Katrina, quit reading now–but please do come back–and check…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Carrot Cake Cookies

Huzzah! After a week of frantic unpacking leisurely opening a box or two at a time, the new kitchen is finally in workable condition. The best part is, it has a big window and enough room for a wee table on which to take photographs, so there’ll be no more carrying food from the kitchen…
