Tuesdays with Dorie

TWD: Brrrrrownies

Oh, it has been a day. A day mostly consisting of me making like a Tasmanian devil in my kitchen, trying to get ahead on work for the candy site and a few other side projects because–dum dum DUM–we’re moving in less than 2 weeks! Aaaaaah! (Spoiler alert: the new kitchen is SO much bigger…

TWD: Tarte Noire

Forgive me, readers, for I have sinned. It has been a week since my last confession. For this week’s TWD recipe, the tres chic Tarte Noire, I confess that I did not make the ganache filling the recipe called for. Instead, I used some ganache I had left over from these Honey Truffles. The honey…

TWD: Non-Rum Non-Drenched Vanilla-Cherry Cakes

This week’s TWD recipe was for “Rum-Drenched Vanilla Cakes,” described as a pound cake soaked with vanilla-rum syrup. Now that’s all well and good, but I’m not a drinker, so I had to find something to replace the rum in the recipe. We’ve had a lot of amazing cherries around the kitchen lately, and I…

TWD: Dressy Chocolate Loafcake

This week’s TWD recipe, Dressy Chocolate Loaf Cake, got me all excited. It’s pretty much the fanciest-sounding dessert I’ve made all month. How fancy did it sound? I put on my finest petticoat and my leather kid gloves just to read the recipe. I gave myself a crink in the neck practicing holding my snooty…

TWD: Tender Shortcakes

This week’s TWD recipe, tender shortcakes, could not have come at a better time. Look at these beauties I picked up over the weekend: We drove up to Yosemite recently, and one of the only benefits of the long drive through rural central California is passing fruit stands with beautiful, inexpensive fruit. We got masses…

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…)…

Apple-Apple Bread Pudding (MY PICK!)

Today is a banner day, my friends! Today is the day that we baked my chosen recipe for Tuesdays with Dorie, the online baking group I belong to. If you’re not a member of this group, please understand that this is a Big Deal. There are approximately five bajillion members (give or take a kablillion)…

TWD: Burnt Sugar Ice Cream

I have just 3 letters to describe this week’s TWD pick, Burnt Sugar Ice Cream. O.M.G. Now obviously, this stands for Oh-so-delicious Mind-blowingly Good Or, judging by the tasty puddle rapidly forming underneath all my ice cream scoops, despite hours of chilling and lightening-quick scooping, it stands for Outrageously Melty & Guzzle-able Yes, we absolutely…
