Pear-Pistachio Tart and a GIVEAWAY!

Wow, did this tart smack me upside the head and surprise me. I am so not a pistachio person. I don’t hate them, but they’re low on my list of go-to nuts, and I can’t ever remember craving pistachios or pistachio flavored anything. And also, they’re green. What is that about?Imagine my surprise, then, when…

TWD: All-in-One Holiday Bundt Cake

Dear Inventor of the Bundt Cake Mold, What is the deal with all of the ridges? Why would you purposely create more nooks and crannies for my poor cake to stick to? If I wanted to spend an hour scraping cake from the inside of a pan and then painstakingly cleaning it with a toothbrush,…

Molasses Cookies and DSLR Camera Recommendations

Oh friends, I have a serious problem. My beloved digital camera, she of ancient years, scratched body, and pitiful megapixels, has finally bitten the dust. She has been on all my vacations, been present at weddings and funerals, and taken thousands of food photographs. A moment of silence, please. At first I was not too…

TWD: Apple Cranberry Crisp

This week’s TWD pick, Apple Cranberry Crisp, was just about perfect. Juicy chunks of Honeycrisp apples (my fave!), tart fresh cranberries, and a streusel topping packed with coconut and ginger. It practically screamed EAT ME. Yes, it was aaaalmost perfect… But it was missing something: That’s better! What’s a warm fruit crisp without a big…

TWD Brownie-Cherry Torte and DB’s Macarons, oh my

It has finally happened…the perfect storm of blog posting. Two of the baking groups I belong to, Tuesdays with Dorie and The Daring Bakers, have challenges that have to be posted today. As George Costanza would say, “worlds are colliding!” So rather than make 2 separate posts, today’s blog will be a super-duper-mega-big post about…

TWD: Allspice Crumb Muffins

These Allspice Crumb Muffins looked great, but they really, really did not work for me. And I love muffins! And I love crumb topping! And I love spices! I even added some diced pears to the batter to give it a nice fall, fruit-and-spice-and-everything-nice flavor. However, all the pears in the world couldn’t help these…

TWD: Mint and Chocolate Split-Level Pudding

Originally, I wasn’t going to make these split-level puddings. We’re not…how you say…pudding people around my house, and it seemed like a waste of time and energy to make something no one would really eat. But then, my friends, I had a vision. A vision of adorable mini pudding glasses filled with rich chocolate ganache…

TWD: Caramel Crunch Tart with Nougat Ice Cream

Hello, Snickers bar disguised as a fancy tart! I mean, that’s what this was, right? A crispy tart shell encased a fabulously dark caramel sauce studded with salty peanuts, topped by a rich chocolate ganache. Caramel + peanuts + chocolate = Snickery goodness. Of course, this tart was waaaay better than your common candy bar.I…
