Here we are, Tuesday again and I’ve somehow managed to scrape together the time to make this week’s TWD challenge (that was in doubt for a time this weekend) –  Soft Chocolate and Raspberry Tart on page 354 chosen by Rachelle of “Mommy? I’m Hungry!“.  As I’m sure you are all well aware by now, …
This week Mike of Ugly Food Dude selected Thumbprints For Us Big Guys on page 164.  I can’t say that thumbprint cookies have ever been a favorite of mine, but I was looking forward to giving these ones a shot.  Primarily because cookies are nicely portable and easy to share with my co-workers whom I …
It seems like every week Tuesday arrives more quickly – here it is again and most of the past week is a hazy sleep deprived blur. But despite my sleep deprived state I found the time and energy to make Beryl’s (of Cinemon Girl) pick: Toasted-Coconut Custard Tart on pages 344 and 345. I have …
I’m sad to say the TWD chocolate streak has come to an end; it appears that there is no chocolate in sight until the middle of March (unless I make a few tweaks, which I just might!). This week’s TWD assignment was selected by Michelle of Flourchild.  She decided on the Honey-Wheat Cookies from page …
This week’s recipe was chosen by Kait of Kait’s Plate? – My Best Chocolate Chip Cookies from page 68 of Dorie’s Baking:  From My Home to Yours. I positively love chocolate chip cookies and I’m afraid I have to disagree with these being the “Best.”  It’s not that they are terrible, it is hard to …
Let’s hear it for yet another chocolate recipe! This week Tanya of Chocolatechic chose Rick Katz’s Brownies for Julia on page 91 of Dorie’s book.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I have ever had a brownie that I truly didn’t like.  There are brownies I don’t love, and brownies I feel …
Welcome to this week’s installment of TWD !  This makes 3 weeks in a row for me (after my somewhat unexpected month long absence); which might just mean I’m back on track again.  Of course, it is pretty easy for me to stay on track when my fellow bakers seem to be on a chocolate …
This week we have Steph of Obsessed with Baking to thank for choosing Cocoa-Nana Bread on page 46 of Dorie’s book.  I’m sure you’ve seen me write (over and over again) on this blog that chocolate and fruit should never be combined – but as the old adage goes, there is an exception to every …
First – apologies for my unannounced (and unplanned) disappearance for the past month-ish.  I did make the pecan pie back in December (actually I made it for Thanksgiving and it was wonderful), but we left town the day the post was due and I never got around to posting it in all of our travel …
With all my holiday baking this week I find myself right down to the wire for my TWD post (not that a last minute post is so terribly unusual for me, but I’m taking a break from baking for a few moments to get this posted before midnight).  This week Macduff of The Lonely Sidecar …
