This week Barbara of Bungalow Barbara selected sablés from pages 131-133.  As I was rather pressed for time this week, all I can say is I’m glad these are so quick to whip up!
The final recipe for this month (for me anyway) is Chocolate Caramel Chestnut Cake chosen by Katya of Second Dinner.  I decided to take advantage of the leniency in the TWD posting rules for this month, and this week in particular, so that I could have this beautiful cake on my Thanksgiving menu. I very …
This week I decided to make the Cran-Apple Crisps selected by Em of The Repressed Pastry Chef.  I was rather excited about this one.  I love the cranberry apple combination and I really appreciated the idea of the individual crisps.
This week’s recipe, Sugar Topped Molasses Spice Cookies (pg 76-77) selected by Pamela of Cookies with Boys turned out to be quite the pleasant surprise.  Before I even made these cookies I told “Prince Charming” that I was sending them into work with him because I didn’t think I was going to like them. Why …
I think November is my favorite TWD month.  Our November hosts go out of their way to pick holiday friendly recipes and I really enjoy the more free form structure of being able to bake/post the TWD assignments for the month in whatever order I please. “Prince Charming” and I decided we would start out …
This week’s TWD hostess is April of  Short + Rose and she chose the Cherry Fudge Brownie Torte.  Unlike our lovely hostess I really prefer not to sully my chocolate with cherries (or any other kind of fruit for that matter).

Thanks to “Prince Charming’s” assistance with our new little prince, I’m finally able to make and post a TWD assignment – the first time in 3 months! Since I never know how long the little prince is going to sleep I’m going to try to keep this post short and sweet…
Well, more or less anyway. For those of you who don’t know, my roughly 3 month hiatus from this blog was due to the birth of my first child – a beautiful baby boy. Towards the end of my pregnancy I really didn’t feel up to baking and I wasn’t supposed to be spending any …
This is a truly rare event lately; I’m posting my TWD efforts for this week on time! For today’s recipe Karen of Something Sweet by Karen picked Applesauce Spice Bars on pages 117 and118.  I know there isn’t a lick of chocolate anywhere in this recipe, but I loved the picture in the book and …
