Welcome to the final TWD installment of 2008.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season; I know I am!  I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to participate this week since I am still out of town visiting family, but my mother graciously permitted me to take over her kitchen …
I had every intention of posting this a little closer to Thanksgiving, I planned to post it on Friday, which then got postponed until Saturday and I’m not entirely sure where Sunday went.  I think we all know what they say about “good intentions” and “best laid plans” which is why I’m here on Monday …
Every year around this time I find myself going through the exact same thing.  I go to store after store looking for the Heath toffee baking pieces (the ones without the chocolate), only to be disappointed at every stop.  I used to be able to get them easily; they were in the baking aisle of …
Two things have recently come to my attention: 1) I haven’t actually shared a recipe with you in about a month 2) My last few posts haven’t had very much (if anything) chocolate in them I simply cannot permit this situation to continue.  This recipe not only rectifies both issues but it satisfies every craving …
We have a winner! After the disappointment of the Deep Dark Rich Chocolate Fudge cake, we had to scramble to try out new recipes.  Would you believe we got lucky with the very first one we tried?  This recipe is adapted from one that I found on Epicurious.  I was a little hesitant to try …
If you remember, in my first post I said I would be sharing my trials and tribulations as well as my successes on this blog.  Despite the absolutely divine sounding name of this cake, it unfortunately does fall into the “trials and tribulations” category. First, I’d like give you all a little bit of background …
I know what you’re thinking: “No chocolate? And it isn’t even dessert??”  What is the world coming to?  The fact of the matter is that no matter how much I wish otherwise I cannot live on dessert alone (don’t think I haven’t tried!).  And if I can’t live on dessert alone, there is simply no …
I posted the full recipe for these muffins in anticipation of getting this post up, however, my day job then became my day and night job, neatly preventing me from doing much of anything else (as I’m sure “Prince Charming” would unhappily attest to if you asked him).  I’ve decided not to let that happen …
Cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts and it is also one of my favorite recipes to play with.  I have made cheesecakes with apples, blueberries, chocolate, caramel, peanut butter, white chocolate, butterscotch, toffee…and the list goes on.  However, until today, I had not made a cheesecake with coffee. As a general rule I’m not …
I originally created these brownies as a crust for my Triple Chocolate Mocha Cheesecake.  I wanted something that would add to the mocha flavor and, while I positively adore a good graham cracker crust I am not quite as fond of the chocolate cookie crumb crusts.  I have used a number of brownie recipes as …
