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 …
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 …
