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 …
Here we are on another Tuesday, I’m not sure where the last week went.  I was really looking forward to having the day off of work today and being able to bake the TWD assignment actually on Tuesday.  It turns out that I haven’t truly had the day off (the ability to work from home …
Having just returned from my honeymoon late Sunday night, I wasn’t sure if I was going to return to TWD this week or not.  Then I saw that the recipe selected by Piggy of Piggy’s Cooking Journal was one that I had never tried before – rugelach.  I decided I was up for the challenge …
The honeymoon is over and it is time to get back to life as usual, which means it is time to resume posting here (one of the good things about coming back!). This wedding cake turned out to be quite the saga of triumphs and tregedies.  I wish I had been able to chronicle it …

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 …
It’s that time again; Tuesday is here along with another installment of Tuesday’s with Dorie.   This may be my last TWD post for the next two to three weeks; starting on Friday all of my baking motivation and drive will be focused on making my wedding cake as perfect as my mother and I are …
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 …
Today’s TWD recipe was selected by Tammy of Wee Treats by Tammy and I can’t thank her enough for her choice.   This recipe is right up my alley and I could hardly wait to get started on it. For the second week in a row I found myself lacking the appropriate hardware for the recipe, …
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 …
