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 …
Despite the very young age of my blog I am already getting inundated with spam comments.  I would much rather read the real comments from all of you without having to filter through and moderate a multitude of spam comments.  So, I decided to add a Captcha image to the comment form.  I know they …
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 …

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 …
I’m getting this posted a bit later than I intended today, but it is still Tuesday (if only for a little while longer).  TWD is one of the things that inspired me to begin my own blog, so I am very excited to be making my first TWD post.   This week’s recipe is crème brulée …
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 …
