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 …
Firstly, thank you to Laurie for relaxing the rules this week; allowing us to post Vibi’s (La casserole carrée) apropos selection after our Thanksgiving feasting.  How much more perfect could the recipe assignment for the week of Thanksgiving be than a pie that has Thanksgiving in its very name? This week we are making Thanksgiving …
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 …
Welcome to the latest installment of Tuesday’s with Dorie.  This week’s recipe is Arborio Rice Pudding selected by Isabelle of Les gourmandises d’Isa. After my difficulty with last week’s recipe I was pretty excited about Isabelle’s choice – I’ve made pudding before, I can do this! I was also very interested in the “black” rice …
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 …
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 …
