Is a six year hiatus too long to come back from?  I guess you’ll have to tell me, as this is my first post in about that long.  It is a sorry excuse, but all I can say is life happened.  Work got busier.  The “Little Prince” was joined by another “Little Prince” and then …
I recently came across a recipe for peanut butter chocolate banana muffins that sounded like they were right up my alley.  Loads of chocolate and creamy peanut butter and calling them muffins meant I could eat them for breakfast!  It doesn’t get much better than that so I printed the recipe and gave them a …
Lightly adapted from Jacques Torres’ Chocolate Mudslide cookies.  These delectable morsels don’t know whether to be a cookie or a brownie.  The cookie “dough” is very loose and greatly resembles brownie batter until after it rests.  Like any good brownie recipe, there is proportionately very little flour in these cookies and a whole lot of …
Prince Charming and I both love coconut and chocolate so the moment I came across this recipe on  Two Peas & Their Pod I knew it belonged on my must bake list (that makes me sound much more organized than I am; mostly I just keep multiple browser tabs open on my computer for online recipes …

Maybe you’re just getting …
I think I am still recovering from the Little Prince’s birthday celebration – or more accurately, from the preparations for the celebration – but I wanted to share a few shots of the completed cake. (If you’d like more detail on the recipes used and early preparation take a peek at the test run from …
We are celebrating the Little Prince’s second birthday this week (or as he so charmingly states “‘Appy birfy-day now peez!”) which means a busy time of gift buying and wrapping, party planning and prepping and, of course, cake baking. Last year I took the plunge and created my very first solo birthday cake.  As I …
Well, it appears I have this disappearing act down pat; I don’t even need to practice, I simply need to be too busy (or lazy) to sit in front of my computer and write up new posts to share with you. The truly sad thing is that I have so very much to share! Anyone …
