I remember growing up there were three quick breads my mother made quite regularly; banana bread, pumpkin bread and zucchini bread.  Of the three, zucchini bread was far and away my favorite, I loved the moist slightly dense texture, the flavor with its hint of spice, but most of all I loved the crisp melt …
I must apologize for my unexplained and much extended absence; I feel like I’m just waking up from a chaotic whirl of a dream. It has just now come to my attention that my most recent post is from about 3 months ago! Completely inexcusable, so I won’t attempt to make any excuses (they would …
This week Janell of Mortensen Family Memoirs picked Caramel Pumpkin Pie on pages 322 and 323.  This is certainly a great fall recipe pick but I quite the internal debate about whether or not to make it.  You see, I always make pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving, sometimes even multiple pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving; I really …
This week we can thank Lynne of Honey Muffin for choosing Double Apple Bundt Cake (pages 184 and 185). I may have mentioned before (in fact I’m pretty certain I have) that the only fruit I really like in a dessert is apples so I was pretty excited to give this cake a try. Since I …
This week’s TWD recipe is Tarte Fine (page 315) selected by Leslie of Lethally Delicious.  Let me just reiterate, this week’s recipe is Tarte Fine NOT Tarte Tatin. I did read the recipe line up, I knew it was Tarte Fine this week.  And yet, somehow I found myself sorting through my oven safe skillets …
I mentioned in one of my TWD posts that I had made a special cake for “the Little Prince’s” first birthday celebration and promised pictures.  It is now a couple weeks after the fact, but I am very proud of my very first birthday cake effort so I still wanted to share. I actually had …
It is Tuesday evening again and here I am at 9:00 PM  just beginning work on my post which means that, as usual, it will just barely squeak by the deadline.  I really did intend to get to this sooner; I had the best of intention but you know what they say about good intentions.  …
This week Sabrina of Superfluous chose Cranberry Upside-Downer on page 206 of Dorie’s book.  Now, I’m not entirely sure how this could have happened, but it seems that this may be my very first upside down cake.  At least I can’t recall having made any variety of upside down cake before. I still have cookies …
This week Jasmine of Jasmine Cuisine selected Peanut Butter Crisscrosses on page 78 of Dorie’s book.  I thought these would make a nice extra treat for guests to munch on at “the Little Prince’s” first birthday party, so in the midst of making all the other food for the party not to mention the stress …
This week’s TWD is Espresso Chocolate Shortbread cookies chosen by Donna of Life’s Too Short Not to Eat Dessert First. I know it has been a couple weeks since I have posted; “Prince Charming” and I are moving into a new house and needless to say I’ve been a tad bit busy. We have painted …
