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 …

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.  …
