I have seen any number of posts around the blogosphere recently touting the perfect chocolate chip cookie.  While some of them are repeats of recipes that I’ve seen before, many of them are subtle variations made in an effort to achieve perfection.  Which, of course, leads to the question: How does one define the perfect …
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 …
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 …
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 …

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 …
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 …
I originally created these brownies as a crust for my Triple Chocolate Mocha Cheesecake.  I wanted something that would add to the mocha flavor and, while I positively adore a good graham cracker crust I am not quite as fond of the chocolate cookie crumb crusts.  I have used a number of brownie recipes as …
