It seems like every week Tuesday arrives more quickly – here it is again and most of the past week is a hazy sleep deprived blur. But despite my sleep deprived state I found the time and energy to make Beryl’s (of Cinemon Girl) pick: Toasted-Coconut Custard Tart on pages 344 and 345. I have …
This week’s recipe was chosen by Kait of Kait’s Plate? – My Best Chocolate Chip Cookies from page 68 of Dorie’s Baking:  From My Home to Yours. I positively love chocolate chip cookies and I’m afraid I have to disagree with these being the “Best.”  It’s not that they are terrible, it is hard to …
Let’s hear it for yet another chocolate recipe! This week Tanya of Chocolatechic chose Rick Katz’s Brownies for Julia on page 91 of Dorie’s book.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I have ever had a brownie that I truly didn’t like.  There are brownies I don’t love, and brownies I feel …
Welcome to this week’s installment of TWD !  This makes 3 weeks in a row for me (after my somewhat unexpected month long absence); which might just mean I’m back on track again.  Of course, it is pretty easy for me to stay on track when my fellow bakers seem to be on a chocolate …
This week we have Steph of Obsessed with Baking to thank for choosing Cocoa-Nana Bread on page 46 of Dorie’s book.  I’m sure you’ve seen me write (over and over again) on this blog that chocolate and fruit should never be combined – but as the old adage goes, there is an exception to every …
First – apologies for my unannounced (and unplanned) disappearance for the past month-ish.  I did make the pecan pie back in December (actually I made it for Thanksgiving and it was wonderful), but we left town the day the post was due and I never got around to posting it in all of our travel …
With all my holiday baking this week I find myself right down to the wire for my TWD post (not that a last minute post is so terribly unusual for me, but I’m taking a break from baking for a few moments to get this posted before midnight).  This week Macduff of The Lonely Sidecar …
This week Barbara of Bungalow Barbara selected sablés from pages 131-133.  As I was rather pressed for time this week, all I can say is I’m glad these are so quick to whip up!
The final recipe for this month (for me anyway) is Chocolate Caramel Chestnut Cake chosen by Katya of Second Dinner.  I decided to take advantage of the leniency in the TWD posting rules for this month, and this week in particular, so that I could have this beautiful cake on my Thanksgiving menu. I very …
I think November is my favorite TWD month.  Our November hosts go out of their way to pick holiday friendly recipes and I really enjoy the more free form structure of being able to bake/post the TWD assignments for the month in whatever order I please. “Prince Charming” and I decided we would start out …
