Luscious Lemon Bars

Tuesday, December 29

These tiny bursts of sunshine were one of the first recipes I placed on my blog and I thought it would be nice to revisit them again as the new year approaches.

Streusel Coffee Muffins with Maple Glaze | une gamine dans la cuisine

I hope my fellow Tuesdays with Dorie bakers will forgive me for making a recipe which hasn't been chosen yet. If it helps my case any, I did *doctor* it up a bit and add a few twists...and I will still make these in their true form once the recipe pops up. It's just that I have been craving muffins the last several days and these had been calling to me every time I picked up the book, you see. Yes, I know, I am weak. But I can't say that I have any regrets about these bountiful splendid muffins!

Dorie's Favorite Pecan Pie (TWD)

Tuesday, December 22

I love love Love pecan pie. Almost as much as I love my Queen of the piedom world, Key Lime. I know, they are at two opposite ends of the flavour spectrum so why are they both ranked so high?

Dark Chocolate Turtle-Scotch Brownies

Monday, December 21

Fresh off the heels of my homemade caramel obsession, I decided to try my skills at the easier to make, yet just as sticky and irresistible, butterscotch sauce.

Cinnamon Bun Shortbread Cookies

Saturday, December 19

Have you ever craved for a cinnamon roll but did not have the patience to wait for rising dough?

Peanut Butter Brownies with Caramel Frosting

Thursday, December 17

Sometimes last minute decisions can actually turn out quite well. Take for example these brownies and disregard all those impulse clothing purchases I made which still hang in the closet with their angry looking tags still hanging from them like monetary albatrosses.

Caramel-Apple Crisp

Tuesday, December 15

I made this delectable crisp a little bit over a month ago when I was still basking in the remnants of Autumn. Oh Autumn, how I already miss you. Why am I always in full mood for a specific season after it has already past by?

Salted Caramel Brownies

Monday, December 14

It's a sad day when one cannot find a stash of nuts in my cupboards. It could even be considered an omen, though I happened to love black cats, ravens, and walking under ladders to spite fate. The truth is my cash is wiped out.

Soft Ginger Maple Cookies

Friday, December 11

The original recipe for these cookies from allrecipes has been so raved about and highly rated by everyone that I finally decided to try it. My results didn't look anything like the cookies pictured in the post but I can see why people are crazy about them!

Fudgy Peppermint Frosted Cookies

Chag Chanukah Sameach!
For as much as I dislike the cold and snow, I must admit that when I woke up this morning to a crystallized, fluffy white fantasy land, it made me feel wonderful.

Brown Butter Fig Nut Blondies with Eggnog Buttercream Frosting

Tuesday, December 8

I really had a hard time coming up with a name for these bars because there are so many ingredients inside which should be stated in the title (I need to come up with a better naming system.) The more I read it, the more I realize that it sounds very long and a bit annoying.

Lemon Sabl├ęs (TWD)

It feels good to be back into the swing things when it comes to Tuesdays with Dorie. My posts were few and far between last month due to computer issues and lack of money. There were some gorgeous looking and expensive (as far as ingredients) desserts which I hated to miss but plan on trying as soon as the season is over and I can actually save some extra money for supplies.


Sunday, December 6

For as much as I love baking, this was the first time I made snickerdoodles. The recipe for these cookies is so simple, so effortless, and I was afraid that I would somehow mess it up and in turn, never want to bake again.

Toasted Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Friday, December 4

Oh no. Another chocolate chip cookie recipe. And yet another fruitless effort by a blogger to sound apologetic about that fact. What can I say that hasn't been said already? Chocolate chip cookies, like a pearl necklace, will never fade away into a long forgotten fad.

Dark Chocolate Mocha Spice Brownies

Thursday, December 3

Have you ever had such an intense craving for dark chocolate anything that it actually puts you in a bad mood until you did something about it? When this happens I usually will pacify the evil sirens call with a small square from my 'stash' of chocolate. But sometimes, especially when I am stressed, One square is just a drop in the ocean of my deep craving.
