Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate-Mocha Marbled Bundt Cake

Monday, March 29



Yes, I know. This is Monday, not Tuesday. I'm not crazy (not in this example at least.)

Clementine Tian (Daring Bakers' Challenge)

Saturday, March 27



The 2010 March Daring Baker’s challenge was hosted by Jennifer of Chocolate Shavings. She chose Orange Tian as the challenge for this month, a dessert based on a recipe from Alain Ducasse’s Cooking School in Paris. This refreshing layered dessert consists of a pâte sablée with clementine marmalade, lightly flavoured whipped cream, clementine segments, and a clementine caramel sauce (shown below.) I chose to use clementines in place of oranges because I love them and there were all I had in my refrigerator.

Orange and Chocolate Chip Muffins

Thursday, March 25



The final birthday of March and my dessert offerings have bottle necked their way down to muffins.

Tuesdays with Dorie: Dulce de Leche Duos

Tuesday, March 23



Once more, with feeling.

The recipe for these cookies is the only one from the book that I have been slightly disappointed with.

Black & White Cookies

Sunday, March 21


I love Seinfeld. No matter how bad the day is going or how many perfectly timed synchronized slow drivers I get stuck behind when I'm running late for something ( where is that huge Montey Python foot when you need it?)

Brown Sugar Pineapple Cake with Penuche Frosting

Thursday, March 18


March is a busy month for me. It's the birthday month of several friends and my sister. What comes over people in June?

Baileys & Crème de Menthe Brownies

Tuesday, March 16


I promise, the green filling in these brownies is all from the crème de menthe, I have not backed out of my vow to avoid food colouring (with the exception of red velvet cake and that time when I was 5 and wanted to be a blonde.)

Soft Dark Chocolate and Blueberry Tart (TWD)


I know. The pictures are all shot from the same angle. I'm not sure why, and it wasn't an issue until I uploaded them and realized how un-artistically uniform they appear, as though they're in a police line-up.

Brown Butter Snickerdoodle Bars

Friday, March 12

brown butter snickerdoodle bars with butterscotch sauce


Since I played around with the original recipe by adding various ingredients, including a sauce, I tried to come up with a compact, Mini Cooper name for these bars that was also inclusive of all the components.

Cook's Illustrated Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie

Wednesday, March 10



Ok, I think the plan is to post a chocolate chip cookie at least once a month (I hope you are not getting sick of them.) I always think I've found 'the recipe', but there are far too many creatively obsessed bakers who keep coming up with a new trend in c.c.cookies.

Blueberry and Apricot Almond Thumbprints (TWD)

Tuesday, March 9


These cookies are fabulous. I loved everything about them. From their jewel toned eyes to their lacy dressing of powdered sugar.

Gingersnaps with Lemon-Ginger Cream Filling

Thursday, March 4



When I was little, the movie Watership Down gave me nightmares. At the time I was too young to have read the book, but my super-cool babysitter happened to be watching it on television (maybe so she could skip the book.)

Mini Toasted-Coconut Lime Custard Tart (TWD)

Tuesday, March 2


Rum, coconut custard, and fluffy whipped cream. All that was missing was the lime and private cove from a Maxfield Parrish painting. The lime was easy to incorporate. The weather here is wet, slushy, and muddy so the sea side sunset wish would have required a lot more rum than I was willing to ingest.

Tiramisu (Daring Bakers' Challenge)

Monday, March 1



'I'm late, I'm late for a very important date
No time to say "Hello", "Goodbye"
I'm late, I'm late, I'm late, I'm late'
