Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate-Mocha Marbled Bundt Cake

3/29/10



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

Clementine Tian (Daring Bakers' Challenge)

3/27/10



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

3/25/10



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

Tuesdays with Dorie: Dulce de Leche Duos

3/23/10



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

3/21/10


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

3/18/10


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

3/16/10


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

3/12/10

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

3/10/10



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)

3/9/10


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

3/4/10



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)

3/2/10


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)

3/1/10



'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'
