Clementine Darling Tart with Chivalrous Chocolate Crust

Thursday, April 29


Yes, Anastasia.

Clementines don't seem to get the attention they so richly deserve. I admit that I love lemons and limes, but I also think that their reserved cousin should have her day in the sun.

Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate Chunkers

Tuesday, April 27


I'm 31. That isn't old, right? Well, please tell that to my contact lens-ravaged eyes. Since I'm as near-sighted as Mr. Magoo, I tend to over wear my contacts to the point that I feel useless without them. Last week I spent 3 minutes talking through the bathroom mirror to what I thought was my cat.

Best Cocoa Brownies

Tuesday, April 20


Have you ever felt, for no apparent reason, as though something big was about to happen? I don't know why, but there seems to be something looming on the horizon. I say looming because I'm not sure yet if it's a good thing, the clouds are retaining a soft air of ominousity, but that could just be the over-thinking realist in me.

Tuesdays with Dorie: Sweet Cream Biscuits



Thanks to a french father and an east coast mom, I can make almost-perfect dessert crêpes rolled up with lemon juice and sugar and a scrumptious butterscotch tart. But I never had the pleasure of learning how to make biscuits.

Tuesdays with Dorie: Swedish Visiting Cake

Tuesday, April 13



A huge Thank You to Nancy of the blog, The Dogs Eat the Crumbs, for hosting this weeks Tuesdays with Dorie. I think a lot of us have been waiting patiently for someone to chose this recipe. Why? Because of Dorie Greenspan's mouthwatering description.

Peanut Butter Cookies

Saturday, April 10


Depravity, thy name is peanut butter.

It's quite difficult to find a recipe for peanut butter cookies. They're as rare as tip-accepting hair stylists and Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia ice cream.

Supernatural Brownies

Thursday, April 8



Before I started a food blog, this was my favourite brownie recipe. With all the caramelized, cream cheesed, and frosted versions that were made, I'd almost forgotten about these darlings.

Lime Glazed Coconut Shortbread

Tuesday, April 6



This is going to be a pseudo Tuesdays with Dorie post. The actual recipe was supposed to be a Coconut Tea Cake but at the last minute I realized that I didn't have any coconut milk, and I was out of rum (I plead the fifth on that one.)

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Shortbread Bars

Thursday, April 1



These bars remind me of the wealthy, spoiled cousin of peanut butter Twix candy bars. If I were a peanut butter Twix candy bar, I would secretly hate these bars.
