Mini Pièce Montée (Daring Bakers Challenge)

By the burning of my thumbs, Something saucy this way comes.

Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate Ice Cream Tart

Tuesday, May 25


Hi. First of all, Lost. I'm not sure what to think. The ending was amazing but upsetting all at the same time. I'm still confused about some things but maybe it wouldn't be Lost if it didn't leave a few loose ends, even in the finale.

World Peace Cookies (revisited)

Friday, May 21


Normally I don't like to make something more than once. Baking is like an adventure and I like to keep myself moving along the terrain, not dwelling too long on any one thing, and certainly not backtracking.

Tuesdays with Dorie: Apple Apple Bread Pudding

Tuesday, May 18


This was one of the few Tuesdays with Dorie recipes that I was tempted to skip. I'm not a huge fan of bread puddings. They're usually too eggy and soggy. They remind me of a sponge cake that's been left out in the rain (isn't that from a song too?)

Coconut Lime Cupcakes

Saturday, May 15



A few posts ago, I think it was near the end of April, I mentioned that it felt as though something was about to happen. It was an odd sort of feeling which I couldn't quite put a finger on, but it was similar to the way the atmosphere feels just before a heavy downpour or storm.

Chocolate Ganache Ice Cream

Wednesday, May 12



Are you tired of seeing these tiny tea cups in so many of my posts yet!? I hope not. They are perfect vessels for ice cream snaps. The only other alternatives to these little cups are large cereal bowls or various wine glasses. The former is bad because I have to eat subject after the photo shoot...because it melts, And summer is about to pounce on me like an angry, the-vacuum-cleaner-just-moved, cat-like force.

Tuesdays with Dorie: Quick Classic Berry Tart

Tuesday, May 11



Did anyone else go through a Strawberry Shortcake doll phase as a child? No? What about My Little Pony? I used to force the dolls to ride the poor, pastel coloured equines. They also had tea parties with Transformers (I was a girly tomboy.)

Mad Hatter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Friday, May 7


What originally started out as a recipe for Alice Medrich's chocolate chunk cookies quickly began morph into a smorgasbord of past chocolate chip cookie posts.

Raspberry Pâtes de Fruits

Tuesday, May 4


"The red ones are mine."
Please don't let the name fool you. These tart little wedges are every bit as light hearted and satisfying as their bagged-up, store bought cousins.

Tuesdays with Dorie: Burnt Sugar Ice Cream



Look out bikini, Your wearer has discovered a way to make ice cream without an actual ice cream maker. And I thought that this would be one vice I'd never have to worry about falling for.

Key Lime Sablés

Sunday, May 2



My Cinco de Mayo may be spent serving on jury duty this year so I wanted to post about something light, tart, and sunny...just in case. I even have the Tuesdays with Dorie post all set to pop up at the stroke of midnight Tuesday morning.
