Apple Cider Doughnuts (Daring Bakers' Challenge)

October 26, 2010

Everyone has a weakness, something that has the power to break them in half like a #2 pencil. I don't eat fried foods very often, and I rarely ever prepare something for the sake of frying it. The reason behind this has less to do with health and more to do with the fact that I turn into a Hoover vacuum cleaner whenever it's within my radar.

Tuesdays with Dorie: (deconstructed) Apple Pie

This pie started out with such high hopes and unpretentious goals. It had all the potential of becoming the perfect, juicy, flaky-crusted pie of my dreams. And it was...up until I slipped it into the oven.

Lemon Sugar Cookies

Since this month's Tuesdays with Dorie recipes were deliciously Fall-themed, and a bit on the rich side of the comfort food spectrum, I developed a craving for something light and lemony ( shocking, I know.)

Tuesdays with Dorie: Caramel Pumpkin Pie

October 19, 2010

Is there anything that the assertive, toffee-like flavour of caramel can't fix? Honestly, I don't think there is. Take, for example, this recipe. I've never been a huge pumpkin pie fan, yet every year I give it another chance in the hope that my taste buds have matured enough to find the secret pleasure that other people seem to find within it's soft, squashy confines.

Ganache-Filled Peanut Butter + Chocolate Chip Cookies

Stuffed like a healthy string of crab pots, these cookies are ready to be off loaded straight into mouth harbor. And don't even bother to keep count, these are so rich, chewy and decadent, even Greenmitts will feel like they've hit the motherload with only one share. After the long grind of scoop, bake, and spread, you can relax with an ice-cold glass of milk, stare off into the distance, and think about the recipes yet to come.

Tuesdays with Dorie: Rustic Fold-Over Pear Torte

October 12, 2010

This week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was selected by Cakelaw, from the lovely blog, Laws of the Kitchen. Normally when following recipes, not having a picture to rely on only adds to the fun.

Salted Bittersweet Chocolate Chunk Cookies

October 8, 2010

I hesitate to use the word 'chunk' in my recipe titles because it makes me think of 'The Goonies." As an early 30-something, I love that movie!

Tuesdays with Dorie: Double Apple Mini-Bundt Cakes

October 5, 2010

A huge Thank You to Lynne, of Honeymuffin for picking the perfect Tuesdays with Dorie recipe to break in the month of October.

Sweet and Salty Cake

October 3, 2010

Layer cakes hate me. They never fail to foil my attempts at symmetry. No matter how much pleading and 'nice talk' that occurs between the satanic cake pans and myself, they always end up throwing me under the bus at the last minute.

Salted Peanut Butter Caramel Twix™ Bars

October 1, 2010

Happy October! ☼ It's either good or terribly annoying that I've just learned how to play with the numeric pad and "Alt" button. Who knew it could do more than add accents and make ♥'s?
