Cranberry-Lemon Napoleons

11/29/10


Puff pastry, homemade cranberry sauce, and lemon pastry cream. What more can anyone ask for in life? (Okay, to be fair, I suppose chocolate lovers could throw in some ganache somewhere.) But really, these Napoleons are the stuff that sweet dreams are made of.

Raspberry Swirl Chocolate Chip Cookies

11/26/10



I hope that everyone had a safe, happy, stomach-filling, Thanksgiving! Ready for the holidays? I'm not. So far the spirit of the season has decided to make beeline away from me for now.

Tuesdays with Dorie: Cranberry Shortbread Cake

11/23/10


Now, finally at the age of early-thirty-something, I've matured enough to realize what all the fuss is about when it comes to cranberries. Thanks to this cake and the cranberry lime galette, I now crave, love, and worship the once too-bitter harbingers of holidays.

Almond Cream Éclairs

11/18/10


Making eclairs allowed me to practice making choux pastry, something I've not had the privilege of doing since the Daring Kitchen made croquembouche (my wrist, and 2 fingertips still bear the spun sugar and caramel scars.) Thanks again for that, pseudo Ove-glove. :P

Tuesdays with Dorie: Cranberry-Lime Galette

11/16/10



♫ Galette, the best a tart can get. ♫ Since joining Tuesdays with Dorie over a year ago, I have had my eye on this recipe. It's no secret that I love limes and all their relatives, but I've been waiting for something to turn me into a cranberry lover, and I think this recipe has done just that.

Nutella-Peanut Butter Pillows (revisited)

11/11/10


Since this is peanut butter lover's month, I wanted to take things full circle by returning to an old favourite. When I first started blogging, well over a year ago, this was one of my first recipes.

Chocolate-Peanut Butter Moon Pies

11/9/10



Hello, moon pies. Where have you been all my life (better yet, where have I been?) This late-blooming discovery can be traced back to the glorious plaid-uniformed days of grade school. My parent's version of a lunch box 'treat' was usually in the form of sliced carrots, peppers or, if I was lucky, a yogurt.

Cinnamon-Filled, Spiced Cupcakes

11/6/10



Today is a "comme si, comme sa," kind of a day. Right after my beloved camera died, I found another point and shoot on eBay. But, thanks to some mis-routing, it may not arrive until next week, or at this rate, next year (at least I know it's headed towards me.)

Tuesdays with Dorie: Peanuttiest Blondies

11/2/10



Happy Peanut Butter Lovers Month! (Is it bad that I know about this?)

These photos might be the last taken with my trusty, little Canon A430 camera. After two years, 200 blog posts, and far too many snaps than I can count, the camera began displaying the dreaded white horizontal lines, and blindly white out-put. Of course I'm in a bit of a panic. For food bloggers, not having a camera is like a musician giving a performance to an empty theater.
