TWD: Honey Nut Brownies

I have always had a thing about cakey cookies…and by “thing” I mean I don’t like ‘em,  I like cookies that are crispy and chewy. I guess I also have a thing with brownies too. I like the crackly top, somewhat dense, maybe fudgy and gooey kind of brownie. So, without seeing a picture of … Continue reading

TWD: Double Apple Bundt Cake

WOW! My turn to host!! I a) never thought it would come up, at the rate we are powering through this book, and b) figured that if it did, I would be left with the last recipe that (GASP) no one else wanted to make. Wrong on both accounts! I love ALL things apple, and … Continue reading

TWD: Lots of Ways Banana Cake

I don’t like bananas. I know, that might make me weird, but I just don’t like them…in fact periodically, I will try one again just in case I was wrong the first hundred times (I do this with olives too), but it turns out that I never am. I am not alone, I realize there … Continue reading

TWD: Dressy Chocolate Loaf Cake

My first thought as I began to make this week’s TWD recipe was, “Thank heavens for air conditioning!” The DC area has had a string of 90+ degree days with humidity off the charts – weather in my book that does not necessarily scream for baking, much less baking something rich and chocolate. But, like … Continue reading

TWD: Swedish Visiting Cake

Three words: Easiest. Cake. Ever. Seriously, I read on other blogs about recipes that are “perfect for unexpected company showing up” and I inevitably look at them and think that before I would spend what would probably take me an hour or two in the kitchen “whipping up” something while my guests sat around, I would … Continue reading

TWD: Coconut Tea Cake

Yes, I DID put the lime in the coconut. :-) But, of course, I still cannot comment on the taste. It smelled delish for sure (and I love, love, love any excuse to rub citrus zest into sugar…just divine), and instead of making it into one big pan, I did two loaves so that I … Continue reading

TWD: Milk Chocolate Mini Bundt Cakes

It’s been snowing here in good old Northern Virginia. A lot. Or, I should say, a lot more than it usually does. Which, as I’ve mentioned before, means nothing good…no one can drive in it, the streets take days to plow, blah blah blah. Anyhoo, enough complaining. On the bright side of the snow is … Continue reading

Thanksgiving Part 3: The Perfect Pumpkin Cake

Alas, my third and final Thanksgiving post before I start loading up on those of the holiday cookie variety! I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned before that I love pumpkin. Pumpkin scones and muffins and donuts and bread, and even the savory varieties in things like ravioli and soup. But somehow I never fell in love … Continue reading
