TWD: Dimply Plum Cake

Ooooh, I’m just sneaking in this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, Dimply Plum Cake, chosen by Michelle of Bake-En. After reading through everyone’s notes, I was trying to figure out how I was going to make my approach slightly unique. I saw muffins, small loaves, and fluted pans. Hmmmm…then it dawned on me! My Baker’s Edge pan … Continue reading

Since it was introduced to me, I find myself checking it daily (as I do many other fabulous blogs out there!). My roommate saw this picture and said “I want … Continue reading

My Foray Into Squash: Spaghetti

It’s that time of year again, when every type of squash is spilling over on grocery store shelves. Although I love ALL fall foods, I must say my experience in actually cooking with them, especially squash, is limited. And by “limited” I mean I’ve never done it. Yes, I love butternut squash soup and lasagna with … Continue reading
