TWD: Tarte Fine

What’s not to love about a super easy recipe that combines all-butter puff pastry and apples?! I will say the only downside is that it reeeeally doesn’t keep. At all. When Dorie says serve within an hour of taking it out of the oven, she really means it! So whereas our first taste of it … Continue reading

TWD: Coffee Break Muffins

I am already planning to make these again. 🙂 So super easy, a delicious coffee flavor (and cinnamon too as I may have OD’d a little on the cinnamon addition…yummm), perfectly and not overly sweet. Thanks, Rhiani for a fabulous choice!

TWD: Espresso Chocolate Shortbread Cookies

Espresso. Chocolate. Shortbread Cookies. What’s not to love, right? By the time this is posted, I will be in the early days of a lovely couple weeks in Spain. But I could not resist this recipe because, well, how can you resist ANY of those things much less ALL of them in combination?? Like Dorie’s … Continue reading

TWD: Oatmeal Breakfast Bread

Considering it has been riDICulouslyhot and humid in the greater DC area for the last, I don’t know, gazillion weeks, it was a little odd that I found myself craving oats. I’ve just had a hankering for oaty, oatmealy, cinnamony, crumbly baked goods. You’d think I’d be more about citrusy, summery, fruity things, but no. I … Continue reading

TWD: Chocolate Ganache Ice Cream

Only two words to sum up this week’s TWD experience. Stomach Bug. Man, my roommate is lucky…this stuff looks sooooooo good and creamy and delish. Perhaps it’ll stay for a few days and I can try it. Given, of course, that it isn’t devoured by then. Sigh. Check out Katrina’s blog for the recipe and … Continue reading

TWD: Brrrr-ownies

When I read this recipe, it sort of screamed winter/Christmas time to me – I always associate chocolate minty things with that time of year. So instead I swapped out chopped up Almond Joy bars, which sort of warrants a name change, seeing as the “brrrr” was no longer a part of the finished product. … 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: Raisin Swirl Bread

…better known this week for me as Cinnamon Swirl Bread. Just can’t quite bring myself to include those raisins! I’ll admit that I was a little overwhelmed when I read this recipe – I know that I am not alone in my general fear of anything involving yeast or for me especially, rolling out dough. … Continue reading

TWD: Tender Shortcakes

Yikes, when I logged in to post this weeks TWD recipe, I realized just how long it had been since I posted last. GASP. It’s not that I haven’t been baking/cooking because I have! I may be, um, just a little backed up in the blogging department. I’m back on it now though, thanks too … Continue reading

TWD: Quick Classic Berry Tart

I will confess that I am one of those people who has issues with pastry cream. I don’t know why really, it’s not like I’ve had a string of awful experiences with it. In fact, I generally stay away from all recipes that involve custards or creams or pudding-like things. But I’ve had mini-tarts like … Continue reading
