Operation Baking GALS (and Guys!)

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

Susan over at She’s Becoming DoughMESStic had the idea to get a few blogging bakers to send yummy things to her cousin’s unit in Iraq. Apparently, she underestimated the willingness of this slice of the blogging community to bake for a good cause (or a bad cause, or, really, no cause at all). The one-time […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Summer Fruit Galette

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

I’m back! This week’s recipe is Summer Fruit Galette, chosen by Michelle of Michelle in Colorado Springs (she has the recipe if you want to try it for yourself). Once again I have to admit that #1 Son did the honors, cutting the recipe in half and making a lovely half-circle of summery, fruity goodness. […]

Happy Birthday to Me

Monday, July 28th, 2008

Days ago I promised photos of the cupcake #1 Son made me, and I failed to provide them. Herewith I remedy that situation. He made pecan pie cupcakes from a recipe he found here. As it turned out, nonstick cooking spray is not enough for these babies — they need the little paper cups. Only […]

Tuesdays with Dorie: Not This Week

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008

Sadly, there will be no TWD post here this week. We sent #2 Son off to summer camp on Sunday, and with all the commotion and hullaballoo there was just no time for cherries and rhubarb. But stay tuned — I’ll be back next week. And if you want to see lovely photos of Cherry […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Chocolate Pudding

Tuesday, July 15th, 2008

This week’s recipe is Chocolate Pudding, chosen by Melissa of It’s Melissa’s Kitchen (you can find the recipe there). I have this to say to Melissa: Thank you, thank you, a thousand times thank you. (And check out all the other TWDers here.) My family has a recipe for chocolate pudding. We make it five […]

My Second Tuesday: Double-Crusted Blueberry Pie

Tuesday, July 8th, 2008

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was Double-Crusted Blueberry Pie (courtesy of Amy of South in Your Mouth, where you can find the recipe). I don’t like blueberry pie (or any other kind of fruit pie), but the rest of my family loves it. And I don’t like rolling out pie crust. So I delegated […]

More Dorie!

Friday, July 4th, 2008

This would, I guess, be Wednesday with Dorie, but let’s keep that among ourselves. We (Husband, #1 Son, #2 Son, #1 Son’s Girlfriend, and I) were going to an outdoor concert the other evening for which I was making a picnic dinner, and I thought “Where better to look for a dessert recipe than my […]

Pear Cheddar Scones

Tuesday, July 1st, 2008

This is my first Tuesdays with Dorie post, the raison d’etre for Confectiona’s Realm. I’m so excited! Dorie’s recipe is for Apple Cheddar Scones, but I didn’t have any dried apples. I did have dried pears, so there we are. I love making scones for breakfast, because I can mix all the dry ingredients the […]
