Tuesdays With Dorie: Chewy, Chunky Blondies

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

Oh, yum. That’s pretty much my post for this week’s installment of Tuesdays With Dorie. It really encapsulates my feelings about these little nuggets of joy, and the feelings of everyone I shared them with. So thanks for stopping by. Oh, OK — I’ll be more specific. I made these a couple of summers ago, […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Brrrr-ownies

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

Back in December when it was my turn to pick the recipe, these brownies were way up near the top of the short list. But Dorie talks about how good they are on a steamy summer’s day, and so I sadly left them for someone else to choose. This week, Karen of Welcome to Our Crazy […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Chockablock Cookies

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

And now, a very special guest blogger! Hi, I’m Ben. This week, I made the Chockablock Cookies, and everyone who tried them (except my mom) liked them. I didn’t have many takers because a lot of people don’t like molasses, but those who do liked them. We didn’t have any coconut or regular molasses, so […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Coconut Tea … Muffins

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

Before I start this post, I have to mention that this is my 101st post here at Confectiona’s Realm. I never thought I’d get this far, but it’s been a great ride. Thanks to all of you who read my blather. I’m back to Tuesdays With Dorie. I can’t live without some carbs in my […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Dulce de Leche Duos

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

I know, I know. And I’m sorry. There’s been no baking here for weeks. Heck, there’s been almost no eating here for weeks. It’s tragic. And yet, I have lost 12 pounds since the beginning of the year, and Tim has lost 40. It’s hard to argue with results like that. But I made these […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Cocoa-Nana Bread

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

I was pretty excited about this bread: Chocolate is almost always good (as long as it’s not cheesecake!), and I can live with bananas in bread. I actually have a pretty amazing banana bread/cake recipe from the inestimable David Lebovitz, which is healthy enough when made with whole-wheat flour and walnuts that I don’t feel […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Chocolate Oatmeal Almost-Candy Bars

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

It’s my week! I’ve been baking along with the Tuesdays With Dorie group — most weeks — for about a year and a half, and the day has finally come for me to choose this week’s recipe. I went through the book, Baking: From My Home to Yours, by Dorie Greenspan, and put sticky notes […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Low and Lush Chocolate Cheesecake

Tuesday, December 29th, 2009

Looks like cheesecakes are becoming a December TWD tradition, and I still don’t like them. But I made the Tall and Creamy Cheesecake last year, and I made this one too. My family loves cheesecake. I made this cheesecake as one of two desserts (the other being apple cider doughnuts, which I must post about […]

Daring Bakers: Gingerbread House

Thursday, December 24th, 2009

The December 2009 Daring Bakers challenge was brought to you by Anna of Very Small Anna and Y of Lemonpi. They chose to challenge Daring Bakers everywhere to bake and assemble a gingerbread house from scratch. They chose recipes from Good Housekeeping and from The Great Scandinavian Baking Book as the challenge recipes. We’ve been […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: My Favorite Pecan Pie

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009

I love this pie. There, I’ve said it right up front, so there’s no mystery to this post. Sorry. I made this pie for Christmas and fell in love with it. I am now going to make this pie for every Thanksgiving and Christmas for the rest of my life. The coffee! The cinnamon! The […]
