Tuesdays With Dorie: Translucent Maple Tuiles

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

This week’s Tuesdays With Dorie recipes was Translucent Maple Tuiles, chosen for us by Clivia of Bubie’s Little Baker. I’ve been eyeing this recipe for as long as I’ve had Baking: From My Home to Yours, so I was very happy to have an excuse to bring cookies into our increasingly low-carb life. Most of […]

French Fridays With Dorie: Hachis Parmentier

Friday, October 22nd, 2010

Oh, this was good. This was really good. We love shepherd’s pie around here, and I’ve made a lot of different versions. This was definitely up there with the best of them. That probably had something to do with the whole milk and half-and-half and butter in the mashed potatoes, and the two kinds of […]

Bacon Cheese Pork Roulades

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

We went away a couple of weeks ago (yay Tim!), and right before we left Ben and I were at the library. (Stay with me; there’s a point.) Ben grabbed a book called Planet Barbecue!: 309 Recipes, 60 Countries by Steven Raichlen. I said, “Ben, we’re never going to use that.” And he said, “I […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Coffee-Break Muffins

Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

I really, really loved the batter for these. I always love batters and doughs, usually more than the finished product, but this was special. Really good. The muffins? Eh. Not so much. They were wonderful warm, but at room temperature they were kind of blah. (Which, oddly, is the opposite of what Dorie says in […]

Pancakes! (And a Special Guest Blogger!)

Monday, August 9th, 2010

Ben did something cool this morning, and I made him write about it. I’m such a mean mom. Herewith, my second-born: I’m writing this post because this morning, I made pancakes. But not just any pancakes — special pancakes. They feel like popovers, but they aren’t. I made one with toasted coconut, the flavor of which […]

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: 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 […]

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: Creamiest Lime Cream Meringue Pie

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

I really haven’t been posting much lately; I just haven’t had time to cook anything interesting all summer (apart from my Tuesdays With Dorie recipes, of course). I will try to do better now that it’s cooling off out there. I almost passed on this week’s TWD; I’m just not a huge fan of most […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Tribute to Katharine Hepburn Brownies

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

Tuesdays With Dorie has a new logo, a particularly snazzy one designed by Lisa of Surviving Oz. (And someday maybe I’ll manage to get it onto my blog.) As a reward, Lisa got to choose this week’s recipe, and she went with the very yummy-sounding Tribute to Katharine Hepburn Brownies. We had these a week […]
