Cookies the (Very) Old-Fashioned Way

Sunday, March 6th, 2011

So, some of you may have noticed a dearth of posts in the past couple of months. Also, some of you may know that Tim lost 90 pounds last year by following what’s called the primal way of eating. These things are not coincidental in any but the most literal sense. Although I lost 30 […]

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 […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Peanuttiest Blondies

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

Oh, yes. I love Tuesdays With Dorie. This week’s recipe, chosen for us by Nicole of Bakeologie, is a modest little number, a peanut butter blondie with chocolate chips. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? But they’re the crack of the cookie world. I don’t even like peanut butter cookies, so I wasn’t expecting much from this recipe. […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Peanut Butter Crisscrosses

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

Oh, God. I love cookies, almost all of them. (Well, not those ones with candied fruit in the middle.) But I’ve never liked peanut butter cookies — they’re always dry and kind of pointless, in my experience. But these are fantastic. (Thank you once again, Dorie.) I made two batches, one straight and one with […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Espresso Chocolate Shortbread Cookies

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

I don’t know why I wasn’t terribly fond of these: I love coffee, chocolate, and shortbread. The combination should have been fantastic. To be fair, I made them for my older son’s going-away party, and they had some competition. I also made Dorie’s World Peace cookies (with a combo of chocolate chips and mint chips […]

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: Sablés

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

Sablés, shortbread — call it what you will, it’s yummy. This week’s TWD cookie (oh, I love it when it’s cookies!) was the French version of my beloved Scottish shortbread, and honestly, I think I liked it better. (I’m sorry, Scotland!) Dorie gives a basic recipe and then suggests several variations. I combined two of […]
