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. […]

French Fridays With Dorie: Marie-Hélène’s Apple Cake

Friday, October 29th, 2010

I’ve been part of the Tuesdays With Dorie group for two and a half years (!) now, and I’ve noticed something about Dorie’s recipes: They often call for rum. Every single time a recipe has called for rum, I’ve panicked, because I never have it — and because I’m always baking at the last minute […]

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 […]

French Fridays With Dorie: Spicy Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup

Friday, October 15th, 2010

Or something like that. I had a plan. The plan went something like this: I would take a day away from the freelance editing that has consumed the past week of my life and get something accomplished around the house. I would run errands — including grocery shopping, hunting and gathering what I needed to […]

(My First!) French Fridays With Dorie: Gerard’s Mustard Tart

Friday, October 8th, 2010

So this is my first French Fridays With Dorie post (we were away last week). I’m so excited — our recent carb reductions have limited my Tuesdays With Dorie posts this year, which has made me very sad. But now there’s real food! Food I don’t have to feel guilty about! Yay!!! French Fridays With […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Double Apple Bundt Cake

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

I couldn’t pass this one up, despite the fact that we just got back from vacation (very late Saturday night) and that we don’t eat carbs anymore. I mean, apple cake? Double apple cake? No chance. So while I was at the grocery store Monday (yes, that’s yesterday) afternoon, I looked for apple butter. 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 […]

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 […]
