We’re working on new and exciting things here at Confectiona’s Realm — things that involve actual sugar! Stay tuned for further developments! Soon. I promise.

Tuesdays With Dorie: Honey-Wheat Cookies

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

Some of you may have noticed that I’ve been missing in action (well, out of action, really) for the past three Tuesdays With Dorie. (And last week I could have posted, because I’ve made the cookies before and even photographed them!) Three of the four of us are trying to lose weight, and one of […]

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 […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Café Volcanos

Tuesday, December 15th, 2009

I made these — I swear. I made them the same day I made the sablés, and I liked them a lot (although my family wasn’t so sure). But I didn’t write about them, and I can’t now; I’m on deadline. Really soon, though. I promise!

Tuesdays With Dorie: I Fail Yet Again

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

I did not make the Cottage Cheese Pufflets. I wanted to, but it was Rosh Hashanah, and I was making a holiday dinner that seemed to require an apple-based dessert. And the dessert I chose was amazing. But it wasn’t Cottage Cheese Pufflets. So go check out everyone else’s Cottage Cheese Pufflets, which are sure […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Coconut-Roasted Pineapple Dacquoise

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

This sounded great, even with the pineapple. I really wanted to make it. But I also had to make this month’s Daring Bakers challenge this week, and there was just no way to justify both. Go read about hundreds of versions of the Coconut-Roasted Pineapple Dacquoise on hundreds of other blogs, and come back Saturday […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Parisian Apple Tartlet

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

I forgot to buy puff pastry at the good grocery store. They didn’t have any at the bad grocery store. We didn’t have any yummy Parisian Apple Tartlets. But I guarantee you that there will be some amazing ones at the other TWD blogs, and Jessica of My Baking Heart will have the recipe. I’ll […]

No Tuesdays With Dorie: Chocolate Bread Pudding

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

Sorry — too much work, too much running around. No time or energy for the yummy bread pudding. Go read about everyone else’s bread pudding, and look at their lovely photographs. Stop back next week, when there will be (I hope!) a nice chocolate cream tart in this space.

Tuesdays With Dorie: Grandma’s All-Occasion Sugar Cookies

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

I have an oven again! My amazing father-in-law came to stay overnight (to attend #1 Son’s Civil Air Patrol promotion ceremony), and he fixed it right up for me. This week’s TWD recipe was for sugar cookies, and I was up in the air about whether or not to make them. I like my cookies […]
