These Oatmeal Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies are a quandary for me. I dreamt up the recipe one day and decided to just bake it up without looking at any other recipes in books or online. Once I’d made the dough, which I felt was pretty standard in texture and tasted good too (yes, I taste […]

I make no secret of my love for all things Disney. When you’ve worked for the Mouse, you either form an intense, life-long bond, or never want to set foot on Disney property again. I fall in the first camp, whole-heartedly. In college, I got the opportunity to go on the Walt Disney World College […]

You’ve had beer bread before, right? This mind-blowingly simple recipe means you can have fresh baked bread to go along with your favorite chili, soup, or stew in the same time it takes to make them. Yeasty flavors develop without the need to rise because they’ve already fermented in the beer. Genius. If you’ve read […]

I have to say that butternut squash muffins aren’t something that ever occurred to me before. But, faced with one from our weekly CSA that sat on the counter for at least two more, I knew something had to happen. Most people would immediately think soup, but I’m a weirdo.

You all know that recently I went home to Texas to be with my dad and family while he underwent open heart surgery. I’ll tell you, nothing makes you want to bake for others more than (stress) and sheer gratitude for the care they’re giving your sick dad. When I decided I’d bake a cake […]

There’s not much my husband likes better than tiramisu. I don’t know what it is… the silky mascarpone, the decadent coffee and rum (or wine), or the chocolate. Or maybe it’s how they all sing together in perfect dessert harmony. One thing’s for sure, tiramisu is his favorite dessert, bar none. Even given a choice […]
