Tres Leches Cake

Tres Leches Cake

I made Alton Brown’s Tres Leches Cake several years ago, and liked it more than I expected. When I decided to have a small Cinco de Mayo party this year, I wanted to try the recipe from Smitten Kitchen. (Or maybe I had a Cinco de […]

Fudgy Butterscotch Bars

Fudgy Butterscotch Bars

These are butterscotch blondies with a layer of fudge in the middle. That’s really all the description you really need to be convinced to make these.

Lemon Bars

Lemon Bars

It’s spring, and one of the most cheerful and spring-like things I could think of to take to a recent party was the Lemon Bars recipe from Smitten Kitchen. I’ve made them before, but years ago, and I didn’t have the recipe actually written here […]

Our baby is one month old! Recently my life has been changing diapers, nursing, and napping. It’s a good thing that I stocked my freezer with meals and all the bread I made last December, because we’ve gone through just about all of it. I […]
