Pecan Pie Cookies

Pecan Pie Cookies

I like pecan pie, but I don’t love it. Even at its best (and the pecan pie recipe I use turns out well whenever I make it), it’s a little too gooey for my taste. Pecans are my favorite nut, so I enjoy a slice, […]

Fudgy Bourbon Balls

Fudgy Bourbon Balls

I finally wised up and stopped making so many cookies and baked goods to ship to friends and family for the holidays. In 2015, I started making these fudgy bourbon balls as one of my food gifts. In every package I send, I give a […]

Maryland Fudge Cake

Maryland Fudge Cake

Every now and then, I come across the perfect recipe just when I am looking for it. Sometimes I see a recipe and think, “I should make that sometime.” Other times I come across a recipe and think, “I can make that tonight!” or “I […]

Nutella Cheesecake

Nutella Cheesecake

I was going to make something for a going-away party, and when I asked what the guest of honor’s favorite desserts were, her friends all said that she loved chocolate and peanut butter, Nutella, and the Brownie Cheesecake that I made last month. So it […]

Smoky Cashew Dip

Smoky Cashew Dip

It’s been longer than I’d like to admit since I last posted a recipe here. I haven’t stopped cooking. It’s simply that I hadn’t made much until December that I had to write about, and we all know how busy December can be. To motivate […]

Microwave Peanut Brittle

Microwave Peanut Brittle

As I was preparing to do my holiday baking and cooking, King Arthur Flour posted a recipe for Microwave Peanut Brittle. The recipe sounded perfect. I love making candy to gift for the holidays because it ships well and stays good for a long time. […]

Stollen

Stollen

For Bread 43, I made Stollen. I’d actually planned to make a different panetonne recipe than I have in years past (and not make this fruitcake or this fruitcake entirely), but with the move and holiday travel, I didn’t have a chance to plan my […]

Thai Chicken with Basil and Cashews

Thai Chicken with Basil and Cashews

I started buying a CSA box this year. I really like getting a variety of veggies, but it can be a struggle to figure out what to do with them, particularly when the farm has a bumper crop of the same vegetable each week. I […]

Applesauce Oatmeal Bread

Applesauce Oatmeal Bread

Bread, Week 10: I wasn’t sure what to bake this week. I was out of town over the weekend so I had no time to make yeast bread. I didn’t have ingredients (mostly bananas) for other bread recipes I had bookmarked. This Applesauce Oatmeal Bread […]

Almond Macaroon Torte with Chocolate Frosting

Almond Macaroon Torte with Chocolate Frosting

Valentine’s Day was a Friday this year, and I couldn’t bear the thought of going out to dinner with hordes of other people. I had no inspiration for dinner (we ended up buying steak and appetizers at Trader Joe’s), but I had decided earlier that […]
