Chocolate Oat Bars

Chocolate Oat Bars

I first had something like these Chocolate Oat Bars at the Lafayette Square farmer’s market in St. Louis. They were amazing. Hearty yet decadent. I adored them. I first made this as recipe #116 for my 365 Recipe Challenge back in 2010. I hadn’t made…

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Since I keep getting zucchini in my CSA, I knew I had to revisit this chocolate zucchini cake recipe. Amelia usually won’t eat zucchini, and there’s only so much zucchini that Alex and I can eat (although it is great grilled). So savory dishes were…

Vegan Orange Cupcakes

Vegan Orange Cupcakes

For the longest time, I searched for an orange cake that was as bright and citrusy as I thought an orange cake should be. 4 years ago, I finally found it. These orange cupcakes (or muffins – call them what you will) are loaded with…

Double Chocolate Caramel Chip Cookies

Double Chocolate Caramel Chip Cookies

I’m addicted to these cookies. One of my resolutions for 2019 was to try a new or different cookie recipe each week. Well, I’ve given it up. I can’t stop making (and eating) these Double Chocolate Caramel Chip Cookies, which are perhaps my favorite cookie…

Double Chocolate Scones

Double Chocolate Scones

Recently I’ve had the urge to remake my recipe for Double Chocolate Scones. And not just because they’re incredibly delicious.  Perhaps some of it is that they’re made with a substantial amount of whole wheat flour. It was a happy accident that led to this…

Homemade English Muffins

Homemade English Muffins

I love English muffins, but it had been too long since I’ve made them. When I made apple butter last fall, I decided that I had to make them again – nothing else would do.

How to Freeze Cinnamon Rolls (and Other Bread and Breakfast)

How to Freeze Cinnamon Rolls (and Other Bread and Breakfast)

I love freshly baked, homemade cinnamon rolls. Particularly for breakfast, in the actual a.m. What I don’t like so much is getting up early enough to make cinnamon rolls from scratch. But guess what – I can make those cinnamon rolls in advance and bake…

Cranberry Oat Pecan Scones (or Christmas Scones)

Cranberry Oat Pecan Scones (or Christmas Scones)

In my quest to make weekend breakfast more often this year, I’ve returned to making scones more often. This time, I decided to revisit the Cranberry Oat Pecan Scones that I made 8 years ago as my 367th and final recipe of 2010, when I…

Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Glaze

Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Glaze

I love cinnamon rolls – but only homemade ones. I’ve seen too many very dark cinnamon rolls in bakery cases, ones where I know that even reheating (who wants a cold cinnamon roll?) will not make it worth eating. So I love making them at…

Alton Brown’s Fruitcake

Alton Brown’s Fruitcake

I started making fruitcake for my extended family for Christmas in 2004 or 2005. I didn’t foist it on them; I only started making it after they told me, unprompted, that they liked fruitcake! I was thrilled to have an excuse to make it. Ever…
