Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

Layers of moist, rich chocolate cake. Cream cheese in the peanut butter frosting to cut through some of the richness. A peanut butter fudge ganache. I first made this Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake for Alex’s birthday 7 years ago. We had a party, fed it 

Yeasted Banana Sandwich Bread

Yeasted Banana Sandwich Bread

This sandwich bread – Yeasted Banana Sandwich Bread – is the bread that I make the most. I first made it in 2011, and again in 2014 for Bread #39 of my 50 weeks of bread challenge. It was the first loaf of bread I 

Chocolate Truffle Cake

Chocolate Truffle Cake

What if I told you that you could make a delicious flourless chocolate cake with very little fuss? That if you bungled the recipe, it would still be delicious? That, my friend, is this Chocolate Truffle Cake. No separating eggs, no electric mixers necessary. It’s 

Triple Cinnamon Scones

Triple Cinnamon Scones

Despite the years that have passed since I first wrote about these Triple Cinnamon Scones, I had never forgotten about them. They were that good. Although the recipe has been on my blog for the last 7 years, I wasn’t thrilled with my write-up. Back 

Ricotta Pound Cake

Ricotta Pound Cake

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
