Tuesdays with Dorie: Devils Food Wafflets with Chocolate Sauce

I’ve been neglecting my blog and Tuesdays with Dorie in recent months. We got married in April, have had a busy summer, and now we’re both back in school (plus us both working full time). It’s busy. But my husband’s company has been complaining about the lack of cookies and Tuesdays with Dorie is my…

#TheCakeSliceBakers- Lemon Buttermilk Sheet Cake

Lemon desserts are typically a slam dunk for my family and this cake was no exception. I made this prior to a family gathering and it went over VERY well! Even better, simple to make from baking and pantry staples I keep stocked in my house and it was easy to throw together! “The Perfect…

#TheCakeSliceBakers- Old Fashioned Chocolate Layer Cake

This cake came with perfect timing! Fathers day for my father in law and my hubby’s birthday. Perfect birthday cake and celebration cake for a family of chocolate lovers! This cake came together beautifully- in only a few hours with some chill time. Perfect layered cake for a busy weekend. This cake is from the…

#TheCakeSliceBakers- Cream Cheese Coffeecake

This caught my eye immediately. Who doesn’t like cream cheese filled cakes and pastries?! Although, I do admit, I took a slightly different turn for serving and it’s interpretation. I left off the topping- I didn’t have almonds, but had full intentions of subbing with another nut… and then I completely forgot about it until…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Mocha Ricotta Puffs

I’m not new to the game of adding ricotta cheese to cookies- there’s a family ricotta cookie recipe hereĀ  that dates back a few generations and is by far the most used page of a family cookbook that spans multiple generations. I happened to have whole milk ricotta in the fridge, so that was an…

Baked Sunday Mornings Vanilla Marshmallows

I made these back in January for my bridal shower dessert table. They were wonderful! I love making marshmallows and the brilliantly white fluffy product that results! This recipe was no exception. Everything went very smoothly. I did swirl in some pink food dye to the tops of these before they set.

Creative Cookie Exchange: Lemon Ricotta Cookies

Cookies for breakfast! Crazy, I know.. but actually, muffins, scones, cinnamon rolls are all baked goods and really don’t vary that much from cake and cookies. Around here, any leftover baked good is typically a good option for breakfast! This cookie has another story though. I come from a very Italian family, and we’re just…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Sebastian’s Remarkably Wonderful Brownies

So I have a favorite brownie recipe. They’ve been proclaimed best brownies ever eaten by family members and friends… and then I made Sebastian’s Remarkably Wonderful Brownies. The other brownie recipe? Has big competition! Needless to say, we really enjoyed these. And so did my fiance’s entire office- lots of compliments! This recipe is featured…

King Cake- #TheCakeSliceBakers

The Cake Slice Bakers have a new book for 2018! I’m very excited that we will be baking through The Perfect CakeĀ from America’s Test Kitchen! The book will be released on March 27, 2018, but we were very lucky to have the opportunity to bake from this book prior to release. Thank you America’s Test…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Chunkers

All I can say is WOW. These were good. All chocolaty, with a tang from dried cherries and a crunch from the nuts. I think these Chunkers are going to make another appearance this month- scaled down to bite size for the dessert table at my bridal shower! Thank you, Dorie, for another fabulous recipe…
