Almond Apricot Cake

Tuesday, April 5, 2011

30 Comments

I am in love with almond flour. I discovered almond flour during the holidays while trying to find a way to make some low-carb cookies and cakes for my father.  Not all almond flour is created equal.  There are some brands available in the grocery store that have a very gritty texture which I do […]

Chocolate Banana Bread

I’m a bad baker. Over the weekend I discovered, much to my shock and horror, that I had run out of butter.  It does not happen often and I actually buy two or three pounds at a time as to have plenty on hand at all times.   When I do run out I usually […]

Jam Filled Banana Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting

Oh how I love overripe bananas. I do not often have them, we are prolific banana eaters in my house, but when I do I like to bake them into breads and cakes.  So does my husband, so it typically works out pretty well for everyone.  This time around I was thinking about peanut butter […]

Oh baby, it is COLD outside! The Dallas area, and most areas in the Mid-west, are enduring what I am unofficially calling ‘Ice-pocalypse 2011′. Around the Evil Shenanigans homestead the temperatures hovering around 15 F, while ice and gusty winds have made travel and work nearly impossible.  When I get cooped up indoors during this […]

Chocolate Chip Banana Blondie Cake

Once again, a culinary accident has become something beautiful. I set out, the other evening, to make some chocolate chip banana blondies.  One thing led to another (as they usually do while baking) and what emerged from the oven was … light and fluffy?!  Filled with despair, since these were not the chewy bars I […]

Forget the resolutions … I’ll take a muffin! It is a new year and rather than plague myself with empty promises about how I will eat better and work out more I decided to kick off the new year with a fragrant chocolate studded muffin.  Muffins make a great breakfast, are always good to give […]

The end of the year is rapidly approaching, and it is time to plan those New Years Eve parties! This year, like every year, I will spend the evening with my family before returning home to ring in the new year with my husband and dogs.  It is our little tradition.  My mom serves the […]

The holidays have officially arrived, and I’m in the mood for something both naughty and nice! It is also time for another Project Food Blog Challenge.  Thank you, thank you, thank you all so much for helping me get this far!  I never imagined I would be participating in Challenge 8, and I am humbled […]

If you grew up in the Southern part of the United States then you are probably familiar with gooey butter cake. You might also know it from Paula Deen on The Food Network who has made a cottage industry out of the dish, going so far as to sell countless varieties of them on QVC.  […]
