I am celebrating! Aside from making it into the 3rd round of Project Food Blog – thank you all for your votes! – I am celebrating the release of a new book by my favorite fiction author, Deanna Raybourn.  Her Lady Julia series, set in Victorian England, feature the exploits of Lady Julia and private […]

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Is there anything better than a well made pound cake? Pound cakes are highly satisfying and wonderfully versatile.  I’ve served pound cake for dessert with whipped cream, I’ve served them with fresh berries for breakfast to great acclaim, and nothing beats pound cake for an after work/school snack.   Pound cake can also be the base […]

Orange Chocolate Stout Cake

I love beer. I know, not exactly shocking if you know me.  So many of my recipes are born of the odd craving, and this one is no different.  One afternoon, during a particularly stressful day at the office, I found myself craving a nice, stout beer.  I was also thinking how nice a slice […]

Japanese Shortcake Jelly Roll with Chocolate Whipped Cream

I spend a fair amount of time shopping in Asian markets. I love the fresh produce, meat and fish.  The whole experience is an adventure for me as I discover new ingredients, flavors and snacks.  One of my favorite discoveries are Japanese Cake Rolls.  They are soft sponge cake filled with a delicate layer of […]

Blueberry Crumb Muffins

All too often blueberry muffins are a disappointment. Blueberry muffin recipes are often too dry, not fluffy enough, stained violet, or all the berries sink to the bottom.   The struggle for the perfect blueberry muffin led me through a gauntlet of unhappiness and bad muffins, but I am happy to report that I won the […]

When I’m feeling under the weather I tend to hibernate and stay out of the kitchen.  Once I begin to feel better I get the itch to bake. If you follow me on Twitter (@BakingBlog) you know that I caught a nasty bug last week and it knocked me out for about four days.  Now […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Bundt Cake

I love bundt cakes! I think it is the fact that they could go right out of the pan and need little more than a glaze, or a dusting of powdered sugar, to be ready to serve.  Growing up we used to have bundt cakes at most family gatherings.  At some point they fell out […]

Chocolate Mousse Cake

Often simple desserts are better than complicated ones.   That is not to say that the flavors are simple.  What I mean is that the dessert itself is made of only a few very well constructed components.  This mousse cake is an example of this.  Tender cake fluffy, rich mousse, and a light dusting of powdered […]
