Cinnamon Pecan Swirl Monkey Bread

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

28 Comments

Happy Leap Day! February has been one bitch of a month for me personally, so to celebrate the end of it I decided to bake something really, really naughty.  I was inspired by monkey bread, a heavenly concoction of cinnamon sugar covered dough that is baked in a sticky brown sugar and butter sauce.  The […]

Chocolate Mint Filled Shortbread Snowballs

Get ready, I am going to get my whine on.  I know it is the holidays, but I am not feeling it. First off, my tree is 99% decorated.  I am afraid of heights, and my tree requires the use of a ladder to decorate the top.  I have not screwed up my courage (or […]

Salted Caramel Apple Pound Cake (And a Giveaway!)

When life gives you left-over Salted Caramel Sauce, I say make pound cake! With fall teasing us in the Dallas area, the temperatures are fluctuating between 100 and 80, I find myself feeling very domestic.  The cooler weather puts me in the mood to putter around the house organizing books, clearing out closets, and whipping […]

Chocolate Italian Wedding Cupcakes with Chocolate Sour Cream Frosting

These cupcakes were born of necessity. Originally this batch of cupcakes was intended to be a full fledged cake, but due to my rather appalling laziness the pans I had intended to use were dirty when the urge to bake struck.  When I say dirty I mean stuck on, needing a good soak, burnt on […]

White Chocolate Fudge Pie

You would think I would be over pies. It is true that after writing Everything Pie (due out in September and available for pre-order at the link to your right) I would never want to bake another pie again.  For a while that was true, but after a few pie-free months I noticed that I […]

Boy, has it been a LONG week … For the second time in three weeks I have gone AWOL, and I am sorry for that.  I was hoping that after my last bout of family related drama things would quiet down, but it was not to be.  Last week my father was feeling a little […]

Cornmeal Buttermilk Cake with Chocolate Buttermilk Frosting

I am the kind of person who appreciates texture. Texture is a make or break for me, particularly in food.  Example – I love the flavor of pears but the grainy, sandy texture is a real turn off.   On the other hand, a plain hamburger bun is fine, but sprinkled with crunchy little poppy seeds […]

Bock Beer Macaroni and Cheese

You can blame Twitter for this one … While tweeting yesterday with @KerrygoldUSA we were discussing macaroni and cheese.  Specifically, we were discussing the seasonality of the dish.  Some folks apparently feel that macaroni and cheese is a cool weather dish … only.  In my humble opinion, even if it is piping hot from the […]

Life is beautiful. Not to say it is not busy, because my plate is overflowing at the moment, but amid the hustle and bustle beautiful things have been happening.  First, I got to visit my best friend and her family in the UK where we had a lovely side trip to Wales.  Second, my brother […]

Pecan Chocolate Chip Gooey Butter Cake

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 […]
