Spiced Dark Chocolate Soufflé

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

23 Comments

I love things that look difficult but are in fact quite easy. Soufflé is one of those desserts that people assume is terribly difficult to make.  I think it goes back to cartoons and movies where someone is making a soufflé that comes out tall and perfect only to have it collapse in spectacular fashion.  […]

Breakfast Bread Pudding

What happens when you combine breakfast and dessert? Answer: Magic!  I had actually been contemplating the breakfast/dessert idea for a while.  What spurred me into action was the email from the folks at FoodBuzz to let us know that Nature’s Pride would be holding their Bread Ambassador program again.  Nature’s Pride will select a few […]

Peach Cream Pie

I recently went on a road trip to Hot Springs, Arkansas. One of my road trip rules is to find off-the-beaten-path places to eat.  I prefer to eat where the locals eat, since they often have the most unique, and tastiest, food.   Why eat at a chain place, or, even worse, a fast food window?  […]

Not long ago I had lunch at a little Lebanese restaurant and I discovered some really wonderful new dishes. One of these was shawarma, a meat mixture that is marinated in a spice blend, placed on a spit, and slowly grilled.  It is sliced thin and served with pita and other fresh garnishes.  It is […]

Coconut Mango Rice Pudding

What do you do when you have a mango approaching over-ripeness and a half a can of coconut milk? I don’t know about you, but I turn it into rice pudding!   Mango and coconut are a perfect flavor match.  I love, for example, chunks of ripe mango with some toasted coconut scattered over the top.  […]

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 […]

A few weeks ago my husband and went to see the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies.    You know, the one hit wonders from the 90′s?  They were playing at the House of Blues in Dallas and I could not resist. I love swing music so much I even took swing dancing lessons in college.  We decided to go […]

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love old family recipes.  I also love cookies. My mom makes some pretty fantastic oatmeal cookies.  They are my grandmother’s recipe, handed down on a butter stained note card, and they are lovely.  Crisp throughout with a hint of cinnamon and a lovely nubby texture makes them instantly craveable.  They are mom’s go-to cookie and the most […]
