Apple Carrot Maple Cakes with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting

Wednesday, January 6, 2010

23 Comments

Nothing makes me happier than when I can combine two things I love into one thing I really love! I love apple cake and I love carrot cake.  While looking at some apples in the market I noticed carrots on sale also, and inspiration struck!  Why not combine the two?  Tart apples, sweet carrots, warm spices, […]

Peanut Butter Cinnamon Blondies with Peanut Butter Frosting

The other day I was craving blondies and peanut butter at the same time. It often happens that I get dual cravings, and in this case it was easy to satisfy both with these incredible tasty blondies.  To amp up the peanut butter flavor, and because I like a frosted blondie, I whipped up a […]

Spiced Chocolate Crinkles

There is something magic about a soft, chewy chocolate cookie. Crinkle cookies are an attractive addition to any platter of cookies.  I have a recipe that was given to me by a friend long ago which is lovely on its own, but you know me and my propensity to tinker.  Inspired by my Chocolate Spice […]

Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

On a recent trip to visit my Great Aunt Ruby I had the opportunity to copy down a few more family recipes. One of the recipes was for an oatmeal raisin cookie made with coconut and cocoa powder.  It sounded unique and I jotted it down to play with later.  Well,  later came sooner than […]

Fresh Pumpkin, Apple and Oat Muffins

It’s time for gourds and squash to fill up the produce markets! This year I decided to make my own pumpkin puree.  I was inspired by a whole brigade of fellow bloggers who have been posting yummy looking recipes with their fresh pumpkin.  Who am I to buck the trend?  If they could, so could […]

Butterscotch Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce

I’ve discussed inspiration here a few times, and I admit mine comes from the strangest places. This bit of inspiration hit in my local grocery store’s rather dismal bakery section.  Let’s be honest, grocery store bakeries are bleak places stuffed with pre-fab cakes smothered with greasy icing, cookie pucks, and pies with what can best […]

Caramel Cake with Cinnamon Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese Frosting

So, the recipe for Bourbon Caramel Apple Pie Cookies contains a recipe that yields well over a cup of caramel sauce.    That is a lot more caramel than you really need.  Never fear, I have an elegant solution for what to do with the extra caramel that does not require two pints of ice cream and a marathon of my favorite Marilyn Monroe […]

Roasted Butternut Squash, Sweet Potato and Maple Soup

I was not really a big fan of butternut squash until last winter.     Not that there is anything wrong with it, but I had only ever had it baked or steamed with some butter.  BORING!  So, I decided to try adding butternut squash into different recipes.  I figured out pretty early on I liked […]
