Coconut Butterscotch Toffee Blondies

Wednesday, August 7, 2013

11 Comments

Someone told me today, “Wow, you look happy!” I AM happy, and evidently it shows! It has been a while since someone told me I looked happy. Frankly, outside of my home life, I have been terribly unhappy. What’s worse: I allowed it. How sad is that? I opted for the ‘safe’ path – the […]

Cranberry Oat Spice Cake with Coconut, Chocolate, and Pecans

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

14 Comments

I try to keep a well stocked pantry. I never want to be without ingredients like vanilla, spices, chocolate chips, oats, dry fruit, and many other items I deem essential to my happiness. My well stocked, and organized, pantry has made many a recipe on this site possible. Let’s face it, I am a lazy […]

Chocolate Chip Coconut ‘Awesome’ Bars

Wednesday, December 7, 2011

21 Comments

I was kind of half joking on Twitter when I said that I would call these ‘Awesome Bars’. It turns out they are really quite awesome so I felt no qualms about adding it to the title.  So, what are ‘Awesome Bars,’ you might ask?.  Well, they are a dense, buttery cake bottom with a […]

Sweet Potato Pecan Coconut Cake

I love single layer cakes. They have a rustic appeal that I find immensely comforting.   Most single layer cakes are charmingly homemade in appearance, requiring no special skills to decorate them.  No torting layers, no stacking, no praying you avoid the  dreaded buttercream belly around the side of the cake.  If you decorate cakes […]

Chocolate Italian Wedding Cupcakes with Chocolate Sour Cream Frosting

Thursday, July 21, 2011

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 […]

Double Dark Chocolate Chunk Coconut Cookies

The last few days have been a roller coaster ride for me. The biggest positive of the week … Everything Pie is written!!  Going in I knew writing a book would be a challenge, but it was more difficult than I expected.  The rewards of this experience are numerous, but the biggest lessons I take […]

Last year I gave you all a round-up of cookies perfect for the holiday season … and I plan to do the same again this year!  I mean, what is better than contemplating cookies to help you get over your turkey hang-over? Next week I will be posting my entry for Challenge 8 of Project […]

Chocolate, Coconut, and Red Curry Crème Caramel

Things are going to get a little freaky-naughty. While I was in Seattle attending IFBC I had the opportunity to try various kinds of Theo Chocolate.  One particular flavor, the Coconut Curry Milk Chocolate, was astoundingly good.  I’m not kidding when I tell you it was the best bar of milk chocolate I had ever […]

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.  […]

Toasted Coconut and Chocolate Chip Blondies

Thursday, April 22, 2010

I had a craving for coconut the other day. As it happens, I had some coconut in the pantry.  I also had some chocolate chips and my mind began working.  I ultimately decided on blondies.  For versatility, flavor, and general appeal you really can not beat a blondie.  Toss in some toasted coconut and some […]
