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 […]

Ok, sometimes you need things … I am serious when I say need. A few days ago I was discussing pigs in blankets with some friends on the Twitter.  It became apparent to me that, despite our love of the finer things, a good old-fashioned pig in a blanket could reduce us to children.  Happy, […]

 I’m on something of a brown butter kick at the moment.  It is a really tasty kick, if I don’t mind saying.    After the Chocolate Spice Cake with Brown Butter Frosting I was looking for another way to use brown butter in sweets.  I decided on cookies, since they are my favorite thing to […]
