Spiced Dark Chocolate Soufflé

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.  […]

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 […]
