Chocolate Ice Cream

Last week I made some mint chocolate ice cream. It went over so well that I decided to pull out the ice cream maker and dust off another old recipe. When it comes to choosing ice cream recipes, I’m less adventurous and tend to stick with ones I’ve made before.   This is one of the […]

Chocolate Mayonnaise Cupcakes

Because of its high fork rating on Epicurious and because I love chocolate cake, I was really looking forward to trying the Chocolate Mayonnaise cake from the April issue of Bon Appetit. Normally I’d make it as a cake, but because I’m still in throes of this strange cupcake obsession, I made a half batch […]

chocolate banana brownie recipe

Last year I had the opportunity to go to Minnesota. What I didn’t know before booking my trip was that the Minnesota State Fair was going on, so when I got home I was kind of bummed to find I’d missed one of the biggest and longest running fairs in the country. Luckily, I got […]

White Mountain Coconut Cupcakes

Yeas ago I clipped some cupcake recipes from Chocolatier Magazine. Yesterday I was going through stuff and found this one, which was fortunate since I’d been craving coconut cupcakes all week and hadn’t settled on a recipe. I’d had my eye on Ina Garten’s, but decided to go with Chocolatier’s since it called for cake […]

Double Chocolate Dream Cookies

This week Nestle sent us samples of their new Toll House Mini Toppers – tiny chocolate and white chocolate morsels made especially for sprinkling. They would have been perfect on my Grasshopper Cupcakes, but they were long gone so I tried them out as a topping on these double chocolate cookies. Toll House has quite […]

Amaretto Banana Cupcake

It must have something to do with “back-to-school”, but for some reason I’m obsessed with cupcakes. I’ll post an actual cookie recipe soon, but here’s a recipe for the banana cupcakes I made yesterday. I ate one and gave the rest to some friends down the street hoping that at least one person in the […]

If you like the idea of a creamy mint pie but would rather eat a cupake, here’s a compromise. These chocolate ganache filled cupcakes are topped with an easy mint flavored mousse which you make in a matter of minutes with melted marshmallows.

Citrus Almond Pound Cake

by on August 24, 2010 · 19 comments


When I saw this recipe in Mark Bittman’s NYT column, I knew I’d have to try it immediately. Not only is the cake made in the food processor, which in past experience has yielded a dense, tender, moist and tight crumbed cake, but it uses for almond paste. Looking at the recipe and reading reviews, I […]
