Samoas Bar

In our region, these popular Girl Scout cookies are called Caramel Delites, but we call them Samoas anyway. It’s just a more interesting name, plus if you compare the not-so-minor differences between the two cookies, you might suspect that the Samoas are just plain better. But that’s subjective, of course. Either way, ours are all […]

Angel Food Mousse Cake

I’ve been on an angel food cake this week, and after making several variations, I decided to share this mocha version. It’s good as is, but if you have any suggestions on how to improve it, let me know. I’m thinking about swapping out a couple of angel food layers with devil’s food layers (similar […]

thick chocolate chip cookies with toffee

In honor of the fact Mad Men starts tonight, I’ll probably bake something with whiskey. Until I figure out what, here’s a great chocolate chip cookie recipe from yesterday. I can’t wait to eat one again today! These cookies are thick, bumpy, chewy on the inside, crunchy on the outside and made with a not-too-rich […]

Caramel Filled Blondies

caramel filled blondies

After seeing some caramel sauce topped Martha Stewart blondies on Pinterest, I decided to try making a batch where instead of being poured over the top, the caramel was sandwiched in between two layers of blondie. The experiment worked! I’ve only made these once, but I plan to make them again and serve them to […]

Deluxe 8 Inch Pan Brownies

by on March 21, 2012 · 21 comments


Today’s brownie recipe is adapted from a contest winner from Southern Living magazine. A $1,000 “brand winner” in the desserts category, it features 1/4 cup of Millstone Coffee. Unless you brew your coffee really, really, strong, you’re not going to get much flavor from 1/4 cup brewed coffee, but in this case it doesn’t matter […]

Viceroy Hotel Anguilla Granola

by on March 19, 2012 · 12 comments


Last week a friend told me that the best thing about a certain hotel was the toast served in the dining room. It was a perfectly good hotel, but her memory was of the toast; and I could relate, because that’s how I feel about hotel granola.   I always remember what type of granola is […]
