Update to Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

by on June 2, 2009 · 0 comments

Yesterday’s cupcakes were a test batch, but today I’m making the real thing — and maybe with a different frosting. Cupcakes are a great excuse to test out different frostings, though the previous one was quite good. One thing I wanted to tell you was the yield is actually 18 cupcakes rather than 12. …

Blogroll Has a New Location

by on April 14, 2009 · 21 comments

If you are wondering what happened to the blogroll, I am happy to say it’s been moved to its own special page. I will add a small banner to the top left corner of the sidebar as a re-direct, but since I’m not actually finished with the new blogroll (lots of links don’t …

Cheesecake Notes

by on July 26, 2008 · 21 comments

Fuzz and Lizzie

Based on the results of the previous cheesecake, my next cheesecake is going to be this recipe from Or at least the filling – I will stick with my usual graham cracker crust. The reason I think the cheesecake looks better is that it has a higher initial temp (for browning), a full […]

Hummingbird Cake Review

by on May 26, 2008 · 6 comments

Sorry to post about Hummingbird Cake in two places, but I couldn’t review until today. That is, after the cake was cut. This cake was so good. I went ahead and categorized it as a “Go-To” Cake — one I’d make again for a party or large group. While next time I might decorate it […]

If you don’t have one already, there’s no better time than now to treat yourself to a kitchen scale. Seriously, if you don’t have one, ask Santa. It’s one of the best tools a baker can have and I wait for the day when all cookbooks have weight measures rather than just volume……which …

Kosher Salt

by on August 16, 2006 · 8 comments

Ordinary table salt weighs 10 oz. per cup; Morton’s Coarse Kosher Salt weighs 7.7 oz. per cup; and Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt weighs 5 oz. per cup. Keep this in mind.
