Chocolate Cupcakes with Earl Grey Frosting

Saturday, May 16, 2009

For Tim’s birthday, I asked Sarah, what flavor(s) should his cake be? When she responded with chocolate and Earl Grey, I was ecstatic. I would be happy to make that (and eat that)! They turned out great if I do say so myself, and Lon backs me up.

Individual Cookie Pies

Friday, May 15, 2009

I had so much left over pie dough from making a Strawberry Rhubarb Pie and Lon has been asking, what are you going to do with it? He claims he doesn’t like dessert, but he eats every dessert that walks by.

Suddenly, late afternoon, I started craving chocolate chip cookies and I thought, how perfect, I’ll make a cookie pie. I saw this recipe, on Bakerella, that was so interesting because it doesn’t start with creaming the butter and sugar. The pictures looked delicious and convinced me to try this method, although I did alter a bit. Eating these really made me feel like a kid again. I don’t know why, considering I never had cookie pie as a kid but, hey whatever makes us feel young right?

Mustard!

Thursday, April 23, 2009

In preparation for our upcoming Grilled Cheese extravaganza, we need some awesome mustard.  As you may know from reading Jessica’s bio, she loves mustard.  And at the moment we probably have six or eight different store-bought mustards at home.

Banana Birthday Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Saturday, January 31, 2009

It’s my friend Monica’s birthday and of course I made a cake. I went through the massive list of recipes I have bookmarked and decided on a banana cake. I made a few changes: I omitted the nuts (Monica doesn’t like nuts), opted for a cream cheese frosting, and threw in some chocolate shavings for decoration.

Blueberry Coffee Cake

Sunday, January 18, 2009

I love blueberries but they’re out of season. Luckily frozen blueberries are available year round. While I will still really miss popping fresh blueberries (one of my favorite snacks), I’ll have to settle for blueberries in baked goods for now. Oh, the suffering….hehe

Blueberry Almond Caramel Popcorn

Saturday, January 10, 2009

A while back we sampled some delicious Blueberry Popcorn from Trader Joes. However, they don’t seem to sell it any more. The result: I made our own. For this recipe, I started with corn kernels, but you could just as easily substitute any other popcorn, you’ll need about 5 quarts.

Two More Barbecue Sauces

Tuesday, January 6, 2009

What’s better than barbecue sauce? Two barbecue sauces! In continuing our Pulled Pork fest, I made two more barbecue sauces. The first is a nice and spicy sauce that features molasses and heat. The second is a super basic sauce, similar to one my mom used to make for chicken.

Blue-Pear-Y Crumb Pie

Tuesday, January 6, 2009

I’ve been working on this recipe for a while, trying several variations. The hard part (at least for me) was that pears give off a lot more water than apples. This is finally a version worthy of your eyes and taste buds. It’s a simple fruit pie that can be made in winter months since it uses pears and dried blueberries.

Pulled Pork & Killer BBQ Sauce

Sunday, January 4, 2009

Wandering through BJs the other day, Jessica spotted a luscious looking pork leg and asked if I thought we should make it. Of course my answer was “YES!” However, the two of us came to our senses and decided to just buy a pork shoulder weighing in at just under nine pounds, as opposed to the leg, which was probably 20 or 25 pounds.

Cheddar Crust Apple Pie

Wednesday, December 3, 2008

I’ve seen a couple of recipes for apple pie with cheddar cheese in the crust, intending to try it out at some point. I finally got around to it and found this recipe that used a 9X13 oval baking dish. I happen to have one and have never seen a recipe using it. Boy, was I ecstatic!

After reading the recipe more carefully, I realized a couple of problems. I didn’t want the raisins in this recipe (no general prejudice against them) and I wanted a double crust pie, not just a top crust. Luckily, it seemed this recipe made more then enough dough for a double crust, and you’ll still have left-over. (I’ll try to do something with this another day.) Lastly, I like tall pies. (Have you heard of Mile High Apple Pie?) So, I increased the apple filling.
