While browsing the gourmet food section of a local store, I came across Starbucks Milk Chocolate Covered Coffee beans. I threw them into my basket with thoughts of mocha goodness on my brain…although I am not a fan of chocolate covered coffee beans; too gritty in my mouth!I figured if I did not use them …

Cinnamon Squares…

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe for Cinnamon Squares was chosen by Tracey of Tracey’s Culinary Adventures. I love cinnamon, but something about a cinnamon and chocolate combination does not go over well with me. I left the decision up to the boyfriend; he ended up choosing cream cheese frosting over the chocolate from the …

Mini Angel Food Cakes…

Over the weekend, I made a delectable dinner of barbequed baby back ribs with twice baked potatoes and grilled asparagus. I figured this would be plenty of food, but the boyfriend requested a dessert to accompany the feast. I did not want to make anything heavy considering the menu had enough fat and calories to …

Miniature Nutella Cakes…

I was bored this weekend and decided to throw something together that utilized a boxed cake mix. I have quite a few of these in pantry, but they rarely get any love…I just buy them because they’re on sale (it’s a compulsion of sorts). I also had new mini bundt pans that were begging to …

Black Magic Cake…

Originally I had not planned on blogging this cake, but after the rave reviews from co-workers, I figured it was a must! I made this late Sunday evening and could not get around to photographing it because the ganache had not thoroughly set up before I went to bed. The next morning, it was boxed …

A Coconut Cream Dream…

As all of you know, baking supplies/ingredients hit super low prices during the holidays. This can make people like me go a tad bit crazy and a tad bit overboard. Now seriously…can someone explain my compulsive behavior that led to a gazillion cans of evaporated milk, shredded coconut out the wazoo and enough pumpkin to …

One Very Tiny Cake…

This week, I made cupcakes for the boyfriend’s co-workers. I used the Hershey’s recipe from the back of the cocoa powder can and topped them with Buttercream Dream frosting. I had a little batter left over, so I spooned it into a 4 inch springform pan and baked until it passed the toothpick test. The …

Through one of these rut removal searches, I came across a recipe for a Tiramisu Layer Cake. Now, …
