Sugar Cookies…Round One

I am going to keep this short and sweet. This week I made Dorie Greenspan’s recipe for Grandma’s All Occasion Sugar Cookies. I cut these extra thick because I am not a huge fan of crisp sugar cookies, so I wanted these to be a little soft and chewy. This dough was super soft and …

Tiramisu Layer Cake

In my opinion, it is a bit early to start Christmas baking, so I am in a slight baking rut. When this happens I usually browse tastespotting or foodgawker, but sometimes I just do random google searches. Through one of these rut removal searches, I came across a recipe for a Tiramisu Layer Cake. Now, …

Although I would love to say that I am a jack of all baking trades, I must make a confession. I stink at pie crusts…I mean really stink! Let me explain…I can totally throw the dough in the food processor and roll it out, it’s the crimping that gets me every time. No matter how …

Happy Turkey Day…

If these photos look a little different, it’s because I decided to go back to the basics. Honestly I did this because my house was a freaking mess due to Thanksgiving and I refused to clutter it up anymore with a bunch a camera equipment. I missed the basic level of food photography…no fancy lights, …

Pecan Bars…

As mentioned in a previous post, I received walnuts, pecans, and dried cranberries from Oh Nuts last week. The pecans I got were amazing, so I wanted to bake something that truly highlighted their flavor and texture. I have never made pecan pie, so that was my first thought, but I ended up choosing a …
