Today is a special day. It is Josh’s birthday and we have our “big” appointment. We find out what we are having today.
I decided to buck tradition this year and I made a cheesecake for Thanksgiving instead of apple or pumpkin pie. Brandon and I both LOVE cheesecake and he insists that it’s more pie than cake, so in his mind I still made the traditional pie. I used my previous cheesecake recipe , (which IMHO is the best) but modified it by adding melted white and dark chocolate, a method I’ve seen in a bunch of other recipes. If you remember from my previous sojourn into cheesecake baking I had some issues getting it right (it looked undercooked, though it really wasn’t). I baked it a bit differently this time and found this is definitely the right way to do it.
When I am sad and stressed I just pick up my chin and grin and say…the sun will come out (SLAP! Not). Okay, where was I.
Smitty & The Shortcake (Ep. 2) | Some Kitchen Stories Smitty & The Shortcake (Ep. 2) | What happens when a writer and a photographer get together to make delicious food.Last episode of “Smitty & The Girl” Elvira tried not to stare. “Hunh.” The redhead was related to Sylvia? “Mathers, you said your last name was?” Letta was walking by, and eavesdropping, and Elvira all but heard her whip her giant, nosy head around at the name.
Tuesday, April 19, 2011 Easter Kit Kat Cake I’ve had this cake planned for weeks to bring to work for Easter. I couldn’t wait for them to see my Easter Kit Kat Cake . After my cousin posted a similar cake on Facebook, I thought it was the cutest ever.
Is there anything better than a well made pound cake? Pound cakes are highly satisfying and wonderfully versatile. I’ve served pound cake for dessert with whipped cream, I’ve served them with fresh berries for breakfast to great acclaim, and nothing beats pound cake for an after work/school snack.
Posted on Wednesday, 21st July 2010 by Grace Massa Langlois I have yet to meet a person who doesn’t like Oreo cookies or Cream Cheesecake Cupcakes . Who could resist cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies ? Not Me!
So I did mention something about health and/or diet food in my last post, and while this recipe is the latter, it is most certainly not to be confused with the former. The cool thing is that if you’re making something so distractingly colourful, people will think it’s delicious no matter what. This presents me with the option to use an old Weight Watchers trick—the one-point cupcake. Except I’m making a cake and I created my own frosting. Kinda.
Calling all Chocoholics! I will stop at nothing to bring you a fix! Last month I received an email "forward" from my brother-in-law with a recipe for a 5 Minute Chocolate Microwave Mug Cake. My first reaction as a long time baker was suspicious, but the concept was intriguing. The recipe kept buzzing around my head and I thought, what the heck, I'll just try it.
I’ve always had a penchant for sunshine in a jar. Doesn’t the very phrase itself, “sunshine in a jar,” roll off your tongue and fill your mouth with magic? While I’ve never yet found myself a sunshine in a jar, I think we may have just concocted it in our kitchen tonight. In this simple recipe, a basic white cake is turned into a slew of bright colors, baked to perfection, then topped with a creamy white frosting. Cakes baked in jars can be topped with traditional metal canning lids and stored in the fridge for up to five days. They make a great treat to ship to someone, so long as you can ensure delivery to it’s final destination within 3 days.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Make the filling: Cut squash in half lengthwise; remove seeds, and reserve for another use. Place squash, cut sides down, on a baking sheet lined with buttered parchment paper. Bake until tender, about 45 minutes. Transfer sheet to a wire rack; let cool.

I’ve had plenty of banana bread in my day. But it always seems like more of a cold weather food. Go figure, a tropical fruit that makes a cold weather bread.
