Chocoflan Recipe

Opposites do attract, and in epic dessert fashion! Discover the charm of Chocoflan – a masterful union of fudgy chocolate cake and creamy vanilla custard. That little machine that makes chocolate and vanilla swirled ice cream might just be my favorite invention (second to air conditioning, of course). Why spend precious time at the counter pondering the age-old question of “chocolate or vanilla” when you can have both? “Both” (or “one of everything”) is,  after all, my dining philosophy, and it’s one of the reasons I love to make this Chocoflan. In one unassuming Bundt pan, you’ll construct the...

Gingerbread Muffins with Spiced Crumb Topping

Tender, moist, fluffy Gingerbread Muffins with a generous spiced Crumb Topping!  The season of gingerbread is fast approaching. You’ve potentially experimented with gingerbread cookies, bars—maybe even a good old fashioned gingerbread house. But this winter, give gingerbread muffins a try.

And, even more, I didn’t actually like the pound cakes I had tried. Often they were so dry. Eventually, I got up the courage (and the desire) to give it a try. I reworked an...

Cranberry Bliss Cookies

Cranberry Bliss Cookies!  Who doesn’t love the original Cranberry Bliss Bars from Starbucks. I think my local Starbucks has paid their entire December rent directly from the profits they’ve made from my personal consumption of these bars. I make a copycat version of the bars every year around the holidays for family and friends. Trust me, I deliver them to everyone the day they’re made so I don’t eat the entire batch myself. They’re good~really, really  GOOD!!! Who can stop at just one when you have an entire pan freshly baked wrapped up in your fridge? So this year, while...

Classic Pecan Pie

Classic Pecan Pie I adore Pecan Pie. We have this delicious pie all year round. There is, however, one day of the year that my family insists on it being served. Thanksgiving! Other pies and cakes are, of course, welcome to join the feast, but this Classic Pecan Pie had better be on the table front and center! This recipe is from the iconic The Silver Palate Cookbook. I’ve used this recipe to make my pecan pies since I first got this cookbook decades ago! It’s my favorite! Recipe Notes: Toasting the pecans is absolutely mandatory. Don’t skip this step....
