This post was originally published January 23, 2007. It has been updated once since then. It was coming down to the wire for Sugar High Friday #27. The theme was chocolate and I still had no clue what I was going to make. Everything that […]

TWD: Espresso Cheesecake Brownies

TWD: Espresso Cheesecake Brownies

It’s been far too long since my last Tuesdays with Dorie post. Truth be told, I think I was extremely disheartened after the disaster that was my attempt at the Coconut-Pineapple Dacquoise. Not that it tasted bad, but I put so much time, energy and […]

Chipster-Topped Brownies

Chipster-Topped Brownies

Did ya think I’d forgotten ya? 🙂 Hardly! However from now until the end of June I’m focused on some work-related activities that are extremely time and energy consuming, so my apologies from now that updates will be rather sparse. However if all goes as […]

Mexican Turtle Cheesecake with Banana Rum Sauce (recipe)

Here it is, down to the wire. Still über busy but I wasn’t gonna let the posting date for this month’s Daring Baker’s Challenge pass me by! The April 2009 challenge is hosted by Jenny from Jenny Bakes. She has chosen Abbey’s Infamous Cheesecake as […]

Chocolate Armagnac Cake: A Study in Creative Insurbodination!

It’s with bittersweet reluctance that I bid February goodbye. Never has one month seen me cook and consume SO MUCH CHOCOLATE! Although my tastebuds do not approve of the inevitable shift that leaving the ‘month of love’ will bring, I can only think that my […]

Chocolate Valentino & Raw Vanilla Softserve (recipes)

Look at that cake! So perfect for this month’s Daring Bakers Challenge! Chocolatey, gooey, with a thin, crackly brownie-like crust… so light but rich, it melts on your tongue… and.. not a drop of flour in sight! *record scratch* … Yup, you heard me! A […]

Raw Vegan Brownies (recipe)

This recipe (well one of its variants) was my first introduction to raw ‘cuisine’. In my rather shallow, self-indulgent mind, if I could enjoy desserts as these, without fuss or guilt, I owed it to myself to learn more! Since then you’ll be happy to […]

Caramel Crunch Bars

I’ll say it up front. I’m not a toffee fan. I don’t like its overt sweetness, or its sticky tendency to adhere to my teeth. So, when I saw that the recipe that had been assigned for this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie contained toffee I […]

Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread

Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread

“Decadence with a smile”, those were Jason’s first words when he first tasted this Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread. Following his example I also dug in and had to nod (or moan) my agreement. “It’s like something I’d actually buy!” I said, and coming from […]

Exotic Caribbean Mountain Pride Dark Drinking Chocolate

Exotic Caribbean Mountain Pride Dark Drinking Chocolate

In the past I have written about my love affair with Blendo’s chocolate. Well when I was in the supermarket the other day, to my horror nary a Blendo packet was to be found. However, there were two boxes full of cocoa pod shaped pallets […]

Chocolate Sablés (recipe)

Chocolate Sablés (recipe)

These sablés are dangerous! No, it’s not because of their bittersweet chocolatey goodness. And no it’s not because of the chocolate chips strewn throughout that provide bursts of sweet creaminess. And no, it’s not even their brownie-like denseness that makes me issue this indictment. No, […]

Army Of Chocolate Biscotti

Like most food bloggers I have amassed a huge set of backlinks to recipes that I want to ‘try’ one day 🙂 In fact, I would not be hurt if no one believes me anymore when I comment on their blog that I have bookmarked […]

Sarina’s Chocolate Saturns & Ginger Trigs (recipes)

Spaced out by the title of this post? You should be! I’ve been bit by the Sci-Fi bug just in time for this month’s Blog Party 🙂 Inspired by The Happy Sorceress’ theme requirements, and some leftover ginger ‘hard candy’ that I had made on […]
