Cherry Almond Crisp

Cherries and almonds go together so well when baked.  This simple dessert only takes a few minutes to make… if you have a cherry pitter.  I made this just for the two of us, but the ratios of this could easily be increased to serve more.  This doesn’t need to bake for too long.  The…

Open-Faced Blueberry Pie

This pie is a really nice combination between a fruit tart and a traditional pie.  When I saw the photo of this on Chemist in the Kitchen, I knew I had to make it for the Fourth of July.  Part of the fruit is cooked down, and mixed with the fresh blueberries giving this a…

Strawberry Kiwi Tarts

The pickings at our farmers market haven’t been  too impressive yet.  It is still early in the season in the northeast, and we have had almost daily heavy thunderstorms.   However, there has been no shortage of strawberries.  Locally grown strawberries are usually super sweet, fragrant and reliably good.  That’s why  I can’t stop writing about…

I have always wanted to make a souffle.  It has been one of those things that I just hadn’t gotten around to making myself.  When I saw this recipe at Closet Cooking, I knew I would have to give it a try.  Even though the recipe said it would be easy, I was still surprised…

Carrot Cake Cookies

Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting is definitely one of my favorite desserts of all time.  These cookies are a great variation on the classic.  The texture had a really pleasant chewiness, and they were still pretty cake-like despite being a bit flat.  I had high hopes for these, and they didn’t disappoint.  I made…

Rice Pudding

I love complicated desserts that require using a mountain of dishes and stretching my culinary ability. This is not one of those desserts. In fact, this is pretty much as simple as dessert can get, but it’s really, really good. Arborio rice gives this a really nice texture, and the end result is creamy and…

They have chosen Tuiles from The Chocolate Book by Angélique Schmeink and Nougatine and Chocolate Tuiles from Michel Roux. I decided to go with the third savory option for this challenge: savory tuiles/cornets by…

Orange Yogurt Cake

I really wanted to bake a cake over the weekend. J tried his best to talk me out making something citrusy in favor of chocolate.  The truth is this: I have kind of lost my taste for chocolate cake. I guess I should be happy about that. I really wanted to use two oranges that…
