Chocolate Swirled Pumpkin Bread

Chocolate Marble Pumpkin Bread

It’s no secret that I can’t get enough pumpkin desserts in the fall. I don’t eat them much any other time of the year, so I don’t think I need to apologize for going a little pumpkin-crazy every once in a while, either. I do like to play with other flavors along with my pumpkin – like cheesecake and coffee – to keep things interesting ... Read More »

Plum and Black Grape Hand Pies

Plum and Grape Hand Pies

Grapes are in season during the fall, but don’t get used as much in baking as some other end of summer and fall fruits. Grapes can actually be a fantastic fruit to bake with because they have a lot of natural sugar, so they become very tender and especially sweet when they are cooked. In these Plum and Black Grape Hand Pies, I combined fresh ... Read More »

Count Chocula Cereal Milk Ice Cream

Count Chocula Cereal Milk Ice Cream

Cereal milk ice cream is exactly what it sounds like: ice cream that tastes like the milk that is left behind after eating a bowl full of cereal, preferably a sugary cereal. The idea was popularized at Momofuku Milk Bar, where it is made with caramelized corn flakes in milk. I don’t know about you, but as a kid I always thought that chocolate cereals ... Read More »

Sticky Toffee Pudding

Sticky Toffee Pudding

Sticky toffee pudding is a classic English dessert. The traditional version of the recipe calls for a steamed date cake that is drenched in toffee sauce after cooking.

Candy Corn Oreo Ice Cream

Candy Corn Oreo Ice Cream

Candy corn is a candy that is known for its look more than its flavor. The yellow, orange and white triangles are everywhere during the fall, from well before Halloween through Thanksgiving, and they’ve inspired all kinds of other treats, including a limited edition Oreo cookie. Most candy corns don’t have a lot of flavor to them beyond being slightly sweet. The best candy corns ... Read More »

Two Layer Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake

Two Layer Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake

I am a huge pumpkin pie fan and they make regular appearances in my kitchen from at least October through December. I am always looking for ways to put a spin on my Perfect Pumpkin Pie to keep things interesting – because when you try to serve people the same pie over and over again, sometimes they get a little bit bored no matter how ...

Salted Caramel Apple Mug Cake

Salted Caramel Apple Mug Cake

Mug cakes are exactly what they sound like: they are cakes that are “baked” in mugs in the microwave. If you want to be fancy about it, you can actually get away with calling this molecular gastronomy, but they’re just a way to get a warm, fresh serving of cake as quickly as possible. The problem with mug cakes is that they can be spongy ... Read More »

Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast

_DSC5534

I have always been a big fan of french toast for breakfast. It is just as easy to make as scrambled eggs are and it turns a regular breakfast into something a little bit more special. I typically finish off my french toast with a little bit of powdered sugar or maple syrup – both of which are enough to satisfy my sweet tooth in ... Read More »
