One Bowl Guinness Chocolate Cake

One Bowl Guinness Chocolate Cake

Chocolaty stout beers, such as Guinness, can be great additions to baked goods – particularly if those baked goods are chocolate.

Heavy stout beers often contain notes ... Read More »

Cream cheese frosting is one of my favorite ways to top a cake. The rich, tangy flavor of cream cheese goes well with almost any cake flavor you can think of, from chocolate cakes to spice cakes.

Blood Orange Brownie Sandwich Cookies

Blood Orange Brownie Sandwich Cookies

The bright, zesty flavor of oranges always pair well with rich, creamy chocolate. It is versatile enough to be a good match for dark, milk and white chocolates, but even though it can pair with a wide range of flavors, I often find that chocolate and orange desserts can be a bit uninspired. These Blood Orange Brownie Sandwich Cookies are a fun take on the ... Read More »

Perfect Vanilla Bean Rice Pudding

Rich Vanilla Bean Rice Pudding

A good rice pudding should feature a combination of smooth, rich custard and very tender rice. It should be sweet, without being too sweet, and the rice should really be ... Read More »

Blackberry Crumb Muffins

Blackberry Crumb Muffins

I like coffee cakes topped with lots of crisp, buttery crumb topping. Coffee cakes aren’t the only baked good you can add streusel to – even cookies and¬†pancakes are fair game – and, frankly, I wish that I would remember to add a crumb topping to my goodies a lot more often. These¬†Blackberry Crumb Muffins have a tender, berry-packed muffin base, but are a standout ... Read More »
