Snickery Squares

Posted on

I felt like taking a short break from Baking Chez Moi, so I started going through Baking: From My Home To Yours. I came across the recipe for Snicker Squares and immediately started drooling. It might have been the mention of dulce de leche or it might have been the candied peanuts. Either way, both […]

Marquise au Chocolat

Posted on

The first time I had eaten Marquise au Chocolate was when a friend made it for a small group of us for New Year’s last year.  It was incredibly delicious, but we didn’t know what the proper name for it was – we called it “fondant.” When I got Baking Chez Moi, I read through […]

Soft Japanese Cheesecake

Posted on

Today felt like a cheesecake kind of day, but more of the lighter Japanese souffle type of cheesecake kind of day.  This is really a moist and fluffy cheesecake that is pretty easy to make if you have all of your ingredients ready to go. I had all of the ingredients and some time so I […]

Brown-Butter-and-Vanilla-Bean Weekend Cake

Posted on

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is the Brown-Butter-and-Vanilla-Bean Weekend Cake. It is the very first recipe in Baking Chez Moi. It doesn’t require many ingredients, but it makes a pretty tasty cake. I think that the rum was a little overpowering for my taste, so if I were to make it again, I’d omit […]

Granola Energy Bars

Posted on

Happy New Year! The first Tuesdays with Dorie recipe of 2015 is for Granola Energy Bars. This was another first for me; I had eaten many energy bars before, but I never thought I would make them. What was interesting about this recipe was that it called for Brown Rice Syrup. I had never heard […]

Gingerbread Buche de Noel

Posted on

This seemingly simple cake was quite a project! Thanks to Tuesdays with Dorie, I pushed myself to make this recipe (which I initially overlooked immediately after seeing it in Baking Chez Moi because it looked too complicated for me).  This cake turned out to be more fun to make than I thought!  There were 4 steps […]

Gougères

Posted on

When I first saw this recipe in Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table, I immediately marked it as a “Must Try” recipe.  I had never made choux before, but I read recipes in different cookbooks and watched a few YouTube videos for demonstrations.  I realized that the ingredients and techniques are pretty much all the […]

The Rugelach That Won Over France

Posted on

Before I purchased Baking Chez Moi, I had never heard of Rugelach.  To be honest, I’m still not 100% sure if I’m pronouncing it right (is the “ch” silent?). What I do know is that The Rugelach That Won Over France is currently the recipe of the week on Tuesdays with Dorie! I compared this recipe […]
