Honeycomb Candy

Honeycomb Candy, Cindertoffee, Sponge Toffee. There are several different names for this sweet treat! The first time I had Honeycomb Candy was only a few years ago when a colleague brought back some Crunchie candy bars from the UK back to the office. I thought they were made out of real honeycombs…I didn’t realize how […]

Summer Market Galette

Posted on

It’s definitely summer! The heat has been in full force, and the summer fruits have made their presence in farmer’s markets and grocery stores!

Tarte Tropézienne

Posted on

One of this month’s Tuesdays With Dorie assignments is the Tarte Tropézienne from Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. It’s like a brioche cake with a delicious cream filling, and topped with pearl sugar. It sounds odd, but it’s really nom-worthy.
