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 […]
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 […]
The photo in BCM of this Cranberry Crackle Tart was the reason why I wanted to try it out for myself – not so much for the baking experience, but to see what this combination of flavors would be like. It’s a tart with a layer of jam, topped off with a combination of meringue and […]

If you have BCM, I highly recommend using caramelized Rice Krispies instead of cereal straight out […]
