Limoncello Cupcakes

Posted on

One of the Tuesdays with Dorie recipes for this month is the Limoncello Cupcakes recipe in Baking Chez Moi. Coincidentally, I had a lot of lemons to use, but ironically, there was only a need for one lemon… The Limoncello gives these cupcakes most of its flavor.

Lemon Madeleines

Posted on

Another first, thanks to Dorie. This time it was making Madeleines.  I had seen these in Parisian stores, but I didn’t think of buying them because I was too busy looking for macarons. These little cakes are pretty good; they were soft, moist, and lemony.

Tart

Pink Grapefruit Tart

Posted on

When I saw that the Pink Grapefruit Tart was one of the assignments for Tuesdays With Dorie, I thought I would sit this one out. It seemed like a complicated recipe and I was not a huge fan of grapefruit. I thought it over for half the month and decided that I should give it […]

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 […]

Brown-Butter-and-Vanilla-Bean Weekend Cake

Bars

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 […]

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 […]

Tart

Cranberry Crackle Tart

Posted on

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 […]
