My Go-To Blueberry Muffin Recipe

Share

I’ve made lots of blueberry muffins over the years, but this is my current go-to recipe. I found it this summer when blueberries were plentiful, made it least a half dozen times over the course of a month or so, and keep using it. I have a batch frozen in the freezer right now […]

Excellent Blondies

Share

There’s not much to say about these other than I think they’re the best blondies I’ve ever made. Hands down. The combination of the toasted pecans and white chocolate (and lots of vanilla) make these excellent. If you’re a blondie fan, try these. This is now my go-to blondie recipe.Although I think these are […]

Blueberry Streusel Bars with Lemon-Cream Filling

They are loaded with flavor and not overly sweet, a nice combination of blueberry and lemon. Blueberry and lemon is one of my favorite fruit combinations. If […]

The BEST Chocolate Cake

Share

I can safely say that this is the best chocolate cake I have ever made. It is really moist, even several days after it’s made, and it’s incredibly chocolatey. I have made a number of cakes that have “essence of chocolate’, as my grandmother used to say, meaning it barely had any real chocolate taste […]

One of my favorite cooking magazines is called Fine Cooking. I subscribe to their email newsletter, which is where I found this recipe. Having made it several times now, it’s being officially added to my rotation of quick breads. It’s not overly sweet, and it’s not overly chocolatey either, with just 1/3 cup of chocolate. […]

Plum Torte

I have made this torte many times over the last year and I’m just getting around to posting the recipe. It’s delicious when plums are in season, and when they’re not, it’s quite tasty with berries as well. Make sure the berries on top are well packed; don’t leave too much interstitial space. Vanilla ice […]

Delicious Lemon Loaf

I love a good lemon bread. It’s great for breakfast, dessert or an afternoon snack. This one is quite moist and bursting with flavor. Starbucks sells something just like it, and although I’ve never tried theirs, I bet this one is better. I have made this recipe several times now and it has always been […]
