This is a delicious cake that is easy to throw together, and if you like to bake, there’s a good chance that you’ll have all of the ingredients on hand. I made this cake the other night for dessert, and it was very good, warm, out of the oven. The frosting was soft and slightly […]
My friend Kathleen sent me a link to this recipe last weekend. She was trying to replicate fudge balls that she had eaten at a dinner party. She asked me what I thought of the recipe, and I took one look and told her that she shouldn’t waste her time; the resulting fudge balls would […]
I’m always on the lookout for healthy snacks for the boys to eat. As snack foods go, these bars aren’t terrible. They’re still a sweet snack, but they’re preservative free, unlike many of the granola bars that you buy at the supermarket. Three out of the four boys liked these. My husband and I liked […]
Yesterday was the first day of spring, and it snowed almost all day! We have had quite a winter here in NYC. I thought for sure our snowstorms were over for the year, but Mother Nature had other ideas. We probably got a good 4″ when all was said and done. The city looked beautiful […]

They taste just like Drake’s Funny Bones without the chocolate coating on the outside, and with a much better chocolate cake. Funny Bones were my favorite of the Drakes cakes […]
I have been making these cookies for a while now and they’re delicious. I found the recipe on the back of a bag of King Arthur flour. I love the addition of oats to a good chocolate chip cookie.
If you cook these according to the instructions, leaving the centers of the cookies looking a little […]
My sisters know that I love to bake so they periodically send me recipes to try. This was one of them. I noted that the original recipe is from Melissa Clark, a NY Times food columnist whose recipes I have enjoyed in the past, so I figured I’d give it a shot.
My assessment: this […]
