Crunchy Seed Cookies

Awesome cookies, exactly as the author’s saying – “noisily crunchy, light, addictive”. The recipe is by Alice Medrich. I just used a bit more seeds since the stated amount wasn’t quite enough. It does seem like I’m not keeping up… Continue reading →

Devil’s Mini-Cupcakes with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

I made these little cakes for my son’s school birthday party. We’d been arguing for a while if they should (or should not) have colored sprinkles on their tops. Tim kept saying that the sprinkles could significantly increase the cupcakes’ popularity…. Continue reading →

Cocoa Nib Ice Cream

There is another jewel from Alice Medrich’s “Bittersweet”. The book is worth buying for this ice cream recipe along, and for her advice on rescuing seized ganache. The author describes the ice cream flavor as “ rich, clean chocolate …… Continue reading →
