Oh, so you want your cake to look like this?   Nooo problem.   Thanks to Tish B. for proving, yet again, that a picture is worth a thousand facepalms.   ***** IMPORTANT ELEVEN O’CLOCK UPDATE:(Because John was really bored.) WE CAN GO DEEPER! It’s a picture of a picture of a picture of a cake on a cake.   *** [...]

Apple Cheesecake Crumb Bars

Thumbnail for 2797
Shortbread crust. Cheesecake. Spiced apples. Crumb topping. Fall baking doesn’t get too much better than that combination. I can’t ever turn down cheesecake, and that combined with apples (my fall obsession, especially in morning oatmeal), and a crumb topping is totally irresistible. These bars aren’t too sweet, aren’t [...]

You’ll never guess what Beth ordered for her daughter’s birthday party! Or, ok, maybe you will.   Ah, but can you decipher the exact words used in this phone call? Nailed it.

S’mores Wedding Cake

Thumbnail for 2789
The ooey, gooey marshmallow and melted chocolate sandwiched between graham crackers – well, it’s heavenly. So why wouldn’t you want your wedding cake to be a s’mores wedding cake? I can’t think of one reason. This gorgeous wedding cake is that s’mores wedding cake we’ve all dreamed of and it looks del [...]

Beef Enchiladas

Thumbnail for 2787
Mexican food is one of my favorite types of food to eat when I’m going out to eat. Italian usually pales in comparison to what I was used to eating at my grandma’s table growing up, sushi and Chinese are typically reserved for takeout, and one can only eat so many sandwiches. I’ve found that it’s very hard to go wrong [...]

Chocolate Chocolate Teacake

Thumbnail for 2785
This cake! Yes, this cake! It may look unassuming but let me tell you, it is everything. Completely delicious and one of the best slices of chocolate cake I’ve had in a long, long while. It’s delish dusted with powdered sugar for breakfast or served for dessert with a dollop of whipped cream. But really It doesn’t even need anything at all… [...]

The weather down here in Florida may not have gotten the memo yet, but fall is officially upon us. So let’s celebrate! Pumpkins, pumpkins, everywhere – and this time I’m not complaining! Love the raffia border between the two tiers, and check out that gorgeous hand-painted scene.   In addition to my favorite color (ora [...]

The Weekend Dish: 9/27/2014

Thumbnail for 2777
Happy Weekend! Can you believe that next week is already OCTOBER?? What?! Crazy! Today we are celebrating my mom’s birthday, the big 6-0! I actually have not seen her in nearly a month because she had shingles and both her doctor and mine cautioned us to stay away from each other, even though I’ve had the chicken pox, they said be [...]

Fun Wedding Favors – Personalized Gol...

Thumbnail for 2771
But this could be a really fun wedding favor – and you don’t even need to like golf. As a golfer I really like the idea of handing out personalized golf balls as wedding favors – especially if your reception happens to be a at a country club. The golf balls could be an “extra” favor for guests, not necessarily th [...]

These cakes are all quite nicely done. I’m sure that will be of some comfort to the kids when they’re in therapy. Sock-hop it to me, Audrey R.! Yes, happy birthday, girls, from Headless Flo and her Tinker-Toy Poodle Skirt of Probable Misfortune. (“Doom” was taken.) Now, who wants ice cream?   “No, no, Patr [...]
