Orange Pumpkin Gingerbread Bundt Cake...

Thumbnail for 5915
This moist and flavorful orange pumpkin gingerbread bundt cake can be made 100% whole grain and dairy-free and is soaked in a buttery orange sauce! Like I mentioned in my last post, this cranberry apple crisp, my sense of smell and taste is gone, meaning I can’t exactly make anything new to share. So today I’m sharing a pumpkin gi [...]

Caramel Apple Cake with Salted Carame...

Thumbnail for 5913
This caramel apple cake is about as easy as it gets. In my last post, I shared a recipe for mini pumpkin cheesecakes and talked about how I like to keep things simple, especially for Thanksgiving. Layer cakes are beautiful, sure, but a layer cake is probably the last thing I want to make for Thanksgiving. I don’t know about you, but I [...]

The Poo Wang-ian Tradition

The Poo Wang-ian Tradition
Ahhh, Thanksgiving. A time of giving. A time of thanks. A time of family, food, and, of course… DRAW ME LIKE ONE OF YOUR FRENCH GIRLS   …inappropriate turkey cakes. By now Turkey Poo Wangs are as much a part of Thanksgiving as candied yams and Uncle Jerry’s drunken rants about “kids these days,” so it̵ [...]

Sweet Corn Spoon Bread

Thumbnail for 5910
This riff on the popular JIFFY corn casserole includes an extra egg, which gives this version a creamy, almost souffle-like consistency. It’s Thanksgiving week! While Christmas will forever and always be my most favorite holiday, nothing beats Thanksgiving food. Yes, the turkey is great, but I live for the side dishes. I sacrifice turk [...]

Candy Crush Brownies

Thumbnail for 5908
So it turns out that I way overbought on Halloween candy this year. I even used a bunch candy bars a couple of weeks ago to make these Cheesecake Bars. Well I finally just had to stop eating them since Thanksgiving is almost here, so I decided to make these Candy Crush Brownies to share. I call them Candy Crush because these are all my fave [...]

Sunday Sweets: Doctor Who Day…ish
Tomorrow is Doctor Who Day so of course we had to post some amazing Doctor Who Sweets today. Sadly, we’re at a convention so we ran out of time and couldn’t write our usual commentary. Sorry about that. Please enjoy today’s cakes and imagine we’re saying something witty and/or profound. -john (the hubby of Jen)   [...]

The Weekend Dish: 11/21/2015

Thumbnail for 5905
Happy pre-Thanksgiving weekend! Are you getting geared up for your turkey day? I need to put together my schedule for next week, my grocery list, and get into holiday mode. This crappy cold I’ve had all week has zapped every last ounce of energy. Hopefully I’ll be on the upswing in the next day or two and ready to tackle all thing [...]

Friday Favs 11/20/15
Some of my favorite new submissions this week.   Tonight we’re gonna party like it is 1960′s Hippie Party Theme!   “Ahola, Tim!” “Ahol.. what?” “AHOLATTA BEACH TURDS.” “That… doesn’t really make sense.” “It makes aholatta sense, Tim. AHOLATTA.” [...]

Cranberry Apple Crisp (vegan, dairy-f...

Thumbnail for 5895
This cranberry apple crisp has added pecans in the crisp topping, is 100% whole grain and has vegan and dairy-free options! After I made that sweet potato mac and cheese on Saturday, I had a weird reaction to the cheddar. I react badly to something in some types of cheddar (I have no idea what) and it seems to give me an instant sinus infecti [...]

My Thanksgiving Menu [2015]

Thumbnail for 5893
A run down of what I’m making for Thanksgiving this year – drinks, appetizers, the turkey, side dishes and dessert. Thanksgiving is a week away (!) and earlier this week I worked on getting my menu finalized. It’s become tradition to share my menu with you; I hope you enjoy browsing! As is the case with most holidays, there [...]


“There! On the horizon! Is it some foul messenger of Emperor Zurg, here to destroy all life in this galaxy??”   **** ****   Thanks to Rachel M., who adds, “This was the second attempt and the cake maker was shocked I was not happy. The manager, however, had to hold back his laughter and started calling all the [...]

Cranberry-Pecan Pound Cake with Prali...

Thumbnail for 5890
This fabulous cream cheese pound cake gets a holiday twist with dried cranberries and pecans and is subtly spiced with cinnamon and ginger, topped with a praline frosting. Pound cakes are one of my favorite summer desserts – topped with fresh fruit and whipped cream, they’re the perfect vehicle for enjoying summer’s bounty i [...]
