Loaf of orange pound cake

Orange Pound Cake

Warning: Baking this cake will fill your kitchen with the irresistible smell of oranges. This is a slightly modified version of a recipe I saw recently in Saveur. It's a buttery pound cake shot through with freshly grated orange zest and soaked with sweet orange syrup.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

These brownies are dark, fudgy, and shot through with ribbons of smooth peanut butter—and dotted with bits of molten chocolate. This recipe could feed an army. If you have a strong sense of self preservation, cut the recipe in half and make it in a smaller baking dish.

St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake

So here's the thing. I liked this cake so much that I immediately had to get it out of the house so I didn't gobble down the entire pan. Find the logic in that, I know.

Chocolate Cream Pie

I should admit: I have a special spot in my heart for old-fashioned desserts—especially if it's the kind of thing that you're likely to find in the spinning dessert case at a 1950s-style diner. This pie totally fits the bill.

Chocolate Caramel Tartlettes

Hope you all had a fabulous holiday and new years! The Angry Chef and I spent New Year's Eve nestled in with the good folks from The Salem Insider and Rippin Kitten. The company was outstanding....

Making Springerles and Other Molded Cookies

Springerle are pretty German cookies that are usually made around Christmas. Some of the oldest springerle molds are actually traced back to the 14th century.

Caramel Fudge Bars with Cinnamon Shortbread Crust

These bars are one part candy, one part cookie. For this recipe, cinnamon-laced brown-sugar shortbread is draped in a rich fudge topping that's half chocolate ganache, half dulce de leche.

Chocolate Stout Layer Cake

Be still my little mouse heart: This is the best chocolate cake I've ever made.

Apple Pie in a Glass

I'd like to introduce you to my new favorite milkshake. I can't take credit for this idea. It's my version of the Apple Cider Milkshake I had at the Ben & Jerry's in Salem the other day, while I was waiting for The Angry Chef to pick me up on a rainy day.

Brown-Sugar Pumpkin Cheesecake with Chocolate-Shortbread Crust

This cheesecake is like pumpkin pie dressed up in velvet. It has all the delicious, spicy autumn flavor of traditional pumpkin pie—coupled with the dense creaminess of cheesecake.
