Raspberry-Covered Devil's Food Cake
I'd like to introduce you to my favorite Devil's Food Cake recipe - or perhaps you've already met. You may recognize it from my cookbook (in a different kind of heart shape) or from this recent post on Food52. It's soft yet substantial and deeply chocolate with a velvety texture. The recipe yields
Applewood Bacon Shortbread Cookies
Many months ago I purchased a sampler set of flavored salts on an impulse. The names and colors drew me in: Murray River Pink, Bolivia Sunset, and Red Alaea . Since then I've sampled all twelve salts in the set, and my favorite - the supply that is quickly dwindling - is the flavorful brown-black
Harlequin Truffle Roulade
If you've been reading this blog for very long, then you know I love a cake roll . I found this recipe in a secondhand baking textbook, and was instantly smitten. The alternating chocolate ganache and vanilla buttercream interior was so striking on the page, I had to try my hand at the technique.
Baked Buttermilk Doughnuts
January is a funny time, because just as you're getting a fresh start and looking at things anew, the world outside looks grey and dismal. Something about that doesn't exactly match up. Although there are days when I prefer a sky that looks like wet cement (accompanied by snowflakes, hot tea and ...
Chocolate Champagne Genoise
January clockwork. This time of year always seems to bring out the optimist in me. I am hopeful. No other word can describe it better. Hopeful. 2014 was a year filled to the brim. It was a year of baking and recipe testing and a whole lot of avoiding dirty dishes. It was the year I wrote a new ...

Microwave Grey Sea Salt Caramels
This is one of my favorite caramel recipes because you don't have to use a candy thermometer. Total cooking time is about 7 minutes in the microwave (as opposed to 20 + on the stovetop) and after a short chill in the refrigerator, they're ready to be cut and wrapped. This is a great recipe for busy
