Directions: Mush up one baked sheet cake with one can of frosting. Mold into shapes. Chill. Dip in candy melts. Voila:
I really like bread and baked goods. A lot. Often, to the exclusion of other food groups. I also like to make bread, and am always looking for ways to improve my bread-making skills. One thing I’m lacking is good recipies for sandwich breads–close-grained, tender breads that can stand some abuse before being eaten. I [...]
I’m not putting this on Tasty Kitchen, since it’s not very original, but it’s one of my very favorite cold-weather dishes. As this is the first truly wet and wild day we’ve had since we’ve been back in the States, it seemed like the perfect time for an old favorite. (Does anyone know how to [...]
Well, Tim’s top-down Elizabeth Zimmerman ribbed raglan is a good two inches too short, so I get to either a) rip out the ribbing at the bottom to add the length, or b) cut off the ribbing, knit two more inches, and graft the ribbing back on. I haven’t decided yet, so I’ve stuffed it [...]

Today’s culinary adventure was less of an adventure, since I made up this recipe back in Brazil, so it’s been tested and retested. This truly is the best pizza crust I have ever made. The egg adds flavor, the yogurt makes it fluffy and chewy, and it has the perfect proportion of sugar and salt. [...]
This recipe was fueled by a combination of my insatiable desire for a cupcake from one of Seattle’s many cupcake bakeries (cupcakeries?), and a slim pocketbook that will not allow for unnecessary luxury. I’m an avid reader of Cakespy, and am always seeing beautiful and fantastical cupcakes dance across her blog from bakeries like Cupcake [...]
Fudgy, moist, and satisfying, this recipe came about because I had two sad-looking bananas in the fridge. I found both Baker’s chocolate and a few chocolate chips in my cupboard, along with some dutch-processed cocoa, and decided to cobble together a quick bread recipe. I made it with Splenda, but sugar would work just as [...]
