  • Spiced Pumpkin Mascarpone Cupcakes And A Housewarming Party

    Spiced Pumpkin Mascarpone Cupcakes And A Housewarming Party

    Let me start this by a little clarification. On my previous post about the Daring Bakers’ Potato Bread challenge, I said that Tartelette was anti-carb….followed by a big “Yeah right…”! Obviously my sense of humor does not translate very well in writing because I am 100% “Pro-Carb”. Trust me!! This said… This week is just […]

  • A New Bready Bunch: The Daring Bakers’ Tender Potato Bread

    A New Bready Bunch: The Daring Bakers’ Tender Potato Bread

    Braid or Couronne What if I were to tell you I am anti-carbs?….Ahahahahah!!! Well, you reacted the way I expected: a big loud laugh instead of throwing me a stone. Yeah, because let’s face it, telling you that Tartelette is a blog sans carb would be telling you it never snows in Ohio. Where am […]

  • Cinnabons – A Tasty Knock Off – Priceless Friends

    Cinnabons – A Tasty Knock Off – Priceless Friends

    I will be the first one to say that one can never have too many cinnamon rolls! When a sweet somebody suggested after the September Daring Bakers‘ challenge that we make a go at a recipe for Cinnabons, guess who answered the call of more butter, yeast, dough and cream cheese…and more butter? Yes, your […]

  • Cranberry Nut Caramel Tarts

    Cranberry Nut Caramel Tarts

    Instead of pumpkin or pecan pie this Thanksgiving, we are going to have these little beauties: Cranberry Nut Caramel Tarts….Oh Yeah!!! Cranberries, pistachios, almonds all stirred in a creamy caramel and baked in little shortbread tart shells. Not that we do not like a little pumpkin or a little pecan here and there, but these […]

  • Pumpkin Praline Cheesecake

    Pumpkin Praline Cheesecake

    I often post about the most important women in my life, my mother and grandmother but I rarely post about my dad. Why? Because if I did, I would not have many secret left to you…we are very much alike…very much. Sometimes, I find that disturbing because it’s like looking at your personality in a […]

  • Cappuccino Creams And Chocolate Madeleines

    Cappuccino Creams And Chocolate Madeleines

    For a mere couple of days last week, it did feel like Fall, cool and crisp, under a cloudless blue sky, and then “pouf” we were back to temperatures of 75F and higher….No wonder the leaves don’t change colors and fall and winter fashion is always on sale around our parts! Well, as you may […]

  • Good Looking Buns!

    Good Looking Buns!

    Not one to particularly toot my own horn, I am ecstatic that these little buns make my blog look good! Yes, I know you have already seen these pistachio and cranberry sticky buns back in September for a Daring Bakers’ Challenge. Well, these little sticky gooey goodness of buns won me the Edibility Category in […]

  • Apple And Thyme: Pear Tart With Grandma And Mom

    Apple And Thyme: Pear Tart With Grandma And Mom

    It’s interesting how life comes at you full force, sometimes from people you don’t even know. A few weeks ago one member of the Daring Bakers, Inge, posted an event she was hosting to honor the women, be it moms or grandmothers (or any person special to us) who influenced us in the kitchen. The […]

  • Deconstructed Coconut Cream Pie For A Special Friend

    Deconstructed Coconut Cream Pie For A Special Friend

    I wanted to post this yesterday but somehow I kept starting over and over again, never satisfied with the angle I chose to tell you the story behind this dessert….the post itself is as deconstructed as the dish itself, much like the great story that goes along with it. So forgive me if this post […]

  • White Chocolate Pots De Creme And Hibiscus Flowers

    White Chocolate Pots De Creme And Hibiscus Flowers

    Nothing much going on in the kitchen right now as my work life as taken a somewhat unexpected turn. Well, ok, I knew changes were coming, I was not sure of the timing so it’s been a pretty stressful week to say the least. I did fulfill the orders I had for cakes and other […]
