  • Julia Child’s French Bread With A Plate Of Daring Bakers!

    Julia Child’s French Bread With A Plate Of Daring Bakers!

    You got it…that’s what I did with the latest Daring Bakers’ Challenge. I stuffed it with chocolate and ate it at 4 o’clock!….Why? Because it was French bread and because it was my favorite snack when I was a kid, that’s why, ahahah! After the wonderful Tender Potato Bread a few months ago, Mary from […]

  • Salade De Fruits…Jolie Jolie Jolie

    Salade De Fruits…Jolie Jolie Jolie

    No, no, this Fruit Salad with Blood Orange Syrup is not an ode to Mrs. Brad Pitt but rather a glimpse into my daily breakfast fare…in music. When Elly from Elly Says Opa! announced her “Eat To The Beat” event I knew right off the bat what I would make. Hugh…what so special about Fruit […]

  • Pineapple Almond Cheesecakes With Caramelized Pineapple

    Pineapple Almond Cheesecakes With Caramelized Pineapple

    We all know the phrase “when life throws you lemons make lemonade” and while I am not going to tell you that when life throws you pineapples you should made pineapple-ade, I do have admit that our kitchen counter tops did look like they were sprouting pineapples like mad this past week. It started when […]

  • No Eggs – No Butter? Peanut Butter Scones And Lemon Lime Sunshine Cake From My Sweet Vegan

    No Eggs – No Butter? Peanut Butter Scones And Lemon Lime Sunshine Cake From My Sweet Vegan

    Baking without eggs and butter past midnight a couple of days ago…”Why would that be?” you might be wondering. Did I run out of baking supplies when a sweet craving hit? Was I cramming in homework at the last minute? None of the above…although I did in fact re-do a post just to update the […]

  • Strawberry Lime Tartelettes And A New Boyfriend

    Strawberry Lime Tartelettes And A New Boyfriend

    Remember a while back when I was going to give Pierre Herme some rest because I was all busy with another man? Well, meet my new boyfriend Christophe Michalak. Edible wouldn’t you say? Well, like a new boyfriend he is giving me “du fil a retordre”… Yep, he is giving me a hard time. Not […]

  • Hot Macarons For My Hot Tamale

    Hot Macarons For My Hot Tamale

    I know, I know…Valentine’s Day is like 4 days behind…and still I am all about the reds and the pinks…and gushy feelings for and shared with family and loved ones. You are going to think I am lying when I proclaim high and loud that we do not celebrate V-Day. Well, we don’t do the […]

  • Time To Make The Donuts – Second Batch

    Time To Make The Donuts – Second Batch

    Thank you for your patience waiting for the second batch of the round up here. Turns out that even though we tried to split entries and forward to each other the proper ones, Peabody and I had pretty busy schedules this past week and you may find some entries twice or misplaced. The important thing […]

  • Time To Make The Doughnuts – First Batch

    Time To Make The Doughnuts – First Batch

    Wow! Wow! May I add Wow?! I had no idea that my innocent email to Peabody reading “Hey! I want to host a doughnut/beignets event and was wondering if you would like to co-host with me?” would be met by so many of you. Last time we counted we had 94 of you wonderful people […]

  • Doughnuts For My Valentine

    Doughnuts For My Valentine

    Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you! Whether you have a special somebody in your life, today is the day to celebrate all lovers out there. We don’t do outrageous things on that day Mr.Tartelette and I, but we do get caught up in all the cutsie cards out there and exchange a couple over […]

    Herme’s Miniatures

    I am going to keep this weekend post short and calorie free….A first on this blog and I hope you won’t hurt too much while in sugar withdrawal. Thankfully for your (and mine) sweet tooth, there will be plenty of chocolate and butter to be blogged about next week! Call me obsessed with the man, […]
