One of the first things I did when I got back from Asheville, NC was to email Jael and Dan Rattigan from The Chocolate Lounge and beg ask them to share a recipe, any recipe, from their outstanding repertoire. So happy they sent the one for […]

  • Apple Frangipane Tartelettes With Cheesecake Ice Cream

    When I was a little girl I had quite a few nicknames. I will spare you the ones my dear and gentle (hmmm…) brothers gave me but my family gave me two that are still around today: Tartelette and Reine des Pommes. The first one is obvious as I love to make tarts and they […]

    Cheesecake Pops – Dunking With The Daring Bakers

    I get excited every month about posting the Daring Bakers challenges. Actually it is more like an act in three part. On reveal day, I check our site in my pajamas like a kid waiting to open her Christmas present. I give myself a week or so to think about how I want to go […]

  • 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?

  • Cheesecake or Cinnamon Ice Cream? Both?!

    Cheesecake or Cinnamon Ice Cream? Both?!

    I don’t particularly enjoy ice cream drips on my coffee table, but by the time I shot some pictures and we finally decided what flavor we wanted, there were tiny ice cream puddles and lots of slurping, licking and “humhumhums” heard around.
