Chocolate Chip Cookies with Caramel

Sometimes when you’re in the mood to mess around in the kitchen, but don’t really want to try a new recipe, it’s fun to make some small tweaks to a recipe you already know and love. In this case, I used my tried and true chocolate chip cookie recipe and changed it slightly to replace […]

Caramel Buttercream Frosting

This recipe was totally worth the wait, I promise. When I think of fall, I think of caramel apples (among other things – I have so much canned pumpkin waiting to be used!), and thought I should incorporate that flavor into a cupcake. This caramel buttercream was the perfect pairing for theĀ Apple Spice Cupcakes. Like […]

Oatmeal Turtle Jumbles

This recipe has everything – mystery, intrigue, romance, and chocolate and caramel. What’s not to love? I have been logging away recipes from Peabody for ages, and until now haven’t had the opportunity to make any of them. Fortunately there was the alignment of ingredients in the cupboard (for the most part) with Baking Gals […]

Chocolate Swirl Bundt Cake

Sorry, to those of you who have been waiting patiently for my next post, that it took so long. Lots going on here at the Empire. Anyways, let’s make a cake! Is anyone else thinking of the scene in My Big Fat Greek Wedding when Toula’s mom is trying to pronounce the word ‘bundt’ (bunnnnn) […]

Alfajores – South American Sandwich Cookies

Oh yeah, they’re as exotic as they sound. My sister sent me this recipe from Recipe Girl. She (my sis) is in Paraguay at the moment, you can read about her travels at Anywhere Home, and these are pretty common cookies down there from what I gather. Maybe similar to chocolate chip up here in […]

I hope you all had a good 4th! I know I did, which is why this entry is a day late… Let me start this post off with a story… I was sitting at my desk, minding my own business, when I hear someone scream out behind me “Oh my G-d!” I turned to see […]

Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work Pie

This pie went through a couple of name changes before I found one that suited it. For Adam’s birthday, I asked what he’d like me to make. He said “Something with chocolate.” Alright, well here goes. As Braz asked when I told him what Adam had requested, “That’s effing [he did not say effing] ridiculous. […]

Matzah Bark

This recipe, like the macaroons, has only a few ingredients and is pretty simple to make. And, oh boy, is it yummy! The best part? It’s kosher for Passover, even if it seems like you’re cheating! On that note, sorry that this recipe is so belated. I got busy last week and just didn’t get […]

Caramel Cupcakes, part 2 (the fun part)

It’s time to prettify your cupcakes! This part was insanely fun for me, probably because I got carried away with the decorating process. A lot went into these puppies! The first thing I did here was make the little chocolate decorations for the top. I used vanilla candy melts, but you could use whatever you […]

Caramel Cupcakes, part 1

Over the next 2 posts, I am going to show you how I made these Caramel Cupcakes with White Chocolate frosting and Dulce de Leche drizzle: These cupcakes were inspired not only by my love of arts and crafts (project!), as well as the fact that I was invited to a cupcake challenge. A cupcake […]
