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 […]

Cake Mix Sugar Cookies

I was so tempted to post my Pumpkin Muffin recipe, but I realized that I have been inundating you guys with pumpkin stuff and should probably take a break so as not to lose the interest of those who aren’t “into pumpkin.” (For the rest of you that are, there’s more to come! squeal!) These […]

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 […]

Just your basic awesome brownies

If I ever make these at home again, which isn’t really a matter of if so much as when so I don’t know why I said that, I will ply you with more pictures. For now, this is all I got. I made these as part of a practical final in my baking class. Our […]

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. […]

Fauxstess Cupcakes

Who doesn’t love a good knock-off? Generally, they’re less expensive than their commercial counterparts, and you can always chalk any spelling errors (Versaci? Rollex?) up to the charms of owning a handmade item. These knock-offs are just as good, if not better than the original, despite their uneven squiggles. (That’s my fault, not the cupcake’s. […]

Homemade Mallomars

When I found this recipe, I knew I had to make them for my dad. Ever since I can remember, my dad has hoarded Mallomars. Why do I use such a strong word? Because they don’t sell them during the summer due to the melt-factor of the cookies. (The main ingredients are chocolate and marshmallow.) […]

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 […]

Perfectly Chocolate (mini) Birthday Cakes and (mini) cupcakes!

I’ve been hearing about Hershey’s Perfectly Chocolate Cake forever (well, at least as long as I’ve been reading baking blogs), and I figured what better occasion to test out the recipe than my boss’s birthday? You know, Mr. “I want chocolate with chocolate on chocolate covered in chocolate.” I’d say this recipe delivered, especially since […]
