    Grapes and Pomegranates! The underdogs of Fall fruits, but the stars of this Cobbler! I had been meaning to make a cobbler all summer, but just ran out of time. And by the time I got around to it, well, it was September, and I couldn’t find any fresh peaches or cherries that didn’t cost an astronomical amount. If you’ve been following me for a bit now, you know I LOVE my apple and pumpkin desserts. However, I wanted to go in a different direction with this recipe, and shine a light on some fruits that usually look great as…

  • 5(0) Shades of Grey Chocolate Cake

      “Chocolate is nature’s way of making up for Mondays.” So I haven’t read the books or seen the movie – but – the movie did come out this week, and I needed an excuse to make a quick little chocolate cake – with 5 – not 50 (can you imagine how long that would take?!) shades of grey frosting! I was worried about using coffee in the cake but I had been hearing for a while that this makes for a super moist dark chocolate cake – and you can’t even taste the coffee. The rumors are true! So…

  • Tiramisu Cake

      “If in doubt…bake a cake.” So I wasn’t reeeally in doubt about baking a cake, because, I mean, why wouldn’t you bake a cake?  🙂 However, I wasn’t sure in exactly the format I wanted to go with my tiramisu cake (once I decided on that). Tiramisu is a traditional Italian dessert, which is usually created with alternating layers of ladyfingers and a mascarpone-egg cream, with some good espresso and rum mixed in. I knew I wanted to do that cool ladyfinger lining on the outside of the cake though – which by the way, technically makes this tiramisu cake…
