Addendum to the Chocolate Chip off

May 15, 2019

If you haven’t seen my recent posts on the Chocolate Chip Off, this post will make no sense whatsoever. I’ve been on a Chocolate Chip Cookie binge. I baked, then had people judge, but then came up with what, I think was the winner, after the fact. And late tallies changed my previous numbers. God! Nothing is ever easy! Well, it turns out the Pan Banging cookies weren’t…

The Chocolate Chip Off Part Deux

May 4, 2019

It’s 11:50 p.m. on Friday night, but I promised the results today, so technically, I’m still in under the wire! If I ever mention that I think it will be fun to bake four different kinds of cookies then bring them in for morning radio shows to test, someone please slap me, and lock me in my room, OK? I was up at 3 a.m. Thursday morning, baking…

I love them all, especially Reef, my daughter’s boyfriend, who entered sainthood the day he served as spotter — helping me pinpoint where my intestinally challenged dog had left lovely gifts on my living room rug.…

The Carrot Cake Off – with Fran’s Clearly Superior Carrot Cake

April 7, 2014

Pretty much every baker in the United States has a carrot cake recipe.  Each one is convinced that hers/his is the absolute best. Clearly, this can’t be true because mine is actually the best.  It wasn’t always the best, but I’ve finessed and finessed it and now I’d put it up against anyone’s carrot cake recipe, even Joan, the queen of cakes.  (My sister-in-law, Donna is going to…

Baking Biscotti

Biscotti That May Get You Blacklisted

February 7, 2014

If you have an Italian grandmother who bakes biscotti, you should probably stop reading right now. Once you have this recipe, don’t blame me if she turns on you, and don’t say I didn’t warn you. OK, my conscience is clear. I started baking biscotti more than 20 years ago. I was never really a fan of them when I was young because they were always the same;…
