27 Oct Pumpkin Pie Filled Cinnamon Cupcake with Mascarpone Whipped Cream Frosting

The flavors of fall. These cinnamon cupcakes incorporate one of the most beloved spices from your standard pumpkin pie spice mix, while subverting the expectation of a simple pumpkin cupcake by putting the pumpkin pie filling inside.   If someone else can bake a cake with three pies inside of it, we can certainly simplify by putting the filling from one type of pie into a single cupcake.   And why choose a standard cream…

24 Oct Apothic Dark Red Wine Cake

Rich, Fruity, and Sinful . A fruity, red wine paired with a dark chocolate cake is one thing. Marrying the two together is another. Bold and rich make this cake a perfect dessert for a sinfully rich dinner.   Some of my favorite wines are sweet, fruity, and complex red wines. And I most often enjoy them with dessert. I had a chance to try another one of Apothic’s seasonal blends, this time their 2013 Apothic Dark—this spring…

My darlings we are now well into October and surrounded by gourds and people using the #toosoon hashtag on Instagram to complain about Christmas decorations infiltrating stores already instead of sharing wildly inappropriate jokes Gilbert Gottfried has undoubtedly made about Ebola somewhere.   What are we to do with ourselves then, on the cusp of yet another holiday season? Take a moment….

08 Oct Cream of Celery Soup

Savory, sweet, and subtly rich. Celery, usually a supporting star in the kitchen, lends itself wonderfully to soup. The subtle sweetness, and tinge or earthy notes play wonderfully with a rich homemade stock, and just a few spoonfuls of heavy cream to round it out. I adore soup. I yearn for it. I crave it. I miss it. Then the temperature drops. Okay. It gradually lowers a few degrees. I don’t care. I’m making soup. And lots…

06 Oct Pomegranate Cupcake with Dark Chocolate Buttercream

Tart, light, and petite. These cupcakes are delicate in flavor but layered with it. Pomegranate and chocolate come together in this chiffon-cake-based cupcake for a light, moist texture.   October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. This is a topic that hits very close to home for me. In 2010, a very good friend of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer. Since then, she has been through chemotherapy, a double mastectomy, and many reconstructive surgeries. She…

03 Oct Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Coffee Edition

Monday was apparently National Coffee Day (who decides these things, one has to wonder?) and as that sweet caffeinated elixir is what keeps me alive and free from committing murders, I thought I would share with you some of the best coffee-related things I have hoarded on my Pinterest boards, my darlings.   (If you do not drink coffee I am terribly sorry, please feel free to go and enjoy a nice hot cup of…

01 Oct Garden-Fresh Fetuccine Alfredo

  Rich, Creamy, and hearty. Using homemade pasta in a dish like this makes that much better. The thick, hand rolled fettuccine gives this classic a rustic taste and layers it with delicious homemade flavor.   Fettuccine alfredo has always been a favorite in my house. Anytime a recipe calls for exorbitant amounts of butter, cream, and cheese, count us in. And the fact that it’s based around pasta? It can’t get any better than that.  …
