Baked Sunday Mornings: Mini Chocolate Brownie Cupcakes

I live by the school year calendar. I lived by the school year calendar since preschool, almost continuously except for one semester after finishing college while working in the tech consulting world (*shudder*) and not taking any classes. Aside from that brief period, I have always been in school in some capacity, whether full-time or […]

Sounds like a GREAT reason to make cake! I got out of bed today? Let me just grab the flour. This week for Baked […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Rainbow Icebox Cake with Homemade Chocolate Cookies

If you stop to think about it, rainbows are pretty damn amazing. A majestic spectrum of color emerges from a just-right mix of rain and sunlight to brighten the sky– and probably your day. And yet, this splendid arc cannot be captured, tamed, or touched– its ephemeral nature makes it all the more magical. The […]

Love Letter to a Bakery in Red Hook: The BAKED Brownie

What says ‘I love you’ better than deep, dark chocolate? To me, the purest confectionary expression of love is a classic treat: BROWNIES. There are a million brownie recipes out there. Some are fudgy, some are cakey, some are heavenly, some are downright terrible. You can stop looking now; this is the best one. My […]
