Carrot Cupcakes

by Michele Pesula Kuegler February 1st, 2018| Desserts

Basically, it's carrot cake on the go.

When I wrote this carrot cupcake recipe, I was surprised that it had been four and a half years since I shared my original carrot cake recipe. As I type this, it's been five and a half since I originally posted the

On Monday, I shared my ridiculously easy recipe for Eggnog Ice Cream.  While the ice cream is delicious in its own right, a simple ice cream such as this really begs for toppings.  Of course, my kids would prefer to top their ice cream with hot fudge, but that

On Christmas Eve, we celebrate with a six-course meal.  I know, that does sound like a lot of food.  However, the original plan my husband had suggested was a ten-course meal.  After a little discussion, it was determined that six was far better than ten.  With the meal eaten over

Apple Cake

Last weekend I had some free time and two hungry teens at home.  With schedules, like most families, that involve busy days and nights, it's not often that we make time for an indulgent evening of dinner and dessert.  However, last Sunday was quieter than usual, which prompted me

Peanut Butter Truffles

Feel free to call them protein bites, if it makes you feel better about eating them.

My process for creating recipes is varied. Sometimes I'm inspired by a dish that I have at a restaurant or see in a cooking show. Other times I find a recipe online and

Recipe: Double Apple Crisp

by Jane Wangersky September 2nd, 2016| Desserts, Recipes
It’s another one of those years when our Gravenstein apple tree is bearing more fruit than we know what to do with. A couple of years ago, I noted that Luther Burbank once wrote: “It has often been said that if the Gravenstein could be had throughout the year,

Recipe: Mango Whisky Cream

An ice cream dish with a kick -- that was what I wanted to create this week. Something for grownups who haven’t outgrown ice cream yet but whose tastes have matured a little. Maybe it was the thought of Father’s Day, maybe it was recipes like this, or maybe

Banana Caramel “Ice Cream”

by Jane Wangersky June 23rd, 2016| Desserts, Recipes, Simple Solutions
It’s ice cream week here at TT, which means I could’ve simply used ice cream as one of my starting ingredients . . . but somehow I couldn’t get into that. For one thing, my family tends to like ice cream as is, with maybe the occasional ice cream cake

Recipe: Chocolate Charlotte

Lots of moms see Mother’s Day as a break from cooking, and while I’m an exception to that (which has something to do with why I’ve ended up writing cooking articles), your mom should have some time off from the kitchen if that’s what she wants. So here’s a really

Recipe: Cinnamon Banana Pudding

by Jane Wangersky February 11th, 2016| Desserts, Recipes
I couldn’t be around for the initial taste test of this dessert, so before I left I was careful to tell my tasters that though the pudding might look like strawberry or raspberry, it was actually banana and cinnamon. How does a pudding like that end up pink? The secret
chocolate mousse

Recipe: Double Chocolate Vanilla Mousse

Chocolate mousse is one of those French dishes that are really pretty simple once you get over any fear of starting from scratch, and it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day. Yes, you can make it from a mix, but I think it’s better homemade.

molasses candy pudding

Recipe: Molasses Candy Pudding

by Jane Wangersky October 21st, 2015| Recipes, Simple Solutions
Halloween is our theme this time, and it occurred to me that there was more to Halloween cooking than treats (which everyone buys ready-wrapped anyway) and party food. There’s the candy your kids don’t like. What to do with that? I bought some cheap molasses candy and started experimenting.
