TWD DC Pfefferneusse


These were really easy to make. I am loving my cookie scoops. Added bonus that my dog took an entire stick of butter off the counter and I caught him, freeze-frame-style, with it hanging out of his mouth. The glaze took a splash of cream to get to the right consistency. Perfect little holiday cookies.

CTBF MPK Grated Carrot Salad



At first I was like, meh ok carrot salad, whatever. But then I couldn't stop eating it. Happy to find a recipe that will use up leftover carrots!

TWD BCM Caramel Tart



Looks a lot like a pumpkin pie, but nope! I love making caramel. It feels as much like living on the edge as I can muster. This is simple and turned out very well.

CTBF MPK Baked Eggs with Kale and Smoked Salmon


Not a great photo of a not great outcome for me. The eggs definitely needed more than 12 minutes or higher heat to bake through more. This ended up being a runny mess and I was thankful that I only made one. I'll repurpose the other ingredients.

TWD DC Peanut Butter Change-Ups



I was thinking recently that I looooove cookies and don't seem to get around to making them very often. Well that's about to change now that we have officially started going through Dorie's Cookies with TWD. I made the technically I've already made the two bite one chip cookies from the book, too. 

These were perfect peanut butter cookies. I wasn't sure if I would like the addition of the chopped peanuts, but I really do. I brought some to work and one of my cowarkers said they were the softest peanut butter cookies she's ever had. I think they're a great bridging-to-fall cookie.

Pear tart

I'm out of town so don't have much time to post. But this one was a big winner. I love baking with pears.
