Olive Oil Carrot Cake

  Last week I attended the International Food Blogger Conference (IFBC). Such a fun time out in Sacramento, the farm to fork capital. One of the preconference excursions was a trip to Cobram Estate and a visit with the California Olive Oil Council.  Cobram was named the World's Healthiest Extra Virgin Olive Oil at the […] Continue reading >

Chocolate Cranberry Scones

  I've had a love affair with scones since pastry school when I worked at a teashop that made fresh scones daily. Those savory, cheddar cheese, rosemary, flakey delicious pastries. Oh gosh, I want one right now! It was my breakfast every day before class. I would work at the tea shop as the baker […] Continue reading >

Mocha Ice Cream Sandwich

  I'm not sure what you are doing this summer to cool off from the heat, but this is what we are doing! Mocha ice cream held together by two cinnamon spiced brownies. Good grief, I could eat this every single day. I saw this in Sift Magazine and decided to give it a try […] Continue reading >

Texas Sheet Cake

  I have been coming back and forth from California to Texas for well over a decade. I have now lived in Austin for quite a while and in all this time I have never had a Texas Sheet Cake. And I probably would not have had one if it weren't for Bake from Scratch […] Continue reading >

Chocolate Pop Tarts

Who says you can't have chocolate for breakfast? If I could, I would scream to the world that chocolate can be included in any meal. At least I think so anyway. I'm a big fan of chocolate for breakfast. Now I'm not talking about a chocolate bar, but a regular breakfast just tweaked to have […] Continue reading >

Strawberry Valentine Marshmallows

It's been quite a week for us. Just coming back from Cambodia and a 30+ hour travel experience. All things considered, the flight time was well worth the trip. If you haven't been to that region of the world I would suggest a trip is in order. The unique spices, the fresh supply of fruits […] Continue reading >

Instant Pot Triple Chocolate Cheesecake

Like everyone else out there, we got an Instant Pot on black Friday from Amazon. I have been hearing great things about this little gadget and I could resist no longer.  I will say it took me a little while to open it. With the holidays our chocolate shop was swamped and we just had no […] Continue reading >

Chocolate Crepe

The new year is finally here. We have been on a holiday break for the last week and loving every minute of it spending time with family and friends and just enjoying a much needed break from the chocolate business. Before I know it, Valentines day will be here and we will be back to the craziness […] Continue reading >

S’mores Cake

I have this beautiful Bouchon Bakery Cookbook that I haven't had much time to work with. I recently visited with a friend that had made some cookies to share from one of the recipes in the book. Delish is all I'm going to say about that! Those cookies were the final straw. I decided to open my […] Continue reading >
