Yo gang.  Rachel is allergic to blueberries.  HOW FAST CAN I EAT THIS ENTIRE DELICIOUS CRUMB CAKE ON MY OWN?

Very fast.

Tuesdays With Dorie – French Yogurt Cake

Posted in food on March 17, 2009 by hoagiefest 2020

This cake is really, really good.  And really, really easy.  I didn’t have to muddy up any mixers or food processors.  I might have used three bowls, a whisk, and a wooden spoon.  EASY.

Couldn’t find lemon marmalade for the glaze, so I used orange marmalade.  I didn’t strain it because I was lazy.


Sorry I don’t have more to say.  There’s not a lot to ol’ Mike these days.

Here is a picture of a pony.

Tuesdays With Dorie – Lemon Custard

Posted in food on March 10, 2009 by hoagiefest 2020

Hot diggity dog!

I’m coming off of a bad streak.  The last four or five recipes either half-flopped or totally bombed.  Nothing turned out well, which is a pain in the balls because all of the recipes looked so good.

And then there was plain old boring lemon custard.  Rachel wasn’t interested.  I was only mildly interested, and I haven’t had luck with a pudding since butterscotch pudding some time ago.  Floating Islands were an unmitigated disaster.

Lemon Custard is probably the easiest thing I’ve had to do yet, since the day that I decided to bake a blueberry pie from scratch for this crazy baking experiment.  And it was good!  So good!  Only mildly lemony (I forgot to put in the optional lemon extract that I bought), creamy, and kind of eggy (which Rachel hated).

More custard for me.

Good bye, Internet.

Tuesdays With Dorie – Chocolate Armagnac Cake

Another brass-tacks post because I’m busy with…

…our new puppy Harley Quinn.  She is full of special magic dog doo, and some day she will spread it throughout the world.  For now, we’re lucky enough to have it all over our very own carpet.

And yes, she was named after…

This cake was yummy.  I still haven’t EVER had a cake that rose and looked like a cake.  This is another failed cake that turned into a BIG PRUNE BROWNIE.  So good.  Fudgie.

I used scotch whiskey (left over from Butterscotch Pudding) instead of armagnac.  Welp, gotta run.  Mess to clean up and all.
