TWD: Grinch Blondies

So how do you get a 15 year old boy to help you bake? You agree to make your food in hideous colors.... so I give you Grinch Blondies!

These are a rewind of Chewy Chunky Blondies. This time around we used white & dark chocolate chips and caramel nuggety things, which didn't give the batter much to cling to, but despite the horrifying color, they are really good.... and they do give you brownie belly so I guess we did something right!

FFwD: Sweet & Spicy Cocktail Nuts

Hey lookie there! I have a post! I guess the holidays are taking advantage of me.

Well no excuses because these sweet and spicy nuts were super simple. The only real hurdle is figuring out how much and which spices you will toss in.

My honey is convinced the finished product is full of evil things that are really bad for you because they are really really addictive. (I promise there is absolutely no bacon in there.)

You can find the recipe for Sweet and Spicy Cocktail Nuts, on page 18 in Dorie Greenspan's book Around my French Table. And be sure to join the club by becoming a member of French Fridays with Dorie.

Oh hey did you guys catch Dorie on the Martha Stewart Show... it was pretty great. She seriously made Martha look like an Amazon woman.

TWD: Maple Tuile... Crumbs...

Uhm yeah so my maple tuiles are not very tuile like at all.... obviously! I won't bore you with the details of how this came to be.

You can go see how these really should look by visiting our host this week Clivia at Bubie's Little Baker.
