I’m not sure how many people read this regularly, so I have no idea if I’ll get any responses, but here goes:

  • Do you have any recipes that look fun but haven’t had a chance to try? If so, what are they? I’m always looking for new ones.
  • Do you find the pictures of the baking process beneficial or should I just post one of the final product?
  • Have you tried any of the recipes on here? If so, which did you try and how did it turn out?

And of course, if you have anything else to share, I’d love to hear it!

    Not a bad question at all. I have your score chip cookies and I adored them! I would make more of your recipes but I haven’t enough time ATM. I really like all of your photographs, event the mid-baking ones. I have some interesting recipes that I don’t have time to try, I will see if I can find them
    Thank you for the great Blog!

    I’ve been a lurker for awhile on both your blogs, but just wanted to say that I love the pics you have of the entire baking process – I think they’re helpful! I really would love to try all of your recipes, but I just don’t have tons of time right now. I’m a HUGE fan of cooking and baking (The Food Network is almost always on in my house!) so what you’re doing here with the recipes, pictures and personal suggestions/anecdotes is totally up my alley! Thanks!

    Hi, I chanced upon your blog just yesterday only when i was surfing for cupcakes blogs, and u know what? I adore your blog. I cant wait for your recipe database to grow. I think your pictures are a great help.
    I like baking, but it is hard to find time to do it (chasing after my 10 mth old) on weekends (i am a full-time working mother).

    I would defintely want to try your banana bread and some of the cupcakes recipes you have 🙂

    I love the pictures, personally. The more pictures the better! I haven’t tried any recipes yet, but I want to. Especially the oreos.

    Just discovered this blog a couple of days ago, through somewhere else, not sure where. I love the pictures. The first day I tried the Chocolate Chip Banana Bread and loved loved loved it! I plan to try a few more over the next few weeks!

    I find dessert recipes particularly tempting, although I’m not much of a dessert eater. I like to share them with my neighbors.

    I like the dessert recipes at epicurious, but stress regularly about not doing it right.

    hi. I’ve only been reading your blog for a few weeks, but I made the oreos last week, with smashing results. Big rave reviews. My modification was not to the ingredients, but to the assembly. I chilled the dough for about an hour and then used a small ice cream scooper. Rolled the scoops into balls and then thumb pressed them down on the cookie sheet. It worked extremely well and it resulted in app. 45 sandwich cookies.

    Very good.

    I’ve tried the cookie dough cupcakes; I didn’t really care for the texture that much, but they were yummy

    Someone told me about this wierd cake recipe that doesn’t use eggs. I might try it this weekend. Here it is:
    Chocolate Wacky Cake

    • 1 1/2 cups flour
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 3 tablespoons cocoa
    • 1/3 cup cooking oil
    • 1 tablespoon vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1 cup cold water

    Mix dry ingredients in 9 x 9-inch pan. Make 3 holes; pour oil, vinegar and vanilla in separate holes. Pour water over all. Mix well with fork or hand mixer. Do not beat. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Leave in pan and frost (with chocolate fudge icing) while still warm.
    » No eggs, no dairy — still very good. And only one pan to clean up! And all homemade!

    I’ve always found that pictures of the process are very helpful. I try to post pictures of each step with all my recipes, just so people know what the stuff is supposed to look like.

    The pictures are great — I just found you today and made another comment on your candy corn! — but the wait on Flickr is a little bit of a pain. I wish you could upload the pictures without linking them elsewhere which slows the process of looking at more recipes.

    I have a mean farfel cookie recipe that was my grandmother’s that I’ll share another time since I do not have it in computer form yet…Perfect for Passover.
