Quick Sour Cream Cinnamon Rolls

Boy, has it been a LONG week … For the second time in three weeks I have gone AWOL, and I am sorry for that.  I was hoping that after my last bout of family related drama things would quiet down, but it was not to be.  Last week my father was feeling a little funny, and his blood pressure was pretty high, so he went to the hospital.  After testing they found that he would need bypass surgery … sooner rather than later.  He...

Chocolate Banana Bread

I’m a bad baker. Over the weekend I discovered, much to my shock and horror, that I had run out of butter.  It does not happen often and I actually buy two or three pounds at a time as to have plenty on hand at all times.   When I do run out I usually discover it while in the middle of baking something and it honestly makes me feel a little edgy.  For the most part butter is my fat of choice for baking, but in cake baking oil...

Raspberry Nutella Bread Pudding

I will admit, I am always looking for new ways to eat Nutella. It is probably one of the tastiest spreads out there, and I will admit to occasionally eating it straight from the jar.  No, not my proudest moments.  Anyway, I have been up to my eyeballs in pies this week so when it came time to bake something sweet just for me, and not for testing, I decided Nutella would have to be involved. This is a variation on a traditional English...

Buttermilk Brown Butter Scones

It has been pretty cold here, and I have been pretty busy. I have been busy plugging away on my cookbook and that has taken a lot of my time.  So much of my time, in fact, that I have dedicated very little time to recreational baking.  So, when I decided to come out of my writing cave I knew one thing.  Whatever I made would have to be easy.  It would also have to be tasty enough to chase off the winter blahs.  Scones fit the bill...
