Tuesdays with Dorie - Blueberry Crumb Cake

Yum. Yum. Triple yum!! :) I love blueberries, and this week's TWD recipe - Blueberry Crumb Cake - just sounded wonderful. Sihan of Befuddlement chose this recipe. And it was a great choice!

What is really interesting about this week is that I actually baked this recipe last week. As many of you know, I am quite the procrastinator and usually bake on Tuesdays. Well, today was Kade's 1 year checkup and I wasn't sure if I would have time to bake or not, so I baked last week. Go me! I took most of the cake to my mom's office. It was quite the hit. I must agree. I loved it when it was warm, and it was just as good the next day (I saved myself a piece, heehee). I really enjoyed the crunchy crumb topping. The only change I made to the recipe was using pecans instead of walnuts in the topping. I was also able to use fresh blueberries.

I highly recommend trying this recipe if you get a chance. And check out what the other TWD bakers did with this recipe!

That looks so moist and yummy! I also used pecans. I like their flavor much more than walnuts. Great job.

Yay for being ahead of schedule--I know I rarely am. Your cake looks great!

But waiting till the last minute makes everything so much more fun - especially with a little one underfoot!

Seriously, it looks delish - and this one's a keeper!

I liked how you used bigger chunks of walnuts. Wasn't this cake good?

Homemade Cinnamon Dolce Latte

I recently professed my love of coffee and fancy coffee drinks.  After the success of the Peppermint Mocha , I decided to tackle the Cinnamon Dolce Latte, another one of my favorites.  According to the Starbucks website, it has flavors of "cinnamon, butter and brown sugar".  Well, I covered the cinnamon and brown sugar components, but left out the butter.  And you know what, I think it turned out quite well, if I do say so myself!  I honestly wasn't sure if the cinnamon flavor in the syrup was going to be strong enough, but it was.  I will admit to being impatient and not letting it steep for very long, so the cinnamon flavor might develop more if you do actually let it sit and cool off first.  If you wanted it to be even stronger, you could always add a tiny bit of cinnamon oil to it as well.  But be careful -- a little of that goes a long way! How much to make depends on how much you'll actually use.  I just made a single batch this first time, but considering

Thick and Chewy Snickerdoodles

I admit, I love snickerdoodles.   Cinnamon and vanilla?   Yes, please.   What’s funny is that I never really had them much as a kid, just occasionally in the school cafeteria.   I know, ew. Anyway, snickerdoodles were one of the first cookies that the Munchkin helped make when he was little.   He could help dump everything in the mixer (or “loud noise” as he would call it!) and then it was fun for him to roll the balls of dough in the cinnamon sugar before putting them on the baking sheet. Even since then, my go-to recipe for snickerdoodles has been this one by Emeril.   It’s a great recipe, baking up a thin, crispy cookie (at least when I make them!).   However, I was looking for something different this time, something thicker and chewier.   I found this recipe from the blog How Sweet it Is .   I decided to try it, and while I did keep the ingredient list the same I changed up the method a bit to suit me better.   The result?   What I was looking for – thick and

Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

While looking through my notebook, I ran across a recipe that I made oh, about 5 or so years ago. I remember making it. And I remember Sean loving it, which is a miracle considering it has a **shudder** vegetable in it. But I never made it again. I decided why not try it again. I've never made real Chicken Cordon Bleu, and I honestly think I've only eaten it once or twice, so I can't truly compare this casserole to the real thing. I made some changes to the recipe that I found, and in the recipe I've posted below I've made a few tweaks that I think will make it better. It's not a light recipe by any means, but if your New Year's Resolution was to eat healthier, you could probably make some changes to make it health ier ... It was good, but I probably won't make it often. While D and I liked it, Sean and even Kade just picked at it. Oh well. Random, but have I mentioned that school starts back today? I am SO ready. ;) Enjoy! Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole
