Satsuma Hazelnut Cake-28-2
Satsuma & Hazelnut Cake

Hi! I’m here! I’m alive! There hasn’t been much time for baking and blogging around these parts lately, but I assure you it’s not for lack of jonesing for oven time. In the span of the last three weeks I’ve found myself in Palo Alto, Napa,...

Pumpkin & Chocolate Chip Crumble Cake

Before last weekend, it had been far too long since I’d baked something. Like, three weeks too long. Now, I understand that for a normal person, that may seen like a perfectly reasonable, nay, healthy, interval of time to let pass between the baking, making and consumption...

Mint Chocolate Chip Cake

A few years ago, just a few short weeks after I had staked my claim on this little corner of the internet, I hopped across the pond for a quick week’s trip to the old sod, or as you may be more familiar, Ireland.  My...
