I’m sorry. This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was just not a winner with me. When I saw “coconut tapioca” my heart fell. I’m already not a huge fan of rice pudding so tapioca didn’t sound too promising. And then Dorie even admitted that it was the “dreaded dessert” at the school cafeteria when she […]
This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was dubbed “Rice Krispie squares for adults” by my colleagues who tasted them. Essentially a shortbready, crispy biscuity base, topped with a chocolate ganache and then topped with something crunchy – Rice Krispies (that’s Rice Bubbles for you lot Down Under!), caramelized Rice Krispies which I didn’t have time […]

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is all about simplicity. This Brown Butter and Vanilla Bean Weekend Cake (p6) is a great advertisement for simple ingredients shining. Butter, flour, vanilla bean, heavy cream, eggs and sugar. You pretty much can’t go wrong, can you? The smell of this cake was enough to permeate my what-seem-to-be […]
