I unabashedly stole the base of this recipe from my friend Susan’s Nutella Booze Balls. But since I changed or omitted every ingredient other than the butter I think it calls for a new recipe.

When someone I love has a birthday I bake a cake. It’s that simple. It would be so nice to be able to leave it at that, except I can’t… I’m a meddler, and a talker, and in general I can’t leave well enough alone. So, here goes…
Last year after our Passover Seder I took the leftover charoset and turned it into a rolled cake that I served my family a few days later on Easter. It was so good I was thinking about it all year and eagerly awaiting the leftovers so I could once again make this cake. Until I […]
So, here it is… The Boy turned 4 years old last week and he asked for a cake shaped like a dinosaur, wearing a party hat, holding a balloon. I’m just enough of a sucker that I had to make it for him. Even though we were away and I was going to have to […]

Do you see that? That’s a brownie. Yes, it’s gluten free, but if I didn’t tell you and you ate one you would never know. Doubt if you will, but make them and you’ll be a believer.
I’m not including pictures in this post because, well, frankly, if you’ve seen one scoop of slightly beige ice cream you’ve seen them all. Totally unnecessary to repeat. What is NOT totally unnecessary is making and eating this ice cream. Truth be told I’ve never really been a fan of ice cream… until I started […]
It’s funny sometimes the way recipes progress. There are very few, if any, recipes that we home cooks can really call our own. Even if I’ve made something up on the spur of the moment based on the leftovers in my fridge it’s still a pretty safe bet that someone else has made the exact […]
