Chocolate Bundt Cake
Chocolate Bundt Cake - March 15, 2012

I took slices of this chocolate bundt cake on a road trip to Portland this week. Slathered with chocolate buttermilk icing, it's a great travel treat made with a blend of whole wheat and all-purpose flours, lots of yogurt, and the darkest brown sugar I can get my hands on.

Lemony Olive Oil Banana Bread

Certain adventures call for the perfect banana bread, and this was one of them. A moist, ridiculously good banana bread recipe. A banana bread that is chocolate studded, lemon kissed, and made with whole wheat flour (and olive oil) - from Melissa Clark's new book.

No Bake Chocolate Cake
No Bake Chocolate Cake - July 2, 2011

A no bake chocolate cake I make when I'm feeling particularly lazy and need a crowd-pleaser of a dessert. Good-quality dark chocolate, cream, and whatever you like to infuse the cream - you're set.

Whole Wheat Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Whole Wheat Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies - July 17, 2010

I'm posting this recipe not because these are the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies ever of all time. They're good, but...I'm posting the recipe, because they make amazing ice cream sandwich cookies. And it's prime ice cream sandwich season.

Chocolate Loaf Cake
Chocolate Loaf Cake - June 27, 2010

Certainly not the most attractive cake I've ever baked - but right in so many other ways. Deep chocolate flavor, barely set center, indiscernible crumb, thin Muscovado crust...if you can get over how it looks, you'll love it.

Rosemary Olive Oil Cake
Rosemary Olive Oil Cake - May 23, 2010

A cake I made for the Kim Boyce potluck at 18 Reasons - Incredibly moist, golden-crumbed, flecked with rosemary, and dotted with big and small chocolate chunks, I'd make this again in a heartbeat.

Chocolate Puddle Cookies
Chocolate Puddle Cookies - February 9, 2010

I came across a cookie when I visited Portland, it was a crackle-edged puddle of chocolate with a texture that made me think of the collision between a soft meringue and a fudgy brownie.

Bittersweet Chocolate Tart
Bittersweet Chocolate Tart - December 30, 2009

The little black dress of my tart repertoire - bittersweet chocolate with a thin brown sugar crust. The filling is a dark chocolate ganache, the consistency of thick frosting, set off by the crispness of the crust, finished with a dusting of cocoa powder, and a pinch of sea salt.

Sparkling Ginger Chip Cookies
Sparkling Ginger Chip Cookies - December 4, 2009

I made these for Lottie & Doof's 12 DAYS OF COOKIES. They are tiny, bite-sized holiday cookies made with two kinds of ginger and lots of shaved chocolate. The turbinado sugar crust gives them a bit of crunch which is a nice contrast to the ooey-goey chocolate.

Basic Chocolate Cake
Basic Chocolate Cake - April 5, 2009

This is a rich, decadent, but basic chocolate cake recipe. It is chocolate-packed, moist, and not-too-complicated. Baked and served in one pan slathered with a layer of fresh chocolate whipped cream frosting.

The perfect bite-sized chocolate chip cookie. Tiny, thin, golden, crisp, a bit nutty with plenty of shaved chocolate.

Nikki's Healthy Cookies
Nikki's Healthy Cookies - September 14, 2008
