It Takes Talenti!

Obviously, I did not make this gelato. I bought it for a specific reason, and I’m so glad I did. I wanted to buy some high-end chocolate bars for my husband; but since my car’s air conditioner works whenever it wants to, I was afraid I was not going to make it home in time beforeContinue reading “It Takes Talenti!”

Chocolate Whole-Wheat Biscuit Cake

  I decided to take a break from my great grandmother’s recipes and try one I’ve wanted to make since the late 90s. This is a Martha Stewart dessert I got from one of her magazines years ago. I probably never made it before now because I did not have a spring-form pan. Ironically, I did not endContinue reading “Chocolate Whole-Wheat Biscuit Cake”
