There is a little jumping up and down going on around the cookie baking world.  Dorie’s new cookbook is coming out tomorrow!  Woo hoo!

Since BWJ is now over (boo, and wow! so impressed with everyone who stuck with it!), the timing is perfect for starting Dorie’s Cookies.

We’ll keep the same baking schedule – BCM will post on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays, and DC will post on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays.  If there is a fifth Tuesday, that will be a rewind week.

We’re looking forward to the next adventure with you all!

Bake on!

TWD: Some big news from Dorie!

Such fun and exciting news! Dorie will be doing an every-other-week column called Everyday Dorie for the Washington Post food section. Each column will have a recipe, sometimes sweet, sometimes savory.

The first column is here today and will be in print on Wednesday. It’s for a heart-shaped cookie that’s big enough to share. The recipe makes two cookies that serve two to four people each (or one if you’re really dedicated.) Part of the fun is seeing how people decorate them, and she’s really looking forward to your creations.

She’s hoping that people will post pictures and then, on Thursday, at 1 pm ET, there will be a live online chat with everyone who’s interested. If you’d like to be part of the conversation, click here

If anyone wants to post pictures of what they made with the recipe, the tags are:


Looking forward to joining our favorite cookbook author for more recipes, baking tips, and deliciousness!

Happy Birthday, Dorie!

Wishing you the happiest of days today. I know it will be filled with smiles and sweets. What more could you ask for.

I have Marie-Helene’s Apple Cake in the works right now, in your honor. Its one of my husband’s favorites.

Much love from me and all of us here.

Dorie’s Birthday

October 24th is Dorie’s birthday! If you would like to make a recipe from any of her books in honor of her birthday, I will put up a LYL post up on October 23rd for those would like to participate.

Get out your cookbooks and find something super fun.  I already know what I am going to bake up. :)
