Cooking by the Book: Chocolate Whiskey Tart (Baked Elements)

The Baked NYC cookbook Baked Explorations is a favorite of mine, so I was thrilled when Shake gave me the two other books in the collection about a year ago. (There’s now a fourth, released this past fall.) I’ve made a couple other recipes from them before. I know that... Read More

Friday Photo—Chocolate for Breakfast
