Tagalong Crescents Recipe

tagalong-crescents-1

It’s that time of year again.  The time when Girl Scouts everywhere literally are everywhere, selling their Thin Mints, Samoas and Tagalongs.  I’m talking about Girl Scout cookies, people.

Yes, the little darlings are out en masse, camped out in front of every supermarket in town, hawking their wares. And, they are good at it, too!  Seriously.  They must throw in a Dale Carnegie course or two when they sign you up!  It would take the most hardened of hearts to resist those sweet, angelic faces. I don’t know about you, but my steely resolve goes right out the window each time I look into a pair of those sad and pleading eyes.  So, I buy cookies – lots of them.  And then, I take them home and try to figure out what the heck to do with them!

This is my niece, Samantha.   She’s a Daisy.  Sammie takes her Girl Scout cookie selling very seriously.  Could you resist that face?  I didn’t think so.  I bought ten boxes from her.  Is there a twelve step program for this?  If so, sign me up.  read more >>

Wowie, wow, wow, WOW!!!  Dorie’s Cranberry Lime Galette packs a huge wallop!  To be honest, I didn’t expect such a bold, “in your face” punch of flavor – but I got one.  This galette is the simplest thing in the world to make, but make no mistake, there’s nothing …

Oh, Happy Day!  Dorie’s new cookbook has finally arrived!  I picked up my copy of Around My French Table last week and was in love before I got past the dust cover. The book is filled with over three hundred of Dorie’s favorite recipes, culled from her time spent …

Why, oh why do these Daring Bakers challenges always sneak up on me? It happens every time!  I woke up at 4:00 this morning in the kind of cold sweat that could only mean that today was the “reveal date”.  And, I had nothing.  Absolutely nothing.  Again.  So, …

Holy Cannoli!

When I was a little girl, one of my family’s weekly rituals was going to Mass at St. Clare’s on Sunday mornings and then stopping at Enrico’s Bakery on Morris Park Avenue afterwards for pastries.  We did this every Sunday without fail.  We’d get a big box filled …
