Sweet Nothing Du Jour:9/16/12

Tonight’s post is NOT brought to you by Time Warner Cable, my current nemesis, who for the last four months has delightfully been charging me for internet despite the hilariously infrequent service and countless hour-long phone calls to Customer Services.  They’re sending yet another technician to my apartment.  In a week and a half.  Ahem.  […] Read more…

Anise Ice Cream

When I serve this ice cream to other people they usually do a little bit of a double-take upon hearing the name. For some it’s a flavor they’ve never heard of, and for others it’s a flavor that is a little intimidating. Anise, licorice, and fennel can be polarizing; lots of people either love them […] Read more…

Chocolate Almond Raspberry Tart

True Blood’s season finale is today, and while Ezmeralda’s viewing group has all agreed that the show is trashy and terrible and has been kind of beyond awful the last three seasons, we’re still gonna watch it.

So I’m gonna lead with that: This is the Antoinette basque by Masquerade (one of Panache’s sister brands, sometimes known in the US as Harlequin, just to make navigating the US vs. […] Read more…

Plum and Mascarpone Pie, with Coordinating Lingerie

Ugh, Bon Appetit is driving me CRAZY lately. I get it, they have to update and embrace the digital age and revamp the magazine and try to please Gourmet’s former customer base etc. etc., but I’m just finding it so . . . SMUG. It’s like reading GQ, just with food. I’m not knocking GQ, […] Read more…

Chocolate Crack (um, Crack-Up, rather) Cookies

My lingerie and lady-business posts vastly outnumber my recipes at this point, but even so, the recipes are embarrassingly choco-centric. I can’t help it, chocolate is my drug of choice. This recipe is another oldie-but-goodie from Death by Chocolate Cookies, and I’ve been making it since I was in middle school. These cookies are so, […] Read more…
