An absolutely wonderful cake; most traditionally served without icing. If you're including kids, might want to add your favorite, but I love it the "old school" way!

Ganache Chocolate Nutella

Ganache Chocolate Nutella by Amos Miller

Use this topping on any thing you wish to enhance with CHOCOLATE, from baked goods to ice cream. It will keep for a couple of days unrefrigerated - a couple of weeks in the cooler. Sprinkle some finely chopped nuts on top of the ganache, if you wish - even some crushed peppermint candy. Gran Marnier and Chambord are great…

Dark Chocolate & Orange Cake with Chia Seeds

Dark Chocolate & Orange Cake with Chia Seeds by Jenny

A very tasty cake with 70% dark chocolate, fresh orange juice and chia seeds! If you are new to chia seeds, I highly recommend trying this recipe. The amount of seeds put in this cake is really small but it still gives the cake an interesting texture without changing its flavor.

NUTTY flourless cookie CRISPS < Brutti ma Buoni > by Foodessa

Got a few egg whites left over from a recipe? Here's a super easy crispy, flourless cookie called < Brutti ma Buoni >. It's an Italian saying...loosely translated as ugly looking (not really) but yummy. Originally made with roasted hazelnuts...however, re-created to include roasted almonds instead. I also reduced much of the…

All this talk about APRONS and Grandmothers got me going on assembling my notes and photos to finally share with you a very cherished recipe my 'Nonna' made for me growing up.

TiraMiSù ExtraOrdinario cake by Foodessa

Swooning over a sumptuously spirited gourmet Italian TiraMiSù. Fluffy, creamy and possessing a lighter velvety texture than most versions. The spirited use of Tia Maria and Grand Marnier are only a part of this dessert's fabulous outcome. Here's my simple method of assembling this delight. ' La Dolce Vita ' from my heart to your…
