Bourbon Brioche French Toast

Contrary to my numerous boozy food posts, I don’t have it readily available at home. Every now and then, I’ll have a bottle of bourbon around for a Manhattan or an Old Fashioned cocktail, and when I do, I can’t resist a boozy recipe. Recently, I had a bottle in the house, and thought it…

Bourbon Bacon Skillet Cookie

This recipe for a bourbon bacon skillet cookie fulfilled all of my needs for a boozy, bacon filled, chocolate decadent dessert.  And It even hit all of my comfort food buttons. I’ve been wanting to make a skillet cookie for a while now, but needed to give it a little kick.  I originally was going…

Kentucky Bourbon Cake

I actually made this cake a few years ago, and meant to make it during the Derby weekend, but decided to spend that day eating my weight in food! I decided to make this over the weekend to have with my morning coffee, but instead of making a larger pound cake, I made a single…

Apple Cider Cake with Bourbon Cider Glaze

If there are two things I love, its fall and boozy desserts.  Ok, there are a million more things I love, but when fall arrives I often think of cider donuts I would buy at the local cider mill, still hot with a little grease staining the bag, a hot cup of cider (spiked), or…

Friday Things

Five weeks to go before the big move at work and each week is getting more hectic than the previous.  Our moving crates arrived today and I’ve literally run laps around the building grabbing artwork, prepping them for the new offices. I’m also ramping up for my holiday baking season.  I still have a few…

Brown Butter Bourbon Banana Bread

  You guys, I’ve finally found love again. I didn’t think it would happen this soon, but I was secretly hoping. His name is Charlie. We’ve only been together a week, but I can tell that it’s going to be forever, or at least a very long time. He’s nothing like the last guy I…

Pretzel Turtles with Bourbon Caramel

I made these originally last Christmas for the office and loved them. I wanted to make them again thisfor my parents who’ve never tried them, but do a little something different. I had a bottle of bourbon in my cupboard (this year’s new “it drink”) and decided to add a little to my caramels. Oh…

Bourbon Pecan Pie

I can’t tell you how excited I am to have a requested dessert. Most of the time I bake things as experiments, testing them out on friends and coworkers, but this is different. Every Thanksgiving, my office requests that I make pecan pie for our potluck, friends and family ask me to make one for…

Tres Leches Cake

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I decided to make a tres leches cake……a boozy, tres leches cake.  I usually make churros and hot chocolate, but I was in the mood for something I’ve never made before.  I didn’t realize it, but tres leches is really like an angel food cake soaked with milk (tres…
