TTW: Snickers Brownie

I know the site has been a little delayed lately.  Don’t worry.  Tia is still cranking out her weekly’s.  It’s the fault of the blogger they have not made their way to the web.  I’m currently in the works to correcting this problem. Here is a decadent one to keep you on a sugar high …

TTW: Snickerdoodle

The snickerdoodle is a classic cookie.  Funny part is the fact I’d never really had a snickerdoodle before meeting Tia.  She introduced me (and my daughter) to the world of a soft sugar cookie rolled in a cinnamon/sugar coating.  The concept sounds so simple, but as we’ve discovered through several tastings of snickerdoodles all over …

TTW: Rainbow Cake

From the moment I saw the creation of Rainbow Cake I’ve been gushing, “We must make this.”  Tia answered the call before I had a chance.  It didn’t mean I was out of the loop.  In fact, we had many conversations about it before it was created.  But Tia did all the heavy lifting to …

TTW: Lemon Poppy Seed Bread

There is something about April that reminds me of lemons.  Maybe it’s the matching yellow from the rough skin of the fruit to what it supposed to be the sun shining in the sky.  Or maybe it’s the fresh citrus smell to match the blooming tulips.  It may even be the hope there will be …

TTW: Banana Bars

When a banana passes that day where you want to eat it straight out of the peel, it turns into something delicious.  Sure, there’s no possible way you are going to eat it as a mushy mess and unless you have a baby in the house, no one else will either.  Bakers all over the …

TTW: S’more Cookies

Even though I’m late in getting the treat to you, it wasn’t because Tia didn’t do it.  She’s kept up with her treat of the week and it is I who has delayed in getting it to you.  After doing breads and bars, Tia wanted to mix it up with something different.  It was the …

TTW: Hawaiian Bread

We’ve been buried under grey clouds and rain for far too long.  Last week it even snowed.  To fight away the dreaded winter blues, Tia showed up with a tropical quick bread.  Right from the start, the cheery yellow color brightened the room (and day).  The texture was typical of a quick bread with a …

TTW: Red Velvet Cheesecake Bars

Like millions of other women out there, Tia and I are addicted to Pinterest.  It’s a hotbed for pinning different ideas and brainstorming our own twists on them.  One of our baking differences is Tia is traditional about following a recipe while I don’t sweat the details.  And at different times, we both are left scratching …

Tia’s Treat of the Week: Coconut Pie Bars

Tia and I both have “real” jobs.  The dreaded “day job.”  But we really don’t dread it that much because we work together and talk about baking a lot.  We have the same job of being supervisors over a staff of 14 each.  Part of our job involves making sure our staff knows how much we …
