Midweek Roundup: "Delivered to Three Happy People"
Photo by Joan Alpha Baker Joan Joan  started making her toffee at 6:00 p.m. and was writing about it at 1:00 a.m., so she must have been exhausted by the time she wrote about it, what with "the long stirring and constant temp checking."  Definitely the time...

Midweek Roundup: "Dangerously easy to eat"
Photo by Jen Evil Cake Lady The question of the week was "Are these real madeleines?"  Jen , for example, said she had never tried a madeleine before, so she has "no idea if this is true to the original or not," but it is a "lovely soft little chocolate cak...

Chocolate Sweetheart Madeleines
This would be quick and easy if you didn't use mini-madeleine pans and if you didn't have to glaze the mini-madeleines with a tiny paint brush (that shed red bristles on the tiny cookies).  Also, if your mini-madeleine pans had some definition, you might en...
