Baker's Dozen: A Batch of Sweet Links


Happy Friday! Happy November! The weather's cold, so here are plenty of sweet and buttery ways to start building up your winter insulation:

Psycho Killer? Nah, Psycho Donuts! Just take a gander at this menu. And get me back to the Bay Area! Thanks Mary for the tip.

What would Alice B. Toklas say: No, I'm not spouting any views on the subject, but I found this pretty hilarious.

Vanilla delight: Vanilla Lover's vegan confection gift set, from Allison's Gourmet.

The secret ingredient is crack: Crack Pie, as made by Apron Anxiety.

Sweet Discovery: I'm enjoying the new blog of Love and Quiches owner Susan.

Sweet and Salty perfection: Milk Chocolate Cream Pie with a Pretzel Crust.

Twist and shout: Auntie Anne's now offers a baking mix which is the foundation for some interesting recipes, like pretzel dough Monkey Bread and more!

Fascinating flavor: Kabocha Salted Caramel Cupcakes sound pretty amazing.

Over the moon: iconic Michigan foodie mecca Zingerman's makes homemade moon pies, and they'll ship too. (thanks Margaret for the tip!)

Sweet Specialty: Reader Colleen alerted me to something called the Calypso Bar, a "buttery cookie layer topped with toasted almonds, lime, and coconut." Sounds worth a trip to Nashville, where Calypso Cafe is its home.

Nutella Cheesecake Brownies. The three most wonderful words!

Stuff it: Magic In the Middles cookies, via King Arthur Flour!

Sweet Memories: start gearing up for Turkey day with these easy-to-make turkey-shaped confections.

We ladies of This Charming Candy went to Psycho Donuts on Halloween (I was visiting for the weekend) and they were really incredible! I had a Rocky Road. Yum.

oh, you are going to love Calypso Cafe, all of it! I lived in Nashville for 3 years in the mid-90's, and I still crave Calypso, I make frequent trips back there just for it! My favorite is the half BBQ chicken, spiced sweet potatoes, St. Lucian Rice, and the Boija Muffins, side of fruit tea. I always, always buy two Calypso bars - one to enjoy there, one to take home and enjoy later. Yum, can't wait to see what you think of it!
