Fresh Orange Cake

We're huge fans of citrus-flavored cakes, and this recipe was too good to pass up. It "uses orange zest and fresh orange juice and is topped with a smooth chocolate glaze." The orange flavor is somehow "subtle and pronounced all at the same time," and the chocolate glaze is a perfect complement.

Another plus: something about this cake is bright and joyful, which is just what we needed this week. (Anyone else sitting in the middle of a blizzard?!)

Festive Cream Wafers

 

I love these adorable little cookies from Sweet Pea's Kitchen!

"Butter, whipping cream and flour come together to create melt-in-your-mouth wafer cookies. It is absolutely impossible to have just one of these bite-sized cookies… I am sure you will agree, these tender, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth cookies sandwiched together with a creamy butter filling and just too cute. But not too cute to devour!"

Hungarian Cake

Hungarian Cake

Tena had me at "chocolate-rum cream." You too? Keep reading - it gets better!

This traditional Hungarian cake alternates between thin layers of moist cake and the aforementioned infamous chocolate-rum cream. The icing on the cake? A combination dark chocolate/milk chocolate glaze that hardens on top.

Cream Biscuits with Cheddar and Herbs

Cream Biscuits with Cheddar and Herbs

I was hooked before I even read the recipe. I mean really...what is not to love about these savory biscuits made with with heavy cream, cheddar cheese and fresh thyme?!

"These biscuits are amazing, especially right out of the oven. The texture is soft and slightly chewy, and that outer golden crust seals the deal with a slight amount of crispiness. The cheese? Oh, man. I wish you could have smelled the kitchen while these were baking..." My thoughts exactly.
