Stack cakes aren’t traditional layer cakes—they look more like a stack of pancakes piled up with a sweet filling between the layers.

Break it into pieces or cut into shapes with a serrated knife.

Welcome to the very sweet union of the macaroon and the candy bar.

These cookies go by the many endearing names for pigs in Spanish: cerdito, cochinito, marranito, or puerquito. This is the recipe that is the most requested on my blog by Mexicans living abroad.

You may think I have gone off the rails by adding curry powder to cookies, but along with the ground and candied ginger, the combo really wakes up a classic American cookie.

The problem with pumpkin pie is pumpkin. Most pumpkins teeter toward tasteless. Instead, roast butternut squash and you get lush sweetness and kicks of caramel.

Before serving decorate with whipped cream and sprinkle with pecans. 

A lush, yet light dessert that's much better if made a day ahead.

The tart looks homey, but it's oddly sophisticated in its own way and not-so-oddly very satisfying, particularly after a hearty meal.
