Pecan and Peach Texas Blondie

This Blondie recipe features fresh Texas peaches and pecans. Having a generous amount of chocolate and butter, it and retains a lot of moisture when baked. I use French caramelized chocolate by Valrhona for my Blondie to make it fancy and luxurious. Its texture is delightfully soft and flavorful, and the color is golden caramel — it’s like our Texas early summer, you’ll!

Tequila Tasting Party Recipes: Tipsy Tres Leches

Long time ago, I was on a quest to try as many different versions of Tres Leches in Austin as I can. For almost a year, I’ve been ordering, buying, and making it for dessert. It was fun! As a result, I found my favorite to buy (Downtown WholeFoods’ Tres Leches Parfait) and developed a few my favorite recipes to make at home (with baked milk and with cajeta, caramelized goat’s milk). I prefer versions where milk is the main source of flavor — no other ingredients like fruit, nuts, chocolate, etc. are allowed to overpower milk’s delicate and dreamy nature. For me, Tres Leches it’s a study on milk flavor. The recipe below is part of my ¡Viva Tequila! tasting event, featuring extra anejo tequila as an ingredient for the sponge feeding.
