Hold onto your Chelsea buns! Kimberly and Katie, from A Date with Dateline, are branching out from their usual crime and punishment rough stuff to a more delicious type of rough puff. For this series we are delighting in the return of The Great British Bake Off, with sugar dusted recaps and discussion with just a pinch of snark. Not too much snark or you’ll have a snarky bottom. We're dishing on all the things you love about Bake Off— the properly British, mostly disguised (but sometimes not) innuendo, Noel’s perfect comic timing and choice of sweaters, and the always heart-stopping Hollywood handshake, usually following one or ten of his disapproving death stares. Join us in acting like we know what we’re talking about when it comes to flour choices (isn't semolina a country?), proving times for a proper loaf, and praising bakers along the way for their use of bold spices like our palettes might well be just as refined as the mighty Prue. What is a claggy frangipane genoise, you might ask, and am I in the emergency room or a patisserie if I am having one? Never fear, all the mysteries of pastry will be revealed in...no, no they won't. But, that's why we are on the couch and not in the Bake Off tent. If you love American professional amateur podcasters intently watching a group of amateur British bakers compete in a competition for the glory of national pride and a really heavy looking cake platter trophy with both really just earnestly doing their best then this is the home for you. Fire up the ovens, er... earbuds and on your mark, get set... It’s A DATE WITH THE BAKE!

    Great British Bake Off/Show 7: Semi Final and Final Bakesgravaganza

    It’s time to finally untie the aprons and switch those ovens to off. We have reached the end of another season of The Great British Bake Off. As usual it was filled with laughs- provided chiefly by Noel and Sandy (and many dirty winks for us at home), tears – provided most by Kimberly as … Continue reading Great British Bake Off/Show 7: Semi Final and Final Bakesgravaganza →

    Great British Bake Off/Show 7: Pastry Week

    This episode may be late, but unfortunately there has been a tragedy…One of the personal sort, and the other of the international scandalous sort. Yes. Henry has left the tent. K & K have lots of feelings about rough puff and full puff and what actually constitutes a US vs. UK pie.  But what this … Continue reading Great British Bake Off/Show 7: Pastry Week →

    Great British Bake Off/Show 7: Festival Week

    Great British Bake Off/Show 7: Festival Week

    Festival Week for the bakers means more fringe, more exposed buns and more drama than poor Kimberly’s heart can take! We get a Hollywood Handshake for the ages,  a “home-made” Prue put-down that is so very cringe and one of the most difficult showstoppers to grace the tent. K & K learn how to spell … Continue reading Great British Bake Off/Show 7: Festival Week →

Kimberly and Katie may not be ready for all that jelly (insert groan and eye roll here) after last week’s judging upset. However, they are still ready to discuss the … Continue reading Great British Bake Off/Show 7: Dessert Week →

    Great British Bake Off/Show 7: Roaring 20’s Week

    The results have left us speechless. Well, not really because when it comes the Bake-off there is always something to discuss. But the Roaring 20’s week have left us feeling like we just got a custard pie of our own right in the face. Who is still baking their way to glory and who is … Continue reading Great British Bake Off/Show 7: Roaring 20’s Week →
