Spicy Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches

Helloooo, long-lost chums! I just got back from a week in New York City. It was 75% work, 25% play, and 100% humidity fun. (Seriously, though, can we talk about the humidity? I had unsightly sweat stains and Sideshow Bob hair the entire time. NYC, you are not messing around, and for those of you…

Where the Wild Things Are Birthday Party Ideas

Where the Wild Things Are Cookies | SugarHero.com

Oh hey, remember when my son had a birthday over a month ago, and I posted all about his Where the Wild Things Are cake, and promised to follow up with party details shortly thereafter? And remember how I then got distracted by Mother’s Day, and important holidays like National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, and…

Neapolitan Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

Neapolitan Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake | From SugarHero.com

I receive a lot of press releases in my inbox. They usually start with a chipper greeting and an assurance that  “I know your readers will love this!” before seguing into a pitch about gluten-free dog biscuits, or fat-burning pumpkins from Peru, or my personal favorite, a man who invented a new form of psychological…

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Are you wearing green? Gleefully pinching friends and strangers alike? Stuffed full of cabbage? Drunk before noon? Reminiscing fondly about the time St. Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland? What a weird, wonderful holiday this is. In keeping with this solemn celebration of Ireland’s patron saint, I have made you…

Pistachio Shortbread Cookies

Valentine’s Day may be long gone, but you will have to pry my heart-shaped cookie cutter from my cold, dead hands.* We’re talking shortbread cookies today, and I’m convinced that shortbread tastes best when cut into twee heart shapes, dipped in chocolate, and sprinkled with colorful accents. Don’t ask why, and don’t even think about…

Raspberry Almond Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Great news, guys! The universe gave my plan to get more sleep a giant cosmic high-five. Shortly after I posted about my resolution to sleep more and work less, I was stricken with the flu-flu, which is the clever name I just coined for when the influenza-flu and the stomach-flu get together and have a…

Fudge-Striped Shortbread Cookies

I’m baaaaaaaack! [Please note that that should be read in a cheerful, playful voice, not in a scary Jack-Nicholson-from-The-Shining-voice.] I took a short, unplanned hiatus from blogging after the holidays. It was a combination of post-trip fatigue, family illness, major website dramaz (big sigh) and a newfound love of sleep. I didn’t blog, I didn’t…

Soft Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies

Put down the cookbooks! I have found the perfect Christmas cookie. Bold words, I know. But hear me out. First of all, they’re cute. Some might even say “cute as a button.” Second, they’re packed with holiday flavors like cinnamon, ginger, molasses, chocolate […what? chocolate is an every-time flavor!], and orange zest. Third, one batch…
