Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream

Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream | From SugarHero.com

If you’ve ever walked into a frozen yogurt place, taken one look at the lever for peanut butter yogurt, wrinkled your nose, and thought, “WHO is the one person on the planet who is buying that peanut butter yogurt?” well…it’s me. Hi. Howdy. Sorry ‘bout it. My friends are always making fun of my intense…

Ice Cream Sundae Cake

Quick! Name the summeriest thing you can think of. Sand-crusted weekends at the beach? Long, sticky days at the pool working on your skin cancer tan? Frosty drinks beneath a palm tree? Hearing that horrible Iggy Azalea song one too many times and throwing your radio across the room in disgust? All good answers, but…

Chocolate Profiteroles with Fresh Mint Chip Ice Cream

Chocolate Profiteroles with Fresh Mint Ice Cream | From SugarHero.com

I was shopping in my favorite Armenian market a few weeks ago, and I noticed they were having a monster sale on fresh mint. Four big bunches for 99 cents! Beat that, Whole-Foods-That-Sells-A-Tiny-Sprig-For-$3! So of course I snatched up four bunches and then Insta-bragged about the great deal. I was feeling pretty smug with my…

German Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream + A Chocolate Giveaway!

German Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream

As I type this, there is a tell-tale smudge of chocolate above my lip, and a plastic container that’s been licked clean near my left hand. There’s an empty space in my freezer, a faint whiff of chocolate on my breath, and the smallest, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it pang of guilt as I think of my sleeping husband,…

Thank you to Yahoo Food for sponsoring this post and giveaway! It’s time to give churros a makeover. Obviously, as a fried dough enthusiast, I’m fond of them. They’re comforting and familiar and taste like my childhood—warm summer days spent at amusement parks, eating churros between bites of cotton candy and caramel apples. (I was…

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…

Frozen Hot Chocolate

Welcome to hot chocolate week! I’m into hot chocolate in a major way right now. Like, I sometimes find myself refusing other desserts in favor of an after-dinner mug of chocolate. I know. I never thought I would see the day I’d say no thanks to cookies, but the siren song of hot chocolate is…

Oreo Peppermint Ice Cream Bonbons

As I write this, we are less than 8 hours away from leaving to see family for Christmas. I still have a few work-related things to finish, I haven’t even started packing, I’m pretty sure the wee one is coming down with an ear infection based on his yowling tonight, and oh yes, I’d like…
