Chocolate Soup With Croissant Croutons

Chocolate Soup | From SugarHero.com

So if you’re anything like me—and I know that you are, that’s why we’re such good friends—you’re basically always craving chocolate, but you’re also always trying to trick other people into thinking you’re healthy. “Oh, I couldn’t possibly have a cookie right now,” you say, lying through your teeth, “I just taught three spin classes…

Best of SugarHero 2014

Happy last-day-of-the-year, folks! All you cool kids probably have plans to party like it’s 1999. I myself am a wizened old lady who is battling the plague (or maybe just a really bad virus) so I’ll be showing myself to bed at a reasonable hour and reminiscing about my youthful New Year’s Eve escapades. Ah,…

Apple Cranberry Gouda Puff Pastry Roses

Apple Cranberry Gouda Puff Pastry Roses | From SugarHero.com

Can we agree that we’re all Thanksgiving-ed out? If you don’t celebrate it, you’re like, “Shut up with your dumb national holiday already! And PS those Pilgrim hats look stupid.” And if you do celebrate it, you’re like, “I have 647 things to buy at five different grocery stores today and a whole house to…

Floating Eyeball Jello Shots

Floating Eyeball Jello Shots | From SugarHero.com

I like to think that we have an unspoken understanding, you and I. Sometimes I’ll post long recipes with a lot of fiddly steps, and you probably read these while muttering to yourself, “Yeah, like I really have time to make that. I have a life, thank you, unlike some food bloggers I could name.”…

Brownie Bread Pudding

Brownie Bread Pudding | From SugarHero.com

There are two kinds of people in the world: the kind of people who aren’t sure if they have extra cookies or brownies just lying around their house, all shrugged shoulders and devil-may-care about it, and the kind of people who know with pinpoint accuracy the location of every item of sugary value within a…

Pistachio Pie with Lemon Whipped Cream

Pistachio Pie | From SugarHero.com

I don’t trust my own food judgment sometimes. As you might imagine, this can be problematic for someone who makes their living working with food. The problem is, I reeeeaaaally like desserts. As in, fourth grade style, write-a-MASH-note-to-a-piece-of-cake like-like desserts. And I also enjoy less popular ingredients and flavor combinations. So when I come up with…

Banana Bread Tiramisu

Banana Bread Tiramisu | From SugarHero.com

I love banana bread. I love tiramisu. I love making recipes with a bajillion components (although I kind of hating writing out those long recipes…sigh). I really love putting on my fancy pants and going to town with frou-frou decorations. So obviously, these banana bread tiramisus in edible chocolate wrappers are basically my own culinary…

Petit Fours

Petit Fours | From SugarHero.com

I used to roll my eyes at Mother’s Day and voice unoriginal complaints about how it’s a “Hallmark holiday,” but now that I’m a mom? I’ll take that Hallmark card and those flowers, thank you very much, and I wouldn’t say no to a box of chocolates, either. I had a fantastic Mother’s Day yesterday—the…
