Raspberry Nanaimo Pops

We did it, pumpkins! We’ve made it through Thanksgiving and are now hurtling toward Christmas. Soon all the food blogs will be peppermint-this and gingerbread-that (including yours truly, natch) but before we jump to decking the halls, I want to share this sweet little lollipop recipe with you. Raspberry Nanaimo Pops are a variation on…

Deep Fried S’mores

Gather round, everyone, and let’s bring it in for a big group hug. This recipe marks the temporary end of a sweet little tradition around here called Fry-Day.* For the past month-plus, I’ve shared a deep-fried dessert recipe every Friday. It’s been an absolute blast, and I may never look at a root beer float…

Deep Fried Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

Sing with me, friends! “It’s Fry-Day, Fry-Day, gotta fry things on Fry-Day! Everyone’s frying for the weekend! (weekend!)” That’s right, not only do I provide delicious dessert recipes, I’m also your one-stop source for dated Rebecca Black references. You’re welcome. You’re also welcome for this: Just when you thought fresh strawberries couldn’t get any better,…

Deep-Fried Cheesecake

It’s Fry-Day again, so you know what that means! Time to give our arteries their weekly workout, play with scorching oil, and fry desserts that don’t really require frying. What a magical day. Today’s frying victim: Cheesecake. Cheesecake was sort of a bold choice, because we’re not big cheesecake fans at my house. Jason doesn’t…

Deep Fried Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Remember when I dubbed this the Summer of Ice Cream, way back on Monday? I have an addendum. [But don’t worry. The Summer of Ice Cream is still totally on.] However, it’s also the summer of this: Glorious globes of gooey goodness Yes, friends, this is the summer when I make peace with deep frying…

Peach Honey Ice Cream With Lemon Verbena

I love Facebook, and I’m not ashamed to admit it. I know the cool thing is to be "over" it and super into the next hot social network, probably called Ppplrr.nu or something ridiculous like that, but I still have Facebook love. I adore creeping on people’s profiles (why are they all set to private…

Strawberry Rhubarb Pavlova

As you might know, I’m married to a very enthusiastic eater. It’s wonderful. He appreciates all of the desserts I slave over, but he also likes the ones that sort of flop. Making a cake that totally sinks, or cookies that spread into shapeless blobs, doesn’t feel like a complete failure when there’s someone eagerly…

Lemon Blackberry Trifle

If all goes well, this will be the last dessert I truly eat for…awhile. Like a month. Or maybe more. (Pause for dramatic effect.) Don’t get me wrong. I’m still going to keep making and posting new dessert recipes on SugarHero, and I’m still going to taste-test them all to make sure that I love…
