Easter Cake Push Pops

Easter Cake Push Pops | SugarHero.com

First of all, thank you all so much for the kind words when I indulged in some navel-gazing in my last post. It was really reassuring to hear that everyone wrestles with the same questions about writing for others versus writing for yourself, and it sounds like we’ve all come to similar conclusions. (Besides, who even wants…

Raspberry, Brie, and Chocolate Puff Pastries

So what’d you have for breakfast? Probably something sensible, right? Oatmeal with flax seeds? Whole grain toast? Scrambled eggs? Or are you one of those egg whites only people? (No offense, but what is that about? I mean, have you tasted yolks? They’re delicious! Give them a try and tell me your egg experience doesn’t…

Chocolate Tiramisu

This may sound strange coming from a non-coffee-drinking teetotaler, but I am huge sucker for tiramisu. I think it’s because it triggers all the trifle pleasure centers in my brain, of which there are very, very many. I mean, it basically is a trifle, right? Soft cake-like layer? Check. Creamy layer? You betcha. Beautiful layered…

Pannetone Bread Pudding with Eggnog Crème Anglaise

Merry day-after-Christmas! I hope you all had wonderful ones, if you’re the celebrating type. I myself have been “relaxing” (as much as one can relax with an excitable elf-sized kid running around), eating way too much fudge, and making gingerbread houses, and enjoying other seasonal nonsense. I made these pannetone bread puddings a few weeks…

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…
