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…

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…

Good news, friends. We are but a few days away from the Arrested Development premiere, which means that you are either a) out of your mind excited because you’re a fan of the show or b) out of your mind excited because you’re not a fan and you can’t wait for me to shut up…

Very Hungry Caterpillar Party Ideas

This post is a little different that my typical recipe-palooza. But when I was looking for inspiration during the birthday party planning process, I appreciated all of the other blogs that shared their ideas and resources, so I’m doing the same in the hopes it will help someone else. If you’re in the market for…

On Cinco de Mayo, if all goes well, I’ll be sleeping. Fingers crossed.   This past week has been really packed and tiring. Then…
