Cinnamon Puff Pastry Twists

You know that saying, “Life is short, eat dessert first”? I’ve decided to rewrite it. First of all, it doesn’t make any sense. Even if life was long, I would still be eating dessert first. And last. And probably in between bites of salad. Obviously. Plus, there’s a much more important life lesson I need…

Five Favorite Desserts of 2012

Let me pull on my Cliché Pants for a moment and say that I just can’t believe 2012 has come and gone so quickly. Time flies is not exactly an original sentiment, but that doesn’t make it any less true. It’s been a good year. A packed year. I had a book baby. I had…

Pumpkin Praline Bread Pudding

I know pumpkin pie is all the rage this time of year, but I just can’t hang with it. It’s too…moist. It gives me the heebie-jeebies. It’s coat-your-throat, mush-around-your mouth, make-it-hard-to-swallow goop. The flavor is a yes, but the texture is a big fat no. This opinion makes me a bit of an outlier at…

Cinnamon Bun Bread Pudding

I have made a decision. If I’m ever forced to Sophie’s Choice my desserts, this bread pudding will come out on top. I know. I KNOW. It’s a big statement, and I don’t say it lightly. But this is literally, truly, my favorite thing I have made all year…and maybe ever. It’s that good. I…

Mixed-Up S’mores

Not to be an obnoxious girl stereotype or anything, but I was never a big math fan in school. I majored in English and American Studies, aka Touchy-Feely Theories and the Book Nerds Who Love Them. It was useless, but glorious. Fast-forward a few years, and I now spend my days making desserts, my nights…

Summer Pudding

Summer lovin, had me a blast, Summer lovin, happened so fast… Summer’s not over yet, but it does feel like we might be on the downhill slope of it—or is that just my wishful thinking? Here in southern California we’re still firmly in the grips of scorching days and muggy nights, but I’m starting to…

Sunday Sweets: Microwave Candies

It’s hot outside. How hot is it? Well, if you read Redneck Words of Wisdom, you might be tempted to say that “it’s hotter than a billygoat with a blowtorch.” Or maybe “it’s hotter than two hamsters farting in a wool sock.” [I am a lady and I do not read such websites, but I…
