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…

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…

Thank you to Diamond of California for sponsoring this post. As usual I have a lot of blah blah and yadda yadda about the recipe down below, but if you’re in a pre-Thanksgiving rush and would like me to cut to the chase, here are the bullet points you must know about this gorgeous pie:…

Mint Chocolate Chip Mousse Brownies

So I do a little co-op preschool with some friends, where we take turns hosting and planning lessons and bringing snacks. This week it was my turn to be in charge, so I made some healthy mini pumpkin muffins for the kids—you know, low sugar, whole wheat, entirely virtuous. You could practically see little nutritional…

Caramel Panna Cotta with Poached Pears

This is it! The home stretch! The last pear recipe this fall, before I succumb to the pumpkin fever that’s sweeping the nation and paint my face orange in a woefully misguided attempt at fitting in! Are you ready to rumble? Previously in my not-at-all official pear series, I shared recipes for Pear Cupcakes with…

Chocolate Raspberry Mousse Cake

Pumpkin shmumpkin. You have months left to enjoy pumpkin desserts! Let’s forgo the gourd for a minute, change it up a little, and say goodbye to the last of the berries with this stunning Chocolate Raspberry Mousse Cake. I don’t go around calling things “food porn” on a regular basis, so instead, can we just…

Crème Fraîche Panna Cotta

This one’s going to be short and sweet, because, hey! It’s Saturday! Ain’t nobody got time for reading long meandering blog posts. There are lawns to mow and trails to hike and friends to brunch with, or maybe just couches to nap on—whatever floats your Saturday boat. No judgment here. I did want to pop…

Grapefruit Tarts

I am such a sucker for a good deal. While shopping recently, I noticed that the store was selling 6 grapefruit for $1. Instantly my grapefruit alert levels skyrocketed from Complete Apathy to I Need Six Grapefruit IMMEDIATELY. I tossed them in my cart with Michael Jordan aplomb and gave myself giant pats on the…
