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…

Chocolate “Hunny Pots” with Honey Mousse

Thanks to Disney and Blueprint Social for sponsoring this post. I was one of those weird kids who didn’t watch “normal” tv. When I was younger, we had a PBS-only rule in my house, so I could tell you all about what was happening on 3,2,1…Contact or Square One, but couldn’t begin to tell you…

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…

Cinnamon Mousse Tarts

True confession time: these were supposed to be a Cinco de Mayo dessert. The shells are made with Mexican chocolate, the mousse filling is flavored with lots of cinnamon…it was all going to be so perfectly appropriate and on-theme. But, you know, baking and photographing food is only one part of this whole blogging dealio….

Raspberry Mousse Chocolate Cups

Bow ties? Check. Cummerbunds? Check. Spats, top hats, and tails? Check, check, and check! Now that we’re wearing our fanciest of fancy outfits, we can get down to the business of making fancy raspberry mousse chocolate cups. These mousse cups may or may not be Valentine’s Day desserts that never got blogged in time (okay,…

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…
