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…

Hazelnut Orange Chocolate Scones

Hazelnut Scones | SugarHero.com

When I first started thinking about desserts for our Mother’s Day tea party, I knew scones had to be on the menu. Jason and I have done a lot of tea partyin’ in our day—you know, for research purposes—and almost every afternoon tea we’ve attended involves some sort of scone situation. [“The Scone Situation”—good band name, or…

Banana Coconut Macadamia Nut Bread

Whew, you guys dodged a bullet there! I have bad sleeping habits (ie, I don’t) and I generally end up writing these posts late at night, way past my bedtime. Last night I wrote a long, somewhat melodramatic post that was brought on by a sad blog I’d found and my overtired brain. It started…

Dulce de Leche Swirl Pound Cake

I live with a dulce de leche lover. I’d even go so far as to say he’s a dulce de leche lovah. Jason-and-dulce-de-leche-sitting-in-a-tree territory. I don’t even know why I bother making fancy desserts, when I could just boil a can of condensed milk, give him a can opener and a spoon, and completely make…

TWD: Irish Soda Bread

Don’t laugh, but I’ve actually never had Irish soda bread before. Growing up, our St. Patrick’s Day menu was more likely to feature green oatmeal and green pancakes than corned beef and cabbage, but I don’t know what my excuse is now that I am an adult. I guess it’s a combination of ignorance, apathy,…

Passion Fruit-Raspberry Pound Cake

This Passion Fruit-Raspberry swirl bread was the happiest of accidents. I’ve been doing some recipe testing for the book (yes, still, sigh, whimper) and I ended up with a cup of leftover passion fruit pulp, and about a quarter-cup of raspberry puree. After discovering the hard way that passion fruit pulp really, really does not…

TWD: Date Nut Loaf

date-bread-2

Why yes, don’t mind if I do. Dates are one of those foods that I was convinced I hated, probably because of their visual association with prunes–oh, I’m sorry, dried plums. Yeah, good luck with that rebranding, prune industry. Anyhow, I was certain that they were sticky and gooey and gross and I didn’t like…

TWD: Chocolate-Orange Marbled Loaf Cake

marbled-loaf-cake-1

Ahhh it feels good to be back in the warm embrace of Tuesdays with Dorie. I’ve taken more than a few weeks off lately, and although it was necessary, it’s so nice to be back in a routine, blogging with some of my favorite people! Fun fact: this week’s recipe, a Marbled Loaf Cake, looks…
