You guys. It has been so long since I’ve made a chocolate dessert. And by “so long” I mean almost 3 weeks. Sugar heroes cannot live on giant cakes and churros and strawberry bars alone. We need our chocolate too! Consider this Chocolate Raspberry Almond Truffle Tart my humble apology to chocolate. I’m sorry for…

Blueberry Crumble Pie

Blueberry Crumble Pie | From SugarHero.com

Ever since I started working for myself, national holidays haven’t been quite as exciting as they used to be. When I was a blazer-and-heels wearing office worker? You would see Memorial Day and other holidays circled on my calendar with three neon highlighters in different shades of desperation. Now that I’m a member of the…

I heard a bunch of cool kids were posting pie recipes yesterday, on March 14 (aka 3/14, aka Pi Day, aka a logical day to celebrate pie). And yeah, I guess that makes sense. Pie on Pi Day. I’ll give you that. But you know me. I’m an innovator. A free thinker. A woman not…

What a week, what a week! Not to be THAT PERSON who talks like they’re the busiest in the room—because no one likes that person—but it is fair to say that life has been a little gnarly lately. (Sidenote: Is gnarly back? Can we make it come back? Sometimes no other word will do!) After…

Jason’s birthday was last week, so I did what I do every year: made him his traditional birthday pecan pie. Yes, my weirdo of a husband is sort of neutral on birthday cake, but loooooves birthday pie. And not just any pie. It has to be my patented, world-famous, award-winning deep-dish pecan pie. [Okay fine,…

Operation Aaaahhhh Get These Pears Out Of My House! continues. (The name is a work in progress.) My first assault against the giant box of pears involved Pear Cupcakes with Honey Buttercream, and while it was a moderate success, many, many pears remained. Today’s solution? A pear pistachio tart. When you look at the list…
