Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie | SugarHero.com

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…

Chocolate Tart with Candied Kumquats

chocolate-kumquat-tart-3

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 Favorite) Deep-Dish Pecan Pie

Jason’s birthday was last week, so I did what I do every year: made him his traditional birthday pecan pie.

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…

Marzipan Swirl Tart

Marzipan Swirl Tart | SugarHero.com

It’s baaaaaack! Marzipan, my little almond paste friend found in the silver tube, is back in a big way today. It wasn’t enough that I churned it into almond ice cream and mixed it with coconut and fudge sauce earlier this summer. No, I had to go and pair it with a buttery almond crust…

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…
