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…

Arrested Development Party Menu

Good news, friends. We are but a few days away from the Arrested Development premiere, which means that you are either a) out of your mind excited because you’re a fan of the show or b) out of your mind excited because you’re not a fan and you can’t wait for me to shut up…

Watermelon-Raspberry Juice

Our Arrested Development recipe countdown is almost over, but there’s one very important recipe that still needs to be shared.  I’m talking, of course, about the ultimate party beverage:  J-U-I-C-E. “We have unlimited juice? This party is gonna be off the hook!” –Buster Yes, everyone’s favorite shoulder-massaging, Hey Brother-greeting, mother-adoring scholar is obsessed with juice,…

Brownie Raspberry Swirl Ice Cream Sandwiches

Arrested Development Anticipation week continues, aka that week where 10th Kitchen and I post recipes and obscure in-jokes about a tv show that went off the air 7 years ago. As a blogging strategy to not alienate any readers, it’s pure genius! So far, we’ve had an Elderflower Collins (with a side of toast), Bluth’s…

Chocolate-Dipped Frozen Bananas

Big news. BIG NEWS!! Sorry to shout, but I’m way too excited to be bothered by social niceties like moderating my Internet tone of voice. (Tone of type?) Do you know what’s happening one week from today? I’ll give you a hint: it starts with an “A,” ends with an “rrested Development,” and is only…

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….

Chocolate-Covered Pretzel Milkshakes

Maybe I’ve been wrong this whole time. Maybe I’ve been barking up the wrong tree with this food writing thing. Maybe I’m wasting my time taking food photos. Maybe my life’s purpose, my main mission, my raison d’être, is just to shove random things in a blender with ice cream. I mean, it worked with…

Very Hungry Caterpillar Party Ideas

This post is a little different that my typical recipe-palooza. But when I was looking for inspiration during the birthday party planning process, I appreciated all of the other blogs that shared their ideas and resources, so I’m doing the same in the hopes it will help someone else. If you’re in the market for…
