Marzipan Swirl Tart

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…

Chocolate Cookie Ice Cream Cups

You guys, I just had the best week EVER. Jason took Asher on a trip to visit the grandparents for a week, leaving me home alone. I repeat: HOME. ALONE. Picture me doing the patented Macaulay Culkin hands-to-cheeks pose, but instead of screaming in fear, I’m shrieking with delight.

Pear Cupcakes with Honey Buttercream

Buckle up, cupcakes, there is major cuteness ahoy. What, like you’ve never made a recipe just so you could top it with an adorable miniature candy fruit? Actually, these pear cupcakes served a dual purpose: I got to indulge my love of whimsy and painfully literal cupcake decorating, and also got to address what is…

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…

Carrot Cake with Coconut Cream Cheese Buttercream

Sometimes, when working on a blog post, I want to skip the writing entirely. No cute stories, no poetic descriptions, no embarrassing confessions about late-night munching. Just a few in-your-face pictures, and a recipe. Because some recipes, and some pictures, need no other accessories. BAM.

Lavender Rose Ice Cream

With this recipe, my transition into Official Old Lady is complete. The truth is, I’ve had old lady tendencies my whole life.  One of my favorite hobbies is talking scornfully about kids these days, and I’ve been yelling at (proverbial) punks to get off my (proverbial) lawn for at least the last decade. I’m basically…

Deep Fried S’mores

Gather round, everyone, and let’s bring it in for a big group hug. This recipe marks the temporary end of a sweet little tradition around here called Fry-Day.* For the past month-plus, I’ve shared a deep-fried dessert recipe every Friday. It’s been an absolute blast, and I may never look at a root beer float…

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…
