Chocolate Orange Panna Cotta

Chocolate Orange Panna Cotta | from SugarHero.com

In the past decade, I’ve transformed from a person who doesn’t really care about Halloween at all to a woman whose closets contain an excess of decorative spiders, fake body parts, and pumpkin paraphernalia. I may or may not have an entire row of Halloween sprinkles in my cupboard, and I’m not saying I body-checked someone to get…

Apple Cider Fritters

Apple Cider Fritters | From SugarHero.com

Bless me, readers, for I have sinned. It has been only four days since my last doughnut post, and I have again deep-fried dough for this blog. Forgive me. Forgive me for making these apple cider fritters, so tender on the inside, crisp on the outside, dripping with apple cider glaze and bursting with caramelized…

Pumpkin Bread Truffles

Pumpkin Bread Truffles | From SugarHero.com

It’s October 1st! (Cue the clichéd “oh where does the time go” monologue.) I am officially putting away the pastel food coloring and ice cream maker, and busting open the industrial-sized can of pumpkin puree. Since pumpkins are the undeniable star of October food and decor, it seemed only appropriate to start my love letter to fall…

Doughnut Cake With Mocha Whipped Cream

Doughnut Cake with Mocha Whipped Cream | From SugarHero.com

You’ve probably had doughnuts and coffee before, but I’ll bet you’ve never had them quite like this!

Spumoni Cake

Spumoni Cake | From SugarHero.com

You could not have PAID me enough money to eat spumoni ice cream as a child. Okay, that’s probably a lie. I was perpetually broke and hustlin’ like only a third grader who reeeaaally wants a new Dr. Pepper Lip Smackers can hustle. I most definitely would have eaten spumoni ice cream for money. But…

Charlotte Royale (Swiss Roll Cake) | From SugarHero.com

Thank you to McCormick for sponsoring this post! Gather round, children, gather round. Allow me to rest in my creaky rocking chair, take up my knitting, and tell you a story about young Elizabeth’s magical 21st birthday.  

Hazelnut Meringue Cake

Hazelnut Meringue Cake | From SugarHero.com

Let us now take a moment of silence to honor the 30+ egg whites who gave their lives in service of making the perfect hazelnut meringue. Rest in peace, good buddies. Lest you gasp and clutch your grocery budget in horror, this recipe doesn’t require anywhere near 30 egg whites. It does, apparently, require one…

Brownie Bread Pudding

Brownie Bread Pudding | From SugarHero.com

There are two kinds of people in the world: the kind of people who aren’t sure if they have extra cookies or brownies just lying around their house, all shrugged shoulders and devil-may-care about it, and the kind of people who know with pinpoint accuracy the location of every item of sugary value within a…
