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…

Lemon Coconut Snowball Cake | From SugarHero.com

Okay, I know I wrote the word “snowball” in the title, but I promise this is not going to be yet another blog post about the weather. If you’re anything like me, you’re a little sick of reading all the breathless September: Summer or Fall?? discussion posts, and I say this as someone who is…

If you’ve ever walked into a frozen yogurt place, taken one look at the lever for peanut butter yogurt, wrinkled your nose, and thought, “WHO is the one person on the planet who is buying that peanut butter yogurt?” well…it’s me.

Pistachio Pie with Lemon Whipped Cream

Pistachio Pie | From SugarHero.com

I don’t trust my own food judgment sometimes. As you might imagine, this can be problematic for someone who makes their living working with food. The problem is, I reeeeaaaally like desserts. As in, fourth grade style, write-a-MASH-note-to-a-piece-of-cake like-like desserts. And I also enjoy less popular ingredients and flavor combinations. So when I come up with…
