Banana Bread Tiramisu

Banana Bread Tiramisu | From SugarHero.com

I love banana bread. I love tiramisu. I love making recipes with a bajillion components (although I kind of hating writing out those long recipes…sigh). I really love putting on my fancy pants and going to town with frou-frou decorations. So obviously, these banana bread tiramisus in edible chocolate wrappers are basically my own culinary…

Banana Coconut Macadamia Nut Bread

Whew, you guys dodged a bullet there! I have bad sleeping habits (ie, I don’t) and I generally end up writing these posts late at night, way past my bedtime. Last night I wrote a long, somewhat melodramatic post that was brought on by a sad blog I’d found and my overtired brain. It started…

Mini Banana Split Cakes – And A Giveaway!

Can we all agree that it’s summer already? I don’t care what the calendar says. Summer solstice, shummer shmolshtice. Graduations are happening, temps are rising, and there’s been a suspicious number of popsicles consumed at my house already. (Also a lot of boring blog entries that talk about hot weather. Sorry—I am seriously such a…

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…

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

So, I had a baby somewhat recently. In the first few weeks after giving birth, before I’d received approval to start exercising again, I was full of daydreams about how awesome it was going to be to get back in shape. I pictured intense, sweat-drenched workout sessions and virtuous meals chock full of fresh vegetables….

Roasted Banana Bundt Cake (and the World’s Best Frosting)

I was excited about this cake for about two hours. See, it’s a fun twist on the traditional banana bundt cake. Instead of adding banana puree to a cake batter, the banana pieces are roasted with butter and brown sugar, then the golden bruleed bananas and their syrupy juices are added to the cake. Think…

TWD: Banana-Coconut Ice Cream Pie

This week’s Banana-Coconut Ice Cream Pie was a bit of an odd duck for me. I think a large part of my problem was the name. It had me expecting lush tropical flavors, but then the chocolate ice cream kind of stole the show and overwhelmed everything else. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that…)…

The Best Idea I’ve Had All Year

Last week I was invited to a fondue party. It was all of my favorite things in one room: friends, melted chocolate, and an immense smorgasbord of bite-sized dippable goodies. What a world we live in, that communal chocolate-dipping is a socially accepted–even celebrated–ritual! For the fondue party, we were all asked to bring some…
