Happy Anna Howard Shaw Day to you! And to you! And to us all! And Happy Valentine’s Day to those of you who didn’t get my semi-obscure TV show reference, or who hate women’s suffrage. Yes, even suffrage haters deserve love today. Anyhow. It’s Valentine’s Day. And I have cake, and roses, and lots of…

Chocolate Rasperry Mini Crepe Cakes

Chocolate Raspberry Mini Crepe Cakes | From SugarHero.com

I don’t go for many Valentine’s Day traditions. I have no love for diamonds or gold jewelry, I’m not a big fan of red roses, and I need more boxes of chocolate like I need a hole in the head. You know that clichéd sitcom situation when someone opens a closet and a giant pile…

Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cakes

Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cake | From SugarHero.com

Hello, gorgeous. You are looking especially beautiful this morning. Is that a different haircut? A new outfit? And what is that ravishing smell? *sniiiiiiff* Sorry if I got a bit fresh right now, it’s just that looooove is in the air and I’m in a Valentine’s Day state of mind! Hard as it is to…

You guys. It has been so long since I’ve made a chocolate dessert. And by “so long” I mean almost 3 weeks. Sugar heroes cannot live on giant cakes and churros and strawberry bars alone. We need our chocolate too! Consider this Chocolate Raspberry Almond Truffle Tart my humble apology to chocolate. I’m sorry for…

Strawberry Basil Crumb Bars

Strawberry Basil Crumb Bars | SugarHero.com

I love basil, which is why I have committed to never owning another basil plant. It’s just too painful to watch them enter the house with bright hopes and green leaves, only to see them quickly wither and die under my not-so-watchful eye. I have the best of intentions, I do…but maybe potted basil +…

Blueberry Crumble Pie

Blueberry Crumble Pie | From SugarHero.com

Ever since I started working for myself, national holidays haven’t been quite as exciting as they used to be. When I was a blazer-and-heels wearing office worker? You would see Memorial Day and other holidays circled on my calendar with three neon highlighters in different shades of desperation. Now that I’m a member of the…
