Pumpkin shmumpkin. You have months left to enjoy pumpkin desserts! Let’s forgo the gourd for a minute, change it up a little, and say goodbye to the last of the berries with this stunning Chocolate Raspberry Mousse Cake. I don’t go around calling things “food porn” on a regular basis, so instead, can we just…

Crème Fraîche Panna Cotta

This one’s going to be short and sweet, because, hey! It’s Saturday! Ain’t nobody got time for reading long meandering blog posts. There are lawns to mow and trails to hike and friends to brunch with, or maybe just couches to nap on—whatever floats your Saturday boat. No judgment here. I did want to pop…

Deep Fried Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

Sing with me, friends! “It’s Fry-Day, Fry-Day, gotta fry things on Fry-Day! Everyone’s frying for the weekend! (weekend!)” That’s right, not only do I provide delicious dessert recipes, I’m also your one-stop source for dated Rebecca Black references. You’re welcome. You’re also welcome for this: Just when you thought fresh strawberries couldn’t get any better,…

Chocolate-Covered Raspberries

Move over, chocolate-covered cherries. There’s a new chocolate-covered candy king: chocolate-covered raspberries. Think about it: why should cherries have all the fun? Because if we’re being honest, maraschino cherries are waaaay less fun than fresh raspberries. They’re painfully sweet, barely related to their fresh cherry cousins, and are comprised of approximately 68% red dye, 30%…

Deep-Fried Cheesecake

It’s Fry-Day again, so you know what that means! Time to give our arteries their weekly workout, play with scorching oil, and fry desserts that don’t really require frying. What a magical day. Today’s frying victim: Cheesecake. Cheesecake was sort of a bold choice, because we’re not big cheesecake fans at my house. Jason doesn’t…

Strawberry Rhubarb Pavlova

As you might know, I’m married to a very enthusiastic eater. It’s wonderful. He appreciates all of the desserts I slave over, but he also likes the ones that sort of flop. Making a cake that totally sinks, or cookies that spread into shapeless blobs, doesn’t feel like a complete failure when there’s someone eagerly…

Strawberry-Dusted Shortbread Stars

Are you familiar with freeze-dried fruit? I first fell in love with this genius product a few years ago, when Trader Joe’s started carrying a few varieties. (TJ’s is the source of most of my culinary obsessions, but to fall in love with a product they carry is to open yourself up to heartbreak when…

Blueberry Toasted Coconut Tart

This summer we’ve turned into blueberry fanatics, and it’s all thanks to one 14-month old shorty. I’ve always been more of a raspberry girl, but when we took a family trip to the farmer’s market about a month ago, and let Asher sample a few blueberries from a stall, he went crazy for them. He…
