Lemon Blackberry Trifle

If all goes well, this will be the last dessert I truly eat for…awhile. Like a month. Or maybe more. (Pause for dramatic effect.) Don’t get me wrong. I’m still going to keep making and posting new dessert recipes on SugarHero, and I’m still going to taste-test them all to make sure that I love…

Watermelon-Raspberry Juice

Our Arrested Development recipe countdown is almost over, but there’s one very important recipe that still needs to be shared.  I’m talking, of course, about the ultimate party beverage:  J-U-I-C-E. “We have unlimited juice? This party is gonna be off the hook!” –Buster Yes, everyone’s favorite shoulder-massaging, Hey Brother-greeting, mother-adoring scholar is obsessed with juice,…

Brownie Raspberry Swirl Ice Cream Sandwiches

Arrested Development Anticipation week continues, aka that week where 10th Kitchen and I post recipes and obscure in-jokes about a tv show that went off the air 7 years ago. As a blogging strategy to not alienate any readers, it’s pure genius! So far, we’ve had an Elderflower Collins (with a side of toast), Bluth’s…

Very Hungry Caterpillar Cake

As regular readers of my blog might know, I have a young son named Asher. I don’t write about him all that much because I don’t want to turn my dessert blog into a mommy blog—okay, actually, sometimes I totally do. But I spent so long making fun of mommy blogs in my young, carefree,…

Nutella Croissant Casserole

You may think you know casseroles. “Sure, sure,” you say. “A little cream of mushroom soup here, a big handful of cheddar cheese there, and, um, aren’t canned green beans supposed to be involved somehow?” No. Well, yes. But also, NO, because: gross. This casserole, my casserole? That I’m sharing today? It contains zero cheese,…

Fruit Pizza

Last week I was talking to Jason about upcoming desserts for the blog, and I mentioned I wanted to do a fruit pizza for Easter. He furrowed his brow and cocked his head to the side like a curious chihuahua. “Fruit…pizza? Is that exactly what it sounds like?” I couldn’t believe it. We’ve been married…

Raspberry-Tangerine Petit Fours For Easter

I’ve always thought of Easter as a “fancy” holiday. Maybe it’s all the frilly little Easter dresses and matching bonnets I’m seeing in stores—when else do girls these days have a chance to wear a nice bonnet anymore? It’s all skinny jeans and belly shirts and ipods and cell phones and man, am I old….

Raspberry-Rose Cake Recipe

As a southern Californian, I don’t know that I can talk about the arrival of spring with a straight face. While it’s not true that we “don’t have seasons,” as so many transplants are fond of complaining (usually spoken while wearing flip-flops in January and waving around an iced coffee), our seasonal changes are not…
