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…

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,…
