Helloooo, long-lost friends! Things have been a bit quiet around here lately, and I’ve missed you! I’ve had a crazy confluence of work and life stuff going on, and unfortunately it seems like it’s going to continue for the next few weeks, so SugarHero might not be updated as frequently as I’d like. But I’m…

Four Fantastic Ways to Use Ganache | From SugarHero.com

Thank you to HP for sponsoring this post. Today’s an extra-special day here at SugarHero HQ. For one thing, it’s Friday (yesssssssss!) and for another, today I get to share not one, but four (actually, FIVE!) chocolate recipes with you. Stellar, right? So let’s gorge ourselves on chocolate loveliness before collapsing slack-jawed in front of…

Thank you to JOLLY TIME Pop Corn and Kitchen PLAY for sponsoring this post! I don’t know if this aspect of my personality comes through on the blog, but I am not a “less is more” sort of girl. (I imagine regular readers might have guessed this about me, however.) It’s not uncommon for me…

Where the Wild Things Are Birthday Cake

My son Asher turned two this month. I know. I KNOW. It seems like only yesterday I was writing a blog announcement and posting pictures of him in a wee Hershey’s kisses hat. Like every parent always says, the past few years have sped by and I can’t believe I now have a toddler who runs and…

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate

So if last week’s Lavender Hot Chocolate was all about treating yo’self –well actually, myself—then this Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate is all about treating the entire freakin’ world. Because I’m pretty sure that what the world needs isn’t love, sweet love, but chocolate, sweet chocolate. And if that chocolate is mixed with a based of…

Halloween is over, but please don’t put away those sweet teeth just yet! We’re still in the midst of celebrating Dia de los Muertos (the Mexican holiday honoring those who have died), and here in Los Angeles, the party is happening all weekend. So why not take a break from eating that leftover Halloween candy…

Caramel Panna Cotta with Poached Pears

Caramel Panna Cotta with Poached Pears | SugarHero.com

This is it! The home stretch! The last pear recipe this fall, before I succumb to the pumpkin fever that’s sweeping the nation and paint my face orange in a woefully misguided attempt at fitting in! Are you ready to rumble? Previously in my not-at-all official pear series, I shared recipes for Pear Cupcakes with…

Salted Caramel Milk and A Girl’s Flight Night Party with Godiva

  Here’s something about me that probably won’t come as a surprise: I love throwing parties. (If you’re a regular reader, the post about my Very Hungry Caterpillar party this past spring might have tipped you off.) Actually, I love-slash-hate throwing parties, because I inevitably get obsessive and way too intense about it, and it’s…
