Flourless Chocolate Cake

You may or may not be aware that Passover starts this Friday. I don’t celebrate Passover in any religious sense, but I do celebrate chocolate-covered matzoh, coconut macaroons, and flourless chocolate cake, so I have a soft spot in my heart for this holiday. Let’s talk about flourless chocolate cake for a moment. There are…

Chocolate-Raspberry Tarts

Happy Monday, friends. I currently have a to-do list three miles long, an unedited book manuscript positively glaring at me from my dining room table, and the overwhelming desire to burrow under my covers and go back to sleep for the next six hours. And did I mention I haven’t even had time to watch…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie for Pi Day

You are going to HATE me for this, but you know what’s been going through my head all day today? Imagine this little ditty, if you will, sung to the tune of Rebecca Black’s “Friday”: “It’s Pi Day, Pi Day, gotta eat pie on Pi Day, everybody’s looking forward to eating, eating. Eating pie, eating…

I am so excited to be back baking with the Tuesdays with Dorie group! We’ve started baking through a new Dorie Greenspan book—Baking with Julia. Blog groups like this are an awesome way to discover new blogs, make new friends, and try recipes I wouldn’t otherwise try…plus, any excuse to cook a bunch of delicious…

Salted Caramel Chocolate Mousse Hearts

Another mousse recipe? So soon after the last one? Isn’t that a little much? First of all: there is no such thing as too much chocolate mousse. There is only not enough. Second of all: unlike the Nutella mousse, which was more of a cheater’s mousse-ish concoction, this is real mousse. Legit mousse. Eat-it-while-wearing-a-beret mousse….

Cherry-Chocolate Heart Truffles

I think I need to start getting kickbacks from the luster dust industry. Or is it bad form to say that out loud? Let me start again. I think I need to start getting ickbacks-kay from the uster-lay ust-day industry-hay. (Call me!) Seriously, though, I have been putting this stuff on EVERYTHING lately, and I…

2-Ingredient Nutella Mousse

Hey hey, it’s World Nutella Day! …for about 2 more hours. Sorry, I’ve been too busy filling my pie-hole (mousse-hole?) with Nutella Mousse to get this post up in a timely fashion. But the good news is that you don’t need an official holiday to enjoy this dessert. All you need is Nutella, heavy cream,…

Hazelnut Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I’m a freezer nibbler. This doesn’t mean I go around compulsively gnawing on the corners of refrigerators and freezers (although what I do on my own time is my own business, thankyouverymuch). Rather, I’m one of those people who stash extra baked goods in the freezer and eat them later. I do this for a…
