Ice Cream Sundae Cake

Ice Cream Sundae Cake | From SugarHero.com

Quick! Name the summeriest thing you can think of. Sand-crusted weekends at the beach? Long, sticky days at the pool working on your skin cancer tan? Frosty drinks beneath a palm tree? Hearing that horrible Iggy Azalea song one too many times and throwing your radio across the room in disgust? All good answers, but…

Chocolate Profiteroles with Fresh Mint Chip Ice Cream

Chocolate Profiteroles with Fresh Mint Ice Cream | From SugarHero.com

I was shopping in my favorite Armenian market a few weeks ago, and I noticed they were having a monster sale on fresh mint. Four big bunches for 99 cents! Beat that, Whole-Foods-That-Sells-A-Tiny-Sprig-For-$3! So of course I snatched up four bunches and then Insta-bragged about the great deal. I was feeling pretty smug with my…

German Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream + A Chocolate Giveaway!

German Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream

As I type this, there is a tell-tale smudge of chocolate above my lip, and a plastic container that’s been licked clean near my left hand. There’s an empty space in my freezer, a faint whiff of chocolate on my breath, and the smallest, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it pang of guilt as I think of my sleeping husband,…

Helloooo, long-lost chums! I just got back from a week in New York City. It was 75% work, 25% play, and 100% humidity fun. (Seriously, though, can we talk about the humidity? I had unsightly sweat stains and Sideshow Bob hair the entire time. NYC, you are not messing around, and for those of you…

Goat Cheese Brownies

Father’s Day is coming. That probably means you should be stocking up on beef, and beer, and brats, and everything else men in sitcoms and Super Bowl commercials appear to love. Me, I’ll just be over here shoving goat cheese into brownies and calling it a day. See, my man doesn’t like beer. He doesn’t…

Raspberry Almond Spiral Cake

Thank you to Naturipe for sponsoring this post and the KitchenAid giveaway below! Traditional cake rolls are so last century. Now that it’s 2014, we are kicking it new school. We are no longer content to just roll our cakes—we’re spiraling them instead. Yes, despite what amusement park kiosks might have told you, Dippin’ Dots…

Neapolitan Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

Neapolitan Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake | From SugarHero.com

I receive a lot of press releases in my inbox. They usually start with a chipper greeting and an assurance that  “I know your readers will love this!” before seguing into a pitch about gluten-free dog biscuits, or fat-burning pumpkins from Peru, or my personal favorite, a man who invented a new form of psychological…
