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…

Hazelnut Orange Chocolate Scones

When I first started thinking about desserts for our Mother’s Day tea party, I knew scones had to be on the menu. Jason and I have done a lot of tea partyin’ in our day—you know, for research purposes—and almost every afternoon tea we’ve attended involves some sort of scone situation. [“The Scone Situation”—good band name, or…

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…

Easter Cake Push Pops

First of all, thank you all so much for the kind words when I indulged in some navel-gazing in my last post. It was really reassuring to hear that everyone wrestles with the same questions about writing for others versus writing for yourself, and it sounds like we’ve all come to similar conclusions. (Besides, who even wants…

Caramelized White Chocolate Truffles

caramelized-white-chocolate-truffles-4

This is a game changer. In the past, I’ve always tolerated white chocolate as “that other chocolate which is not nearly as good as the dark stuff, but which pairs nicely with raspberries and can be used to make mousses when you want other flavors to shine, and which is legitimately delicious in macadamia nut cookies.” Okay,…
