This coming Sunday is Father’s Day, to which I say, psssh. In my house we’re celebrating Father’s Week. If you’re not familiar with this made-up custom, Father’s Week is a magical week when Jason gets a new gift every single day leading up to Father’s Day. This sounds super fancy and over-the-top, until I tell…

Apologies in advance, but I have a few non-sugary things to talk about today before we get to the good stuff. I promise to make it up to you, though, because the good stuff is gooooood. Taunting preview right here: So, first order of business: getting SugarHero posts in front of your eyeballs in the…

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…

Big news. BIG NEWS!! Sorry to shout, but I’m way too excited to be bothered by social niceties like moderating my Internet tone of voice. (Tone of type?) Do you know what’s happening one week from today? I’ll give you a hint: it starts with an “A,” ends with an “rrested Development,” and is only…

Cinnamon Mousse Tarts

True confession time: these were supposed to be a Cinco de Mayo dessert. The shells are made with Mexican chocolate, the mousse filling is flavored with lots of cinnamon…it was all going to be so perfectly appropriate and on-theme. But, you know, baking and photographing food is only one part of this whole blogging dealio….

Chocolate-Covered Pretzel Milkshakes

Maybe I’ve been wrong this whole time. Maybe I’ve been barking up the wrong tree with this food writing thing. Maybe I’m wasting my time taking food photos. Maybe my life’s purpose, my main mission, my raison d’être, is just to shove random things in a blender with ice cream. I mean, it worked with…

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,…

On Cinco de Mayo, if all goes well, I’ll be sleeping. Fingers crossed.   This past week has been really packed and tiring. Then…
