Chocolate Soup With Croissant Croutons

Chocolate Soup | From SugarHero.com

So if you’re anything like me—and I know that you are, that’s why we’re such good friends—you’re basically always craving chocolate, but you’re also always trying to trick other people into thinking you’re healthy. “Oh, I couldn’t possibly have a cookie right now,” you say, lying through your teeth, “I just taught three spin classes…

Red Hot Love Cookies

Red Hot Love Cookies | From SugarHero.com

Hello, lovers. I know it has been a little tame around these parts. A little lovey-dovey. A little girly. A little too sweet, if you know what I mean. Today’s recipe is intended to counteract all that sickly sweetness with a giant punch of flavor, right in the kisser. If you’re the type who likes…

Chocolate Chai Pots de Creme

Sometimes, as a dinner host or hostess, you just want to kick back, relax, serve an easy make-ahead dessert that looks a lot harder than it is, and make your guest uncomfortable when they’re not sure how to pronounce the dessert’s name. Ya feel me? I mean, is that so unusual? Okay, maybe other people…

Banana Meringue Cake with Cinnamon-Sour Cream Ganache

Banana Meringue Cake | From SugarHero.com

Riddle me this: why do bananas only have a 2-hour window in which they are the perfect texture? I buy them slightly green, and they stay slightly green for days and days. If I try to eat them early, they’re hard and astringent and barely sweet. Then all of a sudden every single banana in…

Thank you to Yahoo Food for sponsoring this post and giveaway! It’s time to give churros a makeover. Obviously, as a fried dough enthusiast, I’m fond of them. They’re comforting and familiar and taste like my childhood—warm summer days spent at amusement parks, eating churros between bites of cotton candy and caramel apples. (I was…

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…

Soft Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies

Put down the cookbooks! I have found the perfect Christmas cookie. Bold words, I know. But hear me out. First of all, they’re cute. Some might even say “cute as a button.” Second, they’re packed with holiday flavors like cinnamon, ginger, molasses, chocolate […what? chocolate is an every-time flavor!], and orange zest. Third, one batch…

Cinnamon Crunch Ice Cream

If I had to pick my favorite ice cream flavor, it would be a hard choice between Mint Chip and Cinnamon. Which, admittedly, doesn’t seem like a fair fight. Mint Chip is the heavyweight, appearing absolutely everywhere, while underdog Cinnamon is criminally ignored as an ice cream flavor. I first tasted cinnamon ice cream as…
