Lemon Blackberry Trifle

If all goes well, this will be the last dessert I truly eat for…awhile. Like a month. Or maybe more. (Pause for dramatic effect.) Don’t get me wrong. I’m still going to keep making and posting new dessert recipes on SugarHero, and I’m still going to taste-test them all to make sure that I love…

Fruit Pizza

Last week I was talking to Jason about upcoming desserts for the blog, and I mentioned I wanted to do a fruit pizza for Easter. He furrowed his brow and cocked his head to the side like a curious chihuahua. “Fruit…pizza? Is that exactly what it sounds like?” I couldn’t believe it. We’ve been married…

Raspberry-Tangerine Petit Fours For Easter

I’ve always thought of Easter as a “fancy” holiday. Maybe it’s all the frilly little Easter dresses and matching bonnets I’m seeing in stores—when else do girls these days have a chance to wear a nice bonnet anymore? It’s all skinny jeans and belly shirts and ipods and cell phones and man, am I old….

Grapefruit Meringue Pie

Tomorrow is March 14, aka 3-14, aka Pi Day—the one day a year when math nerds and food nerds unite. I don’t have particularly strong feelings about pi the number, but I definitely have strong feelings about pie the food. (And those feelings are generally expressed in the form of: “Get in mah pie-hole!”)  

Chocolate-Dipped Pound Cake

Remember how I went on and on (and on) about tempering chocolate a few days ago? I hope that put you in a chocolate-dipped mood, because have I got something good for you. Please meet my new favorite treat, Chocolate-Dipped Pound Cake. Is it a cake? Is it a candy? It’s kind of both, and…

Lemon-Ginger Ice Cream Tarts

These lemon-ginger ice cream tarts may look a little fancy (or maybe they don’t—what do I know?) but they have a humble origin. Growing up, my mom used to make a super-easy dessert during the summer. It was basically softened vanilla ice cream mixed with lemonade concentrate, poured into a 9×13 pyrex dish and topped…

Lemon Poppy Seed Scones

It’s a sad fact of my life that I love breakfast foods, but rarely have the chance to make and enjoy them in the mornings. These days I’m lucky if I have the time to slice a few berries for my cereal bowl before you-know-who wants breakfast of his own. Actually taking the time to…

Raspberry Kumquat Sugar Cookie Cake

This cake owes its existence to the fact that I’m completely superficial. When I was planning out the Flourless Chocolate Cake I posted a few days ago, I decided I wanted to add some orange flavor to the chocolate, and I had to have some sort of citrus accompaniment to tie everything together. What can…
