Almond Coconut Fudge Ripple Ice Cream

I was channeling Ben & Jerry when I came up with this ice cream. It starts with an almond ice cream base, then has swirls of marzipan, gooey coconut, and fudge sauce, and big chunks of chocolate-covered almonds. It’s kind of a big deal. When I beheld my masterpiece, I said to myself, “Self, what…

Blueberry Toasted Coconut Tart

This summer we’ve turned into blueberry fanatics, and it’s all thanks to one 14-month old shorty. I’ve always been more of a raspberry girl, but when we took a family trip to the farmer’s market about a month ago, and let Asher sample a few blueberries from a stall, he went crazy for them. He…

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…

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bark

Any Princess Bride fans in the house? Today’s hybrid cookie bark recipe brought to mind this quote from one of the most quotable movies of all time*: Mawwiage. Mawwiage is what bwings us togeder today. Mawwiage, that bwessed awwangement, that dweam within a dweam… I’m referring, of course, to the mawwiage—excuse me, the marriage—of some…

Mounds Cookies (Coconut-Filled Chocolate Cookies)

I have a killer cookie recipe to share with you today. But first, a short diversion. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard the Carly Rae Jepsen song “Call Me Maybe” about a million more times than you’ve ever wanted to. I don’t know what sorcery goes into making a fiercely annoying…

Lime-Coconut Pie

When we last met, I was torturing you with atrocious teenybopper/internet meme song lyrics. Considering that history, and taking into account the fact that I am making a superhuman effort to avoid any “put the lime in the coconut” jokes with this pie post, I think I deserve some snaps, don’t you? Thanks very much….

Double Coconut Macaroons and Chia Gel

If I were to ask you what coconut macaroons and chia gel had in common, you might think it was a trick question. (You might actually think I was making up the concept of “chia gel” entirely, but I assure you–it’s a thing. And only tangentially related to the chia pet.) Yes, they’re both two-word…

TWD: Apple-Coconut Family Cake

On paper, this Apple-Coconut Family Cake had a lot going for it. For one thing, I like apple, and I love coconut. Love. Try to use it as often as possible. Named a whole month after it. Want to call my first child Coconut LaBau. (Actually, I want to call my first child Angela-Merkel LaBau*,…
