Hazelnut Meringue Cake

Hazelnut Meringue Cake | From SugarHero.com

Let us now take a moment of silence to honor the 30+ egg whites who gave their lives in service of making the perfect hazelnut meringue. Rest in peace, good buddies. Lest you gasp and clutch your grocery budget in horror, this recipe doesn’t require anywhere near 30 egg whites. It does, apparently, require one…

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…

Almond Joy Boston Cream Pie

Almond Joy Boston Cream Pie | SugarHero.com

I hate to waste food. HATE it. I will literally eat leftovers that are on the verge of spoiling, even things that I didn’t like very much in the first place, rather than throw them out. (Of course, my ideal solution to that problem is to make Jason eat them instead, but sometimes he outsmarts…

Skull Cake for Dia de los Muertos

Halloween is over, but please don’t put away those sweet teeth just yet! We’re still in the midst of celebrating Dia de los Muertos (the Mexican holiday honoring those who have died), and here in Los Angeles, the party is happening all weekend. So why not take a break from eating that leftover Halloween candy…

Spiderweb Cupcakes and Chocolate Spiders

Halloween is next week, eeeeee! I wasn’t always the biggest Halloween enthusiast (although I always did like the candy…) but since becoming a parent, I’ve gotten into it in a weird way. I think it’s because I now have a small person I can force into whatever cheesy costume I can dream up. Last year…

Marzipan Swirl Tart

It’s baaaaaack! Marzipan, my little almond paste friend found in the silver tube, is back in a big way today. It wasn’t enough that I churned it into almond ice cream and mixed it with coconut and fudge sauce earlier this summer. No, I had to go and pair it with a buttery almond crust…

Raspberry Mousse Chocolate Cups

Bow ties? Check. Cummerbunds? Check. Spats, top hats, and tails? Check, check, and check! Now that we’re wearing our fanciest of fancy outfits, we can get down to the business of making fancy raspberry mousse chocolate cups. These mousse cups may or may not be Valentine’s Day desserts that never got blogged in time (okay,…

Moon Pie Pie

Say hello to Moon Pie Pie. No, that’s not a typo, and no, I didn’t keyboard-stutter. Moon Pie Pie is the name of the new dessert I came up with last week, a crazy cookie-candy-pie hybrid. See, it’s a pie…with all the ingredients of classic moon pies. Ya dig?  Silly name, serious taste. Get on…
