Four Fantastic Ways to Use Ganache | From SugarHero.com

Thank you to HP for sponsoring this post. Today’s an extra-special day here at SugarHero HQ. For one thing, it’s Friday (yesssssssss!) and for another, today I get to share not one, but four (actually, FIVE!) chocolate recipes with you. Stellar, right? So let’s gorge ourselves on chocolate loveliness before collapsing slack-jawed in front of…

Chocolate Rasperry Mini Crepe Cakes

Chocolate Raspberry Mini Crepe Cakes | From SugarHero.com

I don’t go for many Valentine’s Day traditions. I have no love for diamonds or gold jewelry, I’m not a big fan of red roses, and I need more boxes of chocolate like I need a hole in the head. You know that clichéd sitcom situation when someone opens a closet and a giant pile…

Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cakes

Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cake | From SugarHero.com

Hello, gorgeous. You are looking especially beautiful this morning. Is that a different haircut? A new outfit? And what is that ravishing smell? *sniiiiiiff* Sorry if I got a bit fresh right now, it’s just that looooove is in the air and I’m in a Valentine’s Day state of mind! Hard as it is to…

Chocolate Truffle Peppermint Crunch Cookies

I’ve heard a rumor that it’s cookie season. I’ve also heard that it’s peppermint season, and gift-giving season, and “calories, shmalories” season. Huzzah! I made these Chocolate Truffle Peppermint Crunch Cookies as part of the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. It’s a fun blogging event organized by Lindsay and Julie, and the concept is simple:…

Hazelnut Meringue Cake

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…

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…
