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…

Strawberry Rhubarb Pavlova

As you might know, I’m married to a very enthusiastic eater. It’s wonderful. He appreciates all of the desserts I slave over, but he also likes the ones that sort of flop. Making a cake that totally sinks, or cookies that spread into shapeless blobs, doesn’t feel like a complete failure when there’s someone eagerly…

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!”)  

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…

Meringue-Topped Blondies

Meringue has never done much for me. I could take or leave a lemon meringue pie, and those crunchy meringue “cookies” that come in big tubs? Get those out of here and quit insulting me. But with this blondie recipe, I think I’ve finally found a legitimate use for meringue. It turns out that when…

This is a Fine Eton Mess We’re In

Hey, remember when I made that passion fruit curd? I posted about it, like, two days ago. Here’s a refresher: Nom nom nom Well, it turns out that passion fruit curd isn’t just good for layering in tiny glasses and topping with whipped cream. It’s also good for layering in GIANT glasses and topping with…
