Neapolitan Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

Neapolitan Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake | From SugarHero.com

I receive a lot of press releases in my inbox. They usually start with a chipper greeting and an assurance that  “I know your readers will love this!” before seguing into a pitch about gluten-free dog biscuits, or fat-burning pumpkins from Peru, or my personal favorite, a man who invented a new form of psychological…

Cranberry Orange Trifle

Thank you to Whole Foods Market and Kitchen PLAY for sponsoring this post. It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of trifles. They have all of the benefits of a layer cake—Big portions! Robust cake-to-frosting ratio! Gorgeous presentation!—without most of the actual work of assembling and frosting a layer cake. They’re the lazy cook’s…

Arrested Development Anticipation week continues, aka that week where 10th Kitchen and I post recipes and obscure in-jokes about a tv show that went off the air 7 years ago. As a blogging strategy to not alienate any readers, it’s pure genius! So far, we’ve had an Elderflower Collins (with a side of toast), Bluth’s…

Pumpkin Praline Bread Pudding

I know pumpkin pie is all the rage this time of year, but I just can’t hang with it. It’s too…moist. It gives me the heebie-jeebies. It’s coat-your-throat, mush-around-your mouth, make-it-hard-to-swallow goop. The flavor is a yes, but the texture is a big fat no. This opinion makes me a bit of an outlier at…

Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie

I know what you’re thinking, and I will save you the trouble and ask the question myself: who in their right mind posts a pumpkin recipe in May? MAY! Let me answer that by pointing to the giant knot on my head where a giant Tupperware of frozen pumpkin puree came flying out of my…

Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta

Things have been feeling verrry fancy around here lately. First there was semifreddo, then rugelach, and now panna cotta. What’s next, a $34,000 chocolate pudding? Lest you think I’m getting too big for my britches, let me reassure you that I’m still the same pajama-wearing bum I’ve always been. In fact, I just ate a…

TWD: Sour Cream Chocolate Cake Cookies Go Whoopie

whoopie-pies-4

Before we get into any fights and things get awkward around here, let me preface this by saying: there is nothing wrong with a cake cookie per se. Sometimes you might be craving a fluffy, soft dessert, and instead of hassling with cupcake pans and liners, you go with a cakey cookie instead. I get…
