Pistachio Pie with Lemon Whipped Cream

Pistachio Pie | From SugarHero.com

I don’t trust my own food judgment sometimes. As you might imagine, this can be problematic for someone who makes their living working with food. The problem is, I reeeeaaaally like desserts. As in, fourth grade style, write-a-MASH-note-to-a-piece-of-cake like-like desserts. And I also enjoy less popular ingredients and flavor combinations. So when I come up with…

Ice Cream Sundae Cake

Ice Cream Sundae Cake | From SugarHero.com

Quick! Name the summeriest thing you can think of. Sand-crusted weekends at the beach? Long, sticky days at the pool working on your skin cancer tan? Frosty drinks beneath a palm tree? Hearing that horrible Iggy Azalea song one too many times and throwing your radio across the room in disgust? All good answers, but…

Banana Bread Tiramisu

Banana Bread Tiramisu | From SugarHero.com

I love banana bread. I love tiramisu. I love making recipes with a bajillion components (although I kind of hating writing out those long recipes…sigh). I really love putting on my fancy pants and going to town with frou-frou decorations. So obviously, these banana bread tiramisus in edible chocolate wrappers are basically my own culinary…

Chocolate Raspberry Almond Truffle Tart

You guys. It has been so long since I’ve made a chocolate dessert. And by “so long” I mean almost 3 weeks. Sugar heroes cannot live on giant cakes and churros and strawberry bars alone. We need our chocolate too! Consider this Chocolate Raspberry Almond Truffle Tart my humble apology to chocolate. I’m sorry for…

Raspberry Almond Spiral Cake

Thank you to Naturipe for sponsoring this post and the KitchenAid giveaway below! Traditional cake rolls are so last century. Now that it’s 2014, we are kicking it new school. We are no longer content to just roll our cakes—we’re spiraling them instead. Yes, despite what amusement park kiosks might have told you, Dippin’ Dots…

I have something a little different to share with you today! I’ve teamed up with my friend Chelsey from West Coast Capri to bring you a Mother’s Day tea party! Chelsey has a gorgeous lifestyle blog where she posts about fashion, design, beauty, and food. I have a pretty good handle on food, but I’m…

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…

Marzipan Swirl Tart

Marzipan Swirl Tart | SugarHero.com

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…
