Grapefruit Tarts

I am such a sucker for a good deal. While shopping recently, I noticed that the store was selling 6 grapefruit for $1. Instantly my grapefruit alert levels skyrocketed from Complete Apathy to I Need Six Grapefruit IMMEDIATELY. I tossed them in my cart with Michael Jordan aplomb and gave myself giant pats on the…

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…

Lemon Blackberry Trifle

If all goes well, this will be the last dessert I truly eat for…awhile. Like a month. Or maybe more. (Pause for dramatic effect.) Don’t get me wrong. I’m still going to keep making and posting new dessert recipes on SugarHero, and I’m still going to taste-test them all to make sure that I love…

Raspberry-Rose Cake Recipe

As a southern Californian, I don’t know that I can talk about the arrival of spring with a straight face. While it’s not true that we “don’t have seasons,” as so many transplants are fond of complaining (usually spoken while wearing flip-flops in January and waving around an iced coffee), our seasonal changes are not…

Pistachio Cake with Blackberry Sauce

So, St. Patrick’s Day happened, huh? I didn’t get a chance to mark the occasion on the blog because I was busy celebrating glorious, glorious pie. I have no regrets, but lest you think I’m some heathen who walked around shunning green and stomping on rainbows and punching leprechauns, rest assured that we did fete…

Chocolate-Hazelnut Mousse Trifle

After the sock monkey cake I made last week, I had mucho chocolate cake left over in the form of cake tops and excess batter. I follow the “better safe than safe-ish” rule of cake making, so if a recipe calls for 3 pounds of batter, you can bet I’ll make 4 pounds or more,…

Doughnut Strawberry Shortcakes

With the Fourth of July coming up, it’s all “red berries this” and “blue berries that” up in my Google reader. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good berry trifle or berry pie as much as the next kid, but this Independence Day I want to do something a little different with my berries….

Tuesdays With Dorie: French Strawberry Cake

I’ve fallen off the Tuesdays with Dorie wagon lately. (Not to throw my beloved new baby under the bus, buuuut…it’s pretty much entirely his fault. He may be cute, but self-sufficient and conducive to work he is not.)  A little break is necessary sometimes, but I don’t quite feel like myself when I’m not baking…
