Marbled Easter Egg Truffles

marbled-easter-egg-truffles-11

Happy Monday! …Just kidding, there’s no such thing as a happy Monday, but wishing everyone a “Middling Monday” just didn’t have the same ring to it. At my house we’re still recovering from a crazy weekend  that included my son’s birthday party (yay) and yet another ear infection (boo). I have some fun Easter desserts in…

Caramelized White Chocolate Truffles

This is a game changer. In the past, I’ve always tolerated white chocolate as “that other chocolate which is not nearly as good as the dark stuff, but which pairs nicely with raspberries and can be used to make mousses when you want other flavors to shine, and which is legitimately delicious in macadamia nut cookies.” Okay,…

Raspberry White Hot Chocolate

So long, January, and don’t let the door hit you on the way out! I’m thrilled to bid farewell to this dreary month with a pretty pink drink. Raspberry White Hot Chocolate marks the end of Hot Chocolate Week—where “week” is loosely defined as “that period of time that shall not conform to a calendar…

Hazelnut White Hot Chocolate

Brace yourselves, bunnies, and get your rotten tomatoes ready. Things are about to get whiny. See, it has been cold in Los Angeles this past week. Seriously. The city is freaking out. And yes, I can hear you rolling your eyes from here, and yes, I am dodging those tomatoes you are so unkindly pitching…

Mixed-Up S’mores

Not to be an obnoxious girl stereotype or anything, but I was never a big math fan in school. I majored in English and American Studies, aka Touchy-Feely Theories and the Book Nerds Who Love Them. It was useless, but glorious. Fast-forward a few years, and I now spend my days making desserts, my nights…

Cinnamon Bun White Hot Chocolate

I think I dreamed this cinnamon bun hot chocolate. I woke up one morning with the idea fully formed in my head. Was it divine inspiration? Crazy pregnancy cravings? My crafty husband whispering delicious things in my sleeping ear to plant them in my subconscious?* *For the curious among you, Jason actually does talk in…

Last-Minute Berry Trifle

Happy Fourth of July! I went for a run this morning in the mountains near my house and spent the time thinking about how blessed I feel to live in such a beautiful land. Even when the trail is full of annoying mountain bikers. Even when I kept slipping off the rocks and getting soaked…

TWD Rewind: Quintuple Chocolate Brownies

Presenting this week’s TWD recipe, Floating Islands: Okay, just kidding. I skipped the floating islands, because I am all alone in the house this week and wanted to make a dessert I could easily share with other people. For some reason the idea of transporting creme anglaise, poached meringues, and decorative spun sugar strands into…
