Molten Chocolate Cakes {video!}


Do you think two warm, gooey chocolate cakes are the perfect Valentine’s Day dessert for two? Me too! I’m so glad we agree. This recipe is from the archives, but I made it again and created a video to walk you through every step. The video has lots of tips on the types of chocolate to [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Two-Handed Chocolate Cake


Alternate title of post: “The only pregnancy post I’ll ever do. Promise.” So yeah, sorry for keeping it a secret. I really wanted to keep the focus on my book. My book will always feel like the first thing I gave birth to, and I wanted to give it the attention it deserves. So, questions? [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Mini Bread Puddings


I feel like the first thing we need to talk about today is that sauce. I’m going to say the name of it, but I want you to be sitting down first. Ok, are you ready? Brown sugar whiskey caramel sauce. I know. Just roll me out of here when I’m done bathing in it. [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Yeasted Coffee Cake


I partnered with Fleischmann’s® Yeast to bring you this photo series. Thanks for letting me partner with brands to keep the lights on around this place. All opinions, words and photos in this post are my own. I’ve been big on breakfasts lately. Anything warm that I can make the night before and re-heat in the morning [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Coffee Cake Muffins

Small batch of coffee cake

I’m going to need a slow clap starting now. When the oven timer goes off, you can begin. When I pull these out of the oven, start to pick up the pace. When I undress a muffin, go ahead and burst wildly into applause. These mini coffee cakes deserve it. My friend Heather requested a [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Pumpkin Tiramisu


Where has all the tiramisu gone? Did 1995 take it all? Did the Olive Garden serve the last slice left in this world? I feel like it used to be so prevalent on dessert menus, but not anymore. And I think that’s a shame. Tiramisu is one of the easiest, most impressive desserts I can pull [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Carrot Cake, naturally

Skinny Mini Carrot Cake @dessertfortwo

Because sugar free week can’t be all cold and creamy ice cream, I made us miniature carrot cake bites! They’re naturally sweetened, which, in my book, means:  no funky sugars, chemicals, or trips to the health food store required—not that I dislike going to the health food store. Actually, I love love love it. Some [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Microwave Chocolate Mug Cakes

Easy-Chocolate Mug Cakes | @dessertfortwo

I’ve been having late-night dates with chocolate lately.  Just me, my microwave, and a mug of hot chocolate cake.  When the microwave beeps, it’s almost like the doorbell–my date is here to pick me up! Judge me if you wish, but there’s no one else I’d rather hang out with on a Friday night than a [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Bananas Foster Baby Cakes


I just can’t help it, I’ve got the Big Easy on my brain.  And if the past few weeks’ baking is any sign (which, um, is totally is), y’all have a lot of purple, green, and yellow sprinkles headed your way. Mardi Gras reminds me of our honeymoon in New Orleans, and although it’s been [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Red Hot Cinnamon Apple Cake


Welcome to February!  February is for lovers, and I’m so happy it’s finally here!
