Rosé Lemonade

Lemonade rose recipe

Two people cannot finish an entire bottle of wine. Wait, can I re-phrase that? Two people shouldn’t finish an entire bottle of wine. At least not on a weeknight. We speak from experience. Since it’s summertime, we’ve been hitting the rosé almost nightly. But, I’ve been waking up lately only to find that I forgot to re-cork the wine. Again. Whenever I have a leftover

Fruity Coconut Water Slushes

I hope you guys are having a fabulous 3-day weekend. Truth be told, it’s like any other weekend for us. Life with a newborn is different, as you know. I’m making homemade pizza for dinner…kind of the exact opposite of grilling outdoors, but these days, I’m just proud of anything homemade that I can manage to produce. My parents are coming into town tomorrow to meet

Pineapple Hibiscus Mocktail

Is it just me, or are mocktails having a moment right now? I’m so glad Deb brought it up last week, because I’ve been noticing mocktail menus more and more at restaurants these days. I had a fantastic one at a fancy place a few weeks ago that I would re-order even if I didn’t have a human growing inside of me. The truth of the matter is, once

Two mugs o’ eggnog

Egg nog for two

You might assume that my brain instantly scales down everything to serve two. Not so. There are certain things I would never scale down. Like: chicken soup, chai flavored anything (except these pumpkin cupcakes), and most cocktail recipes. What am I going to do with an entire pitcher of margaritas? Wait, I know the answer! Moving on… So, when my sweet, lovely, beautiful and talented blog

Gingerbread Latte

Gingerbread latte recipe by Dessert For Two.

I’m committed to making lattes at home. It’s not just because I think Starbucks employees shouldn’t have to see me first thing in the morning, or that I shouldn’t be trusted to drive that early. Or, even that I’m going to bring my crazy, barking dog in the car with me. While all of these things are true, I make lattes at home because I’m lazy.

Pumpkin Spice Lattes {+mocha version!}

DIY Pumpkin Spice Lattes @dessertfortwo

Hey St. Louis friends—tune into Fox2news Friday morning at 8:40 to watch me make this live! I can’t promise the milk won’t go flying when I turn on the blender, but I can promise the chance to watch a woman burn herself on live tv! I’m taking issue with myself for how early I started drinking pumpkin spice lattes this year. It’s never been as

Tea Infused Blueberries {so many uses!}

Blueberries soaking in tea @dessertfortwo

If you don’t have at least a few friends with unusual dietary restrictions, I say you need more friends.  Every time I have people over for a meal, I take a running tally of their food preferences and intolerances.  I think it’s fun!  I love cooking for people with food allergies.  I love showing them that they can eat delicious food, with only small modifications. 

Earl Grey Latte Pops

Creamy Earl Grey Tea Popsicles @dessertfortwo

I’m not entirely sure that this recipe didn’t come to me in a dream.   I’m pretty sure I was dozing off during cookbook edits, and had a vision of an extra adorable stripey popsicle in my hand. (because if you’re going to dream about food, it better be the cutest kind of cute!) I’m one of those weirdos that must have something hot to drink
