Lemon Creme Brûlée

Creme brûlée for two recipe

So, I definitely prepared recipes in advance for y’all while I’m on maternity leave, but I didn’t exactly write the posts in advance. Writing thoughts before I have them, or ‘canned’ writing as I call it, just comes off as spacy. ‘I love this delicious recipe, you should make it blah blah blah.’  So not my style. I would never do that to you. So, here

Chocolate Cheesecakes + Salted Caramel Sauce

Easy chocolate cheesecake with caramel sauce for two

In case you happen to be one of those people that needs to be hooked in the first line, I’mma do it for you right now: 3 INGREDIENT NO-BAKE CHOCOLATE CHEESECAKE. WITH SALTED CARAMEL SAUCE.

I just finished reading ‘French Women Don’t Get Fat.’  I know, I’m 6 years behind the times. I always read books WAY after they are popular. I just finished The Hunger Games recently, also way behind the times. Anyway, I have no idea why I read this book. I’m not looking to shed any weight. Maybe I was looking for an excuse to drink wine at

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.

Skinny Chocolate Mousse with Peppermint @dessertfortwo

Have we recovered from Thanksgiving sufficiently? I gave you an extra day yesterday just in case you were doing one of those kale-quinoa juice-fast things. I can’t talk to you when you do things like that. BUT today is grand because we’re in the depths of December (by two whole days!), and so we’re celebrating with a rich chocolate mousse!

It’s the holidays. People are expecting homemade things from you. Impress them with homemade puff pastry. Hold it right there! I see you slowly backing away from your screen when I said ‘homemade puff pastry.’ But come back! I found a method for 15-minute homemade puff pastry. Ahhh, welcome back!

And without warming spices, we would surely freeze to death. Did you catch that?: If you don’t eat this gingerbread flan, you might die. Dessert = justified. I grew up around

But you say your Friday nights aren’t looking too hot lately? I know that feeling. You need chocolate. There’s not many things that you can’t dip in chocolate to make you feel better.
