I didn’t make this cake for my Valentine. I made it for ME. I love white chocolate and rose, so I made myself a miniature cake. It’s not that my Valentine didn’t help me eat this mini cake for two…he just prefers the Chocolate Sour Cream Cake for two that I made a few years ago. Or, the fudge-bottom mini cake. He’s kind of a
If you’re hosting a Thanksgiving feast and no one offered to bring the pie, I’m so sorry. But! I have you covered. We’re going to give everyone their pumpkin fix with this no-cook, pull-together-in-15-minutes pumpkin mousse. And for someone who is on the fence about pumpkin (sorry, it’s me), I will attest to the extreme deliciousness of this mousse. It’s airy, sweet, fluffy, and so
Welcome to the second-only recipe using a slow cooker on this site! You didn’t miss my first one, Creme Brûlée in the Slow Cooker, did you? Because that would be sad. So, I love this cranberry butter for a few reasons. One: using the slow cooker is hands-off Turkey Day. Two: it’s so dang easy, your drunk uncle could make it. Three: it has many uses!

I’m not sure when oil became the only acceptable thing with which to roast, but its

Even if the recipe is chocolate pudding–chocolate caramel pudding is just one extra step away. Butterscotch pudding–nope, caramel butterscotch pudding wins.
I know. How French of me. I’m really enjoying sharing my obsession with you. I’m also having a bit of a moment with simple French cuisine. It’s been easy lately, because simple recipes require high quality ingredients, and my CSA is churning out some serious good stuff this time of year. I love the late summer/ early fall harvest. This is my first week with
Crêpes for two! Crêpes pour deux! Who’s with me? I am a Francophile, through and through. My daughter’s name is of French origin, the only parenting books I’ve read are French, and I scarf down French food, wine, and cheese like France’s GDP depends on me alone. It’s quite annoying for all parties involved. Especially since I haven’t even been to France! I pester Erin a
The fact that I scaled down soft pretzels to serve two proves my love for the city of Philadelphia. I’ve eaten my way through that city 3 times this year so far. Yet still, there are so many things to eat left on the list! When I land in Philly, I hit the ground running. And by running, I mean run to the nearest pretzel
