Gingerbread Flan

Easy-flan-recipe

OH YES. The holidays are for eating rich, custard-y things. I feel like I say the same thing about summer (hello, old friend ice cream), but the custards of the holidays have warming spices. And without warming spices, we would surely freeze to death. Did you catch that?: If you don’t eat this gingerbread flan, [ Click to continue Reading! ]

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 [ 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! ]

Chocolate Sorbet {vegan}

Chocolate Raspberry Sorbet @dessertfortwo

People like to say that life isn’t fair. French fries have more calories than salad. Paris is all the way across the ocean. Neither of the Property Brothers will ever propose to me. But, in some cases life is totally fair. This chocolate sorbet is completely fair. It’s rich, creamy, and easy to make with [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Grilled Stone Fruit + Almond Mascarpone Dip

Grilled stone fruit with mascarpone and candied almonds @dessertfortwo

I know this is hard to believe, but I don’t always cook for two. Even harder to believe: I have friends! Real life friends. (of the non-internet variety!!). And since my real-life friends have to hear about my internet friends and pretend it’s not weird, I cook for them. Quite frequently, actually. I made this [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Apple Pie Pizza

I’m not naming any names, but someone in my house in on a juice cleanse.  And that someone’s favorite dessert is apple pie.  Their favorite food is pizza.  So, because I’m cruel, I made apple pie pizza.  It’s just that the house is starting to smell like raw kale.  I can’t deal anymore.  This apple [ Click to continue Reading! ]

You’re just here for the strawberries, I know.  I get it.  I could smell the first season’s berries at the farmer’s market a mile away.  Winter was so dang brutal this year, so we are all jumping for joy at the strawberries. Have I told y’all before that Happy Hour is a big deal in [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Chocolate Eclairs

MiniEclairs 084-4

These mini chocolate eclairs for two positively melt my heart.  I want to dunk them in my coffee in the morning, snack on them in the afternoon, and eat them for dessert after dinner.  The good news in that scenario is that this recipe only makes 6 mini two-bite eclairs.  If you share these with [ Click to continue Reading! ]

A small batch of BEIGNETS.

Beignet-recipe-7

I’m just going to say it:  this is the best recipe that has ever come out of my kitchen.  Sorry to be so demonstrative, but I’m still on a powdered sugar high.  I bought a 7-pound bag at Costco last week. I’m a beignet freak.  They make me a bit emotionally unstable, as in, I [ Click to continue Reading! ]
