Mini Baked Alaskas!

How to make Baked Alaska

I’ve been carrying around this little notebook for 5 1/2 years. In it, I write all the desserts I want to scale down for two. I’m always consulting the list and checking things off. It’s because of this little notebook that I’ve never experienced burn-out here in this space. There are always more sugary sweets out there to scale down to serve two. Life is

Cheesecake Popsicles

Easy cheesecake popsicles recipe

This is an old recipe that was begging for a photo update. While pinterest is filled with gorgeous photos of cheesecake popsicles, this little blog was cranking them out in 2011–pre-pinterest. I was also cranking out awful food photography, but that’s besides the point today. I updated the post to include my hunky husband with his buff, tattooed arms in the photos. He was so cranky about being the

Lemonade Moonshine Popsicles


I’m sooooo close to turning off all electronic devices and relaxing this entire weekend and enjoying our huge family event. If you didn’t read in my berry swirl s’mores post, we’re getting our little Camille baptized this weekend, and we have so many family members in town for the event! For two people who’ve lived away from family for so many years, these weekends are

Raspberry Limeade Ice Cream Sandwiches

Raspberry Lime Ice Cream Sandwiches @dessertfortwo

I’ve been craving a cherry limeade from Sonic for about 7 years now. No, really. I gave up soda sometime in college, and to this day, I never have it–with one exception: Barbecue. If I’m eating a chopped brisket sandwich, I’m sipping on Dr. Pepper. It’s just my Texan roots that make it so. Last time I had barbecue, I was super duper pregnant, and

No-Churn Strawberry Ice Cream (Pie)


I have a new math formula for you. No groaning–this is loads better than algebra class, I promise. The formula is for creating no-churn berry ice cream all summer long. Pencils ready? One-half pound ripe berries + 1/2 cup cream + 1/3 cup Greek yogurt = no churn berry ice cream. There are a few variables in the equation, naturally. The amount of sugar you

Hibiscus Margarita Popsicles


Why so many boozy pops? Because, my friends, if I sit on my deck with a cocktail in one hand and a baby in the other, the neighbors might judge. However, if I sit on the deck with a popsicle in one hand and a baby in my lap, no one judges. They think, ‘hey, she’s enjoying a delicious coconut popsicle’, when really, I’m enjoying

Espresso Granita + Chai Whip

Creamy coffee granita

Anyone who knows me well knows that I am a chai tea girl, through and through. I’ve always got one in my hand. It’s usually hot, yes, even in the summer, but occasionally it’s icy and sometimes even frozen. I can never grow tired of my sweet, sweet chai. I make a batch of chai concentrate weekly and keep it in the fridge. In the

Boozy Horchata Pops

Horchata recipe by Dessert for Two

My husband is one of those people that has a million good ideas in a day. He’s always coming up with a new idea for a product, business, or way of doing things differently. In my opinion, his best idea was in 2011. We were on our way to a barbecue at a friend’s house, and he was in charge of cocktails. He grabbed a
