Chocolate Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches

So, I was talking to my friend Corey the other day, and we agreed that this whole ‘Single Awareness Day’ thing is sad. Yeah, not having a significant other can suck at times, but we just don’t think that’s the way you should look at it. We think Valentine’s Day should be a celebration of love. Love for everyone in your life—girlfriends, boyfriends, friends, family,

Guiltless Banana Ice Cream

One Ingredient Banana Ice Cream @dessertfortwo

Let’s get real for a sec. Ever since January, I’ve been eating dessert every single day. I had the best excuse in the world—I was writing my cookbook and developing all the miniature desserts for you! But, um, it’s not a lifestyle. It’s a habit. True life: I’ve been sugar detoxing. Oh my god. Have you ever done this? I’ve been plagued with bitchiness, headaches,

Cucumber Raspberry Pops

Cucumber Spa Pops @dessertfortwo

Let’s pretend you and I are at the spa, and they just handed us icy cold cucumber pops studded with fresh raspberries.  Well, if you and I are friends enough to go to a spa together, you probably would assume that I snuck vodka in my purse to dunk these popsicles in.  When you eagerly reach for the vodka without a hint of judgement in your eyes,

Graham Cracker Ice Cream

Graham Cracker Ice Cream! @dessertfortwo

I don’t think I’ve had a dessert that wasn’t frozen in ages.  Wait, that’s not true.  I inhaled most things in the Tartine window.  But I don’t think I’ve made a non-frozen dessert in my own kitchen in quite a long time.  Glass jars of local heavy cream just keep making their way into my fridge.  I repeatedly make plans to bake a hot berry cobbler,

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

Peach Wine Slushies

So, if you follow me on instagram (which you totally should because I share an inappropriate amount of photos of myself taking photos.  It’s ironic, no?  A tiny bit adorable?  Ok, NO.), you’ll know that I take Happy Hour very seriously.  I even capitalize the phrase ‘Happy Hour.’ There’s a set routine on Friday nights ’round these parts.  My friends and neighbors put their little ones

Vodka Tonic Slush

Vodka tonic granita with lemon @dessertfortwo

I have a Costco membership for, like, 3 things: giant bottles of Tito’s vodka, family-sized packs of goat cheese that last me (and me alone) about a week, and perfect French baguettes.  I am loyal to their baguettes, though they may be a bit fatter than true French baguettes, because the ingredient list reads water, flour, salt, and yeast.  Nothing else.  Amen.  If I was

Watermelon + Raspberry Sorbet Sandwiches

Raspberry sorbet watermelon sandwiches @dessertfortwo

That Rachael Ray chick, man, she did it again.  In her summer issue, she had a recipe for stirring fresh basil into lemon sorbet, and then smushing it between honeydew slices.  I saw it while on a plane, and became immediately aware of the parched air in the cabin.  Suddenly, all I could think about was eating juicy, ice cold melon, which was particularly torturous
