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 [ Click to continue Reading! ]

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 [ Click to continue Reading! ]

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 [ Click to continue Reading! ]

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 [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Peach Wine Slushies

White White Slushy @dessertfortwo

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 [ Click to continue Reading! ]

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, [ Click to continue Reading! ]

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 [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Coconut Snow

Coconut Granita @dessertfortwo

So maybe I just poured a can of (full fat) coconut milk in a dish, froze it, and scraped it at intervals.  Maybe that’s hardly a recipe.  But maybe it’s so dang good, I don’t even care.  Definitely not maybe.  Definitely a yes. I’m vowing to always have this in the freezer all summer long.  [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Raspberry Rose Sundaes

Raspberries just scream summer to me. I love picking raspberries in the summer. I love eating raspberries in the summer. Most of all, I love eating them off my fingertips one by one. Such sweet, sweet finger food. Raspberries make the perfect summer dessert because they are gorgeous, impressive, and need very little coaxing to [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Wine Slushies

Wine Slushy recipe @dessertfortwo

Back when I first downloaded Instagram, one of the first photos I snapped was of my then-boyfriend drinking a wine slushy at the California state fair.  I had never heard of the glorious thing that is called ‘wine slushy,’ and so I stood in line over and over again to try all of the flavors.  [ Click to continue Reading! ]
