Small Pot of Gumbo - DessertForTwo.com

Yes, we are still on a New Orleans soul food kick in this house.  I just can’t help it.  The food we had in New Orleans was outstanding.  I had a bowl of crawfish etouffe that knocked my socks off.  I ate it quickly in silence, and Brian turned to me and said “that’s the […]

Sweet Czech Kolaches

Welcome to the first recipe ever to contain yeast on Dessert For Two!  I used to be afraid of yeast.  And then, I read the ingredients on a loaf of store-bought bread and quickly decided to make my peace with it. The way I learned to trust yeast and treat it well is through the […]

Oreo Brownies

Oreo Brownies for two - DessertForTwo.com

I judge Mr. Dessert For Two for eating oreos. In a house with homemade desserts, it feels like a knife in the heart.  We don’t have them in the house frequently, but just often enough to hurt my feelings.  When I hear the rustling of the package in the pantry, I turn my judge-y eyes […]

I have a prediction for you.  For the foreseeable future, all of my Dinner For Two recipes will be inspired by the meals we had on our honeymoon. On our honeymoon, we visited: New Orleans, Birmingham, Alabama, Savannah, Georgia, and Charleston, South Carolina.  The food of New Orleans sticks out in my mind the most. […]

Wow. Wow is all I can say. Double-u oh double-u. Wow. I understand why people say your wedding day is the best day of your life. Your wedding is the best day of your life because it is the only day when everyone you love is in the same room.  Your family, his family, all […]

Hi friends! I pre-scheduled this post for you.  Right now, the Mr. and I (and our two gold wedding bands) are driving from Tuscaloosa, Alabama with our bellies full of Dreamland barbecue to our final destination:  Savannah, Georgia.  Nestle asked me if I wanted to test out their new chocolate chips:  dark chocolate morsels.  I […]

Ok, sweet friends, I’m off!  We’re off to get married!  I will be back in about a month. We’re aiming for a cell phone-free, computer-less, and TV-free honeymoon.  Technology has no business on a honeymoon. So, that said, I have a recipe or two pre-scheduled to post, but I won’t be around for any baking […]

Well, we are really counting down the days this week.  I find myself thinking of my ‘lasts’ quite a bit:  the last time I’ll introduce myself with my maiden name, and the last time I’ll sign something with that name.  I can tell you that this will not be the last time I wrap a […]
