Dinner for Two: Fried Zucchini Pasta

Spaghetti with fried zucchini @dessertfortwo

It’s been a pretty zucchini-light year. Between the squirrels, chipmunks, and heavy summer rains, I’ve barely had more than 5 from the garden. I suppose it’s better than having excess and pawning them off on complete strangers. I have this friend named Martin (he’s the one that I made the wedding cake for), and he loves [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Blackberry Bonbons

At this point, I probably owe Rachael Ray a drink. Or at least a very nice bottle of Tuscan wine. In every issue of her magazine, I find at least one gem to post here. I’ve shared her Raspberry Sorbet Watermelon Sandwiches and my all time favorite easy dinner: Charred Corn Tilapia lately. The woman [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Tea Infused Blueberries {so many uses!}

Blueberries soaking in tea @dessertfortwo

If you don’t have at least a few friends with unusual dietary restrictions, I say you need more friends.  Every time I have people over for a meal, I take a running tally of their food preferences and intolerances.  I think it’s fun!  I love cooking for people with food allergies.  I love showing them [ 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! ]

Just Checking In…#3

Christina Lane @dessertfortwo

  Hi, friends!  I thought I would check in to update you on a few things.  I try to update you once a month or so only when I have exciting things to share.  If I check out 64 cookbooks from the library and sit on the couch to read them all month long, I [ 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! ]
