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! ]

French Burgers + French Fries

French Burgers + French Fries @dessertfortwo

I’ve made two grave mistakes in the kitchen lately, and I just can’t help but think another one is right around the corner.  Everything happens in threes, right?  My first mistake was to make that healthy alfredo sauce recipe that uses cauliflower instead of cream.  The recipe has been floating around the internet lately.  Can you say [ 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! ]

S’mores Rice Crispy Treats!

S'mores Rice Krispie Treats @dessertfortwo

No bake is the name of the game, friends.  Although, I can’t complain—it’s been a mild summer so far.  You too?  Personally, I love the humidity.  My hair is flat and straight, so humidity just doesn’t get its way with me—it was over before it even started.  I like how humidity makes your skin glow. I’m way [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Grilled Stone Fruit + Almond Mascarpone Dip

Grilled stone fruit with mascarpone and candied almonds @dessertfortwo

I know this is hard to believe, but I don’t always cook for two. Even harder to believe: I have friends! Real life friends. (of the non-internet variety!!). And since my real-life friends have to hear about my internet friends and pretend it’s not weird, I cook for them. Quite frequently, actually. I made this [ 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! ]

Just Checking in… {+giveaway}

Is it too early for this?

Whoa. That’s all I have to say for the month of June. I don’t know where it went. All I know is: I’ve been drinking coffee, sleeping in hotel rooms more often than my own bed, and I can’t remember the last time I smashed an avocado on toast. All of these things throw me [ 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! ]
