Blackberry Bonbons

White chocolate dipped blackberries @dessertfortwo

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! ]

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! ]
