Ladies and gentlemen, we have had a break-through. The man who claims to not like fruit in his desserts, declared after his third serving of my blueberry sherbet that he ‘thinks he likes fruit desserts now.’  In full disclosure, I should tell you that Bluebell’s Southern Blackberry Cobbler ice cream may also be a part [ Click to continue Reading! ]

I would say we are officially settled in Kansas.  I say this because I just pulled a batch of granola from the oven.  I view the task of stirring granola every few minutes as it bakes in a low oven as a sign that life has slowed enough to allow for such time-consuming pleasures.  If [ Click to continue Reading! ]

If we are anything in this house, it is mint lovers.  But, this wasn’t always the case for me.  I used to pick peanut butter cups over peppermint patties.  I used to skip over all of Giada’s recipes that used fresh mint.  All of that changed when I found out that Mr. Dessert For Two [ Click to continue Reading! ]

I recently relinquished a bit of control in the kitchen.  I handed over the reins to Mr. Dessert For Two to make homemade ice cream.  I gave him a copy of the best ice cream cookbook in the world and lugged the ice cream maker up from the basement.

By now, you were probably hoping that I would have some things to say about our new home state of Kansas.  The truth is, I really don’t.  Some days, I absolutely love it (the weather is pretty similar to northern California), but other days I struggle with the fact that everything is new.  I can’t go into [ Click to continue Reading! ]
