Lemon Poppy Seed Granola

Lemon Poppy Seed Granola - DessertForTwo.com

First, don’t forget to enter my small bakeware giveaway.  You have until February 7th at noon! I really enjoy making granola.  I adore the whole process of gathering up all the mason jars that contain the oats, nuts and seeds.  I love the feel of the dry ingredients between my fingers and the aroma of [...]

Well, hello there.  Aren’t you looking nice today?  Oh, stop, no need to flatter me back.  I’m just doing a little giveaway for y’all because the love in my heart is overflowing.  I never knew this website would bring such happiness into my life.  The process of creating recipes and photos each week is challenging but [...]

Cherry Vanilla Baked Oatmeal

Apparently, when I want to feel fancy, I reach for a vanilla bean and a kitchen torch.  Again and again.  I hope my friends and loved ones don’t mind the repetition.  A kitchen torch never fails to impress, and a vanilla bean never fails to deliver its intoxicating aroma.  Add cute little ramekins to the [...]

Let me interupt the Valentine’s Day Breakfast in Bed for Two series to bring y’all a little something chocolate-y.  I made this rich cake for my Nutella-holic friends over at Bella Nutella.  It’s a gussied up version of Eclair Cake: vanilla bean Frangelico pastry cream layered between graham crackers smeared with Nutella. To get the [...]

Cheddar Biscuit Breakfast Sandwiches

For all of you that I sent running in the other direction with my neon green smoothie with spinach, this recipe is for you.  I modified my standard half-dozen buttermilk biscuits to make cheddar garlic biscuits.  Consider it an apology for freaking you out with a vegetable on a dessert website.  This is one mouth-watering [...]

Next up in the Breakfast in Bed For Two series is a delicious, rich and indulgent smoothie.  By delicious, I mean rum.  By rich, I mean rum.  And by indulgent, I mean rum.  All before noon. I always try to take care of you health nuts out there.  Last year, I made y’all mulled wine [...]

Ok, y’all, one month til Valentine’s Day.  Are you ready? Valentine’s Day is a big deal here around Dessert For Two.  This is the time of year when couples bake teeny tiny desserts to share.  Personally, every day is Valentine’s Day for us, but that’s not as romantic as it sounds:  every day as Valentine’s means petite dishes with chocolate smears [...]

Chocolate Ginger Cookies

Chocolate Ginger Cookies - DessertForTwo.com

Three cookie recipes in a row?! I know, I know. But the heart wants what it wants, doesn’t it? Whenever I go home, I bring food gifts because even though Texas has plenty of good food, there are some gifts from California that even a Texan enjoys. There’s a local oil mill near my house [...]

PB & J Cookies

I’m feeling generous today.  I’d like to give you cookies and a good laugh at the same time.  For those of you who asked in my last post, I posted some old ‘emo’ photos of myself on the Dessert For Two Facebook fan page.  Laugh it up and enjoy while you can, because I will [...]

Forgotten Cookies {gluten free}

Gluten Free Forgotten Cookies - DessertForTwo.com

First and foremost, Happy New Year, y’all! The arrival of the New Year just makes me feel older.  Even though I’m only 27, I’m finding myself in complete shock at how quickly time passes.  I can’t believe my 10-year high school reunion invitations are being addressed as we speak.  Don’t get me wrong though:  I [...]
