A few things they don’t teach you in college but they really should: 1.  Be charitable.  Give yourself: your time, your money, your thoughts, your prayers to someone in need.  The more you give, the more you will receive, but try not to think about that part too much.  I have a few friends (Seth [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Mixed Berry Sour Cream Pie

Hold onto your hats, folks, because I’m about to confess something: I used to not like pie. I used to think that fruit was best enjoyed fresh, not cooked.  And then I met Esther. I’ve told y’all a little bit about how I met Esther the first day I lived in California.  I said I would [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Butterscotch Pudding - DessertForTwo.com

I’ve made three batches of pudding this past week. I churned out a vanilla bean pudding (I subbed an equal amount of vanilla bean paste for extract) a cheesecake pudding for lovely friends, and this butterscotch pudding. Pudding is comforting, and it’s the sort of thing that we’ve needed lately.  Mr. Dessert For Two left for Kansas bright [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Boozy Shamrock Shakes

Shamrock Shakes with Moonshine - DessertForTwo.com

I said I wasn’t going to do a St. Patrick’s Day recipe. This blog has been here 2 years without an Irish-inspired dessert on it.  I let March 17th come and go each year without pulling out the green food coloring.  Mainly, because, well, I’m not Irish.  Do they check your ID and look for [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Marble Pound Cake

Let’s face it: we live in a Momofuku world. Desserts these days are prized for taking hours to create, containing outlandish ingredients, and requiring surgeon-like skills to execute. If you’re not familiar with the wild desserts coming out of this New York restaurant, here is a good article by Bon Appetit. I think desserts like [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Half-Dozen Fried Donuts

Fried Donuts - DessertForTwo.com

I’ve shared a few donut recipes before, and they are good, but…they are baked. Let’s do this donut thing right.  And by that I mean FRIED. The first time I fried something, I felt like the most domestic girl in the world.  I couldn’t believe this skill was in my arsenal.  I decided it must be genetic, [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Strawberry Pudding

I don’t know about you, but I had never seen fruit pudding made from scratch until I saw blackberry pudding tarts in Southern Living’s Classic Southern Desserts.  The idea intrigued me, so I had to make it last week when strawberries went on sale for Valentine’s Day.  Creamy, tangy fruit with the richness of pudding could [ Click to continue Reading! ]

How many bites does it take to get to the crust in a slice of coconut cream pie?  My guess is 8 or so, depending on the size of your mouth.  I made you 8 bites of coconut cream pie to share with one lucky person. Remember when I made y’all baklava and I asked [ Click to continue Reading! ]
