Let the record show that I, Christina Dessertfortwo (legal name-change pending), am a huge fan of cookies that are baked and then rolled in sugar.  Cookies: full of sugar, check.  Cookies rolled in sugar?  Double check.  Make that double chin. These cookies are soft and tender, and yeah, they melt in your mouth. I whipped [ Click to continue Reading! ]

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! ]

Apple Fritters

I’ve been making a grave mistake for years. When I go into a donut shop, I ponder over cream-filled versus plain.  Cake versus fried.  Icing versus cinnamon sugar.  Whole versus holes.  I always skip over the fruit fritters.  Fruit in my donut?  Thanks, but I’ll take sugar glazed with sugar and dipped in chocolate, please.  [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Texas Peanut Patties

I’ve been re-living a cringe moment in my head the last few days.  I don’t know what brings these old memories back to the surface, but when it happens, it takes days to shake it off. When I was in college, I taught yoga classes.  The yoga classes were part of a general fitness program [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Thin Mints

I’ve got a bone to pick with an 8-year old girl. Look, I’m not the jealous type, but I really don’t like other women cooking for my man. Sometimes Mr. Dessert For Two takes a break from desserts.  He resists the sweets that come out of my kitchen.  And yeah, it kinda bugs me.  It [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Authentic Tiramisu

Tiramisu for two - DessertForTwo.com

Real tiramisu.  Authentic Italian tiramisu.  Y’all asked, I delivered. Not only was this dessert highly requested by you, my fabulous readers, but also, when I made a redneck version of tiramisu with apple pie moonshine, you received it so well.  Thanks for not balking at my down-home version.  As a reward, I made you the [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Pecan Tassies

This is normally the time of year when I try to score good deals on plane tickets home for Christmas and Thanksgiving.  You would think that buying this early in advance would be cheaper, and it is, but only slightly.   However, I’m just a few weeks away from moving within driving distance of my [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Cookie Dough Bites

Small batch of cookie dough bites - DessertForTwo.com

I like cookie dough.  You like cookie dough.  We all like cookie dough.  But let’s have some portion control, shall we? This recipe makes only 8 cookie dough bites.  If you are someone who eats cookie dough in secret, in fear of being considered childish for liking it, this one’s for you.  You can eat the [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Apple Cider Tiramisu

Apple Cider Tiramisu - DessertForTwo.com

I’ve been hinting at desserts with moonshine for quite some time. The problem with moonshine is that you’re not likely to remember the things you were doing before you drank it.  It is quite possible that I’ve made ten desserts with moonshine and only photographed this one.  Oh, and this one, too. Moonshine (also referred [ Click to continue Reading! ]
