Banana Cream Cookies

Banana Cream Cookies -

This house needs an intervention. We (Mr & Mrs Dessert For Two) are addicted to work.  We lack the ability to sit still, relax and take it easy.  We work hard Monday through Friday at our day jobs, and then on the weekends we tackle to-do lists that are often the length of a Southern [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Dinner For Two: Spinach Lasagna Roll-ups

Spinach Lasagna Roll-ups -

It’s about time for another Dinner For Two recipe, right?  I’ve been making a lot of meals for two lately, because I made a change in the way I approach dinner.  I used to spend about $100 a week on groceries— for just the two of us!  Isn’t that ridiculous?  My theory was:  buy whatever looks [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Apple Toffee Blondies

Apple Toffee Blondies -

By far, one of the most popular recipes on this site is my perfect blondies.  Coming in a very close second is perfect brownies.  Both of these recipes are made in a bread loaf pan to make just two servings.  Not that I couldn’t answer a craving for brownies by eating an entire 9×13″ pan, [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Fall Sangria

Fall Sangria -

I’m a year ’round wine drinker.  California will do that to you, I tell ya. My Kansas friends aren’t very into wine, so I’ve been designing wine cocktails to ease the process.  Everyone likes fruity wines, so I had the idea to create a sangria with the darlings of fall:  figs. For this recipe, I [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Kitchen Tour of Dessert For Two

Would you like a tour of my kitchen?  I’m so sorry I didn’t ask sooner! This is the Dessert For Two kitchen.  It’s also the granola-making-every-Sunday kitchen.  It’s the pack-lunch-everyday kitchen.  And it’s the make-dinner-from-scratch every night kitchen.  I spend more time in here than any other room in the house. When we first moved [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Mini New York Cheesecakes

Mini New York Cheesecakes -

On my most stressful days, I need a bite of cold creamy cheesecake.  But, I never have the time to make a whole cheesecake on days like that.  Enter mini cheesecakes!  One bowl, 15 minutes plus chill time and you’re in heaven.  This recipe makes 4 cupcake-sized cheesecakes. It gets better:  instead of grinding up [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Crumb Donuts

Crumb Donuts -

The best desserts have streusel on top, am I right?  Peach crisp, apple crumb pie, and berry crumble would all be lost without the crumb topping.  Buttery bits of cinnamon and brown sugar clumped together just have a way of making you lick your fingers to pick up every last crumb.   These donuts will [ Click to continue Reading! ]
