Pecan Tassies

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 -

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 -

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! ]

Perfect Iced Tea for two

Perfect Iced Tea for two -

I’ve got a peaceful morning routine ‘round these parts.  I’ve told y’all about it before. But, once the sun starts to get a little higher in the sky and Spring is in the air, I add another 30 seconds to my routine:  I make us fresh iced tea every morning. When I reach for my [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Keep It Sweet Bakery Giveaway!


Well, hello there!  I want to apologize for the delay in posting a new recipe.  I took a last-minute trip to Kansas to visit Mr. Dessert For Two because I could not bear the thought of him celebrating Easter alone in a hotel room.  Instead, we celebrated Easter together in a hotel room.  We ate [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Pineapple Breakfast Casserole

Pineapple Casserole-

Y’all trust me when it comes to desserts, right?  I thought so. So, believe me when I say that pineapple + buttery bread crumbs + cheddar cheese is delicious. I found this little gem of a recipe in my Mom’s recipe collection. My Mom is a little uneasy sharing recipes with me.  Maybe it’s because [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Dr. Pepper Cake

Dr Pepper Cake -

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

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 {gluten free}

Butterscotch Pudding -

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 -

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! ]
