Grilled Pimento Cheese + Fried Pickles

Pimiento Cheese and Fried Pickle Sandwich | dessertfortwo.com

This sandwich has a soundtrack.  I was styling the shot (oh my gosh, if you’re not a food blogger, can I just tell you how much actually goes into photo styling?  Q-tips, tweezers, the need for 3 hands, etc.)  Sorry, rant over. Anyway, an old Fruit Bats song was playing on my Pandora station, and I [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Sangria Swirled Frozen Margaritas

Sangria Swirl Margaritas | dessertfortwo.com

Happy Cinco de Drinko!  Err, Cinco de Mayo. I’m not allowed to make margaritas for my family any more.  Apparently, all you have to do to get taken off margarita duty is get grandma drunk one time.  Once! It’s a damn shame, too, because I happen to make the best frozen margaritas.  In college, I [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Tangerine Coriander Sorbet

Tangerine Coriander Sorbet Recipe | @dessertfortwo

Coriander has been getting a lot of play in my kitchen lately. I first had an orange coriander sorbet at a champagne bar in Chicago (I think it was Pops?), and I fell in love with it.  I scrawled it down on my inspirational / good God! life-is-worth-living list in my pocket notebook.  That was [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Jam Cocktails: Strawberry + Moonshine

Strawberry Jam Moonshine Cocktail | dessertfortwo.com

Now that I’ve publicly chugged whiskey right from the bottle (see this if you have no idea what I’m talking about), I feel like you and I can be a little looser with the whiskey ’round these parts.  Am I right?  Gosh, I hope so. Let’s shimmy our way from the aged whiskey to the [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Tahini Swirl Brownies

The massive jar of tahini is still not empty, in case you were wondering.  And, I’m still not done stirring it into desserts. Hold it right there, though, friends—if you’re craving super sweet brownies, these are not for you. However, if you find yourself snapping off a piece of 70% dark chocolate for a snack, [ Click to continue Reading! ]

A video about me!

Hi, friends!  I’m just popping in from Austin to share a video I made for y’all.  I thought you might like to get to know me outside of the words and photos on screen.  Plus, I know you’ve always wanted to know if I have maintained my Texas accent. In the first few seconds of [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Apple Pie Pizza

Apple Pie Pizza | dessertfortwo.com

I’m not naming any names, but someone in my house in on a juice cleanse.  And that someone’s favorite dessert is apple pie.  Their favorite food is pizza.  So, because I’m cruel, I made apple pie pizza.  It’s just that the house is starting to smell like raw kale.  I can’t deal anymore.  This apple [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Strawberry Rose Gin Fizz

Strawberry-Rose-Gin-Fizz | dessertfortwo.com

Please excuse my lack of self-control while I share all the strawberry recipes with you all at once.  I can’t keep these recipes to myself!  The strawberries are talking to me at this point.  They like to be soaked in gin, they say. There are a lot of flavors that go well with strawberries, but [ Click to continue Reading! ]
