Gingerbread Flan

Easy-flan-recipe

OH YES. The holidays are for eating rich, custard-y things. I feel like I say the same thing about summer (hello, old friend ice cream), but the custards of the holidays have warming spices. And without warming spices, we would surely freeze to death. Did you catch that?: If you don’t eat this gingerbread flan, [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Breakfast Rice Pudding

Breakfast Rice Pudding | dessertfortwo.com

Morning food is some of my favorite food.  If you can believe it, I’m the most opinionated about breakfast.  I believe it starts your day out on the right foot—or wrong foot.  If I’m being good, which is Monday-Friday, I put on a pot of green tea first thing.  It is not until the entire [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Mixed Berry Mini Pavlovas

Mini-Pavlovas-071

Another dessert with berries? YES. Since my grocery store was sold out of broccoli (both fresh and frozen) and the baby spinach bin was empty too , I’m assuming you’re still on a health kick.  That’s fine, y’all, but seriously:  Valentine’s Day is coming up.  Get ready.  Your honey wants chocolate. Besides, calories are just [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Peanut Butter Kisses {gluten free}

Ahhhh, peanut butter kisses.  Or, peanut butter blossoms.  Whatever you call ‘em, they’re delicious.  They’re ridiculously easy to make (only 4 ingredients!), and they’re gluten-free.  It’s a win-win. We make these cookies year ’round when we’re craving something sweet after dinner.  They’re quick (15 minutes or less), and don’t require lots of ingredients.  I can [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Butterscotch Pudding {gluten free}

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! ]

Forgotten Cookies {gluten free}

Gluten Free Forgotten Cookies - DessertForTwo.com

First and foremost, Happy New Year, y’all! The arrival of the New Year just makes me feel older.  Even though I’m only 27, I’m finding myself in complete shock at how quickly time passes.  I can’t believe my 10-year high school reunion invitations are being addressed as we speak.  Don’t get me wrong though:  I [ Click to continue Reading! ]

French Macarons (with Nutella)

MacaronsforSiteFinal

I bet this Texas girl would have never had the chance to taste a French macaron unless she moved to California.  Trends seem to take their time creeping down South, sometimes never making it at all.  There’s nothing wrong with that, but after taking one bite of a macaron, I don’t think I could have [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Baked Apples with Sorghum Syrup

What’s sorghum syrup?  I’m so glad you asked.  It’s a sugar syrup made from the sorghum plant.  In Texas we call it milo.  We feed it to dairy cows.  In California, where water flows forth like a sweet miracle, we feed our dairy cows alfalfa.  Texas is not blessed with enough water to grow high [ Click to continue Reading! ]
