This was utterly painless. I…

Chocolate-Dipped Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream Sammies


Behold, the homemade version of an It’s It. Have you had one? Do you love them? They are one of my most favorite ice cream treats from my childhood. About a year ago I posted this recipe to my Instagram but never to my blog. I know. The shame. You’ve missed out on an entire year of having these in…

I have been dreaming about this cake for some time…a super moist cake, loaded with heaps of banana, dotted with bits of dark chocolate and teeming with the taste of espresso throughout. We bake this cake low and slow. I’m talking, at 275 F…

Lemon Raspberry Tea Cake


Hey friends! Whew, the book is FINALLY turned in!! I’ve been thinking I’d like to write about the cookbook-writing process here…would that interest you? I have a lot of thoughts that I would love to share if you’re interested. I get to see the manuscript one more time, for several weeks in May, and I believe at that point it…

Almond Scented Meringues With Roasted Rhubarb + Berries


It’s been too long, hasn’t it? Working on my cookbook rekindled my love affair with meringues. So much so, that I wanted to make a beautiful dessert with it and was due for another recipe with Diamond Nuts of California, so voilá, here we are. These meringues are shatteringly crisp with just the essence of almond in there. To drive…

Good morning loves. I hope this finds you well, rested and happy. If not, I hope we’re working on it with some tea…maybe morning stretches or binge-watching your favorite shows. It all works. You’ll get there. I want you to think about this: melty ice cream and glossy pools of chocolate encased in a giant, chewy, slightly undercooked chocolate chip skillet…

Cranberry Pecan Baked Apples


We’re not making baked apples nearly as often as we should. I know this. For a fact. It’s just not a go-to dessert and I’d like to change that. First, because it is next-level deliciousness. Second, because it’s one of the easiest desserts you’ll ever make. I’m proposing these cranberry pecan baked apples as a sweet treat to get us through until…

Strawberry Cardamom Torte


You’re about to meet your new favorite dessert: strawberry cardamom torte. And it’s the easiest thing ever. You’re welcome. This recipe is only very slightly adapted from The New York Times’s Plum Torte recipe. I had never even heard of this recipe until this past plum season when I sent out a plea via Instagram: What to do with all of…

Balsamic Strawberry Brownies


I like brownies. No, check that. I love brownies. The only flaw in brownies, as far as I can see, is the fact that we always make them in that annoyingly small 8X8 pyrex dish. At my house that only feeds four of us. I’m just being completely honest with you guys. One way to get more mileage out of the…

S’more Brownie Tart With Pecan Graham Crust


Hold onto your boxer shorts, I’m doing a giveaway. I’ve always thought about doing one and some really fab companies have offered me product but, honestly, it sounded like a lot of extra work. So when Teri from NoCrumbsLeft approached me and asked if I wanted to do a joint giveaway of a Lagostina copper saucepan (see it up there in…

Chocolate Rye Stout Cake With Marshmallow Meringue


I mean…I’m not sure what else to say, but look at this stout cake. This is a beautifully damp cake. The rye-stout combo, while bold in its own right, hangs back and lets the chocolate notes take center stage. This combo does double-duty by also keeping overt sweetness at bay. The birth of this cake started with dreams of cream cheese frosting…which is pretty standard issue for a…

{ pucker up }


{ lemon-ginger pavlova with fresh strawberry sauce } Lemons are just a beautiful thing. When I was pregnant I couldn’t get enough of fresh-squeezed lemonade. Heaven. Even better was fresh-squeezed and muddled strawberry lemonade. Oh joy. I would search far and wide–which usually meant I sought out the closest Bristol Farms–for a tall frosty glass. We used to live in the…
