Homemade chocolate chip cookie dough cups with no bake, edible cookie dough! The perfect snack to keep on hand in your freezer. What started as a simple idea for a sponsored Instagram post has quickly grown into one of my favorite homemade chocolates ever (really - ever!). I've only got a few of these chocolate chip cookie dough cups left in my freezer, and I'm already feeling anxious about their absence from my life. Another...
Impossibly creamy cheesecake with chocolate chip cookie crust and dulce de leche swirls. Let me start by saying this: my husband and I are bonafide cheesecake snobs. We've eaten the best of the best in NYC (and no, it is not Junior's), and tear down every which way that a cheesecake falls flat or doesn't make the cut. So believe me when I claim this dulce de leche cheesecake to be damn near perfect. I...
Layers of matzah, a toffee-like caramel, semi-sweet or dark chocolate, and an abundance of sea salt. Matzah crack is one treat you will crave every single day. You asked, and I heard. The demand for matzah crack was so overwhelming that I decided to go ahead and put it up on the blog, even though Passover is long behind us. Which is actually fine because as far as I'm concerned matzah crack should be a year round...
Milk Bar's Crack Pie is a force to be reckoned with. An oatmeal cookie crust topped with a creamy pudding-like texture is the pie of your dreams. This one is personal. Today we celebrate Pi Day -- 3/14 -- also lovingly referred to as pie day. But perhaps most importantly (to me) it's the anniversary of when my husband and I began dating. Today marks 16 years together. Sixteen! I'm 32 years old... which means I've...
So I did this thing where I made cinnamon pate a choux and filled it with tiramisu pastry cream. It's super fun, screams holiday, and is about to be gone because I can't stop eating them. And why should I? Tiramisu cream puffs are a dream come true -- light, flavorful, and far easier to make than you might expect. (Read on! I'm sharing my tips!) If I'm being perfectly honest, tiramisu ranks high on the...
I am so excited to have a pecan pie recipe on my website. Finally! Last year I posted a pecan tart, and looking back at it now, I absolutely hate it. Mostly, I hate the photos. The colors, the styling, the editing. The tart itself was fine. (Isn't it funny how much we evolve and grow in one year?!) But this. This is the stuff of dreams. The best part? It's got both chocolate and bourbon. Because...
Nothing beats moist, decadent homemade chocolate cupcakes with espresso buttercream. In fact, I bet you'll find yourself eating the espresso buttercream frosting with a spoon! Alright, let's get one thing straight: these homemade chocolate cupcakes are great and all, but the star of the show is the over-the-top, unbelievably delicious espresso buttercream. Grab your spoons, friends, 'cause this one you can eat straight from the bowl. So when is a good time to make these...
I would like to hereby suggest that tres leches cake be, forever more, a year round staple. It has lots of protein (or so I'm told), and can pretty much cure any seasonal ailment. For instance, suffering from the winter blues? A slice of tres leches cake will surely help. Embracing the bounty of vegetables form the first spring harvest? Balance out your diet with tres leches cake! (I refer to this as 'moderation.') Melting...
These s'mores cups are the love child between a homemade peanut butter cup and the classic campfire treat. Freeze some for later...or eat them all now! There are some desserts that speak to my soul; that transport me to a time or place locked in a memory. I'd be lying if I said that s'mores was one of them. Growing up in Florida, we didn't use our fireplace very often. Actually, I'm surprised my family...
Copycat Magnolia Bakery banana pudding. AKA: the only way I will eat bananas in a dessert. So here's the thing -- I do not like bananas. I understand this is a completely abnormal trait and basically makes me seem like an alien, but alas, there it is. Even when they're green, the texture is displeasing. And when they're yellow or covered in brown spots? Forget it. Like, don't even come near me with one of those....
