Heath Bit Cookies

These are the bendiest cookies! Dark brown sugar, slightly under baked. You can pop these babies in the freezer. Grab one when you need it and within a few minutes at room temp, you too can have the bends. The good kind. Heath Bits Cookies 3/4 c. Sugar 3/4 c. Brown sugar 1 c. Butter,…

Peach Parfait

Last weekend I hosted a small brunch on a whim and invented this adorable dessert with what I had in the fridge. Flat peach parfaits it would be. Make sure you try the flat or “plat” as they say here peaches this summer. Definitely a new favorite for me. Peach Parfaits Serves 2 1/2 package…

Lime in the Coconut Tart

I proudly present to you my Lime in the Coconut Tart. Basically take 10 limes and squeeze them into all the coconut products that you can find. She’s a lovely twist on a classic key lime because let’s face it, I haven’t seen those in Switzerland. Meow. This serving angle fueled by rose. Oh yes….

Speculoos Cheesecake

This Speculoos Cheesecake was whipped up on Valentine’s Day and is an excellent one to have in rotation because it’s simple to make and keeps you from getting kidnapped. Really, it’s not heavy, heavy, but it’s definitely the chubby cousin of Mum’s Euro cheesecake…. So, I kept it classy and created this small one. A…

Cheesecake’s European Cousin

Disclaimer: I am not a cheesecake kind of girl. I am not, I swear. However…lately…something about these European cheesecakes have me jazzed. Thanks to a sweet-toothed friend who always knows the right dessert spot (and usually insists on cheesecake), well, she has me crazy for these European cheesecakes. What’s a European cheesecake? I really have…

Fried Ice Cream Pie

Need the perfect make ahead dessert for your Taco Tuesday? It’s super casual, only taking three days to create. Really, though it’s quite simple. It’s just the freezing that keeps you wondering when you’ll get to finally try the finished product. Start a day or two in advance by making David Lebovitz’s gorgeous cinnamon ice…

White Chocolate Banana Pudding Pie Trifle

Real Talk: I have never had banana pudding. Ever. I also hate fake flavorings, so I don’t know what compelled me to need to make and consume this. Perhaps an old school comfort food in a daunting time? Since no faux banana flavor would be used in this recipe, white chocolate would have to do…

Mint Oreo Blizzard Cake

Need a last minute dessert that starts from a box cake? If you keep it simple or are better at decorating than yours truly, it should be take between a quick time and four hours. It’s a mint Oreo blizzard cake, just like Dairy Queen, well…without the ice cream. Check out this monster. I’d recommend…

Maitre Choux- London

A little sugar to kick off your morning, compliments of the Maitre Choux bakery in South Kensington. How gorgeous are these!? My Paris-Brest eclair was definitely my favorite birthday dessert of the trip! While I missed test driving any of the savories, they were the real star of the show for me. How creative, yet…

Key Lime Fine

This might be the strangest summer on record. Unless it was on a holiday weekend, I didn’t hit a single moment at any pool. There were no key lime pies. There were no melony, buratta-y, fresh tomato-y salads. I don’t have an inkling of what the song of the summer is. And bathing suit body?…

Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last Friday, I dropped off four Peanut Butter Cookies to a colleague as a simple, “happy-Friday-eat-these-with-your-coffee” treat. I come to find out that somehow she had rationed just a few cookies so that she could share them with both her mum and boyfriend. So sweet. Naturally, the next step was to make an entire batch…

Peanut Butter Cookies

A recipe so nice, I’ve made it twice (this week). (Don’t worry, mostly to distribute to friends and colleagues). The basis of this is Ina’s recipe, but it has been modified a bit for ultimate enjoyment and accolades from your friends and family. The need to try this came from the realization that I had…
