Cookie Truffles

Cookie Truffles
Although a well-made chocolate truffle is as close to perfection as you can get (in our humble opinion), the only thing that we could think of to make this confection perfection even more tantalizing was adding some texture so that the eating experience would be more interesting.  Lots of chocolatiers accomplish...

Coffee Cake Crunch Sticky Buns

Coffee Cake Crunch Sticky Buns
I know some people find the holidays to be an incredibly stressful time, but i absolutely love the last 6 weeks of the year when my thoughts revolve around designing party menus and tackling a to-do list of items that have been accumulating for months. These pair beautifully with freshly brewed coffee, a cold glass of milk or a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream

A Birthday Cake Alternative

A Birthday Cake Alternative
Cream pies are not something I grew up with.  We were an ice cream kind of family. No matter how cold it was outside, we always had at least 5 pints of ice cream in the freezer and if you wanted dessert after dinner that was what you were getting.  Which suited me fine because honestly, ice cream is delicious, right? it wasn't until i met my now-husband that i began to understand the merits of a good cream pie. 

Pumpkin Spiced Trifle

Pumpkin Spiced Trifle
Today, my tummy fortunately (or unfortunately) can't stomach those quantities of fat and sugar and so when my aunt sent me this recipe for a pared down, more sophisticated version of dirt, I got so excited i made it that afternoon. We used our Pumpkin Pie flavor in honor of the impending fall season and because those spice profiles pair so beautifully with chocolate & cream. 

SBB S'MORES

SBB S'MORES
Nothing says summer like s'mores, am i right? Over-toasting marshmallows on a campfire till they're crackly and black and ready to collapse under the weight of a graham cracker...that's what really gets us excited for bonfires, slightly cooler nights and a way to usher in the fall that makes it a little less painful to say goodbye to summer.

Greek Yogurt Crunch Pops

Greek Yogurt Crunch Pops
We're continuing our 'no-bake' summer desserts theme with these deliciously creamy, cold popsicles. Greek yogurt is a pretty hot and trendy ingredient right now; it's thick, tart in just the right manner, and full of protein. One of our favorite flavor combinations is chocolate peanut butter, so we added some small chunks of crunchy and sweet soft-baked biscotti to make the eating experience of these summer pops FUN!

Homemade Weekend Tiramisu

Homemade Weekend Tiramisu
When it's summer and it's hot the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven to bake dessert. Especially on a weeknight. And especially when it's seemingly easier to stick a spoon into a pint of ice cream....
