Earl Grey Ice Cream with Lavender Caramel Sauce

In all of the Curve/Lingerie Collective/LingerieFW madness, my domestic goddess skills totally fell by the wayside. My desk and coffee table are buried under catalogues and line sheets, there’s a stack of business cards I deeply hope the cat doesn’t discover and knock over, and the laundry pile is growing ominous. One night I stopped […] Read more…

Lemon Tart à la Julia

I’ve been wanting a copy of Mastering the Art of French Cooking for a long, long time.  I owned quite a few dessert/baking cookbooks from an early age, and almost every author acknowledged a heavy and long-standing debt to Julia Child for the way she revolutionized how we think about cooking and food in the […] Read more…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Hearts

In the lead-up to Christmas […] Read more…

Sugar and Spice Cookies

I’m so predictable when it comes to my baking. As soon as the temperatures drop below sixty all I can think about is all of the delicious, warm, comforting things I didn’t want to bake when it was hot out. Sweet potatoes, roasted root vegetables, homemade pizzas, biscuits, rolls, bread, pumpkin, and, most of all, […] Read more…

Espresso Bomb Ice Cream

What ho!  I have internet again!  Let’s GET DOWN TO IT. [At some point in the future I’m going to provide the recipe for Espresso Bombs, but suffice it to say that they’re essentially single servings of chilled coffee ganache, topped with chocolate-covered espresso beans. Chocolate, cream, espresso: an unholy trinity of awesome that inspired […] Read more…
