Baked Spiced Apple Cider Donut Holes Made with Brown Sugar

Baked donut holes never excited me.  “A donut isn’t a donut unless it is fried,” I thought.  Well, I’m officially a baked donut convert!

Perfect Pumpkin Spice Caramel Apples

Caramel apples can be tricky.  Sometimes, the caramel can be jaw-breakingly hard (like candy apples).

Sweet Tea Crème Brûlée

When I told a friend that I was making sweet tea crème brûlée, she looked at me quizzically.  Crème brûlée, she thought, is not the type of dessert that you make at home.

5 Minute Gluten-Free No-Bake Crispy Chocolate Pumpkin Bites

I was playing with molecular gastronomy the other day to make treats for a birthday party and nothing was working.

Copycat Ted Drewes Frozen Custard Recipe

If you come to St. Louis and it’s not the dead of winter, chances are high that you will make a stop at Ted Drewes Frozen Custard.

The Best Ice Cream Cupcake of 2015 Is…

The judges had their work cut out for them.  We had some incredible entries in this year’s Cupcake Project + Cuisinart Ice Cream Cupcake Contest.

Stuffed Pumpernickel Pretzel Bites

These pumpernickel pretzel bites have the same doughy, chewy interior with a harder but still chewy crust that you would expect of any soft pretzel.

Pluot and Port Wine Tart with Brown Sugar Crust

We eat more pluots (a plum and apricot hybrid) in our house than any other summer fruit.  They are in our fruit bowl from the first time we see them on the shelves in May until a chill hits the air and they disappear from stores.

Sea Salt and Vinegar Caramel Buttercream Frosting

In all the years of writing this blog, I’ve only created a single food trend: pumpkin pie frosting made from pumpkin pie.

5 Surprising Ways Music is the Same as Dessert

I spent the past week in Nashville, Tennessee.  Nashville is known as Music City, but heading there I was thinking about the food far more than the music.

Spicy Chocolate and Mexican Street Corn Ice Cream Cupcakes

Friendly reminder:  You have until August 15 to enter the Cupcake Project + Cuisinart Ice Cream Cupcake contest.

Pierogi Pie is a Cross Between Loaded Baked Potatoes and Mac n’ Cheese

What started as an irresistible pun, a pie-rogi pie, became a winning comfort food pie that tastes like a cross between loaded baked potatoes and macaroni and cheese.

Homemade Potato and Cheddar Pierogies

I used to date a guy who regularly had pierogies for breakfast.  Never once in the whole time we dated did either of us consider making homemade pierogies.

Announcing The 2015 Cupcake Project + Cuisinart Ice Cream Cupcake Contest

I last hosted an ice cream cupcake contest in 2012.  I can’t believe it’s been three years!  This year, I am working with Cuisinart to bring it back better than ever!

Tiramisu Popsicles to Quench Your Summer Tiramisu Cravings

These tiramisu popsicles have two distinct sections.  I prefer the icy and sweet coffee layer spiked with a splash of rum (I may make myself whole popsicles with just that layer sometime!

Cookies and Cream Éclairs

My cookies and cream éclairs start with a pâte à choux (a French pastry that tastes like donuts).  The pâte à choux is then stuffed with cookies and cream pastry cream, drizzled with a powdered sugar glaze, and sprinkled with Oreo pieces.

Vegan Vanilla Meringue Frosting Made with Aquafaba

I gave my unsuspecting mother-in-law a cupcake with vegan vanilla meringue frosting made with aquafaba.

Pop Rock Popsicles

These pops rock! (I had to go there.)  Much as I love my Pop Rock Rice Krispie treats that actually snap, crackle, and pop, I adore the idea of popping popsicles!

Streusel-Topped Peach-Stuffed Corn Muffins

Corn muffins are often unremarkable – although they always make superb delivery mechanisms for honey butter.

Southern Sorghum and Bourbon Pecan Butter

My master plan was to make a southern sweet pecan butter to spread on corn muffins.  Because things rarely stay simple around here, the pecan butter turned into sorghum and bourbon pecan butter and the corn muffins turned into streusel-topped, peach-stuffed corn muffins.
