There is something really beautiful and subtle in the mixture of raspberries and rose water, I cannot stop recommending it. In this recipe, we almost create a twist on a berry tiramisu. You will need more lady fingers than you think, so stock up! I used about 55-60 to fill out my 12 inch spring form.
Marscapone Custard Tart
Some recipes are planned, others are the result of accidents…and this was a beautiful accident. I was preparing for my book launch and kneading bread as my egg whites for my tiramisu were whipping up. I got them to that beautiful firm peak, and proceeded to mix my mascarpone egg yolk mixture in…and I figured, I would just let my KitchenAid mix them together on the lowest setting. Wrong! I always say fold egg whites in by hand, and I didn’t follow my own advice! As the two mixed, the egg whites fell and turned into a delicious but liquidy mess that would never work for tiramisu.
Nico loves Crème Brûlée, and I love baking him delicious things! I just refilled my butane torch and have been itching to see if my Crème Brûlée would be improved by using one of the vanilla beans I brought back from Hawaii instead of the vanilla extract I was using previously.
OMG! It. Was. Amazing! Totally worth using a vanilla bean, and you can make vanilla extract out of once used beans by submerging them in vodka for a month or so! If you don’t have vanilla beans, don’t worry, replace the bean with 1-2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.

Mochi Ice Cream Daria Souvorova 2 hours active, 12 hours + rest makes: 10-60 mochi ice creams (dough recipe is for 10) Cute! That is the best way to describe these lovely, colorful balls of deliciousness. I love ice cream, but hate it dripping down my hands as I try to finish off my cone….
Lavender Macaron with Lemon Buttercream
Lavender makes me think of the summer. I always imagine a countryside in Italy or France with fields of violet, or seemingly carelessly placed pots of lavender and rosemary basking joyfully under the hot sun as bees frolic from flower to flower. I think of lavender and lemon squeezed over desserts and fish alike. These…
Chocolate Macaron with Orange Blossom Buttercream and the Secret of the Macaron

I have been working feverishly to perfect it and make this famously difficult dessert attainable for the home cook, and I have some secrets to share! Due to the famed difficulty of properly preparing these cookies, French pastry chefs would (and…
Award Winning Salted Chocolate and Caramel Tart
I was walking to the market the other day and saw a neighborhood sign advertising a Memorial Day cookout on Sunday featuring a Pie Contest! I was intrigued! I have never entered a pie baking contest before! I knew I was making a lot of desserts for my own cookout on Monday afternoon, so I…
Lemon Custard with Lemon Curd Topping
I love lemon curd, but for some reason didn’t think of making it myself until a year ago when I found myself with a dozen egg yolks left over from a big merengue I was making. So many of my recipes are created out of the leftover ingredients of other cooking endeavors, but I am…
