Flourless Black Forest Cake is a gluten free treat inspired by in-season cherries and classic Black Forest Cake.
I forget about flourless chocolate cake. Tucked at the bottom of most dessert menus as a token “gluten free” option, I think it’s easy to assume flourless chocolate cake isn’t as “exciting” as less familiar items with longer names. Until, of course, we want something rich, unapologetically chocolate, and so decadent it’s best for sharing. Then, we remember, and wonder why we forgot in the first place. And then it’s cherry season and we have to do something about that too, so why not combine cherries and chocolate? (more…)

Summer desserts this year are about two things here: ice cream and fruit. Know why? Ice cream, even the homemade kind, is relatively effortless, and there is so much amazing fruit in season! As much as I love to cook, I also love being present and available for making summer memories. Spring and summer are also when we eat the most fresh berries because that’s when they taste best.
Longer evenings lend themselves to indulging in more dessert after dinner, and berries (or ice cream) make an easy treat. But sometimes it’s fun to dress things up a little. This raspberry ice cream parfait is a perfect way to serve a beautiful no bake summer dessert and celebrate the flavors of the season. (more…)
Cherry Long Island Iced Tea is a seasonally inspired twist on the classic Long Island Iced Tea recipe.
Cheers to “accidental recipes”, darlings! I’m so glad we had leftover cherry cola from a family visit so we could make this Cherry Long Island Iced Tea, because it is one delicious summer cocktail. Long Island iced teas are designed for slow sipping on hot summer evenings. (more…)
Cajeta, a goat’s milk version of dulce de leche, is a delicious caramel for desserts. You can make dulce de leche from scratch using either goat’s milk, or cow’s milk.
I rediscovered goat’s milk this summer, darlings. We can thank brunch at a local diner, actually. The Godfather and I were waiting in line for our table, and a poster on the wall had an ad for the restaurant’s goat cheese cheesecake. I told the Godfather I was going to make some and add caramel. He rolled his eyes a little since he only likes goat cheese in warm savory dishes, but when I get a certain look, he knows I’m going to make what I want anyway. I haven’t made the cheesecake. In case y’all haven’t noticed, it’s about a million degrees outside and just getting hotter. But the siren song of goat-based dairy called to me, and I ordered some goat’s milk from my milk farmer.

I can’t remember the last time I left the house without a snack in my purse and didn’t think, “There might be a meltdown.” Not that I will melt down, but the eldest tiny member of my entourage might. Sometimes, I live on the edge, but mostly, I stock my bag with a few good snack options. (more…)
