    Chocolate Mango Tart

    We have just a few days until the official start of Summer! Summertime makes me think beach trips, barbeques, and tropical flavors. I had a hunch that mango would work with chocolate, and I got to work! The result: this Chocolate Mango Tart!

    Coconut Mocha Pie

    My creative process is a little…messy. It’s completely the opposite of the rest of my life which is precisely planned with a series of lists and Excel spreadsheets. My most recent, messy creation: Coconut Mocha Pie.

    Blackberry Lavender Brownie Pie

    I was having a creative block in the kitchen recently. Usually recipes just pop into my head or I whip up something random up to satisfy a craving. It just wasn’t happening, and trying to be creative just isn’t something that works! I took a break, I stopped trying, and this Blackberry Lavender Brownie Pie happened. And it’s magic.

    Neapolitan Cake

    Just in time for your Easter celebrations: Neapolitan Cake! I’ve wanted to make one of these for a long time, and when I found these little bunny grahams at the store, it sealed the deal! The little bunnies make this perfect for Easter, but this beauty is dessert glory year-round!

    Coconut Macadamia Cookies

    I’ve been on a real cookie kick around here lately. Cookies aren’t something I share on the blog much, especially not drop cookies like these. I feel like sometimes they just aren’t special enough to warrant sharing here. I’m here to tell you that these Coconut Macadamia Cookies are very, very special indeed!

    Hazelnut Espresso Truffles

    We’ve all seen the heart-shaped boxes full of Valentine’s Day chocolates. With rare exception, these mass-produced candies disappoint in flavor and (*resisting direct Forrest Gump quote*) who knows what you’re actually taking a bite of. These Hazelnut Espresso Truffles are what your valentine really wants!

    Peppermint Mocha Cookies

    I’ve had this idea for Peppermint Mocha Cookies in my brain for *years.* I finally decided that THIS is the year to make them a reality! 2020 hasn’t been a great year, but with cookies like this, it’s not all bad, either! 😉
