Strawberry Shortcake Romanoff

romanoff 4

It’s getting close to summer, which means my refrigerator is stocked with fresh berries and my smoothie game has been on point. I even planted a couple of strawberry bushes this year, though so far I’ve only harvested about three. You’re going to need a lot more than that to make this adult take on strawberry shortcake, which is layered with soft brown sugar biscuits, juicy marinated strawberries, and sweetened whipped cream. Oh, and did I mention there’s booze in it?  😉   This[Read more]

Easy Tropical Tres Leches

fruity pattern

Hello friends! Sorry for the delay in posting, I recently got two of my wisdom teeth pulled (about 10 years too late amirite) and so I’ve felt a bit groggy from the pain meds. But I’ve bounced back! And now I have for you this super fun and colorful dessert idea: Tropical Tres Leches. My neighbor turned me on to this cake a couple of years ago, and guys—I can’t stop eating it. I legitimately crave it. There are times[Read more]

No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Here it is, guys. My first recipe of 2017. Peanut. Butter. Pie. Or as I like to call it, “the reason why I already broke my New Years resolution.” 😛    Look dude, you can’t really blame me for this. I wanted to make a peanut butter dessert all summer long but talked myself out of it because summer is supposed to be “light” and “airy” and incorporate a buttload of berries. Well, it’s winter now. And my thighs want[Read more]

Banoffee Pie

Have you been patiently waiting for part 2 of my Thanksgiving Extravaganza? Well, here it is folks: Banoffee pie. I know that it isn’t as traditional as the big three (pumpkin, apple, pecan) but it’s so delicious and so easy to make that it would be an absolute travesty if I didn’t share it on the most pie-filled month of the year. I would like to thank The Great British Bake Off for introducing me to this dessert. For those of you[Read more]

Key Lime Pie: A Recipe Review

It’s March here in Texas, and while I definitely a cake gal nowadays I cannot even begin to tell you how much I miss this pie. St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, so I’m totally not sitting here right now and thinking I can use that as an excuse to eat this wonderfully creamy and tart, yet sweet GREEN lime pie! And by green I obviously mean the way the pie was meant to look. A natural green;[Read more]

Chocolate Raspberry Napoleons

I just know that there are going to be some very angry bakers out there who will write to accuse me of cheating on this classic French dessert, which is actually more commonly known in France as mille-feuille. I decided to include it because it is one of the first desserts I made as the go-to dessert person for our Friday night neighborhood barbecues. Hence the awful photo of these beauties, literally just sitting on my kitchen counter in front of[Read more]
