One of the reasons I’ve always been a tiramisu fan is that I love coffee, and the espresso-heavy dessert delivers a lot of coffee flavor. I rarely see it in other iterations, but there’s no reason why you can’t have a little variety with tiramisu in the same way you cane with other desserts. House of Annie made an “Asianified” Green Tea Tiramisu using matcha ... Read More »

Chocolate mousse is a great way to end a meal, but it can feel a bit heavy because it is so rich, even though the mousse itself might be fluffy in texture. Adding a hint of mint in an After Dinner Mint Mouse as Nami Nami did, lightens up the flavor and gives you a refreshing finish to dinner. The mousse actually uses After Eight ... Read More »

While chocolate, eggs, butter and sugar certainly make for a good cookie, it’s possible to get a delicious result when you cut out some or all of these ingredients. David Lebovitz‘s Nonfat Gingersnaps are a testament to it. It sounds like it took a while to nail down the recipe (nonfat baking can be quite tricky, especially where texture is concerned), and rave reviews from ... Read More »

Whole wheat waffles waffles sound like a really healthy way to start out the day.

The waffles are light and crispy, rich with butter and buttermilk, ... Read More »

The first step to making the candy bar is to make a batch of caramelized spicy peanuts, sweet with sugar and savory with ginger, paprika, cinnamon and curry. The nuts ... Read More »

Although panettone is a traditional Christmas dessert and we’re a bit past it at the moment, that doesn’t mean that you have to wait until next Christmas to enjoy one. Andrea’s Recipes has a recipe for Slow Rise Panettone that can be enjoyed all year long. The bread is time consuming and takes about 24 hours to make. Fortunately, most of the time is inactive. ...

It may be cold outside, but it’s never too cold for Santa and Snowman Milkshakes, like the ones Whisk made as holiday treats. A change from the usual hot chocolate, the milkshakes are made with real vanilla ice cream and milk, then decorated with chocolate syrup “painted” on the inside of the glasses to give the characters some, well, character. Pink food coloring (or perhaps ... Read More »

Even though it’s quite chilly outside, ice cream never really seems out of season. I’m still tempted by Annie’s Eats’ Malted Milk Whopper Ice Cream. The flavor of chocolate and malt is a winning combination in any form, but incorporating chunks of malted milk balls adds just enough of the familiar texture of those classic candies to take this ultra-creamy ice cream over the top. ...
