Dessert Recipes

Dessert is a time where I really like to experiment. I tend to eat the same things day-to-day. I’m usually cooking just for myself so it’s easier to make one things and eat it for a few days. That’s why I don’t post a lot of dinner recipes.

A sweet & tart no-bake Cranberry cream tart with a chocolate cookie crust is the perfect make ahead dessert

I’m not really big on sweet, sweet things. When it comes to dessert recipes I’m all about dark chocolate, rich berry and subtle natural sweetness. Not that I don’t throw in the occasional sugar bomb! My Cranberry Cream Tart is a great example of a dessert recipe that strays away from super sweet territory.

Whip up a sweet dessert with this Shirley Temple No Bake Cheesecake recipe. Made with cream cheese, maraschino cherries and real whipped cream in a lemon Oreo crust it's sure to be a hit

Speaking of sugar bombs, my Shirley Temple No-Bake Cheesecake can proudly claim that title. When it comes to dessert recipes I have a few go-to techniques that I know I can always turn to, like folding something into whipped cream. That makes an appearance in my Shirley Temple Cheesecake,  Spiced Pumpkin Parfaits and Black Raspberry Fool.

Forget hunting down a ripe strawberry in February, get the sweet strawberry and chocolate flavor combo in this Swirled Chocolate Strawberry Bark. It comes together quickly with 3 ingredients and a microwave so you can get back to smooching your sweetheart ASAP!

I also love working with chocolate melts, almond bark and candy melts. If you’re in the mood to impress people you can’t go wrong with homemade candy. You can go easy with Chocolate Strawberry Bark and Toasted Almond Cranberry Bark or fancy with Whiskey Filled Chocolates.

Spicy, sticky and moist, this pumpkin gingerbread is the perfect accompaniment to a hot cup of coffee and a dollop of whipped cream

I clearly have an affinity for no-bake desserts but I do occasionally fire up the oven. Even when it’s not Christmas Cookie Tray Season. My Pumpkin Gingerbread is spicy, dense and sticky, everything a gingerbread should be.
