I like to indulge those warm Indian summer mornings with breakfast outside. These jalousies are a great option because they're incredibly simple to put together, especially if you have frozen puff pastry and fresh fruit on hand.
There's a trick up the sleeve of this old fashioned peach cobbler.
Ripe peaches tucked inside a boozy, butterscotch-like ice cream. A great way to say, hey, summer, I'm glad you're still here.
Homemade raspberry ice cream is sandwiched by two layers of irresistible chocolate cookie crumbs.
Cobbler is insanely simple to make—just mix up easy drop biscuits and throw them over a layer of slightly sweetened summer fruit.
In this quintessential summer dessert, sweet blueberries are topped with easy cream biscuits.
While there is nothing wrong with the fancy ice cream sandwiches that people seem to love these days, sometimes you just want the classic.
In this adult spin on the childhood treat, a layer of intense, bittersweet chocolate is sandwiched between a graham cracker crust and a toasted mini-marshmallow topping.
Say what you will, I still have a soft spot for this childhood dessert. It doesn't make any sense, really—the jury's still out on if a crappy soft serve cone makes a cupcake better, or worse—but who the heck cares? It's all about the novelty.
If ever there was a match made in supermarket aisle heaven, it's Nilla Wafers and bananas. They're best known for their masterpiece duet entitled Banana Pudding, but have you ever thought to put them in a cake?
These cookies pay homage to the spicy-sweet flavors found in mole. Ancho chile powder adds a subtle, smoky heat that deepens the flavor of the chocolate.
What's that you say? You have nothing in your house but Oreos, ice cream, some butter and salt? Well, good news: you have yourself a pie.
Get out your whites, your grill mitts, and your beer cooler—it's Memorial Day weekend! What better way to end your first big outdoor meal than with this classic Southern picnic cake?
This bread pudding plays on the flavors of Thai coffee by adding condensed milk, espresso, cardamon, and cinnamon to the custard. Buttery challah soaks it all up.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of Mallomars. 100 years? You don't get to be that old if you're not awesome—so awesome that we want a recipe we can make at home during the months when Mallomar production goes on vacation.
A pie that looks like a buckeye, tastes like a buckeye, and has lots of buckeye candies on top.
If you spend much time in bakeries, you'll notice that a few classic French pastries have been thrust into the spotlight. Kouign-amann is one, canelés (or cannelés) are another. Canelés are a cylindrical pastry from Bordeaux with a soft, custardy center and a thick, caramelized outer crust. Ever wondered how to make them at home? We have a step by step guide and recipe—and we promise they will make a very rewarding Saturday.
Get into to warm weather spirit with these tropical cupcakes. A moist vanilla cake is studded with diced pineapple and flavored with rum and coconut. Each cupcake is topped with a coconut cream cheese frosting (that also contains rum, of course). You'll be surprised by how much this two-bite dessert really tastes like a sip of the drink.
These sables are one of my absolute favorite cookies. Using real vanilla bean gives them a heady aroma and strong taste that's a mix of old fashioned birthday cake, rum, and custard.
