Welcome to the Saint Patrick’s Day series, or as I like to call it, the most wonderful time of the year! I’ve been baking away, testing recipes and making shamrock cookies like it’s my job And now it’s time to get the party started with a cheesecake that I think might be my best cheesecake to date! I know, that’s an incredibly bold statement, but this Irish Coffee Cheesecake has got it all. It’s elegant, refined and full of personality. With a chocolate cookie crust, creamy cheesecake batter filled with Baileys and an Irish whiskey ganache that just melts into each bite, this is your must make Saint Patrick’s Day dessert!
I’ll take a slice of that, please! Even as I sip my coffee this morning, pie sounds like a good idea. I mean what’s not to love? From the classic to hand-held to ice box, the options are endless. Well, did you know that March 14th is Pi Day? Here I thought March was all about Saint Patrick’s Day, but it’s not all soda bread and shamrock cookies! So today I put together a sweet collection of “15 Pies You Gotta Try” to celebrate. From whoopie pies to lemon meringue pie to the Ultimate No Bake Peanut Butter Pie, there is truly something for everyone!
How about a little sunshine today? We can all use a little of that, right? And when the sunshine comes in the form of a cupcake, it’s even better. There’s a fresh dusting of snow on the ground this morning, and I am so over it. I don’t want to see a dusting, a flurry or anything that even resembles a snowflake from this point on. So these lovely little lemon cupcakes filled with bright meyer lemon curd and piled high with light, fluffy mascarpone frosting are how I’m dealing. They’re my way of sprinkling a little warmth and sunshine over winter, over this week and anything else you think needs it.
Hi, friends! It’s been a busy few weeks here, cruising around the Caribbean, that whole needing a vacation after vacation thing and then there’s all the new recipes I’m dying to share with you, like yesterday! After spending the past few days in the kitchen and digging through emails, I think I’ve officially settled back in and I have a real treat for you today. Not only are we going to be talking about these fabulous mocha meringues, but I’m also sharing a cookbook that I cannot get enough of: Cuisine Nicoise.
Happy New Year, friends! I promise you’re not seeing double! Last week I shared your favorite desserts of 2013 and this time I’m sharing mine! I have to tell you that I kind of thought there was no way I could do this. I mean how could I pick favorites? But as I was putting together your favorite desserts, which I love, I kept wondering to myself, I can’t believe roasted strawberry banana bread didn’t make the list and was everyone out of town when I shared the Bunny Butt cupcakes? And am I the only one who ate Kahlua Cookies and Cream Ice Cream for the whole month of August?
I can’t believe another year has come and gone! It’s been a seriously sweet year and that’s all thanks to you. Thank you for spending time here, trying recipes, commenting, emailing and sharing my love of all things sweet!
Today’s post is all about your favorite desserts, which is fabulous, because it’s no easy task trying to narrow down my favorites! I truly love every recipe I share with you, but I will tell you that every single time I make the Nutella Tiramisu, I fall in love all over again. Like, you might find yourself wanting to crawl into the dish. The Meyer Lemon Mascarpone Cake Roll will bring a smile to your face even in the dead of winter when there’s a foot of snow outside. The Blueberry Bliss Cheesecake Bars had to be taken out of the house so we’ll just leave it at that. And the Baileys Irish Cream Brownies – there are no words. Did your favorite make the list?
Happy Friday, friends! Let’s celebrate with cookies, shall we? I’m just going to put it all out there and tell you I saved the best for last. Funfetti shortbread is definitely my “it” cookie of the season! The most wonderful shortbread recipe filled with an epic amount of holiday sprinkles! They’re like a party waiting to happen! I’m smitten with these festive gems and the best part is you can make them two different ways; cut outs or slice and bake!
