Dark Chocolate Nutella Cupcakes

If you’re looking for a swoon-worthy cupcake, you’ve come to the right place. Deep, dark chocolate cupcakes are the perfect vehicle for my whipped nutella frosting. I dare you to stop at just one. You’ll want to eat the frosting with a spoon. These are super simple to make. I threw the batter together while…

Amaretto Whipped Cream

Disaronno is my favorite alcohol of all time, so it’s an absolute wonder why I never talk about it here on The Rose Table. Amaretto is almond-flavored, which is the perfect complement to so many desserts. This would be delicious with a brownie, a chocolate tart, or so many different ice creams. I made this…

Dark Chocolate Hot Fudge

Some sundaes are worth melting for! This deep, dark hot fudge sauce keeps for ages and heats up perfectly each and every time, making it a great make-ahead dessert when you’re serving ice cream sundaes. I served this with vanilla bean gelato, amaretto whipped cream, slivered almonds, Ice Queen sprinkles, and a white chocolate snowflake…

The Cold Never Bothered Me Anyway Hot Fudge Sundae

Some desserts are worth melting for! You forget how great a hot fudge sundae can be. This is anything but ordinary. When I saw Ice Queen sprinkles by Fancy Sprinkles, I knew I had to serve an ice cream sundae at my Frozen dinner party. I added slivered almonds and amaretto whipped cream as an…

Roasted Banana Popsicles

Get ready for The Year of the Pop. I got a Zoku popsicle mold as a birthday gift a couple of years ago and have madeΒ precious few pops but that’s about to change. I often crave things I’ve never had and this is one of them. Never in my life have I eaten a roasted…

Fiori di Sicilia Blueberry Coffeecake

I really could not love fiori di sicilia any more. It’s a magical extract. One splash and bibbidi bobbi boo, you have yourself one fancy coffeecake. You can easily bake this in an 8″ or 9″ square pan if you prefer. When I have company, I usually bake this in a round cake pan and…

Belgian Waffles

I’ve lost track of many batches of Belgian waffles I’ve made. I make them all sorts of ways but most often I make them with maple syrup in the batter served with butter, blueberries, syrup, and a dusting of powdered sugar. I use King Arthur Flour’s Belgian waffle recipe as the base and then have…

Bourbon Honey Butter

Man I love bourbon. I guess I’m old fashioned like that. (Get it?Β Alright, that was corny but I happen to love corny.) This has only a hint of bourbon so as to infuse the butter with its flavor without knocking you in the face with alcohol. It comes together in mere seconds and really elevates…

Russian Teacakes

This is a very special Christmas cookie to me. Growing up I always disliked Russian Teacakes because I needed chocolate in all of my sweets but we baked them for my grandpa, who adored them. The year after he passed away, my mom pointed out that we didn’t need to make Russian Teacakes anymore. I’ve…

As seen on Good Day Fox 4

Thank you to the fine folks at Good Day Fox 4 for having me on the show! I taught Jenny Anchondo how to bake my Fiori di Sicilia Sugar Cookies and Candy Cane Brownies during my first ever TV cooking segment. A few reasons to love these recipes: Fiori di Sicilia is an orange-vanilla extract…

Pumpkin Oreo Pie with Cinnamon Whipped Cream

I have a confession, one we’ve never discussed before. I don’t really care for pie. I’ve met plenty of pies that I like but it’s not my favorite. I’ll take cake any day of the week over a slice of pie. My problem is the crust. Everyone talks about how to get a flaky crust…

Tarte Noir

This dessert is dark, sexy, and packed with dark chocolate flavor. So dark in fact that I almost named this Heart of Darkness Tart, but that seemed a bit dramatic (even for me). Paired with a minty blackberry sauce and fluffy whipped cream, this tart is sure to be a hit at your next get…
