Chambord Brownies

Can a dessert be sexy? If so, this is a sexy brownie. They’re rich, fudge-y, and have a deep, dark chocolate flavor. They also come together in an absolute snap since you don’t need softened butter. Not that I tried the batter, but it’s delicious too. (Yes, I’m that person. No I do not appear…

Lemon Blueberry Cake

This really might be one of the most special cakes I’ve ever made. Tart with freshly squeezed lemon juice and bursting with blueberries, this layer cake smells like pure heaven. You don’t have to frost this to be a “naked cake” like I did here but the frosting was gorgeous as-is and I didn’t want…

Cookies ‘n’ Cream Cake

It might surprise some of my loyal readers that I love cookies ‘n’ cream, since I hardly promote processed cookies. What can I say? I’m a sucker for cookies ‘n’ cream ice cream! I decided to turn my love of cookies ‘n’ cream into a cake. Here’s what I came up with: This is a…

Diner en Blanc Cake

Looking for a snow-white cake to take to Le Diner en Blanc? You’ve come to the right place! This is a delicious white cake worthy of any gathering but is particularly appropriate for the glamorous pop-up picnic around the globe best known for the fact that its guests wear head-to-toe white ensembles. Attendees take their…

Stracciatella Ice Cream

I’ve hardly published any ice cream recipes here on The Rose Table, which is pretty shocking since almost anyone who frequents my house eats homemade ice cream all the time. I’ll tell you why: I always have the ingredients on hand and I keep my ice cream maker bowl in the freezer so it’s literally…

Captain Jack Sparrow Cupcakes

“I had no idea when you and your brother were small that I was raising pirates.” My mom said that to me just the other day. I’m not sure if she was referring to me and my brother’s affinity for the ocean, rum, swearing, or our general swashbuckling demeanor but either way, it made me laugh!…

Fun and Easy S’Mores Bar

I always keep certain things in my house so if someone drops by unexpectedly, I can pull together dessert at the drop of a hat. I can always make homemade ice cream or at least whip some cream to serve with fruit. Now that I have a fire pit (more on that later), I keep…

Tropical Pineapple Sundae

Anyone else feel like taking a tropical vacation without paying for an expensive plane ticket? Me too! I’ve found the most gorgeous pineapple at my store the last few weeks and decided to turn one into a fun sundae. The pineapple topping is only FOUR ingredients and would be equally delicious over a waffle. Can…

Candy Cane Brownies

Chocolate lovers, rejoice! This is the Christmas brownie for you. Rich and dense and full of candy cane goodness, Santa will love seeing my Candy Cane Brownies by the tree! Candy Cane Brownies 3/4 cup butter, melted 1 1/2 cups sugar 1/2 tsp salt 3/4 cup dark cocoa powder (I use Hershey’s Special Dark) 3 large eggs…

Gilded Brownies

Is there be a chicer brownie than one topped with edible gold dust? You can find edible gold dust for very cheap at most craft or cooking stores or just order it here from Amazon. If you don’t have gold dust, this brownie recipe is still a delicious one to have one hand. I gilded them for…

Dark Chocolate Popcorn with Sea Salt

I whipped this up for my Phantom Masquerade party and it was a total hit. I never think to serve popcorn and now I think I may have to serve variations of this at all of my parties. It’s sweet, salty, and addictive. It’s also vegan, if you’re into that sort of thing. I used maple…

Mini Pumpkin Oreo Cheesecakes with Cinnamon Whipped Cream

I have long thought I should start a support group for those of us who liked pumpkin before the Pumpkin Spice Latte. As a lifelong pumpkin lover I find it incredibly frustrating that all pumpkin things seem to now be pumpkin spice. These are not. Like my Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread, these mini cheesecakes are pure…
