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…

Chocolate Chunk Cookie Pie

This is one of those desserts that’s so simple, you almost feel bad about serving it when company’s over but then you take a bite and think, why am I not baking this all the time? It’s so much easier than baking cookies. I whipped this up at the lake house last night and certainly didn’t plan…

Bourbon Whipped Cream

I’m a big fan of bourbon. I’m Southern like that. A couple of weeks ago I was inspired to toss some into my whipped cream and was blown away. I could have eaten this whole bowl! The powdered sugar in whipped acts as a stabilizer, so you can keep this in the fridge for two days…

Blackberry Brownie Trifle

I think we can all agree that everything tastes better in a mason jar. For The Rose Table en Blanc, I wanted something that was easily portable and that could be served chilled. Mini Blackberry Brownie Trifles were the perfect solution! I hope you love this as much as my guests and I did. Photography…

Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut-Almond Butter Frosting

And the Oscar for most delightful cupcake goes to… DARK CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES WITH PEANUT-ALMOND BUTTER FROSTING! I wanted something special to nosh on during the Academy Awards so I decided to bake cupcakes. I don’t bake them very often so it was quite the treat. I prefer dark chocolate to milk and didn’t have enough peanut butter…

Festive Fiori di Sicilia Cranberry Cake

If there is a cake that screams Christmas louder than this one, I would love to taste it. You can practically hear it merrily caroling from its antique cake stand! The cranberries are snowy and festive and incredibly easy to make. (Though you do need to make them the night before so plan ahead.) The sugar…

Easy Maple Walnut Nut

    I want to take a moment to say thank you to my wonderful readers who have absolutely made my Christmas Eve by sending me photos of the goodies they baked using recipes from The Rose Table. I am thrilled and honored to be part of your Christmas festivities. Seeing your posts has really been…
