Strawberry Fool

This is one of those dishes that you take a bite of and wonder why the hell you haven’t been making this all along.     Make this when you have really great, juicy strawberries. Just toss a cup of washed and hulled strawberries in a blender with a tablespoon of sugar and fold that…

Bourbon Whipped Cream

Great on brownies, ice cream sundaes, pie, and more! Whipped cream is kind of my thing. I’m German like that. When I was a teenager, we were out of granulated sugar so I used powdered sugar to sweeten whipped cream. I whipped too much and stuck the leftovers in the fridge. Much to me and…

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…

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…

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…

The Best Homemade Hot Cocoa

I’m a hot cocoa snob. (This probably won’t come as much of a surprise.) I don’t bother with most store bought hot cocoa mixes because they don’t hold a candle to homemade hot cocoa. This quick recipe, though, does not disappoint especially with homemade whipped cream. The Best Homemade Hot Cocoa (Serves three.) 1/3 cup granulated…

Strawberries & Cookies in Warm Dark Chocolate Toffee Sauce

I’m having a love affair with toffee sauce all because I bought the Stonewall Kitchen variety on accident. I thought I grabbed two of their Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Sauce. (If you haven’t tried it, you must), and was a little disappointed when I got home and realized I had grabbed a Dark Chocolate…

Ingredient Spotlight: Fiori di Sicilia

If you want to transform recipes with one easy ingredient swap, Fiori di Sicillia is for you. The perfect combination of orange and vanilla, fiori di sicillia can be swapped out for vanilla extract when you’re feeling adventurous. (Note: A 1/2 teaspoon goes as far as 1 teaspoon of regular vanilla.) I love to add a…
