An ice cream float with whiskey? YES! The Whiskey Root Beer Float is becoming increasingly popular, and for good reason. It's astonishingly delicious, and my husband and I highly recommend it for your happy hour joy.

For the love
of chocolate...
and coffee!

Most culinary experts agree that chocolate and coffee are a perfect match. The reason? Both are made from roasted beans, so when you add coffee to chocolate desserts, it enhances that deep roasted flavor, making the chocolate taste richer and more intense. That’s one reason why Kahlua brownies are so popular. The other is the "spirit" of the rum in the sweet coffee liqueur, which brings the party with the flavor.

Unfortunately, retaining that flavor is tricky. Many recipes instruct you to add Kahlua to your batter, but during the baking, much of the taste and spirits are cooked away. Today’s easy recipe shares how Marc and I make our Kahlua brownies. Here's a hint. We were inspired by the affogato...



Affogato, which means "drowned" in Italian, is a deliciously easy dessert in which Italians simply pour a shot or two of hot espresso (or strongly brewed coffee) over a scoop or two of gelato or ice cream.

How to Make Perfect Pâte Sucrée - Sweet Shortcrust Pasty for Tarts and Pies by Cleo Coyle

Print Friendly and PDF

While you can purchase pre-made pie dough and frozen pie shells at your local grocery, there is one major problem with them: They are not sweet crusts. Sweet crusts are needed for many wonderful dessert recipes, including a few of my favorite tarts and pies--the recipes for which I'll be posting here in the near future. And that's why I'm starting with this basic post on how to make a classic French pâte sucrĂ©e or "sweet dough."

How to make TWINKIE RUM BABA from ONCE UPON A GRIND by Cleo Coyle

The rum baba is basically a yeast or sponge cake fortified with an easy-to-make rum syrup. I grew up with an Italian version that included pastry cream in the center. That's why the Twinkie makes a great shortcut to a festive dessert, and a fun conversation piece for holiday trays.

Of course, you don't have to use Twinkies. You can always substitute thick slices of pound cake, brioche, or even challah. But don't skip the whipped cream, it's a must for full enjoyment of this dessert.
