Sugarpova: Maria Sharapova’s New Candy Line is a Smash

On the court, “sweet” is not the first word we would choose to describe Maria Sharapova’s aggressive baseline style of play (ruthless, determined, and intimidating do come to mind). However, off the court, the bodacious blond tennis star has released Sugarpova, her new line of premium gummy candies that reflects Maria’s “fun, fashionable, sweet side.” […]

Bourbon Banana Puddings

Banana pudding sits high in the royal court of Southern desserts, and it doesn’t get much better than the classic recipe on the back of the Nilla wafer box. But sometimes it can’t hurt to experiment, and it’s not often difficult to find a line of folks ready and willing to try my latest spin. […]

Sifted: Stuffed Oreos, Boozy Pops and Crazy Compost Cookies

5 Hot Links We’re Loving: Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies are big in size and deliciousness. Picky Palate pulled a switcharoo and reduced the size (but not the flavor) with her warm baked chocolate chip cookie stuffed Oreos. Boozy ice pops are the perfect adult treat for a hot summer day. We’ll take one (or […]

Mix It Up: Breadcrumbs in Ice Cream

Your job as an ice cream maker is to make unforgettable flavors. By combining ingredients that are iconic, and retooling classic combinations, you arrive at ice cream that becomes the main event.

Philadelphia: A Dream Destination for Ice Cream Fans

No doubt about it; I’m an ice cream lover. But lately, there’s been two things weighing me down about it — and not just the actual pounds stemming from my five-scoop-a-week summer diet (hey, there’s been a heat wave around here): 1) It is nearly impossible to get a ‘small’ in New York City for […]

Vietnamese Ice Coffee Reinvented as Panna Cotta

This panna cotta is inspired by Vietnamese ice coffee, my favorite summer time drink. Take strong coffee, mix it with sweet condensed milk and pour over ice. I’ve taken those simple flavors and created an elegant, no-bake dessert. I like my panna cotta with as little gelatin as possible, just enough to keep it together. […]

Make Your Vanilla Ice Cream Pop with Striking Sauces

I can’t think of a better-suited end to a slow summer meal than an eye-popping ice cream sundae. Like summer itself, the best ice cream sundaes are about wild contrasts of taste, texture, temperature and flavor. Voluptuous vanilla bean — full and round. When it melts and relaxes on your palate it reveals notes of […]

Cookbook Giveaway: People’s Pops

In 2008 three friends living in Brooklyn –Nathalie Jordi, David Carrell and Joel Horowitz — had the idea of selling grown-up ice pops at a one-day event. Their artisanal frozen treats made with local, farm-fresh ingredients were such a hit that they decided to take it to the next level. They became regulars at the […]

Every time we view the trailer for the final film in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, we find ourselves in a dark and dangerous mood. And whenever we get in a dark and dangerous mood, there’s only one thing that will satisfy: deep, dark chocolate desserts. Just like the bat-signal, our cravings must […]
