This was my first whack at homemade dog biscuits. I honestly don’t know why I waited so long to try this at home. They were so easy.
OK, so have you guys heard about the cronut? This croissant-donut hybrid has been taking the interwebs by storm over the last few weeks. Created by pastry chef Dominique Ansel of the eponymous New York City bakery, this morsel has gotten so much attention that Ansel went out and trademarked the name. That’s Ansel behind […]
OK, so you guys know me: I’m all about butter, heavy cream, meat, and bacon. But ever since I wrote my ice cream cookbook, Slushed!, people have been asking me about making vegan ice cream. Which is technically a contradiction in terms. Considering ice cream is generally all milk, cream, and eggs, this was definitely […]
This ain’t your grandma’s apple pie. I baked it in a cheesecake pan, for a towering 3-inches of apple-pie goodness.

Fall’s officially here, let the baking begin! Apple and cranberry is such a classic New England combo when it comes to Autumn desserts. This cake gets a double apple punch from fresh apple cider and sliced apples. We always hit Brooksby Farm a couple of times a year to go apple picking. (If you live […]
So we’re still totally stoked about our feature month in this month’s O, The Oprah Magazine. (Holy cow, right??) We wanted to share the love, so we’re giving a bunch of delicious stuff away during August! First up is a box of gourmet sugars by the fabulous Chambre de Sucre. I’ll admit it: I’ve been […]
This is a summer standby at The Mouse House. (Warning: This cake is not bikini friendly.) It’s dark, dense, and fudge-y, and is the perfect foil for everything from ice cream to fresh berries. I like to slice it in half and fill it with whipped chocolate ganache. (Hello, heaven!) The best part about this […]
