Cinnamon Plum Crumble. I love how it sounds. I love how it tastes. It’s the kind of dessert I prepare ahead of time, before my guests arrive, and hide away in the fridge until dinner is finished. We’re usually too full to sit down to dessert right away. So I’ll pop this into the oven […]

Galettes are just a lazy, rustic pie, and there’s nothing wrong with it. In fact, they are imperfectly perfect in their own way. And they’re French. So when I say ‘lazy’ I really mean ‘chic.’ It’s full on strawberry season right now (another form of pure heaven) and I’ve been baking a lot of things […]

Baked Rice Pudding

I really have a thing for single layer cakes. I think they’re charming and less busy than a layered, fully-frosted-all-over cake. Honestly, I don’t always have time for an extended ordeal and just need a simple and elegant dessert. And this is it! It has a hint of delicate rose water and a cream cheese […]
