Blueberry Lemon Hand Pies

Blueberries have always been one of my favorite fruits.

My mom tells stories of me sitting in the blueberry patch as a child with my shirt covered in stains from all the blueberries I ate. Thus, it is no surprise that they are still one of my favorite parts of summer!

Every summer we always go blueberry picking, it’s a family tradition at this point. With so many blueberries, making blueberry pie was definitely one of the treats that was made.

Triple Chocolate Cookie Dough Ice Cream

I guess I was always bound to be an ice cream lover.

My great grandmother owned an ice cream parlor, which my grandmother grew up in. She always told my sister and I stories of growing up in the ice cream store, ones that I remember fondly.

Some of my great grandmothers ice cream glasses have been passed down and I am grateful to be able to use them in the photos in this post!

Lemon Oreo Tart

Have you ever tried lemon and chocolate together?

Until a few months ago, I did not think lemon and chocolate went well together. When anyone suggested this flavor combination to me, I would always tell them that those flavors don’t go well together. If you are thinking that as well, this recipe will change your perspective!

My boyfriend and I were ordering dessert in Portugal when we saw “lemon oreo thing’” as one of the dessert options. Intrigued, we ordered it along with another dessert since one dessert is obviously not enough to share.

When it came out it was essentially a lemon tart with an oreo cookie crust! I immediately dove in and was hooked. The creamy and tart lemony filling surprisingly went very well with the chocolate cookie crust. Ever since then, I have been determined to recreate this dessert.

S’mores Brownies

I am going back to my roots with these indulgent chocolate s’mores brownies.

I love all desserts (that’s an understatement!), but chocolate holds a special place in my heart.

Fruit desserts are lovely but when I am feeling down, all I want is a big bite of some chocolately goodness. This is what I have here!

With a graham cracker crust (with mini chocolate chips), fudgy brownie, and a layer of toasted marshmallows these brownies are sure to make you feel warm and fuzzy inside.

Strawberry Mascarpone Stack Cake

When thinking of desserts to make for Passover I came up with the traditional flourless chocolate cake. Cheesecake also came to mind (it was fabulous!), but I had been thinking about a meringue dessert and wanted to try something new.

I thought that I could do meringue cookies with cream and fruit, or I could try a meringue stack cake. The second option was definitely more adventurous, so that’s what I chose.

This Strawberry Mascarpone Stack Cake is the perfect dessert for strawberry season and happens to be gluten free!
