There are a lot of things to look forward to when fall rolls in: cooler days, back to school and sports are just a few.

It’s pretty difficult for me to pick a favorite dessert, but if I must choose one, it’s cheesecake. The soft crumb crust combined with smooth, creamy cheese is always a welcome indulgence. There are endless flavor offerings, too: strawberry, raspberry, key lime, pumpkin, chocolate, toffee, mocha…OK, I’ll stop with the word list and start with the pretty pictures. In case you didn’t know, National Cheesecake Day falls on July 30th. To celebrate this amazingly versatile dessert on its special day, I’ve gathered up 30 delicious cheesecake recipes. Let the cheesecake cravings commence.
Crumbled cake mixed with icing or chocolate gives us one sweet treat: the cake pop. This deliciousness on a stick has so many flavor and design possibilities – every time we think we’ve seen it all, a cool new design grabs our attention. If you’ve never tried making cake pops before, I have just the video to get you started along with plenty of fun, colorful, tasty ideas!

The lessons will cover everything you need to know from proper batter preparation and hand piping techniques to filling your macaron shells. I attended this class and learned great tips and techniques. Now I’m macaron-obsessed and want to try every color and filling that I could possibly make!
We’ve gathered up some of our favorite summer treats: perfect pineapples, wonderful watermelons and fantastic flamingos! These three icons are super hot this summer. If you’re looking for them in edible form, check out these adorable and delish desserts.
I have always been fascinated by wine pairings. When I started culinary school, one of the first things I did was sign up for a Wine and Gastronomy class (and not just because the class went to France, although that didn’t hurt!). The fact that certain wines can enhance your food is, to me, just marvelous. So when given the chance to combine two of my favorite things- wine and dessert- I was thrilled.
So I’ve been told… the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach! With Father’s Day coming up, there is no better way to tell dad you appreciate him than with some homemade sweet treats! Check out these 4 Fantastic Father’s Day Treats.
