3 Ways to Celebrate National Chocolate Souffle Day

Happy National “Most Delicious Day Ever,” also known as “National Chocolate Souffle Day.” The word ‘souffle’ comes from the French verb souffler, which means to “puff up” and describes a souffle perfectly. The base of egg yolks, beaten egg whites and French pastry cream make this a light and notoriously challenging dish that, when combined with other ingredients, can be either a savory dish or sweet dessert. But sorry cheese souffles, you have your own day (May 18th, to be exact). So today (just like every day, honestly) is all about the chocolate. You can celebrate by baking souffle, you can celebrate by eating souffle, you could celebrate by just saying “souffle” over and over because it’

If Medalists were Desserts, Part 2: Silver Edition

Last week we honored our US gold medal winners in the most appropriate way possible- discovering their true “Spirit Desserts.” For this next edition, we’re awarding our silver medal winners with the same honor. We’re sure they’re pretty content with just their medals but now they have two honors to hang their hats on. Nick Goepper (Silver medal, Men's Freestyle Skiing Slopestyle) This 23 year old freestyle skier hails from the state of Indiana, also known by its inhabitants (and the dictionary even) as the “Hossier State.” And what’s the official state pie of the Hossier State? The Hossier Pie, obviously. A rich, nutmeg-dusted custard pie, it’s also known as the Sugar Cream Pie, and also kno

Add a catchy title, a brief description and a beautiful image to the category page header. Here’s a tip: For easy navigation, it’s best to keep your category names short – 1 to 2 word titles.

Best Seasonal Cocktails: February Edition

It’s time for 2018’s second round of “Best Seasonal Cocktails.” So without further adieu, here are some healthy(ish) ways you can get your servings of fruits and vegetables in February. Beets Ginger Beet Martini: this ginger beet martini had us at “skill set: beginner,” but keeps us with the perfect apple, beet and ginger simple syrup combo. Bosc Pears Fresh Pear Cocktail: The emphasis here is on the “Bosc,” as it’s this particular pear that’s at its best in the winter. And while the pear is the star in this refreshing vodka cocktail, pomegranate, lime, and apple cider also win awards for best supporting cast mates. Oranges Orange Blossom Cocktail: Just thinking of orange blossoms makes me s

If Gold Medalists Were Desserts...

Today I’m going to talk about the world’s top athletes, with their stone cold determination and hard core strength, while I sit on the couch eating M&Ms and watching old Friends reruns. Sounds great and makes me feel super good about myself. We’re 8 days into the Winter Olympics and 5 incredibly talented athletes have broken out as the US gold medal winners. So as a tribute to these superstars, I’m highlighting desserts and/or/with booze that embody their true selves- forget “Spirit Animals,” here are their “Spirit Desserts.” Let’s just say if these five people were desserts, these are the desserts they’d be. Shaun White (Gold Medal, Men’s Halfpipe) With a nickname like “The Flying Tomato,”

7 Boozy Valentine’s Day Desserts for your SO, BFF, or U

Gifting baked goods for Valentine’s Day is an excellent (read: “cheaper”) idea for your significant other, your best friend, or just me, myself and I. So here are my 7 favorite Valentine’s Day treats (and some perfect Twisted Truffles counterparts) baked with booze, er, I mean love… although TBH sometimes they’re interchangeable and you know it. Bailey's Brownies Bailey’s in the brownies, Bailey’s on the brownies, Bailey’s in my face. And they would go perfectly with our Coffee Creme Liqueur cake ball. Sinner's Brownies Why these are called “Sinner’s Brownies” I do not know, because the raspberry liqueur makes these absolutely heavenly. Pink Champagne Cupcakes These cupcakes are bubbly and d

Mardi Gras: T-Minus 3 Days. You ready?

Celebrations for Mardi Gras started in New Orleans as early as the first week of January this year, so that means 1) I’m going to start looking at apartments in NOLA because they know how to party, and 2) I need to make up for lost time. Luckily I found some New Orleans-inspired boozy desserts to help me catch up as early as tonight. So here are some quite literal ways to make “Fat Tuesday” last past the one designated day. Mini Boozy King Cakes Lime flavored vodka and a candy surprise in the middle of these mini boozy King Cakes make them fit for a (piper, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and) a king. Bourbon Bread Pudding Bread pudding is a traditional New Orleans dessert and adding bour

Here’s How to Celebrate the Opening Ceremonies

The opening ceremonies for the 2018 Winter Olympics are this Friday, and while I think we can all agree that the Winter Olympics pale in comparison to the sunny Summer Olympics (yes, pun intended), that doesn’t mean we can’t find any reasons to celebrate the Ceremonies. For one, it’s a Friday. That’s cause for celebration in and of itself. And sure, it signifies a time where we can all come together to “experience one of the most universally recognized events and symbols of peace in the world.” So that’s something too...I guess. Regardless of the reason, it’s decided then- we’re celebrating. And whether you're going out or staying in, here's how you can too. Staying In? Here are some chilli

The Groundhog Day Cocktail (yes, it exists)

How does one of the most random of “holidays,” if we can even call it that, warrant its own custom cocktail? We’re literally handing over a meteorological forecast to a rodent just slightly more socially acceptable than a rat. So how is there now an actual “Groundhog Day Cocktail?” Bill Murray, that’s how. Or, to give credit where it’s truly due, Andie MacDowell. One of my favorite Bill Murray movies, “Groundhog Day” is 25 years old this year (yikes, it’s the age of someone who can rent a car). And when Andie MacDowell’s character Rita ordered “a glass of sweet vermouth with a twist,” she inadvertently created what has now been designated “The Groundhog Day Cocktail.” Thank you, Andie MacDow
