Fresh Figs with Coconut Milk and Walnuts

By Ashley | Dessert , Recipes

This is a 3 ingredient snack or dessert that you can make in a minute. Really, it would be cheating to call it a recipe. However, I have to share it! When fig season comes around I always snack on these little gems like popcorn. I also try to incorporate them in every dish I can. Whether it’s a goat cheese, fig, and arugula pizza, or sliced on top of pancakes, figs make food better. […]

There is something about vanilla ice cream, especially in the summer, that just makes everything better.

Pumpkin Pie Cookies

By Ashley | Dessert , Recipes

It’s no secret that I have an addiction to anything pumpkin. Not only do I adore the subtlety sweet flavor, but it adds a wonderful moistness to bake goods.

To make these babies even more indulgent I created a mascarpone brown sugar buttercream to strike the perfect balance between gooey cookie and rich, creamy frosting. If […]

Pumpkin Mousse Tartlets

By Ashley | Dessert , Recipes

A lot of times, nothing beats a simple recipe. All you need is a few ingredients and 20 minutes and you can create something simply spectacular. I was inspired by the raw (meaning unpasteurized) lusciously thick cream I had. I wanted to highlight this high-quality ingredient rather than let it get lost with a bunch of other ingredients. My sweet tooth told me pumpkin and honey would perfectly complement the cream, and my sweet tooth […]
