Gary Hodges Photo This week my family and I are on staycation, so posts might be sporadic. But I couldn’t resist sharing this birthday parfait for one of my best and most tea-lovingest friends.

Vegan Chocolate Mousse Demitasse

Vegan Chocolate Mousse Demitasse

This Chocolate Friday I am not messing around. What you see above in the puffy cloud of goodness and everything that’s just in this world is Post Punk Kitchen’s* vegan chocolate mousse — topped with a layer of chopped salted pistachios and a raspberry.

Excited about the blog, she suggested that her cake, which consisted of layers of brownie, ice cream, whipped cream, Oreo frosting, and ice cream sandwiches, would count as a parfait. And though … Continue reading

S’more Parfait Please

S’more Parfait Please

Delicious Failure Because it’s Chocolate Friday and it’s summer (although, heck, any season is great for lighting marshmallows on fire), I give you the obligatory s’more parfait. However, since I’ve tried to make this thing look pretty — twice — and botched it — twice — I’m offering you two versions, each one less attractive than the other. … Continue reading
