On our flight back from Philadelphia two weeks ago, I found myself in a middle seat caught in a conversational crossfire between Lucas and the founder of HotorNot.com at the very moment I'd decided to get some dissertation writing done. If ever there was place to be a fly on the wall. After forcing Lucas to swap seats with me, I threw some instrumental music on my headphones to drown out their animated discussion.

No bake pumpkin cheesecake mousse http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/10/07/bake-pumpkin-cheesecake-mousse/ http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/10/07/bake-pumpkin-cheesecake-mousse/#comments Wed, 08 Oct 2014 05:50:52 +0000 http://www.snixykitchen.com/?p=7904 Pumpkin Cheesecake Mousse



This no bake pumpkin cheesecake mousse is a recipe for those of us in California wishing we could start celebrating fall desserts, but rejecting the oven in this wicked hot late summer. It's what you whip up when your air-conditioner-less house is already 80°F in the coolest hallway when you get out of bed at 9am on Saturday morning in October. This pumpkin dessert will still satisfy all your fall cravings with way less effort (and heat) than baking a pie with a fussy crust.

Lemon meringue s’mores with shortbread cookies http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/09/30/lemon-meringue-smores-with-shortbread-cookies/ http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/09/30/lemon-meringue-smores-with-shortbread-cookies/#comments Wed, 01 Oct 2014 05:28:13 +0000 http://www.snixykitchen.com/?p=7863 Meyer lemon s'mores



The open call for meyer lemon poachers still stands. No one has yet taken me up on the offer...except for the opossums who keep leaving mangled up lemons in the middle of our weed garden. I'm here to tempt you to come collect a basket of lemons by pulling out the blow torch to make these lemon meringue s'mores.

Homemade lemon meringue marshmallows http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/09/23/homemade-lemon-meringue-marshmallows/ http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/09/23/homemade-lemon-meringue-marshmallows/#comments Tue, 23 Sep 2014 08:47:41 +0000 http://www.snixykitchen.com/?p=7823 Lemon Meringue Marshmallows



When we moved into this house in March of last year, we discovered a blooming meyer lemon tree in the backyard. Without so much as a wave hello to the tree, it produced ripe fruit nearly 8 months of the year, starting as soon as we moved in. An impressive "welcome to the neighborhood" treat. This year, California produce seem to have gotten a bit confused.

Cherry Garcia cupcakes: Chocolate chip cupcakes with cherry frosting {gluten-free} http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/09/20/cherry-chocolate-chip-cupcakes/ http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/09/20/cherry-chocolate-chip-cupcakes/#comments Sat, 20 Sep 2014 08:00:16 +0000 http://www.snixykitchen.com/?p=7764 Cherry Garcia Cupcakes



Before you start screaming that I'm a month late and it's not cherry season anymore, just hear me out. Rather than juicy summer berries, these cupcakes get their tart cherry flavor from freeze-dried cherries folded into the frosting - available all year round! I picked up this freeze-dried berry frosting trick from my friend Maryanne (The Little Epicurean) - it's her smart way of infusing intense berry flavor into frosting without ending up with drippy soft icing that won't hold its shape.

(At the end of this post, sign up to win a prize pack of these dainty decorative cupcake liners!
