Oreo Chocolate Swiss Roll

In my line of work, we see celebrities about as often as you’d see signs of illicit inebriation in a college frat house.

I’ve chatted with Jeff Goldblum about running marathons in a unicorn onesie; run into Jon Favreau ordering a grande whatsit at Starbucks downstairs; watched Emilia Clarke recite quippy marketing one-liners that I’d written for her latest film promotion; … Read more

I’m sorry, Ms. Jackson…These cookies are for real.

It’s very rare in our household that a new dessert becomes an instant Wallflour Boy hit. Unlike me, he prefers 2000s hip hop hits to 90s bubblegum pop and savory foods over sweet treats. There are, however, a few notable exceptions: French apple pie, cheesecake, and anything … Read more

Easy decadence meets springtime in this Orange Curd Cheesecake Coffee Crumb Cake. Indulgent with a tangy twist, this dessert features a feather-light coffee cake and a creamy cheesecake layer topped with bright notes of citrus and softly-spiced brown sugar crumbs.
