Ganache-Stuffed Chocolate-Chip Cookies

A stuffed cookie is like a sandwich cookie, only with more cream on the inside - it's fatter, fuller and (if you're the kind of person who twists apart the cookies to get to the cream) better.

Warm Double-Chocolate Brownie Cakes

Brownie meets cake in this fun dessert. The batter is poured into muffin cups so the edges turn crispy and chewy like a brownie, but the inside becomes soft and fluffy like a cake.

The Modern Martini

This lime-and-cilantro-infused cocktail will appeal to both Gimlet and Martini drinkers. We like to use Tanqueray for its strong juniper and spice profile.

Farm Girl Cosmo

Serve a batch of these drinks, whose secret ingredient is a rosy syrup made from rhubarb. The cosmopolitan is thought to have been created by Neal Murray at the Cork & Cleaver steakhouse in 1975 Minneapolis, from whence it traveled to the fern bars of San Francisco and on to bigger fame after that. For a wonderful color contrast in the garnish, choose a stalk of rhubarb with a greenish cast.

Mini Molten Chocolate Cakes with Mocha Sauce

Some molten-cake recipes call for simply underbaking the batter so the middles stay lava-like, but mini cakes get done so quickly it's best to give them a filling that won't set up. These rich, mocha-flavored morsels are guaranteed to stay moist and gooey, owing to a simple mocha ganache in the middle.

Tangerine and Prosecco Sorbet

This light, pretty dessert can be made up to three days ahead.

Spicy Pineapple Margarita

This is one rocking cocktail due to Lottie’s yellow hot sauce, which is pure Barbadian flavor--slow burn, lots of heat, and the fresh ringing flavor of Scotch bonnets. Years ago, Lottie bottled her sauce in soda bottles, then flask bottles, whereas today her sauce is found in the standard 5-ounce bottle. As the folks at Mo Hotta Mo Betta once said, “If we had a dollar for every time someone suggested we carry Lottie’s hot pepper sauce, we would’ve had enough money to fly to Barbados and bring it back by the case.” Nice work if you can get it.
