I am so, so excited for my sweet friend Shaina. Her brand new, super adorable cookbook just came out yesterday! It’s Desserts in Jars: 50 Sweet Treats that Shine. Fifty recipes, all completely dedicated to desserts, and all in cute little jars. I’m in love.
Back in October, when Shaina was in the midst of baking multiple desserts a day to photograph for her book, I was lucky enough to convince her to come stay with me for a weekend so I could “help.” :) And by that, you know I totally mean “taste test all those fabulous desserts!!” :) We had such a fun, much-too-short weekend goofing off in the kitchen, staying up way too late gabbing, and indulging in some of the most delicious desserts I’ve ever tasted. All in all, we ended up baking up a grand total of 11 desserts all in two short days! :)
After baking, we’d head to the scrapbook room and pick out props and backgrounds for the photo shoot.
Then style it and take it outside for a photo! :)
This beauty is Shaina’s Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Pots de Creme (page 77). So incredibly good!
Another one we did were these Tres Leches Cakes. So cute! I keep looking at the photo in the book (page 20) and thinking, That’s my backyard! That’s my spoon! I’ve made scrapbook pages with that paper! Lol :)
Morning lighting setup in my kitchen :)
And this. This was my favorite. This was life changing.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Parfaits, page 88. Make this first. So dangerously delicious!!
You know I saved the best for last! :) How cute are these Macarons in a Jar?? Page 63.
I am absolutely in love with french macarons and this was my first time making them. It was such a breeze with Shaina’s foolproof recipe! They are so cute and fun to make. So many fun flavor combinations to choose from! I seriously want to travel around and have macaron making parties now. Who’s in?? :)

The one that appealed to me the most was the Chocolate Hazelnut Pots de Creme. I hope I win! Love your blog!!:)

Oh my goodness, asking me to pick a favorite dessert is a question that simply cannot be answered. Apple pie. Any kind of pie really. Cookies. Cupcakes. Banana bread. Brownies. Give them all to me!
Grasshopper Pie!! My second favorite in the summer would be a peach crumble and third would be strawberry shortcake with chocolate chips….can you tell I love sweets(a little too much:)!
Can you tell me what reflector you used to take these gorgeous photos? I’m in the market for one and was wondering what you use/like. Thanks!
I missed the giveaway deadline, but I still wanted to comment. I love this post and will definitely be getting the cookbook. Everything is SO CUTE, and looks delicious. Really enjoyed seeing the “behind the scenes” photos :)
Homemade Rocky Road Brownies!! The Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Pots de Creme from this cookbook look amazing. :)
SO hard to choose just one, but if I’m honest, I’ll always be true to the good ol’ basic – brownies.
Right now, cupcakes. Just about any kind, as long as it’s piled high with frosting. LOL
The book looks great, and like another poster said, I too enjoyed seeing your photo “setup”.

Coconut Cream Pie! And now I need some, immediately.
Tiramasu is my fave!
I have to say the Tres Leches dessert – my son loves this cake.

My favorite dessert would probably be something with coconut; although, I love ice cream, too! My husband said he likes to think that I like all desserts equally, which certainly isn’t true, because I hate raspberries. They taste like dirt to me.

So many to choose from…..but I’d have to vote for a really good chocolate cake (real cake, not flourless nonsense) with chocolate icing.
These are adorable! My favorite dessert (right now) is a chocolate pot de creme!

Pie! Rhubarb pie and cherry pie are my favorites! :)
I can’t decide between apple crisp and or just ice cream. Those desserts in a jar look absolutely delicious!
ANYTHING cheesecake… Original, cherry, no-bake, cheesecake ice cream, etc. YUM! I can go on forever!
I’m such a fan of apple pie! (Or any pie to be honest!) :)
I don’t know if I can pick just one, but I’ll go with a Chocolate Malted Shake!
My favorite dessert would have to be molten lava cake. I love tiramisu (sp?), but I’m a sucker for deep, rich chocolate and a molten lava cake satisfies those requirements!
What a cute book!
My favorite dessert? Hands down, French macarons. Fell in love with them in NOLA after your suggestion to try Sucre’s macarons. To die for. Will be there again in September and can’t wait!!
How fun! My favorite dessert is a blackberry cobbler with french vanilla ice cream. It’s a favorite because of the memories of blackberry picking and cobbler making with my grandparents that I relive every time I eat some blackberry cobbler.
Hands down, strawberry shortcake. I can’t quit eating once I start!
Oh that’s a tough one! I think right now it would have to be peach cobbler. :)
I’m a chocolate girl, so probably brownie sundaes with hot fudge. This book looks adorable! I would love that hazelnut dessert right now!
If I had to pick one thing, I’d pick cheesecake. However, I love anything with coconut.
beautiful book! Anything chocolate is my favorite dessert!
What a totally fun idea! I love it. And what a fun way to spend a weekend.
Chocolate pie with a graham cracker crust. Yummo!
chocolate shake for sure!
I love classic brownies with walnuts.
I agree with some of the other comments; there is no way I could choose just one favorite dessert! But… ’tis the season for pie! Preferably blueberry or raspberry.
I would probably say chocolate chip cookies. = )
What a great book idea!!! Would love to know that fool-proof recipe!
Really good chocolate cake :)
Decide? I’m sorry. It would be easier to tell you what I DON’T like…by way of desserts. Right now…this very minute…I would pick a fresh strawberry shortcake. With whip, of course. =)
My favorite dessert is homemade vanilla ice cream. I’d like to make those macarons.
My favorite dessert is banana pudding or lemon cake! Yum!
This book is right up my alley! I’m loving anything chocolate and caramel at the moment. Thanks!
My favorite is Strawberry Cheese Cake.
Chocolate or anything ice cream! Would love to get my hands on that book!
My favorite dessert is going to be those macaroons in a jar! I LOVE macaroons!
Peach Pie… fresh of course! Just slightly warmed with real whip cream. PERFECT!
My favorite dessert is a cupcake… or two.
My favorite would have to be Tiramisu (especially from one particular restaurant in Iowa.)
Chocolate chip cookie bars or brownies with a middle layer of mint and a hard chocolate top layer are hard to pass up.
Coconut cream pie!! YUM!!!!
