Crimson Gold Mini Apple Pie Bites
Crimson Gold Mini Apple Pie Bites

There are few things as American as apple pie. It’s an old saying but a good one because pie really is the most American of American desserts. Although pie originated in Greece and was popular throughout Europe before the colonization of North America, the modern fruit-based pie we enjoy today is truly an American phenomenon. […]

The thought of coming up with adorable Halloween treats stresses me out. I am not a crafty person when it comes to food. Sure, I can make it look appetizing and taste delicious, but making it look like creatures of the netherworld is not my forté. For weeks I’ve been trying to come up with […]

Is it just me or does everyone else feel like a giant pumpkin patch sprouted up overnight on the internet, harvested itself and spit out recipes for pies, cakes, smoothies and lattés?

Friday Favorites: Very Berry Limoncello Trifle
Friday Favorites: Very Berry Limoncello Trifle

This Friday Favorite is a new recipe in our rolodex but after one bite, it was instant love. Berries are so abundant and fresh right now that I can’t help but keep a stock in the fridge. The problem with that is that I need to use them. We have been eating berries a lot […]

It’s the dog days of summer and in many places just darn hot out! These are the days that make us long for the cool breezes of autumn, boots and cozy sweaters… Well, maybe not quite yet. We can still squeeze a little more enjoyment out of the hot furnace air. We just need a […]

Summer berries are on the prowl and I can’t get enough of them. My father has raspberry bushes back in Indiana and I remember picking them as a child. My mother would make (and still does make) the most wonderful raspberry freezer jam from those fresh-picked berries and as a child I would pick the […]

Christmas Tree Meringues
Christmas Tree Meringues

If your family is anything like mine, Christmas is all about the food. To me, celebrating the holidays means rich savory dishes followed by decadent desserts. My mother’s family back in Indiana gathers at around 11:00 am for the all-day eat-a-thon which usually includes enough food to feed a small country. The soiree can go […]

Not Your Average Bake Sale…

What happens when you get 40+ food bloggers together and have a bake sale? A whole lotta magical goodness, that’s what! Last Saturday I had the incredible honor to participate with other food bloggers in San Diego to raise money for Share Our Strength. One in five children in the United States struggle with hunger […]

Valentine’s Day Vanilla Bean Cheesecake with Blackberry & Meyer Lemon Sauce

I hate to say it but I’m not much of a baker. That doesn’t mean I don’t love baked goods. I do… Probably too much, actually! I’ve just never felt the same inspiration with baking as I do with cooking. One of my resolutions this year is to explore and learn more about baking to […]
