Holidays

Mini Pumpkin Pies

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I recently had the dilemma of transporting several pies to a holiday party and lo and behold 7 of said pies had apparently experienced a bit of turbulence and their delicate flaky crusts had crumbled.  The silver lining here was that I was able to hoard the buttery bits for myself, done in the spirit […]

If you can master this simple technique, the options are endless when it comes to tailor-making gravy with a personalized touch for Thanksgiving supper {or anything that requires gravy–can that be everything, please?}  I love playing around with this depending on what mood strikes.  This can range from anything from thyme to cognac {my personal […]

No-Bake Pumpkin Pie

I love pumpkin pie but faced with the prospect of baking several pies in a few weeks on top of Thanksgiving supper, I figured I’d whip up a no-bake version for myself when the craving was fierce but the effort must be kept to a minimum. Cue this layered custardy treat that involves no baking […]

No-Bake Caramel Corn

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love caramel corn.  I love how it can be buttery, crunchy, sweet, sticky, and salty all at once.  However, I don’t enjoy having to babysit it.  Constantly checking up on it and stirring is not my idea of a good time, especially since said caramel corn doesn’t even pay minimum wage. This recipe is […]

Gummy Worms

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These are so realistic that my in-house taste tester {J} nearly refused to try these.  I lay them on a bed of crushed oreos, spilling out of a tin can and when I jiggled the plate, they almost slithered!  Though after the initial hesitation, J more than happily wiggled each gummy worm into his mouth, […]

The weather here is deceptively warm yet, it’s too cold to go into the water anymore which only reminds me that summer is really gone *sigh* #firstworldproblems so when my neighbor approached me this weekend with a fun halloween project, I jumped at the chance to whip up these velvet cupcakes with a spooky halloween […]

Apple Pie Baked Apples

Apple pie baked right into an apple complete with warm gooey filling and flaky lattice crust.  This video also happens to feature my favorite pastry crust as well.  It’s practically fool-proof and yields a light, buttery, and flaky crust each and every time.             5.0 from 4 reviews Apple Pie […]

Happy first day of autumn!  I’m celebrating with pecan bars, what about you?  These delectable bites are sticky and gooey with toasted pecans and sit on a buttery and crumbly shortbread crust that make yummy little cookies on their own, too.           5.0 from 5 reviews Pecan Bars   Save Print […]
