Silicone Cranberry Ring Mold

Silicone Cranberry Ring Mold

My grandmother had a set of molded Tupperware containers that she used to make a variety of Jell-O salad dishes around the holidays. They were a colorful presence on the holiday table and the intricate designs of those molds always looked lovely – even if the various salads weren’t exactly the stars of the table (in fairness, some were much tastier than others).

Bite Size Salted Caramel Pecan Pies

Bite Size Salted Caramel Pecan Pies

Most pecan pies have a gooey, syrupy center that lacks flavor because they are made with corn syrup. This syrup gives the pies a smooth texture, but I prefer to use things like maple syrup and honey because they give the finished pie a lot more flavor than corn syrup would and they showcase the pecans wonderfully. I’m a big salted caramel fna and it ... Read More »

Brûléed Pumpkin Pie

Brulee Pumpkin Pie

Creme brûlées are a dessert that never goes out of style. The silky custard is rich and satisfying, but it is that crackly, caramelized top that keeps people ordering it again and again. Creme brûlées aren’t the only dessert where you can brûlée the top and that same caramel layer can instantly elevate other desserts as well. This Brûléed Pumpkin Pie is the perfect example, ...

Williams Sonoma Pie Basket

Pie Basket

Pies are one of the top holiday desserts out there and that means that you are probably going to be transporting pies to various events this holiday season. I know that I often bring pies to holiday parties and get-togethers. Pies are difficult to transport because pie plates tend to be very slippery and the pies themselves tend to be delicate. I can’t count how ... Read More »
