Homemade Pumpkin Cornbread

Homemade Pumpkin Cornbread

There was a point in time where one of the only places you saw pumpkin was in pumpkin pie, but those days are long gone. Pumpkin – and pumpkin pie spice, of course – is all over the place during the fall, in desserts, savory dishes and even in coffee drinks. My Homemade Pumpkin Cornbread is just one of many delicious ways to use pumpkin ... Read More »

Vanilla Pretzel Butter Cookies ( & a Giveaway!)

Vanilla Pretzel Butter Cookies

The holidays are a time of the year that is always filled with cookies for my family. Everyone bakes them and everyone brings them when we get together for gatherings. My grandmother always had one type of cookie that was storebought and, even with a wealth of homemade cookies to choose from, I often chose to eat a few of those before touching any of ...

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie

I get lots of requests for gluten free pie recipes around the holidays.

Gluten Free Vanilla Hazelnut Crumb Crust

Gluten Free Hazelnut Crumb Crust

I’ve tried many gluten free pie crusts over the last few years and some are much more successful than others.

The sweet-tart berries have a flavor that tastes great in everything from homemade cranberry sauce to cranberry muffins, and a bright red color that makes baked goods look unusually festive. ...

Bourbon Butterscotch Cream Pie

Bourbon Butterscotch Cream Pie

A cream pie is essentially a type of pudding served in a pie crust, usually topped with a whipped cream or meringue topping. They can come in any flavor and there are some really delicious cream pies out there – including Coconut Cream Pie and Chocolate Cream Pie – but they don’t always get the same attention as fruit pies. Cream pies can be amazing, ... Read More »

Individual Pumpkin Pies

Individual Pumpkin Pies

A freshly baked pumpkin pie is one of the most perfect desserts you can slice into during the fall. The sweet flavor of pumpkin, combined with warm spices and brown sugar in a smooth custard is just delicious – especially if you have family and friends to share it with. A pumpkin pie demands to be shared and, as a result, many of us wait ... Read More »

Mini Cherry Swirl Cheesecakes

Mini Cherry Swirl Cheesecakes

My favorite cheesecakes are usually mini cheesecakes. It’s not that I don’t enjoy a big, rich slice of a full sized cheesecake every now and then, but I find that I get a better crust-to-filling ratio with mini cheesecakes. Mini cheesecakes are also quick to bake and easy to serve, so they’re a much better choice for spur-of-the-moment baking than full sized cheesecakes are. These ... Read More »
