Coconut White Chocolate Macadamia Tart

How many syllables can I put into a post title? Smh, its ridiculous, haha. I thought I would add a recipe that wasn’t so “fall-ish” just to switch things up. Anyways, I made this tart around my mom’s birthday. As she is a lover of all things coconut and white chocolate, I thought I would…

As American As Apple Pie…

I recently got the spiralizer attachment for my kitchen-aid mixer. One of the splendid things you can do is peel, core and slice apples in the fraction of the time it takes to do it by hand. It’s seriously worth the price simply for that. And we’ve had zucchini noodles for days as well…but that’s…

Croissants

I made croissants!!! Being that a little over a year ago I did not consider myself a baker, I must say that I am pretty damn proud of myself. This was the first time I made croissants by myself. One of my old roommates from Nashville and I gave these a shot a couple of…

Boeuf Bourguignon Pot Pie

Now for a savory pie. This is a bit of a twist to a classic french dish that I love. Meat pies are more of a commonwealth thing. Americans aren’t all that accustomed to meat pies. I lived in Australia for a year and when you ask them if they want pie the usually think…

Plum Galette

Yet again, another Plum recipe…I would apologize but I’m really not sorry. As you should know, i absolutely LOVE baking with plums. Since the season is soon to an end, I need to make as many things as possible. Being that I had some plums around the house I wanted to bake something but I…

Pickled Strawberry Lemon Cake

As you should know, I am obsessed with Christina Tosi and her majestic baking skills. I don’t remember how I came across this recipe but I knew that I absolutely had to make it. This cake does require a bit of effort but it is completely worth it. Be sure the get the best strawberries…

My FAVORITE Pie

The very first pie I ever made from scratch was a Plum & Raspberry Pie. Although that first one was more of an experiment more than anything, I do find myself craving this pie from time to time. Now let me explain something, I am not the biggest dessert fan. I absolutely love baking but…

Pumpkin Pecan Tart

Confession: I’m obsessed with Martha Stewart. It’s actually more of a love/hate relationship. She irritates me at times yet I can’t stop watching her. I am also an avid PBS watcher, just call me grandma. Every Saturday I watch Martha on PBS and most times it makes me want to get in the kitchen to…

Cannoli Tart

Well, hello there. It’s been a hot minute since my last post and I do hope that you have not completely forgotten me. Now it is time to play a bit of catch up. This pie is cannoli inspired. I appreciate a well made cannoli. I love the cream inside the crispy shell with bits…

More than Pie….

May 3rd 2015- I made my first pie from scratch.   That’s where the obsession began. But for me, its more that just baking. It has been a sort of therapy through one my of the most difficult years. It all started with plums. My mom had visited her one of her brothers in California….

Strawberry Lime Mascarpone Tart

I was inspired by a tart that I had from Harrod’s food hall on my recent trip to London. I kept waling around all the glorious food displays yet this strawberry tart kept catching my eye. So after my dim sum lunch, I went and got a slice of pie. I got it for take…

Birthday Cake

My birthday was this past Thursday. I’m not really the biggest fan of cake but there was one cake that has been tugging at my heart to make for quite a while. As you may know, I’m slightly obsessed with Christina Tosi and all her fabulous creations. Her “Birthday Cake” has been on my list…
