That Strawberry Rhubarb…

   Confession: I have never had rhubarb…well, at least I don’t think I have, haha. But when you’re friend asks for a Strawberry Rhubarb Pie for their birthday, well, you suck it up and make it. Especially when their birthday was 7 months ago…(yes, I suck as a friend).  Thankfully Whole Foods had fresh rhubarb…

Cherry Pie…Valentine’s Edition

This is the first Cherry Pie that I’ve made. It’s one of the most classic and popular pies yet I have had my reservations about it for some reason. Yet I thought it would be the perfect pie for our Valentine’s Potluck at work. Every time there’s a potluck at work I already know what…

Raspberry Linzer Tart

I originally planned on making this tart during the holidays since Linzer cookies are quite popular around the holidays. It’s actually quite simple to make. This could be a good tart to make for Valentine’s Day. You could be super cheeseball and use a heart shaped cookie cutter for the top crust. Just place the…

Chocolate & Cookiebutter Tart

It’s been a minute since my last post but this one is worth the wait. This is the perfect tart for those random ingredients leftover from the holidays. The original recipe was just a chocolate truffle tart. I had a jar of cookie butter that I received in a gift basket at work for Christmas….

Raspberry Galette

When my original plan failed…welllp…this was the backup. This Galette is super simple and delicious.     For the dough 1/4 cup sour cream 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice 1/4 cup cold water 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 Tsp salt 1/2 cup well chilled butter For the filling 2 tablespoons raspberry jam 2 packages…

Apple Cider Cheesecake Pie

Fall=baking with apples. Yet there are only so many “apple pies” that can be made before I get a bit bored with it all. I stumbled across this recipe on Food52, which is where I basically spend countless hours of my life each week, lol. Anywho, I haven’t made a cheesecake in years and I…

Pumpkin Pie Layer Cake

Recently I have not been much of a pumpkin pie fan. I do love pumpkin but the traditional pie is a bit of a bore for me. This time around I decided to make something a bit different. Being that i am a fan of naked layer cakes I figured I would give this a shot….

Bourbon Brown Butter Apple Deep Dish Pie

Could I have a longer name for a pie? haha. But seriously, this thing was pretty fantastic. As we celebrated one of my friends birthdays last night, I figured this would be one a good time to try this thing out. To be completely honest, I was quite a bit nervous. I had this fear…

Leftover Bourbon Brown Butter Apple Crumble

Yesterday I made some Bourbon Brown Butter Hand Pies. Now, my mom decided to help me with cutting the apples and cut too many apples. I didn’t have more pie dough and I couldn’t be bothered to make something completely new so I decided to make an Apple Crisp with the remaining filling. And I…

Apple and Bourbon Brown Butter Hand Pies

I love all of this fall produce. There are so many things on my list to bake, it’s hard to figure out what to make first. I came across this recipe in a new magazine called, ‘Bake from Scratch’. I modified it a bit by adding bourbon to the brown butter filling because I love…

Apple Tart Normande (or something like it)

I almost didn’t bake this week. It’s been quite exhausting. Yet, I got a bit restless today, and well here it is. I came across this recipe whilst reading ‘The World on a Plate’ by Mina Holland. This book is practically my dream but thats a totally different story. As apples are at their prime,…

Pumpkin Pie Crumble

I finally made a Pumpkin Pie….well, an adaptation of a Pumpkin Pie. To be completely honest, I’ve been a bit put off by all the “Pumpkin” flavored everything all throughout the stores. I love actual pumpkin but all this fake crap gets on my nerves a bit. But, when your mother who is about to…
