Lemon Buttermilk Pie with Blueberry Compote

Lemon Buttermilk Pie with Blueberry Compote

I’ve really grown to dislike “stuff”. I hate clutter and though my house isn’t always clean, it’s usually “picked up” pretty well. I live in a small space so it doesn’t take much to look like a disaster zone. The single category of “stuff” I hoard, however, is recipes. I’ve had this pie in...

Salty Honey Pie

Salty Honey Pie

My mom can be a bit of a contrarian – especially when it comes to technology. She staunchly believes that it’s out to get her and that the old way is almost always better. Case and point, I can talk about her on my blog because she seldom reads it (since it’s on the...

Apple Pie

Apple Pie

This past Sunday evening I cooked dinner for several college football players – boys my husband coached when they were in high school. These guys were “strapping” to say the least. I was excited to make a ridiculously unhealthy but delicious dinner and watch every bite disappear (I hid in the kitchen most of...

Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Mini-Pies

Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Mini-Pies

These strawberry mini-pies were one of my favorite recipes of late and their poptart similarities made me excited to create a brown sugar and cinnamon version, since that is by FAR the best poptart (the glazed version, that is). With a few simple tweaks I had two-bite sized treats that work as well for...

Coconut Cream Pie

Coconut Cream Pie

Pie is the best. It’s one of my favorite things to make and though I started in my mom’s kitchen with apple and pumpkin, I’ve come to enjoy all kinds. Truly, when it comes to pie I don’t discriminate. This was my first experience making a coconut cream pie and only the second one...

Strawberry Pie-lets

Strawberry Pie-lets

Blogging about food (I really dislike the word blogging, not gonna lie) is a lot like any creative venture – sometimes I’m bursting with recipes and ideas and everything I make seems to turn out exactly as I’d hoped. Other times, though, my brain is as dry as the Sahara and everything I make...

Banoffee Pie

The movie is Love Actually. Keira Knightley’s character shows up at her new husband’s best friend’s house. Best friend is in LOVE with her, but she doesn’t know it yet (he deals with his thwarted love by being mean to her). She shows up at his house for a favor, and as a way...

Winter Pear Crostata

Winter Pear Crostata

I heart pears. Seriously, I love them. I like them under-ripe, over-ripe, in desserts, whatever. Since I’ve been wanting to make a crostata for a while now, and my pears were perfectly ripe and crying out to be used in some magical way, the winter pear crostata was born!

Spinach Ricotta Pie with Whole Wheat Crust

Spinach Ricotta Pie with Whole Wheat Crust

I came across this recipe, technically a quiche, and realized while reading through the ingredients list that I had almost all of the ingredients on hand. Quiche typically uses heavy cream and a whole lotta eggs, whereas this quiche’s filling used mainly low-fat ricotta cheese – definitely a much healthier take on a typically...

Light Cannoli Cheesecake

Learning how to cook will save you money, calories, and your life. Don’t scoff – cooking for yourself is almost always healthier than restaurant food and long life is an indirect result of a healthy diet. There is a downside to cooking; the mystery calorie curtain is lifted and your entire view of food...
