Salty Honey Pie

Salty Honey Pie

I’ve seen this recipe for Salty Honey Pie on so many blogs over the past few years, and have always been intrigued by it. It sounded kind of weird, but kind of like Crack Pie, but also maybe like a butter tart with honey instead of corn syrup. When Kristine and I went to Cake […]

Strawberry Slice

While I may not have figured out my signature summer cocktail just yet, here’s my Summer Sixteen signature dessert. I made this two weeks in a row, and considering I hardly every make the same thing twice, it automatically qualifies. This is what’s happening in this four layer party in a pie plate: Graham cracker […]

Brown Butter Apple Galette

Last December I made a bold declaration on this here blog of mine: I was done with apple pie. I had finally had enough after making Saveur magazine’s Salted Caramel Apple Pie for Christmas, and was ready to put that out into the world. I often have trouble with pie in general, mostly because I […]

Peach Filling

There’s really only a certain section of society that understands the importance of peach season. The citizens of Winona for one (Hi Alexis!) and my food blogging friends. It’s the most wonderful time of the year. I only had one item on my peach to-do list for 2015: dumplings or bust. Like most great successes […]

Blueberry Custard Pie

I’ve been operating on a two-month delay over here when it comes to summer fruit, but luckily just caught the end of blueberry season a couple of weeks ago. I made that amazing Blueberry Buckle, but was dreaming of this Blueberry Custard Pie; a mash-up of the Blueberry Pie I made two summers ago, and […]

Rhubarb Cream Cheese Hand Pies

Sometimes I have a moment when I see a new recipe and I’m like omgineedtomakethisrightaway and I can’t stop thinking about it. This becomes a problem when dealing with seasonal fruit, and rhubarb in particular, because if you don’t drop everything and make it right away, you’ll have to wait like a year for your […]

Peanut Butter Pie

The second dessert I made for my Blog-iversary party is another one I’ve wanted to make for years, and has a bit of a back story behind it. In 2011, food writer and blogger Jennie Perillo lost her husband suddenly. In response to the outpouring of support and people asking what they could do to […]

This is it! Our last recipe from Baked Elements! I only joined in on this book about a year ago, but because of the expedited baking schedule of the last five months, have been able to make about half of the recipes. I’ll do a little recap below of my favourite recipes from the book, […]

Brown Sugar Bourbon Ice Cream

Well, I thought we’d go out with a bang before it’s all Apples, Pumpkins and Pears* around here!  Since I started a new job right in the middle of the summer, it kind of upset my flow in the kitchen, and feel like I didn’t get to make as many pies, crumbles, popsicles and ice […]
