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 […]

Easy Candy Bar Tart

As much as I love baking my way through Baked Elements with the Baked Sunday Morning team, I noticed something strange today.

Sweet & Sour Meatballs

In my second year of university, I lived in a pretty awesome little house close to campus with five girls from my dorm. I hadn’t really kept in touch with them until the great Facebook boom of 2007.

Sweet & Spicy Green Beans

July 4, 2012 Vegetarian

Wow, look, a vegetable! After Farewell Treat week, then Rhubarb week, I’m sure you were wondering (probably not!) what I’ve been eating for dinner. The answer is: nothing too exciting.
