Pie Goals.

Summer goals = all the pies!! This week, I’ve been scouring the internet and sifting through my cookbooks to look for inspiring pie recipes, unique pie making techniques, and pie decorating ideas. My goal is to bake a few pies each month through September,...

Simply the Best Blueberry Pie.

My dad and I have identical tastebuds. We’re pie people. And since Father’s Day is around the corner, I made homemade blueberry pie, his favorite variety. And he said it was “simply the best blueberry pie” he’s ever had. (Hi Dad I know you’re reading this and...

Easy Corn Fritters.

Real life lunch and dinner food for you today. As much as we’d all love to cozy up with a giant skillet cookie and 1 spoon, this skillet food seems to be a bit more practical and healthful. Not that a giant cookie as...

Peanut Butter Skillet Cookie.

This weekend felt like vacation. No set plans, just friends and family making visits to our new house. Unpacking boxes, hanging pictures, sitting on the front porch, baking, handfuls of greasy BBQ chips washed down with homemade orange crushes (staying classy!), sun streaming through the...

Strawberry Vanilla Crisp.

Strawberry Vanilla Crisp-2

There is little I love in life more than a simple fruit crisp at the end of a warm summer day. The juicier the fruit, the crumblier the streusel, the colder the vanilla ice cream, the better. Fruit crisps are dessert summer saviors. When there’s about 107 things...

Grapefruit Greek Yogurt Cake.

grapefruit yogurt cake-5

Rearranging the way we eat grapefruit and yogurt every morning. Also eating cake for breakfast. I don’t actually eat grapefruit and yogurt (or, sadly, cake) every morning, but if you slapped a fat slice of this grapefruit yogurt cake on my plate, I wouldn’t fight it. Especially...
