chewy ginger cookies

I will be the first to admit that I fall hard for anything and everything pumpkin, but I find that September is tricky. Fall technically doesn’t arrive until the end of September, and I have always lived in the South, where the weather really doesn’t feel like fall, and won’t for another month or two…

They allow me to extend my creativity but still feel secure in the creation process. I have made shortbread more times than I can count, and pecan sandies (icebox cookies), which follow a…

When I first started brainstorming recipes I knew I wanted a chocolaty treat for Valentine’s Day. Homemade…

apple cake with apple cider soak, brown butter crumble, and cinnamon frosting

While cake is not my preferred dessert, I love the creativity that comes with making a cake. Each layer and part is an opportunity to create one piece of a greater flavor profile. This apple cake with apple cider soak, brown butter crumble, and cinnamon frosting is the perfect example. Fall and winter are my…
