salted maple pie

T-minus one week until Thanksgiving is here in full force! Last week we prepped with cornbread stuffing with herbs and leeks, this week we have the perfect way to end the meal: salted maple pie. I am always inspired by bakeries that make beautiful pies in fun flavors. They seem to get more press this…

gifts for the hostess

It’s gift guide season, everyone! It seems like with all of the sales and online shopping, more and more people are doing a lot of their Christmas shopping before Thanksgiving (or before December) and during Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend.
