Pecan Pie

Soooo… we had 3 pies for 3 people this Thanksgiving. My mom ordered blueberry from Whole Foods, which was very good, but I couldn’t help myself and also made two more. For my family, Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without apple pie, see last week’s recipe. However, I also really like pecan pie, and I’ve neverContinue reading “Pecan Pie”

The BEST Apple Pie

Happy belated Thanksgiving. This apple pie is one of my specialties, and Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without it. It’s piled high with crisp apples. I hate when pies feel like 90% crust 10% filling when I would rather it have it the other way around. It’s tart, yet still sweet and juicy. The crust isContinue reading “The BEST Apple Pie”

Mini Pumpkin Cakes

I made the recipe small batch, so you’ll get 3 mini pumpkin cakes. The cakes areContinue reading “Mini Pumpkin Cakes”

It’s one of my favorite flavors, and this time a year I put it in everything from desserts to breakfast to soup to roasted veggies. For such a complex concept, it’s super easyContinue reading “Cinnamon Roll Croissant Loaf”

My family recently had our 2nd macaron baking showdown. I won’t lie, I kind of went off the grid and didn’t use a scale for my recipe, so it was not my best work. I thought I’d share my sister’s recipe instead, as she thoughtfully made hers vegan, too. Macarons are one of our favoriteContinue reading “Mel’s Lemon Macarons”

Strawberry Orange Morning Knots

I looove a good pastry and we had a bunch of oranges to use, so I was excited to make this recipe. They’ve got a nice blast of citrus and are a perfect way to wake yourself up with a cup of coffee or tea in the morning. The shape is really fun, and everyoneContinue reading “Strawberry Orange Morning Knots”
