Caramel Apple Bars are wickedly good. If I was any kind of food photographer, you’d have a photo deserving of their awesomeness rather than 3 brown squares on a plate. However, 3 brown squares on a plate is what you get when you are TOO DISTRACTED by the smell of the Caramel Apple Bars to […]

Pumpkin Pie is a must for Thanksgiving at my house. Pumpkin Pie is also a must for breakfast the day after Thanksgiving at my house. Let’s talk about pies. Do I make the world’s most beautiful pie crust? Nope. (Don’t let those fancy leaves fool you.) Do I make a pie crust that tastes great […]

Let’s give thanks for a Thanksgiving that doesn’t need to totally stress us out. I love Thanksgiving dinner with the big bird and all the sides. It reminds me of going to my grandma’s house in Kansas City where she would look at the table FULL of food and fret, “maybe I need to put […]
