Every year on March 14th the world celebrates National Pi Day. Not be confused with National Pie Day. 🙂 The former is a celebration of the mathematical constant “pi”. Which I admittedly know next to nothing about considering the fact that it is mathematically based and math has never been my str
I love apple fritters! They have been a favorite of mine for a long time. This homemade version is packed with tender apple chunks and cinnamon. The texture is soft and moist on the inside (kind of like a muffin) while the outside is crispy. A wonderful glaze coats the outside, filling in all the g

After 5 years of food blogging, I am ashamed to admit to the fact that there isn’t one Apple Pie recipe living and breathing on this site of mine. Can you believe it! Will wonders never cease. 🙂 It is high time I add one to my archives and fall seemed to be the right time to make it happen.
I have a fabulous pie recipe for you today, dear readers. This Caramel Banana Cream Pie has a wonderful graham cracker crust, covered with sweet bananas, luscious caramel and a cream filling that is divine. It’s topped with cool whip and another layer of caramel, sending it right over the edge of bl
I love a good ice cream pie. They are so easy to put together and make a fun finish to any meal. I made this cherry chocolate version a couple of weeks ago when I had my parents over for dinner. My day is a big cherry chocolate fan, so I thought it would be appropriate. He loved it! 🙂 Mission acc
When I was newly married and highly inexperienced at cooking (this is no joke, I honestly didn’t know a thing! The cooking experience I brought along to my marriage consisted of the Lion House taffy I had learned to make at my college job. You feel bad for MyHandsomeHusband, don’t you? He did most o
I am all about donuts this week! You may have the noticed the killer fabulous Apple Fritters I posted on Wednesday (click over at your own risk) and today I am bringing Chocolate Glazed Donuts to the party. What can I say, other than it’s summer and my teenagers are home and why not make donuts in

Thanksgiving is coming up here in the next few weeks, and man that makes a girl like me smile. I love Thanksgiving, and not just because the food is so glorious. Fabulous food is reason enough to smile, don’t get me wrong. I kind of have a thing for food, after all. But what I love most is spendin
Hello, everyone. I have two recipes for you today. Both pumpkin.
Both Pumpkin Pie, even! This Creamy Pumpkin Pie recipe was given to me by my dear friend Julie. It was given to her, by her lovely mother in law…also named Julie.
Wow. There are a lot of nice ladies around named Julie.
Do you have a Halloween Hangover? Does the sound of sugar and chocolate make you green? Are pumpkin guts stuck to your kitchen floor? Do crusty tubes of face paint adorn your bathroom counter? Did you get to bed too late last night, only to wake up to shriveled up-burned out pumpkins lounging
Once upon a time, on my birthday…a sweet friend of mine showed up at my doorstep with the most fabulous Banana Cream Pie I’ve ever tasted in my whole life. And that is no joke. It was creamy, dreamy and made a wonderful birthday gift. My friend was kind enough to share the recipe with me (an
This is a super great recipe and family favorite. Whenever I take it somewhere I am always asked for the recipe. I found it several years ago in my 15 year old Better Homes and Gardens cook book. It is simple to put together, requires no baking, and tastes like a thick, yummy piece of fudge. I have
My friend Kristine and I were having a whole conversation about fresh peaches, just the other day.What is the BEST way to eat a fresh peach, we wondered. Chatted about it for quite some time, actually. It’s nice to have friends who like food as much as I do.

Nothing says spring like fresh strawberries, does it?
Ok..maybe tulips, and asparagus and the Easter bunny.
But fresh strawberries certainly have their place, now don’t they.
And Fresh Strawberry Pie….

I hope you are having a nice weekend and you have managed to keep yourself free from sunburn and mosquito bites. We’ve had a bit of both around here. But, what can you expect! The glorious summer time is upon us, and heat is all around.

I know it’s January. And some of you have vowed to never look at sugar again, or sniff it…or (heaven forbid) TASTE it for the rest of your entire hard knock life.
Or until February 1st…whichever comes sooner.
And to those of you who have taken this vow, I apologize. I am sincerely
I had a fun opportunity to get together with a few food blogging friends the other day for an ice cream party. We had a great time “talking shop” so to speak, letting our kids run wild and tasting some fabulous homemade ice cream. Ashlee from Ashlee Marie brought an amazing Cake Mix and Sprinkles
For those of you who have forgotten…
Mother’s Day is lurking just around the corner.
This is not a joke.

Some food is more photogenic than others, is it not? I have to admit I loved taking pictures of these cute little desserts about 100 times more than I enjoy taking pictures of…say, beef stroganoff. Not that beef stroganoff doesn’t have some sturdy features of its own to offer, it just doesn’t pac
I’m not sure how I’ve lived the life of a food blogger for 3 1/2 years now and have failed to share this fabulous recipe with you thus far. The very notion that I would keep it to myself is verging on scandalous and sort of rude. Truly. It’s not that I wanted to hoard it for myself or anything li
For quite some time now, I have wanted to learn to make a lattice topped pie. They are just so pretty and inviting! With Thanksgiving on the horizon I figured it was a good time to learn. I love the taste of a triple berry pie…so I researched several recipes, studied the art of lattice pie mak
