Sugarplum Bread

Sugarplum Bread

Do you know anyone who actually likes fruitcake? I know exactly two people and they are Granny and my mom/intern. In fact our mom asks for a fruitcake every year for Christmas and because no one else is willing to even try this dessert pariah seasonal […]

Cranberry Sorbet

Cranberry Sorbet

For many people, myself included, the cranberry sauce element of Thanksgiving dinner is quite the afterthought. Judge away, but I happen to love the cranberry jelly right out of the can, still in the shape of the can. Although it doesn’t look like much, I’ve […]

Sausage Cornbread

Sausage Cornbread

Before you dot the i’s and cross the t’s of your final holiday menu, consider adding Sausage Cornbread somewhere -anywhere- to your lineup! It is a dish that can be whatever you need it to be. If you need a make-and-bake-ahead breakfast so you don’t […]

Granny’s Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Not […]

Carpool Apple Betty

Carpool Apple Betty

A recipe can be like a game of telephone. One person passes their famous recipe on to the members of their book club, those bookworms make some changes then pass their versions on to their kids, those kiddos grow up and make changes over time, […]

Cranberry Scones with Maple Glaze

Cranberry Scones with Maple Glaze

When given the choice between a scone and any other breakfast treat, as a child, there was no contest. A cinnamon roll, a danish, or even a buttery bagel would beat out a scone every time. Scones just always seemed like a grown up breakfast. […]

Granny’s Golden Apple Fritters with Honey Glaze

Granny’s Golden Apple Fritters with Honey Glaze

It has been said that Americans will deep fry just about anything. But I really don’t know anyone who wants to deep fry anything. The words deep fry, to me, are synonymous with calories and a messy stove top. However, in an effort to use […]

Trick-or-Treat Cake

Trick-or-Treat Cake

Although my personal costume selection has evolved over the years (please let all pictures from my college years be lost forever), kids’ costumes really have not changed. In my youth, our costumes were usually hand sewn by my mom, with the exception of the highly […]
