Caramel Apple Pie

Caramel Apple Pie

I love fall. It’s hard to believe how far into fall we are. However, it’s also hard to believe I have an 8-month old. One of the things that I enjoy, and that I missed doing for a few years, is apple picking. I finally […]

Whole Grain Pumpkin Yeast Bread

Whole Grain Pumpkin Yeast Bread

It’s amazing how much time and energy moving takes. I don’t recall moving being so involved before. The move from Missouri to New Jersey is certainly the longest I’ve ever done, but I think that moving when I have a baby due in just a […]

Applesauce Oatmeal Bread

Applesauce Oatmeal Bread

Bread, Week 10: I wasn’t sure what to bake this week. I was out of town over the weekend so I had no time to make yeast bread. I didn’t have ingredients (mostly bananas) for other bread recipes I had bookmarked. This Applesauce Oatmeal Bread […]

Soft Cranberry Orange Cookies

Soft Cranberry Orange Cookies

When signing up for a pre-Thanksgiving work potluck recently, I noticed that no one had signed up yet for a dish with cranberries. I thought of making cranberry sauce or relish, would be tasty and all – but we all know that I love sweets. […]

I went back and forth about writing up this Pumpkin Chocolate Chip recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod. Upon making this recipe, I discovered that I’m not particularly fond of the pumpkin-chocolate combination. Apparently my growing appreciation of pumpkin doesn’t mesh well with my love […]

Apple Cider Donut Cake

Apple Cider Donut Cake

My friend Jen loves apples, and knows I love recipes. One day during the fall, she sent me a recipe for Apple Cider Donut Cake. I looked for a reason to make it all autumn, but lacked either the ingredients or the time. I finally […]

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Earlier in October I read the recipe for Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls and decided I had to make them. Late every year, I feel the need to cook things that fill my house with smells of cinnamon and other warm spices. I’ve been lax in my […]

Apple Galette

Apple Galette

Alex and I went to visit friends in Boston this past weekend. Our original flight back to St. Louis was cancelled due to the hurricane, so we enjoyed the chance to stay a little longer with our friends Randy and Sarah. (Thank you again for […]

Curried Lentil-Stuffed Squash

Curried Lentil-Stuffed Squash

Now that the weather has convinced me that it’s fall, I’ve begun making seasonally-appropriate recipes. I’m not generally one for dishes that require presentation. I don’t put effort into how my food looks, as long as it looks tasty, and I’m more likely to make […]
