A Thanksgiving and Christmas tradition in my family is my grandma’s homemade chocolate pie. This from-scratch chocolate pie is simple and wholesome. It’s just creamy and sweet, cozy and comforting, just as the holidays should be. It’s nothing fancy, and that’s what makes it perfect.

My absolute favorite way to cook and eat winter squash is to grill it. As the flames cook it, it caramelizes and becomes sweeter. It’s so good, that Alex and I really don’t eat it any other way. Grilling slices of squash ensures that they

Layers of moist, rich chocolate cake. Cream cheese in the peanut butter frosting to cut through some of the richness. A peanut butter fudge ganache. I first made this Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake for Alex’s birthday 7 years ago. We had a party, fed it

This sandwich bread – Yeasted Banana Sandwich Bread – is the bread that I make the most. I first made it in 2011, and again in 2014 for Bread #39 of my 50 weeks of bread challenge. It was the first loaf of bread I

Chocolate Truffle Cake Tue, 05 May 2020 20:11:01 +0000

What if I told you that you could make a delicious flourless chocolate cake with very little fuss? That if you bungled the recipe, it would still be delicious? That, my friend, is this Chocolate Truffle Cake. No separating eggs, no electric mixers necessary. It’s

Cherry, Almond, and Cinnamon Granola Mon, 30 Mar 2020 20:50:00 +0000

I want to say something about how spring is beginning to brighten our days. But as I write this, many of us are working from home (if we’re lucky), stuck in our houses or yards (if we’re lucky), with our children theoretically doing schoolwork but

Chocolate Chip Cookie Scones Tue, 28 Jan 2020 20:03:51 +0000

One Saturday morning a few years ago, I asked Amelia what kind of scones we should make. “Chocolate chip!” she exclaimed, as she still usually does. Thus began my Chocolate Chip Cookie Scone experiment. First I tried making a cream scone in the style of

Gooey Butter Cookies (from scratch!) Fri, 06 Dec 2019 19:48:29 +0000

When I worked in St. Louis, I had to order a lot of casual catered lunches. Most of these involved a tray of cookies. As a home baker, I’m really particular about my sweets, and so I would almost never eat any cookie leftovers –

Triple Cinnamon Scones Mon, 18 Nov 2019 18:34:23 +0000

Despite the years that have passed since I first wrote about these Triple Cinnamon Scones, I had never forgotten about them. They were that good. Although the recipe has been on my blog for the last 7 years, I wasn’t thrilled with my write-up. Back

Healthier Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallows Tue, 12 Nov 2019 12:57:51 +0000

I first made this healthier version of sweet potatoes with marshmallows last Thanksgiving, and I adored them. It’s simply two ingredients – sweet potatoes roasted, split open, and topped with marshmallows. Thanksgiving just isn’t complete for us without some form of sweet potato. Alex in
