Apple Cider Donut Cake

Apple Cider Donut Cake

My friend Jen loves apples, and knows I love recipes. One day during Fall 2012, she sent me a recipe for an Apple Cider Donut Cake. I looked for a reason to make it all autumn, but lacked either the ingredients or the time. I finally […]

No-Sugar-Added Slow Cooker Apple Butter

One of the foods that I discovered as an adult was apple butter. It’s something I look forward to every fall! I’ve always wanted to make it, but I had a very specific idea in mind on what I wanted. I wanted to make an […]

Alton Brown’s Pina Colada Waffles

Alton Brown’s Pina Colada Waffles

For months, I’ve had cans of coconut milk stored in my pantry, in anticipation of trying out these Pina Colada Waffles with Rum Sauce again. I first made them from Alton Brown’s recipe 8 years ago when I did my 365 Recipe Challenge, but I’ve […]

We make pancakes ridiculously often, and this recipe for super easy pancakes is the recipe we use on a regular basis. Alex and I both have it memorized. I love how simple it is – just whisk together the ingredients and cook. No whipping egg […]
