Deep Dish Apple Pie

Happy (Belated) Thanksgiving, ya’ll! I went pie crazy this year as my Mom took care of the bulk of our Thanksgiving feast and I, unsurprisingly, was tasked with desserts. I wanted to try a new recipe for apple pie that I had seen in Bon Appétit. My Dad always leaves very strict instructions for apple pies:…

Lemon Meringue Pie

Hello readers! Sorry it’s been awhile…life and work just keep getting in the way…but bakes have been coming out of the kitchen. I thought I’d talk lemon meringue today. Pies aren’t my thing, as I’ve mentioned in this blog before, because I struggle with making that perfect, flaky pie crust that stands up to the…

Valentine’s Day Whoopie Pies

They are easy to make, they keep well, and when wrapped individually, they are a super cute gift for the Valentine’s holiday….

Chocolate Pecan Pie

I’ve never been a big fan of pecan pie. Mainly because I’m really not a fan of nuts. I’m allergic to walnuts, so I have that excuse, but not much of an excuse for other nuts…I just don’t really lik’em. I went on a quest to find a pecan pie that not only would my…
