Apple Cider Doughnuts Recipe (Made with Fresh Apples)

Apple Cider Doughnuts Recipe (Made with Fresh Apples)

Apple cider and apple cider doughnuts are the junior harbingers of fall in New England. They may not have the popular vote like pumpkin-spiced anything, but they do have their loyal constituents that seek them out when the changing leaves signal their return. Apple orchards looking to peddle more apple products often have boxes or … Continue reading

These blondies are probably one my favorite desserts to make at home. They’re simple, easy, and absolutely fantastic. For those of you that don’t know, blondies are basically a cross between a brownie and a chocolate chip cookie that takes the best of both. My friend’s wife introduced me to this type of blondie when … Continue reading

Fresh and Tart Cranberry Pie Recipe

Fresh and Tart Cranberry Pie Recipe

Between fall and Christmas, there is a surplus of cranberries at the grocery store. Other than making cranberry sauce, I wanted a way to try and use these tartly bitter berries from the Northeast to create a less common dish.

Perfect Pecan Pie Recipe

Perfect Pecan Pie Recipe

Pie is a quintessential dessert during the holiday season. When I was a kid, I didn’t understand how to make one because my family only purchased them from bakeries. One Thanksgiving, my aunt made a pecan pie from scratch and in response to my utter amazement, she brushed off my praise by telling me it … Continue reading

Buttermilk Cornbread Recipe

Buttermilk Cornbread Recipe

Cornbread is easily one of my favorite accompaniments to barbecue or Southern cooking. It’s hearty, comforting, and adds a touch of savory-sweetness to any dish. It’s often one of the touchstones by which I judge any self-respecting barbecue restaurant. Unfortunately, it’s shocking how many restaurants don’t know how to make a good cornbread. Often, it … Continue reading

Whenever fall rolls around the need for pumpkin and pie spices takes over the general populace.

Mini Vanilla Cakes Topped with Berries

Mini Vanilla Cakes Topped with Berries

As we approach the birth of our great nation (that’s the U.S.A. to my foreign readers), I wanted to do something special. Over the past few weeks, I’ve posted a lot of grilled, fried, and steamed meats, so I thought I would change it up a bit. I don’t know why I thought of baking … Continue reading

Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Classic, no frills, pumpkin pie. I’m finally getting around to putting this recipe up and even though I made my own pie with absolutely no technical finesse (it’s these big clunky man hands), that doesn’t mean you can’t do something pretty with this simple recipe. As far as the taste goes, I was extremely pleased … Continue reading

Chocolate Bark with Crushed Sugar Wafers

Chocolate Bark with Crushed Sugar Wafers

I now realize, after starting this blog, that I really don’t make a lot of desserts at home.  I’m not sure why that is. It could be because I possibly enjoy savory foods more than sweets. It could be because I’m not that confident in my baking skills. It could be because I receive plenty … Continue reading
