Ch. 43: The Rustically Delicious Salted Butter Apple Galette

After clearing out the fridge, we ended up with a bag of small apples that we just didn’t have anywhere to put them. “Can you make something with this?” is a phrase that gets asked around a lot here. And sure enough I could. There’s just something about apples that make for really delicious pastries…

Ch. 40: The Sweet & Salty Blueberry Miso Crumb Cake

I’m always looking for some new and innovative flavors to try out whenever I’m searching for recipes. I tend to leave that to the experts who seem to have an endless supply of ingredients and all the time in the world to mess up- I mean that is their job. For me, I’m weary of…

Ch. 37: The Chocolate Macaroon Cake that you shouldn’t passover

Ch. 23: Vegan Coconut-Chocolate Mousse- a true pantry staple

I’d been going pretty heavy on the desserts lately and wanted to make something that could satisfy my sweet tooth, yet wouldn’t leave me feeling too guilty. Let’s face it- dessert is indulgent. However, that doesn’t mean you have to load up on sugar and fat every time you feel like treating yourself. I came…

Ch. 22: Pumpkin Caramel Tart, the bougie older cousin.

Pumpkin Pie is definitely one of my favorite desserts. It’s a beloved classic that my family and I share a fondness for- so much so that I make it all throughout the year and not just on Thanksgiving. I mean, who said we can only eat it in November? I’ve developed a great recipe for…
