Pumpkin Pie Hummus

It’s so easy this time of year to give into store-bought (read: highly processed junk) treats. We tell ourselves it’s okay to indulge in something once in a while…but this time of year, when is it ever once? Especially when there’s the office and schools overflowing with these goodies, not to mention all the parties […]

Apple-Cranberry Deep Dish Pie

What better way to usher in Fall than with an apple-cranberry pie? It’s a little sweet, a little tart, a lot of crust, and a TON of fruit. It’s a nice take on a classic…and also, Scott’s mom makes the best apple pies ever so I don’t want to overstep my bounds here. But I […]

Apple-Olive Oil Cake

I got a bit of a craving to bake something today, and with about 20 pounds of apples to go through still, I needed a recipe that called for more than 1 apple. Unfortunately, so many recipes uses fruit as an afterthought or a flavoring, rather than the star ingredient. Honestly, all too often sugar […]

Roasted Peach Ice Cream

Nothing says summer like ice cream. Especially ice cream made from fresh ripe fruit. Store-bought ice cream is filled with scary chemicals and ridiculous amounts of sugar. And has anyone else noticed that ice cream has gotten ridiculously expensive? I mean, for the amount you pay for a pint of premium ice cream, you can […]

Raspberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Pops

It is still Popsicle Madness at our house! It is hot hot hot here and nothing cools ya off like an icy fruity treat! And then I thought, well how bad could an ice cream bar be? Turns out, not bad at all! Pretty darn delicious, actually. For some reason I’ve been really in the […]

Strawberry-Basil Popsicles

Popsicles are the new cupcakes. You heard it here first, folks! Not only are they waaaaaay easier, they are amazingly refreshing on a hot summer day. And they don’t go stale. And you don’t have to argue about Team Cake vs. Team Icing. Everyone’s on Team Popsicle. I have made two batches now and I […]

Strawberry Ice Cream

The first day of summer is tomorrow, the days are at their longest and will soon be at their hottest. I don’t know about you, but I am so. Freakin’. Excited. Summer is a time of pools, impromptu road trips, and cold beers. Sweating like crazy but sitting outside anyway, feeling your shoulders and cheeks […]

Almost-healthy brownies

This morning, before I even got out of bed (don’t judge), I emailed my mom asking for the brownie recipe I grew up with. I knew they weren’t healthy. I knew I wanted to make them over. My mom told me that the recipe was her paternal grandmother’s, a woman I never got to meet. […]
