I am a firm believer that there is truly no better dessert in the summertime than a berry pie.  It signifies all that is good those gloriously warm, long days.  It represents the very best of summer produce.  It needs little to no additions, and truly stands out as one of the best desserts one can make.  So, throw in the towel on that summer bod already and let’s get baking.

As it has been well documented so far this summer, I am nothing if not a obsessive of all desserts using summer fruit.  And, for my second consecutive July 4th there is no better way to celebrate than with pie.  Some people bake pies to celebrate, some people bake pies as therapy and some people just really like eating pie (ahem, husbands).  Whatever the reason you find yourself making a pie this summer season, I […]

I don’t know when Pi Day became a thing, but it’s gotten so well known even my co-workers asked me how I planned on celebrating.  As an avid celebrator of holidays you can bet this was not one that would be overlooked.  And, while pie is my absolute favorite summer dessert and you can bet your sweet cheeks you’ll see many a recipe in the coming warmer months there is just one teeny, tiny issue I […]

You guys, Summer is almost over.  When did this happen?  I’m sorry to bring this up and put a big damper on your mood but one must face reality.  As a result, the final few weeks I am simply gorging myself on as many summer peaches I can get my hands on and the things I can make with them.  And, I’ll let you in on a little secret.  I’ve never been all that into […]

Something weird happens when you move to the suburbs.  You start doing laundry more often, buying things in bulk and hoarding new kitchen supplies like it was going out of style.  Because, my kitchen is huge.  Like, obnoxiously huge.  In fact, it’s probably almost 3X as big as my old bedroom in New York.  So you can’t really blame me for filling it all up with notoftenusedbutstillcompletelynecessary kitchen toys.  But without it, this stone fruit galette […]

I love holidays.  I don’t know what it is about them.  The chance to spend time with family and friends.  The knowledge that were we not celebrating, we would otherwise be sitting in an office.  Having the time to make and then consume too much food.  And, perhaps my favorite, a reason to spend time in your kitchen baking the most fantastic themed desserts.  July 4th is no exception.  And, July 4th simply begs..no, no […]

Sometimes I wonder if my fiancé isn’t just a little bit crazy.  Take this weekend for example.  This weekend is one of his ‘favorite weekends of the year’ weekend.  This was Masters weekend.  Don’t know what that is?  Well, I didn’t either until a few years ago.  All you need to know is it’s three full days of golf.  Have you ever watched a golf tournament before?  Probably not, because you fell asleep 10 minutes […]
