Apple Pecan ‘Mummy’ Dumplings

Do you know about October Unprocessed? Well, Andrew Wilder over at Eating Rules created a challenge – one month of clean eating meaning you cut out processed foods and eat whole, natural, real food. I love real food! I can’t remember the last time I used a packaged product, or something with insane ingredients, to prepare a meal for people I love. The test for October Unprocessed worthiness is simple: if you can reasonably...

Pumpkin Beer Butterscotch Mousse Puffs

I am not usually happy to see summer go. Summer fruits and berries are leaving the markets. Just thinking about the end of peach makes me terribly sad!

Dark Chocolate Chip Pavlova with Strawberry Whipped Cream

This has been an exciting week for me! I am so happy to let you know that I am going to write a second cookbook!  It will be another book about pies, because you can’t have too much pie I suppose, but this book will be different than the last in that it will focus on gourmet ingredients and high-end flavors.  I have a pretty tight deadline for this one but I am confident I can get it all written in time.  To celebrate I decided...
