Salted Caramel Pumpkin Fluff Pie

Anyone who knows me knows I HATE the pumpkin spice trend. It is everywhere! You can’t escape it, you can’t hide. I have seen it in coffee, coffee creamer, cream cheese, chips, tea, chocolate bars, air fresheners, personal care products (really, REALLY personal), whipped peanut butter, and in mass produced cookies of all kinds. It starts showing up sometime in September and doesn’t go away until mid-December. I think,...

Apple Pecan Tart

I am a sinful person (as if the Evil in my blog’s title was not proof enough). This tart is proof of my sinful ways. You see, in my heart of hearts I am a slothful person. Don’t tell anyone, but there is nothing I like better than to spend a lazy day at home in my jammies watching movies while I neglect the housework, and my adult responsibilities. I have overcome my lazy nature for the most part, my lazy days are few and...

Cheesy Roast Beef Pie Bites

Another year draws to a close. 2013 was a big year for me in many ways. Lots of life changing events.

If you know me at all you know she was a source of inspiration to me. A real treasure. She was a strong, smart, spunky lady who had a ready smile, a warm heart, and baked a killer pecan...

When I was little I used to love savory appetizers and bite-sized treats – especially if they feature cheese! My mother used to make cheese crackers during the holidays that I would start anticipating from the moment the Thanksgiving turkey hit the oven. When I would go out to brunch with my...

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Pie

Have you ever had a Food Sad? This pie was a response to a Food Sad I had recently. “Hold on, Kelly,” you may be saying. “What is a Food Sad?” Well, it is any food – either homemade or purchased – that is, when compared to something else, disappointing. Ever had dinner with someone who got a dish that was better than yours? Food Sad. Ever made a meal that did not taste as good as you expected? Food...

Toasted Pecan Chocolate Cheese Tart

My goodness, it is nearly Turkey Day! I am not sure where the year went, I feel like I just took down the Christmas tree, yet I find myself at the starting line for another holiday season. With most holidays I start my planning with the menu. This year my mother is hosting Thanksgiving at her house. For my mom Thanksgiving is all about tradition. If it were up to her we would have the exact same meal year after year. It is a lovely...
