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...

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...

Salted Caramel Peach Crumble Pie

It’s giveaway time! As most of you know my second cookbook, Not-So-Humble Pie, was recently released, and to celebrate I am going to give away two copies!

This book is in full color and it has lots of pretty photographs (at least I think they are since I took them). Because I love you, and I want you to get as many chances to win as...

Two-Bite Strawberry Hand Pies

This post comes to you from damply beautiful Seattle, Washington! Yes, kids, I am in Seattle for BlogHer Food 2012 and not just as an attendee, but I am speaking! I am nervous, but terribly excited, and ready to get the party started! The last month has been a CRAZY travel month for me. First, I went to Camp Blogaway, then I spent 6 days in Tokyo (expect a few Japanese themed recipes in the future – the place is life changing!),...

Mini Crab, Spinach, and Mushroom Tarts

Dear Pie, It has been a while, hasn’t it? It has been difficult to think about pie for the last few months because I spent the better part of a year writing two different cookbooks dedicated to the subject. From sweet to savory, and some pies that were a little of both, I was adrift in a sea of crusts, crumbles, and fillings with no end in sight. I love pie, but you can have too much of a good thing and I needed a pie hiatus....

White Chocolate Fudge Pie

You would think I would be over pies. It is true that after writing Everything Pie (due out in September and available for pre-order at the link to your right) I would never want to bake another pie again.  For a while that was true, but after a few pie-free months I noticed that I did not feel the same instant aversion to pie as I had.  In fact, last week I actually had a craving for pie.  Specifically one made with white chocolate...
