Graham Coconut Caramel Cake

I have not made a cake for fun in a while. The problem with having a whole cake sitting around the house is I will eat a whole cake. I know I will. I have seen me do it. So, generally I do not make cakes to keep around the house, but I was feeling domestic the other day, and I was also feeling rather nostalgic. When I was little I would spend a few weeks with my grandmother Lola. She spoiled me with impunity, and would make me all...

Bourbon Caramel Apple Pie Cookies

All this cool weather has put me in in the mood for all my cold weather food favorites.  In particular, apple pie.  One of the best apple pies I have ever had had a buttery layer...
