S’mores Tart

Friends, hello. How are you? I hope this post finds you well wrapped up against the autumnal winds. There is a near constant haze of drizzle outside our windows lately, and I’ve been battling it the best way I know how: baking. Breads, cheesecakes, ice-creams,

Friends, hi! Happy Thursday! Please forgive my tardiness in bringing this post to you one day late – I am sorry. I was having an off day of sorts yesterday & I had to make a baked custard tart for my PUFF course. Let me

Hi friends! How is your summer shaping up? We’re doing pretty well over here, all things Covid-19/work/general life considered. The heat isn’t exactly something we love, but we’re coping by staying extra hydrated and seeking out shade. Due to all the socially distant garden visits

Sweet, sweet friends – hi! Thanks for stopping by for today’s recipe: Roasted Pecan Apple Pie with Cinnamon Crumble. Today marks the 15th day of our Covid-19 induced self-isolation. For the most part, we’re doing pretty fine. We’re keeping busy, trying to limit the number of

Do you remember way back in November’s Monthly Musings post when I told you I was “low-key obsessed” with a new cookbook, Sister Pie? That was a lie. I was – and still am – much more obsessed than what could ever be described as “low-key”.

I know what you’re thinking: more pie? Can’t she even go four posts before blogging about pie again?  Well, it would seem that I can’t. Having said that, this isn’t just any pie – this is a cider caramel apple pie from Erin’s fabulous book ‘The

It’s time to admit it: I am addicted to making pie. I can barely go a week without making some form or other. Double crust, single crust, pie-crumble hybrids, hand pies. Usually all-butter dough, but sometimes a buttermilk flavoured one. All types of fillings are

Is it entirely blasphemous to say that I was never really all that into strawberries? I’d snack on them if they were sitting in front of me, I’d enjoy them as the garnish, but I was never entirely wowed. Clearly, I had never had a

A few weeks ago, Boyfriend’s parents treated us to a staycation in Kerry. The trip promised to be relaxing retreat, where we’d spend some QT with Boyfriend’s family. It was a no-brainer. We booked the time off work, packed for all weather types, planned our

When I started getting into my pie groove last year, I started taking dough a lot more seriously. This involved being patient, and actually taking the time to keep everything cold during the assembly. We all know the crust can make or break a pie,

Today’s post was originally an incredibly delicious Maple Syrup Apple Upside-down Cake, but it was just so damn ugly that I simply couldn’t bring myself to actually share it. I’d already edited the photos & written the post, but I just couldn’t post it. Is

Now that the Pumpkin Pie post is out of the way, we can finally talk about pie that actually tastes as good as it looks. Hallelujah! Welcome to part three of the apple fest, friends! Like all good things, it’s salted and pumped full of autumnal

Here’s a secret that I probably shouldn’t tell: I made this Pecan Pie all the way back in April. The April that was six months ago. When the sun was starting to shine & make everything a bit warmer, I began dreaming about Autumn. Cozy

Here’s the thing: I love food. I especially love baked goods, anything to do with chocolate, fancy desserts, or anything involving ice cream. I eat everything, and it works out well for me because here’s the other thing: I run a food blog. Nobody wants

Someday soon I hope to not have to start a blog post with a list of excuses as to why I haven’t been posting. Today is not that day. Basically, I took a step back from everything. Finished college, left work, bid The Boyf farewell,

So I was going to let Valentine’s Day pass me by without my doing anything for the blog & it was going to be fine. No biggie, right? But then I started thinking seriously about it all. I remembered how good I used to be

According to my own personal blogging rules, this post is five whole days later than it should be. I have these rules for a reason – it’s all too easy to slide down the slippery slope of only posting up every once in a while.

Sometimes things happen. Sometimes these things can change your life. A thing like falling for someone & spending two years with them without barely noticing the time go by. Things like going out of your way to do something nice for this person, wanting to
