No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

The last-minute dessert is not something I usually enjoy preparing. I’m a planner; I like having time to read some recipes, drool over some pictures, and stock my pantry with all the right ingredients before diving in. I often plan to bake on a Friday, so I can spend all week dreaming about just the [...]


Old Fashioned Chess Pie

There are some things that just scream summertime to me in Tennessee. Local farmers setting up booths on the side of the road selling produce, the sudden influx of activities outdoors like family movie nights on the lawn, and, of course, the oppressive humidity.

Baking For Babies: Very Berry Oatmeal Cookies

Lactogenic banana bread

I adapted my low fat banana bread recipe to be a little more lactogenic based on what I’ve learned about possible substitutions, and I was really surprised that it was moist, and that it actually baked through (I’ve often made disaster quickbreads where the center never sets and remains gooey, especially when I’ve substituted applesauce [...]
