Apple and Almond Custard Tart

I know it’s going to seem like I baked two apple desserts in one week. I’m also aware that not all of you may share the same love of apple desserts as much as I do. Please bear with me while I get these apple desserts out of my system.


Cranberry-Apple Pie

It can’t already be time to start planning for the holidays. I swear I’m still nibbling on Halloween candy I have stashed in my secret hiding place.


Walnut Streusel Bread–#QuickBreadMonday

It’s not often that I find myself baking with rolled oats. But I always have them here handy in case I get inspired. I even buy them when it’s buy one get one free. See, I’m really prepared for an amazing oat recipe.


Chocolate Espresso Pecan Pie #LovethePie - Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup

Thanksgiving is less than a week away! Yikes-how did this happen??I’m clearly not ready, as usual. I am always looking for some new recipe ideas and inspiration. Perhaps you are too. So look no further.


Vanilla Bundt Cake with Caramel Glaze– #BundtaMonth

Caramelized Banana Bread with Brown Butter Glaze #QuickBreadMonday

I can honestly say that we go through a lot of bananas over here. It’s a healthy snack and is wonderful in baking. I make a banana bread at least once a week and love to share them with my family and neighbors.


Saffron Rice with Golden Raisins and Pine Nuts

Sticky Chocolate Date Loaf–#WeCare

I’ve never kept track of all the hurricanes and storms I’ve been through in Florida. I’d like to consider myself an expert with all the storm tracking and terminology. I know exactly what supplies to buy and we have a plan for when it’s our time to evacuate.


Gingerbread Apple Bundt Cake- #BundtaMonth

When I think of baking in November, I automatically dream of the wonderful spicy scented cakes I used to grow up with. My mother is an amazing baker and so was her aunt.


Apple Bread Ring- #TwelveLoaves November

Autumn is one of my favorite times of the year to bake and cook. I am very partial to apple desserts and have a long list of things I’d like to try every day if I had the time.
