This is the apple pie to end all apple pies, and the only apple pie recipe you’ll never need. It’s simple and classic— just a pile of apples spiced with cinnamon, baked into a homemade butter pie crust.

However, there is one obvious thing that sets this apple pie apart from all the others. With nearly six pounds of apples inside, it’s sure to be the largest apple pie you’ll ever bake! >>More

Lemon Berry Tart |

I think one of the first things I baked at home once I decided to attend culinary school and become a “serious” baker was a tart just like this— a sweet pastry dough crust with a homemade vanilla pastry cream and fresh berries. It wasn’t a huge challenge, but there was just something about being able to make one of my favorite bakery treats at home all by myself.

It was definitely a proud moment, and one that made me think “okay, I can do this.” >> More

When my friend Andie Mitchell sent me an advance copy of her book Eating in the Middle: A Mostly Wholesome Cookbook I couldn’t put it down. Every page held another gorgeous photo, another recipe I couldn’t wait to try.

Chocolate raspberry breakfast pudding, coconut curry brussels sprouts, and cheddar biscuit-topped barbecue chicken pie— oh my!

But it should come as no surprise to anyone that the first recipe I made came from her dessert chapter. From the moment I laid eyes on this peanut butter mousse pie, I knew I had to have it. >> More

I need to thank you all for the outpouring of love I have received since I lost my mom. The messages, emails, and comments from both friends and strangers has blown me away. I am truly touched.

I’m still having a hard time, understandably, but life moves on. My husband and boys sustain me, and creating recipes for all of you keeps me moving forward. Taking long walks in the warm sunshine and eating ice cream straight from the carton help too. >> More
