Black Forest Cake

Black Forest Cake

I always feel weird around my birthday. Every year the whole thing seems a bit silly as I predictably become sheepish and awkward when all the attention turns to me for no reason other than the fact that I was born on that day.  I’m […]

Peach Blackberry Crisp

Peach Blackberry Crisp

I call my husband sailor. For anyone that knows him, it’s not hard to figure out why. He is, in fact, a sailor — he served in the Coast Guard, loves sailing, and if he had his choice of anything or being on the water, he’d […]

Pineapple Salsa

Exactly one year ago, I was exactly 13 days away from getting married. Which means I was probably about 7 days away from a 6-day stretch of sleepless nights, last-minute anxiety about silly, arbitrary things that I’ll never care about again like place-cards and the […]

I know that I’ve made it more than clear that I absolutely adore autumn, but each year I seem to forget that it also marks the beginning of a long stretch of busy, busy months. It seems like nearly everyone I know was born between […]

So, I know that we’ve only just crested the hill into autumn and summer is still clinging in the air, but since I was ready for fall about a month and a half ago, I’d say this recipe is right on time. Alright, maybe I’m […]
