Caramel Apple Martini

I realize that I’m focusing on fall a little early, but I hope you’ll forgive me. It’s my favorite time of year, and it seems to go by way too quickly. In the fall, one of the most comforting flavor combinations (other than pumpkin with almost anything) is caramel and apple. As we head into […]

Prepped and Primed

Happy Monday, friends! Today I’m popping in to share a brief update about my basement stairwell makeover. Even though we are still not into pretty territory, things are looking a whole lot better.

A Year of Pie: Berry Cup Pies

Ever since I started A Year of Pie back in January, one of my goals has been to make cup pies. I’m not sure if there really is such a thing, but I got the idea from the television series Pushing Daisies, which premiered back in 2007. To be honest, I never watched the show […]

And Then There Were Two
