Apple Blossom Pie

When life gives you apples, make apple pie! I had an abundance of apples and they were begging to be baked into a dessert, but in the summer time I don’t really want to eat a classic apple pie warmed and served a la mode. This pie is the perfect balance between a no-bake dessert…

Classic Chip Cookies

A good chocolate chip cookie after a long day (or for breakfast… or for a snack… or literally any time) is one of the best things in the world. This recipe isn’t labeled “chocolate chip cookies” for a reason; you can substitute any chip and it will still be delicious. Milk, white, or dark chocolate,…

Peppermint White Chocolate Cookies

Christmas Cookies! How fun! They’re such a sweet tradition! … but aren’t they almost always dry, stale tasting, flavorless, and too sugary? No offense Christmas Cookies. These cookies, however, are full of holiday flavor AND they’re soft, chunky, and delicious! Peppermint is my favorite holiday flavor. To me it beats eggnog, nutmeg, caramel, chocolate, pumpkin,…

Homemade Soft Pretzels

I am obsessed with soft pretzels. They are my weakness and I freely admit that. Anytime I go to the mall I have to have one. This recipe is dangerous for me. These are so easy to make AND they taste just like Auntie Anne’s. You can coat them in cinnamon sugar, salt, pepperoni… anything….
