I have never made red velvet cake from scratch, but it seemed like an easy way to celebrate the Independence Day holiday with red and blue. Admittedly, the blue turned out kinda green, but it still tastes amazing, lightly chocolate-y and delicious. I got the recipe from Adams, which just [...]
Tart apples contrast with a sweet caramel sauce in a pecan crusted pie.

Oh, goodness… these are so bad… in an amazing way. Fried pastry covered in sugar and honey!! I love sopapillas. But I have to make them at home. If I get a chance to eat at a good Mexican restaurant, by dessert time I am too stuffed to order a sopapilla. [...]
I love me some Martha. And I was in heaven when I got Martha Stewart’s Baking Handbook. When I ran across the Chocolate Babka recipe in Martha’s book I knew I had to try it. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love chocolate but not as much as I used [...]
