(Jason’s Favorite) Deep-Dish Pecan Pie

Jason’s birthday was last week, so I did what I do every year: made him his traditional birthday pecan pie. Yes, my weirdo of a husband is sort of neutral on birthday cake, but loooooves birthday pie. And not just any pie. It has to be my patented, world-famous, award-winning deep-dish pecan pie. [Okay fine,…

Pumpkin Praline Bread Pudding

I know pumpkin pie is all the rage this time of year, but I just can’t hang with it. It’s too…moist. It gives me the heebie-jeebies. It’s coat-your-throat, mush-around-your mouth, make-it-hard-to-swallow goop. The flavor is a yes, but the texture is a big fat no. This opinion makes me a bit of an outlier at…

Cinnamon Bun Pecan Pie

It’s no secret we are pecan pie fans around my house. Actually, by “we” I mean Jason, and by “fans” I mean “he’s a fanatic who will eat pecan pie for every meal and then, to wash it down, he’ll put it in a blender and drink it like a smoothie.” Every year for his…

Cinnamon Bun White Hot Chocolate

I think I dreamed this cinnamon bun hot chocolate. I woke up one morning with the idea fully formed in my head. Was it divine inspiration? Crazy pregnancy cravings? My crafty husband whispering delicious things in my sleeping ear to plant them in my subconscious?* *For the curious among you, Jason actually does talk in…

TWD: Brown Sugar Bundt Cake

Back in my pre-blogging days, when I was a young idealistic lass, I thought that when I had a food blog, I would bake yummy foods and take pictures of them and write about how yummy they were. My eyes sparkled with naivete and hope. Ah, foolish youth. Instead, what I mainly write about is…

TWD: Fold-Over Pear Torte

What a strange little hybrid dessert this was. It uses pie dough, but it’s baked in a springform pan. The filling is chopped fresh pears, and pecans, and dried apricots. It’s all held together with a vanilla custard, and then the pie crust is partially folded over the edges. So many things going on! It’s…
