Well… have you missed us?
We’ve taken a bit of a hiatus over the past few months from blogging for some very good reasons! A lot has happened during 2014, almost all of it unexpected.
This weekend, I just wanted to make Smores. I was craving the gooey marshmallows, the melty chocolate, and crispy graham crackers. However, it was around 25 degrees outside, and making a fire or using the grill was out of the question. So, I did a simple Pinterest search for “smores desserts” and found this recipe for a Smores Casserole by Shawn over at I Wash, You Dry. The results were amazing and a huge success with some friends who came over to enjoy it!
How many of you had pecan pie with your Thanksgiving dinner last week? I’m guessing quite a few! The Herb family also had this delicious pecan pie that I baked using my great grandmother’s tried and true recipe.
Recently, I was having company over and knew I needed to have a dessert ready to serve. However, I’ve been trying to eat gluten-free for a few weeks now, and I hadn’t yet discovered any good looking gluten-free desserts. Then I stumbled across Martha Stewart’s recipe for this flourless chocolate cake, and it made me (and my guests) wonder why anyone would ever make regular cake again!
I know it’s pretty obvious that we’re pie people around here. I mean, seriously…we’ve got Chocolate Pie with Meringue, Nestle’s Chocolate Chip Pie, Chocolate Caramel Pecan Pie, Key Lime Pie with Oreo Crust, Butterscotch Pie…yay for pie! But really, out of all these delcious pies, this blueberry pie concoction of mine has people moaning with pleasure and fighting over the last piece. And what a better way to use up all those great summer berries?
