Pomegranate & Mint Moscato Punch Cocktail Recipe

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post for Myx Fusions. All views and opinions are my own. A few weeks ago I was contacted by someone representing Myx Fusions, the spirits brand backed by the one and only Nicki Minaj. Being a fan of her music and having heard the words “Myx Moscato” thrown into many […]

Savory Pumpkin Bread Recipe

One of my pet peeves with some pumpkin recipes is when they don’t use the entire can of pumpkin puree. (Let’s face it—most people aren’t roasting their own pumpkins.) After the end of making said recipes I’m always like, “WTF am I supposed to do with the rest of this pumpkin now?” That’s why for […]

How to Make a Glazed Ham without a Recipe

Glazed hams are another one of the many staple foods usually found at my family’s dinner table during the big three holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter). If done correctly, it always comes with a delicious, baked-on glaze that makes it flirt with your tastebuds. You can buy a premade ham glaze from the aisles of […]

Cranberry Sauce Corn Muffins

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching. As much as it’s important to get set for the big feast, it’s never too early to start thinking about the meals to follow. I enjoy the traditional Thanksgiving meal as much as anyone, but one person can only eat leftovers for so long. That’s why I came up with this […]

How to Make Roasted Garlic

Roasting garlic is a super simple way to get some great flavor for you to add to your dishes. The roasting mellows the flavor and brings out the garlic’s sweetness, similar to what happens when you caramelize onions. Roasted garlic is great spread on some crusty bread, mixed in with soups and stews, or used in […]


The day that many of us have been anxious about is finally here—election day. I don’t know about you, but this election season has been particularly trying and I’m ready for it to be over and done with. In order for anything to be accomplished, though, it’s important for everyone to get out and VOTE! […]

Apple Cranberry Lattice Pie

PIE!!!!!!!!!! Just look at this beautiful apple cranberry lattice number—there’s a reason why this post has a few more photos than some of the others. This makes a great dessert for the holidays or even just a regular Tuesday. I did this photoshoot one morning before work, so I can personally attest that it’s also […]

How to Make a Lattice Pie Crust

Here are step-by-step photos and instructions for how to weave a lattice crust for a pie. I made a diagonal pattern with random-sized strips, but you can use these same instruction to adapt for a more traditional lattice pie crust. I used my flaky pie crust recipe with butter and shortening to make the pie dough. […]

Salted Caramel Sauce Recipe

I was looking for a salted caramel sauce recipe the other day to go along with an apple dessert I was working on. I looked through a few different variations that I found on Google, but settled on this recipe from Bobby Flay and the New York Times. I chose it because it was one […]

Apple Cider Slow Cooker Pork

Disclosure: This recipe was originally created for Pillsbury. I’ve been cooking for nearly three decades, operating this lovely food blog for seven years (thanks Facebook for the reminder), and I have never used a slow cooker/Crockpot before in my life. Rather, I had never used one up until a couple of weeks ago. I was […]
