I've been out of town traveling the last two weekends and haven't had much time to bake, but luckily today was a pretty productive day. I can't wait to share what I baked with you all on Friday! Speaking of which did you see the Salted … [Read more...]

Salted Caramel Apple Hand Pies

Caramel Apple Hand Pies

Ordinary apple pie takes on a whole new flavor profile with these crazy delicious Salted Caramel Apple Hand Pies. Remember last week when I shared this Salted Caramel Sauce?

Chicken Tortellini Soup

Chicken Tortellini Soup

With that said I love soup, so I take full advantage of those rare cold days we have and make a big old batch to warm us up right. I'm pretty sure if we lived somewhere cold I would completely exist on soup and hot … [Read more...]
