There’s nothing like a good dessert to add a sweet finish to a wonderful meal.

Baked Apple Pie Cobblers with Brandy Caramel Recipe

It’s September, so it’s time to say goodbye to fresh berries and welcome in apples and pears.  By the time the summer is over, I’m ready to switch over to the next seasons produce so I have no problem moving into fall and winter.  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like winter, but I have no problem eating the fresh vegetables and fruit that it produces.  Since we are in the apple season, I thought it would be super cool to make some single serving Baked Apple Pie Cobblers with a Brandy Caramel Recipe.  I like the idea of a…

Homemade Rose Apple Pie Recipe with Cinnamon and Streusel

I’ve been dying to make an apple pie like this for the longest time, but again finding time to do it is always impossible.  Since I want to do a lot more videos on my site I’ve made it a point to put it on my calendar once a week just to make sure that I follow through with it.  My daughter started school last week and the stressers of that alone has been beyond overwhelming for me.  To be honest I’ve been getting migraines for the first in my life and I’m not sure if it’s work, or my…

Lemon Blueberry Muffin Recipe with Chia Seeds

It’s that time of year again where the kiddos are heading back to school and the laziness of those long summer days subsides.  One of the things that’s always been a challenge is just getting our daughter to eat something for breakfast.  It’s one of those meals that offers like 3 things: eggs, oatmeal or cereal, and as you can imagine those options can get pretty old within about a month’s times.  To keep things interesting I try to change it up dramatically by making things like shakshuka or scaling it back for a guaranteed winner with things like this…

Lemon Tart Recipe with Mascarpone and Fresh Berries

As the summer winds down, I’m doing all I can to soak in the last drop of sun and heat, and the abundance of in season fresh berries.  I never realize how much I take utilizing fresh berries in my cooking for granted until about mid-January.  There is no denying it- I’m a summer produce fan and wish I could have access to it all year long.  However, I’m a man of principle when it comes to cooking with in season produce so you’ll almost never catch me eating things that aren’t at its peak. I am almost always a…

Single Serving Layered Baked Alaska Recipe

This post is sponsored by the National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association, all opinions are my own. If you took a look at my freezer, you might be shocked at the amount of ice cream in there. Or, if you’re a frozen treats lover like me, maybe you wouldn’t! But seriously, if you like ice cream as much as I do, then you’re in for a real treat with this simple recipe for Baked Alaska. The first recipe for Baked Alaska was made in New York City to commemorate Alaska becoming the 49th state in January of 1959 (Hawaii became…

Mixed Berries with Vanilla Crème Anglaise and Whipped Cream

It’s the season for barbecues, picnics, cookouts, and outdoor get-togethers – and I have the perfect dessert to impress your guests! This one is particularly patriotic, with gorgeous mixed berries (I used blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries), whipped cream, and a vanilla crème anglaise. You can make it ahead of time, so when it comes time to serve, you just assemble and sit back as your friends ooh and ahh over the sweet treat. The star of this dessert is the crème anglaise – a sweet, custard-like sauce that gets spooned over the mixed berries. It sounds fancy and intimidating,…

Berry Crisp Recipe with Homemade Caramel and No Churn Ice Cream

There are few desserts I enjoy more than crisp and cobbler recipes, so in the spirit of summer and fresh berries, I thought I would create a Berry Crisp Recipe with Homemade Caramel and No Church Ice Cream.  I like crisp and cobbler recipes because they’re just so easy to make and so incredibly versatile.  For instance, the same base of this recipe, this crisp portion, would go great with whatever fruit is in season.  I often make the same recipe, but I use apples or pears during the winter months to take advantage of the seasonal fruit.  While the…

No Bake Cheesecake Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches

A popsicle on a hot day. A s’more at a campfire. One of mom’s famous cookies on Christmas Eve. Sometimes food is just exactly what we’re craving. Drinks do it too. Cold lemonade after a day working outside in the yard. A glass of wine after never-ending day of work. A flute of sparkling wine to celebrate an anniversary or birthday. On Friday, these cookies were exactly what I was craving. After a long week, they absolutely hit the spot. There’s something so therapeutic about baking cookies. Maybe it’s the nostalgia of baking with mom or grandma, or the incredible…
