Bourbon Spiced Pear Tart with Cardamom Vanilla Ice Cream

I don’t know what came over me but this year I had one must-make item on my Thanksgiving Menu and that was a pear tart for dessert. I have made countless pies and galettes this summer, but I’ve been craving puff pastry goodness smothered with fruit and a tart just seemed like the easiest compromise

Tailgate Ready Ham Sliders

One of the greatest things about Thanksgiving is the amount of football that happens this weekend. All the great rivalry games are the Saturday that follows Black Friday, and I can’t wait to watch Auburn versus Alabama, Georgia versus GA Tech, and Ohio State versus Michigan. Since leftovers are inevitable from every Thanksgiving feast, I

Bourbon Prosecco Spritzer

I do not particularly gravitate towards bourbon as a drink. I’m a gin girl so opting for a dark liquor is a little out of my comfort zone unless of course it’s for the Kentucky Derby and I’m making a signature derby cocktail.  However, in an effort to try something new, I whipped up a citrusy

However as soon as we started inching our way up the blue ridge mountains on

Pumpkin Apple Muffins

Delicious. That is how I would characterize every Fall food out there. All of the food flavors are comforting and served with a pat of butter. Much like these muffins- full of pumpkin spice flavor, a couple of pats (or 1/2 cup) of butter, and teeming with flavor. They might not be the lightest, but

Butternut Squash and Spinach Quiche

How many times can I say “It’s fall, Y’all” before you all get annoyed? I am leaning towards I’ve got about 5 more real uses left and about 10 additional sarcastically ironic uses left. But in other news, I’m currently obsessed with Butternut Squash. I don’t think I ate it at all in 2016, and for

Grapefruit and Sage Fizz

Don’t tell the Plum and Thyme prosecco smash but the Grapefruit and Sage Fizz may be my favorite out of the two fall cocktails I’ve whipped up for you with Luna Nuda’s Prosecco.
