Orangettes: Candied Orange Peel

The first time I had Orangettes it was during my study abroad in Paris. Our hotel was situated above a candy store whose delectable chocolate air wafted up through our open windows every day. On the occasion that I finally wandered in there, the clerk assured me I had to sample their signature chocolate candy:

Maple Bourbon Caramels

When something is so nice you have to make it twice within a week, you know you’ve got a special recipe. I was up late one night watching the food network and they were doing some sort of Holiday Cookie Showdown when one of the contestants started making caramel for their cookie. I realized at

The Best Chewy Gingerbread Cookies

I love a good festive gingerbread during the Holidays, and nothing gets me more excited than spending a cold afternoon prepping cookie dough while I listen to Elf play in the background. This year instead of making 1000 traditional gingerbread cookies I opted for the low and slow approach to baking to create these chewy gingerbread

Christmas Cookie Recipe Wreath

So, as I go to post this recipe I must kick myself, because of the 100+ Christmas cookies I made last year, I deleted ALL of my photos on accident documenting all the hard work that had been endured making (and eating) said cookies. The only photo that remains is one photo that I saved

Orange Cinnamon Sticky Buns with a Pecan Citrus Glaze

It finally happened. I finally found myself with enough time and just the inspiration to make cinnamon rolls from scratch. Now, as far as breakfast pastries go, cinnamon rolls aren’t the most difficult thing to whip up ingredient wise but they do require a lot of time. However, these orange cinnamon sticky buns were worth

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

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

Peach Walnut Bread

We’ve lost the humidity in the city so I think that officially means it’s Fall, right? I know we have about two more weeks of “summer” but I’m already pulling out my sweaters, donning over-the-knee boots, and adding cinnamon and allspice to my seasonal breakfast bread recipes, like this peach walnut bread I made last

Blueberry and Lavender Peach Pie

The beginning of this pie recipe doesn’t start like most. There were no nostalgic thoughts of grandma cooking something on Sunday morning after church nor a dreamy memory of picking blueberries in North Georgia with family a year prior. No, it started on a mundane semi-annual cleaning supply run to the store.

Strawberry Raspberry Galette

I’ve turned into a full-time food blogger lately. Everything that has come across this blog and my Instagram seems to entirely revolve around food. My creativity is sparked whenever I dream up some crazy new recipe typically inspired by whatever is fresh. This particular recipe was inspired by my trip to South Georgia to go
