World’s Easiest Apple Crisp

One of our fav things about living in New England in the fall is apple picking! It's still pretty warm here in Salem, Massachusetts, but we go religiously every year, whether the weather calls for...

Pecan Pie Bars

You gotta love a recipe that has 2+ pounds of butter. Talk about holiday decadence. So, I was looking for a pecan bar recipe that didn't include high-fructose corn syrup, which is actually harder to...

S’mores Fudge Pie

Happy fourth of July from beautiful Salem, Ma! Seeing that a lot of the Northeast is rained out this year and people are stuck inside, here's a great way to enjoy classic s'mores flavor if...

Mile-High Apple Pie

Chocolate Caramel Tartlettes

Hope you all had a fabulous holiday and new years! The Angry Chef and I spent New Year's Eve nestled in with the good folks from The Salem Insider and Rippin Kitten. The company was outstanding....

Italian Prune Plum Crumble

I have to admit: Until recent years, I was scared to death of these little things. Are you kidding me: "Prune" in the same sentence with "dessert?" No, thank you. I didn't get over it until well into my late twenties. And I'm still kicking myself that it took me that long.
