Want to see a tableful of people light up like a bunch of 8 year olds? Serve caramel apples for dessert. Depending on how chill your crowd is, caramel apples can be an awesome—and totally unexpected—way to end to a Fall or Winter dinner party. I know, I know. Most people associate caramel apples with […]
Pssssst, hey you! Your goose is cooked! Mwahahahahahaha. Wait. Make that geese. I’ve been waiting for weeks to be able to say that. (It’s the little things. Such a dork, I know.) This is my first experience cooking goose. I’m super excited about how they came out. Let me tell you all about it and […]
Fall’s officially here, let the baking begin! Apple and cranberry is such a classic New England combo when it comes to Autumn desserts.

When you’ve already been going for 12 hours by the time 6 pm rolls around, sometimes convenience wins. That said, when I do have the time, I definitely always make my own crust. Nothing compares.
Somebody help me: After 35 years, I think I’m developing a sweet tooth. Tragic, right? Get over it and join the rest of the world, Mouse. I know. All my life, I’ve always been a salty snacker.
