Winter Spiced Apple Crisp for Two

Apple Crisp For Two. One apple baked in brown sugar, salted caramel, cinnamon and butter underneath an crunchy buttery topping.  So I’ve always wondered what the differences are between fruit crisp, crumble and cobbler – all I knew (before some research of course) is that all of them described baked fruit with a type of…

Caramel Apple Butter Hand Pies

Tender, flaky all-butter pies dough and filled with warm cinnamon spice apples and dark intense salted caramel. The best thing about them? They’re your own personal parcels of goodness that you don’t have to share.

12 Days of Baking: Tart in Bloom

Happy December! ‘Tis the season for holiday table inspiration. Food memories are more inextricably intertwined with this month than any other. Emotional attachments that defy culinary justification persist. When I started planning my Christmas baking lineup I was almost at a road block. This is my third year doing the #12DaysofBaking series, and I wanted to expand beyond the…

Deep Dish Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie

Everyone loves a good old chocolate chip cookie. Now take that cookie, roll it into one giant dough, stuff it with Nutella, and you’ll get the mother or all cookies. Deep Dish Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie. Who could resist a warm chocolate chip cookie served in a dish with warm chocolate oozing out of…

Cherry Almond Clafoutis

When it comes to dessert, I’ve always been a sucker for French baking. To me, I think they bring out the purest form of baking, be it with the use of the ingredients, the techniques or the flavors, every creation makes you just a little bit happier. And what more would you want from a dessert?…

Heartwarming Winter Desserts.

It’s finally raining! Well, maybe it was just a few drops of rain on my windshield as I drove back home from work last night, but it rained! If you’re wondering why I’m this excited about the rain, and if you just started following my blog, then here’s a small recap. I moved to Qatar…

Perfectly Minty Grasshopper Pie.

Me: I just made grasshopper pie, for St. Patrick’s day. Sister: But, you’re not Irish. Me: So? Desserts do not discriminate. They accept you, regardless of your culture and origin. Ever since I can remember, I’ve had an unexplainable obsession with anything that has to do with Ireland. I’ve been trying to go back through…

Apple Galette with Salted Caramel Sauce.

I miss home. You probably wonder where that is. I’m wondering about that myself. What do you do when home is no longer a place, but a state of mind? An abstract thought. A bubble you turn to when you need a peace and reassurance. You hang on to little threads and dreams of a…

Home Sweet Home… And Pumpkin Pie.

So apparently there are two types of people: those who pick pumpkin and those who favor apple as their favorite Fall flavor. I’m clearly in the minority as I fall into the apple/cinnamon category! However, with my Pinterest feed is rapidly filling up with Fall, pumpkin and the color orange, my sister continuously nagging about…

Chocolate Pudding Pie and a Whole Lot of Improvising.

Warning: This is not an info post. This is me, actually baking again. So yeah, I finally got my stuff together and got back to baking. I haven’t exactly been away from the kitchen, but I’ve basically been cooking for survival. I don’t know what exactly it was that kept me away from baking, I…
