Berry Lime Popsicles

Happy Fourth of July! I don't know about y'all but summer is definitely in full swing here. It was 92 degrees at 10am this morning! Even though it doesn't feel like summer, since we can't do many of the summery things we would normally be doing, the heat certainly reminds us of the season. One... Continue Reading →

Banana Chip Muffins

I've finally joined the club. I might be the only person who hasn't made banana bread (or muffins in this case) during this pandemic. I have embraced pandemic baking in general (see our other Pandemic Eats), though I also haven't joined the Make-Your-Own-Sourdough Club yet either. My lovely friend Mary Catherine brought me some fresh eggs from... Continue Reading →

Berry Pavlova with Chocolate Drizzle

The coronavirus pandemic has taken a lot of things from us collectively. Lives, health, daily freedoms, jobs, money... Some of these things are obviously more important than others. One of the things that it has taken is simultaneously trivial and powerful - our celebrations. No one is dying for lack of a birthday party, but... Continue Reading →

River Doughnuts

Growing up, we would visit my grandparents at their home on the Rappahannock River for days and weeks at a time in the summers. We'd spend all day in the water and when we weren't in the water, we were eating. The best was when my grandfather, known for his sweet tooth, would make us... Continue Reading →

Pumpkin Chip Bread

December's cookbook of the month is a classic - Joy of Cooking. Originally written  and self-published by Irma Rombauer in 1936,  this quintessentially American cookbook has sold more than 18 MILLION copies. We don't own it, but I knew someone in my family did, so we borrowed a copy of the 1997 edition from my... Continue Reading →

Cranberry-Lime Pie

In case you thought we hadn't shared enough pies recently... here's the THIRD of the pies I made for Thanksgiving. I was eyeing the Cranberry Crumble Pie from Sister Pie, but when I read it in more detail, it just had a few too many steps for me to tackle along with the other pies.... Continue Reading →

Pumpkin Pie

Happy Thanksgiving! We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday! We both love Thanksgiving, and Selim is extra happy this year because I made him his favorite Thanksgiving treat - pumpkin pie! Selim has very strong feelings about pie and dessert in general, and this pie was deemed worthy of Thanksgiving! (I actually made three pies... Continue Reading →

Salted Maple Pie

So it seems like our cookbook club is the only thing that's keeping us blogging this fall... I guess that's a good thing! We're still really enjoying participating and are loving the variety of cookbooks selected. For November, we're cooking (or baking as it were!) through Sister Pie, by Lisa Ludwinski. The selection is certainly... Continue Reading →

Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Happy Labor Day Weekend! The unofficial end of summer has arrived. You'd be hard-pressed to know that here though, given that it's going to be sunny and in the upper 80s. We're spending our weekend at "The Land" as we call it - in rural Amherst County. While we still have the last remnants of... Continue Reading →
