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 →

Apple Cinnamon Galette

It's well documented on this blog (and if you know me in real life...) that I don't like/am mildly terrified of baking. But every fall, like clockwork, I feel the need to bake something with apples in it. It's a personal rite of fall passage, along with my need to decorate with tiny gourds, take... Continue Reading →

Cider Chicken with Savory Fall Fruits

We may have mentioned it once or twice, but we're big fans of wine in general and Virginia wine in particular. We used to live in Charlottesville, the de facto capital of Virginia wine country. There are many perks to living in Charlottesville, but definitely one of them is the proximity to the many wines... Continue Reading →

Pumpkin Roll

I've had this recipe pinned for a long time, because I knew Selim would like it, but I found it really intimidating. When I bake, things just never turn out as pretty as the should. {I blame my friend/old roommate Terry - she is an amazing baker/dessert wizard. I'm just assuming that when we lived together, any...

Spiced Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Some friends of our were getting together for a Sunday evening get together, nothing fancy, but of course we wanted to bring something tasty. Since it's technically autumn (even though it's 85 & humid here in SC), spiced cookies sounded delicious and with chocolate, you can't go wrong, right? Spiced desserts are fun to make...

Slow Cooker Cider Brats

Not going to lie. I'm mildly obsessed with fall. It's my favorite season. I may or may not have mentioned this in pretty much all of our posts since the beginning of October. Since this is our first fall in South Carolina, I'm learning that fall comes slowly down here. It's halfway through the month;... Continue Reading →

Finally Fall Chili

It's finally fall! We've been waiting through the hottest summer of our lives for the cooler temperatures to finally get here. We had to wait until October for all that, but at least my favorite month hasn't disappointed yet. While it seems like everyone else marks the changing of the seasons with a pumpkin spice latte,...
