I’m not the biggest fan of pumpkin pie. I know it’s the traditional pie served for Thanksgiving. But I’m not and have never been a huge fan of pumpkin. There’s something about that residual squash-like flavor that throws me off in a dessert. However, I am a huuuuge fan of pumpkin spice flavor. Yes, I’m being ridiculous. But it is what it is. I’ll take pumpkin spice in my coffee, bread, cookies, anything but actual pumpkin pie… until this recipe. Tada! This Pecan Honeycomb Buttermilk Pumpkin Pie (say that five times fast!) is light, luscious and honestly the best pumpkin pie I’ve ever had. The tartness from the buttermilk masks the squash flavor and makes the filling super light. Then there is the honeycomb pecan crunch. Since the pumpkin pie is smooth and creamy, I needed to add something crunchy to contrast that texture. This crispy pecan honeycomb is the perfect foil to the creamy pie.Read More

So about 6 years ago my husband and I decided to take a 2 day road trip down to Atlanta to visit my cousin Soupbelly and her family. We packed up a small rental car (too small if you ask me) and took our then 9 month old son, my sister and our dog, Penny down the east coast. North Carolina was our first stop and it was there that our minds were blown by this tiny breakfast sandwich shop in Raleigh. Like seriously... mind blown! Their fried chicken biscuit sandwich was so good, we haven't stopped talking about it in 6 years. So this year I went on a mission to find this recipe and boy, it's not easy. I've tried other biscuit recipes and they just weren't the same. Until I came upon a newspaper article from The Daily Tar Heel that had the basic outline of their recipe. Granted it was for a huge batch of biscuits (5 lbs of flour huge!!) but it was something I could work with. Thank goodness I did, because baby, these Copycat Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen Buttermilk Biscuits...are something to talk about!Read More
Sweet blueberries with a hint of lemon, bright corn and crunchy cornmeal, this Chia Blueberry Sweet Corn Cobbler is a taste of summer in every bite.
Most recipes for fruit desserts are loaded with sugar and cornstarch, both of which are not so good for my babies. So looking for a way to make these jammy desserts without all the sugar put me in a jam.... I couldn't help myself. Until I discovered Chia Jam!Read More
