Grandma’s Strawberry Pie

I have so many family recipes that are near and dear to my heart, including this pie. Every summer we would go visit my grandparents in Michigan for 2 weeks and I remember this strawberry pie being a staple dessert in my Grandma’s fridge. This time of year I look forward to the Florida strawberries Grandma’s Strawberry Pie

Raspberry Crumb Bars

Growing up, I used to love picking raspberries in my Grandpa’s garden this time of year. The berries were bursting with sweetness and he would turn them into delicious pies and jams. My mom picked some for me at a local farm a few days ago and I was so excited to enjoy them! I Raspberry Crumb Bars

Pumpkin Bread with Maple Chai Glaze

It’s a good time of year to stock up on canned pumpkin because it’s most likely going to be on sale. It adds wonderful flavor to this quick bread but I also love using it in pancakes, cookies and even chili. Serve this bread at your upcoming holiday brunch and prepare to wow your guests!

Apple Cake

Fresh, locally grown apples are hard to beat this time of year. The farmers markets are loaded with a variety of them – each one unique in taste, texture and color. Typically for baking you want to go with a more tart apple like Ida Red or Granny Smith, but any variety will work here. Apple Cake

Cardamom Orange Rice Pudding

Rice pudding was one of my Grandma’s favorite desserts, so I always love making it. It’s creamy and comforting and super simple to make. The cardamom adds a wonderful depth of flavor and the orange zest adds brightness. I used golden raisins, pistachios and shredded coconut as my add-ins, but any dried fruit or nuts Cardamom Orange Rice Pudding

Mixed Berry Almond Galette

Puff pastry is one of my favorite ingredients to work with because it’s so versatile and delicious. The buttery, flaky crust on this galette pairs beautifully with the creamy fruit filling and toasty, crunchy almond crust. Serve this warm topped with vanilla ice cream or gelato, or simply dust with powdered sugar. Preheat oven to Mixed Berry Almond Galette

Lemon Pie with Gingersnap-Walnut Crust

The holiday season is here and that means lots of delicious sweets. While pumpkin pie is the traditional dessert to serve, I like providing something more unique. The creamy lemon filling in this pie pairs beautifully with the gingersnap crust. The crystallized ginger whipped cream makes it extra special! Preheat oven to 350.
