Apple Pie

Apples, quintessential fall food, right? Sure they are great year round, but fall…fall is when they are at their peak. During my childhood, fall was always filled with apple desserts….not pumpkin.  Apples.  Apples were always in abundance because mom and grandma would take us apple picking.  A small orchard (and in all reality I haven’tContinue reading “Apple Pie”

Blueberry Lemon Dutch Baby and a Guest Post on A Culinary Journey with Chef Dennis.

Here we are, right on the verge of the unofficially last official weekend of the summer.  A final weekend to head to the beach, the neighbor hood pool, or maybe one final barbeque bash to sign off the summer.  Maybe some of you have already escaped for this weekend, stretching a three day weekend intoContinue reading “Blueberry Lemon Dutch Baby and a Guest Post on A Culinary Journey with Chef Dennis.”

Oh! and coffee….lots and lots and lots of coffee.  Which, thankfully goes very well with blueberry muffins and good music.  It is like they knewContinue reading “Blueberry Muffins”
