Recipes made for the holidays

Thanksgiving 2012 Menu

Way later than I anticipated on posting this, but better late than never right? I’m also winging it quite a bit this year. I don’t have any time for the new recipes I’m making to be tried out beforehand. I definitely do NOT advise doing this. Which also means, unfortunately, […]

A few years ago I was at my aunts house over the summer and watched her put a lattice top on a pie. I thought it looked way better than a typical closed top pie. That Christmas, I decided I wanted to make apple pie so I could use that […]
