When it came time to thank our realtor for her part in our dream, I expressed my gratitude in my favorite way: through butter and flour. I made a pie with our Hilltop house on the crust and baked it with love. You don’t have to carve your dream house into the crust to make this pie, but I do hope you use this recipe to thank someone special in your life.
I inherited my love of entertaining from my mother and her mother before her. Their balance of grace and hospitality inspired me to experiment in the kitchen and to share my table. This passion for sharing and bringing people together is the heart of my book, The Gluten-Free Grains Cookbook.
don't let the "whole-grain, gluten-free, and vegan" part scare you away. I know the immediate reaction is an automatic "ew, gross." I know this because I have heard this reaction from friends upon hearing these categories. These cranberry hand pies will satisfy your butter-loving friends too, which makes them a practical choice for holiday baking.
As Thanksgiving rolled around this year, I found myself at a loss on the dessert front, which is normally my creative arena. I love the flavors of the holiday season, but I crave novelty. Thankfully, I found inspiration in this chocolate cranberry pecan tart, but being stumped made me think. When does tradition lose its comfort and become boring and/or monotonous?
