Pumpkin Layer Cake With Maple Pecan Clusters


I had a hankering for a really delicious pumpkin layer cake. I reached for the brown sugar. Nope, we need something more. We need jazz hands. I reached back in and grabbed the muscovado. Yes. Yes, this will do just fine. I didn’t want to make a pumpkin layer cake with a million jazz hands because that can be overwhelming.…

Irish Coffee Cake


Is it a cake that tastes like Irish coffee or is it a coffee cake with Irish coffee vibes? Or are they the same thing? I think they’re different but this seems like more of an in-person conversation for us to have…perhaps over Irish coffee and cake?

Hold onto your boxer shorts, I’m doing a giveaway. I’ve always thought about doing one and some really fab companies have offered me product but, honestly, it sounded like a lot of extra work. So when Teri from NoCrumbsLeft approached me and asked if I wanted to do a joint giveaway of a Lagostina copper saucepan (see it up there in…

{ five-spice cranberries three ways }


five-spice cranberries cranberries + cocktails + appetizer I like a recipe that will serve multiple purposes. For instance, when I make tri-tip, you can always expect beef tacos the next day.
