cider apple cake and a celebration

This post is in honor of my favorite human on this planet. If you didn't know already, that's Rusty (my husband). I try to keep him out of the limelight, as he's a bit of an introvert, but this post (and this recipe) are for him. When we moved out of the rapidly growing, fast-paced [...]

This is a good one, a real original. What we've got here is a cool, crisp salad that works well in winter, filled with many of the flavors from my bacon apple nut brussies (a real hit with you guys), but with a unique twist. Brussel sprouts and apples are in season right now, and I just [...]

This recipe is not only delicious, it just so happens to be beautiful too! What makes this chutney even more awesome is the story that inspired it. My husband and I love New Years Eve, but we don't love to celebrate like most. Instead, we make a point every year of getting "off the grid" [...]

This stuff is good. But don't take my word for it, just make it and see. Who doesn't love anything with butter in the name?

But it's more than that; I also love Thanksgiving because every November, we get to start the holiday season off with a day dedicated to celebrating and acknowledging all of life's wonders [...]
