DIY Pie Crust Shield

Today I’d like to share a trick that I have found incredibly helpful in the pie making process. I learned of it somewhere on the internet a few years ago, and it has been a life saver. See, when I first started baking pies, I would tear multiple little strips of foil to mould around… Continue reading DIY Pie Crust Shield


Sourdough Crepes with Turkey, Arugula, Artichokes, and Sun Dried Tomatoes

Spring is finally here!!! Though our winter hasn’t been especially nasty, I’m definitely feeling a change of season. It’s been fun the past couple weeks seeing more and more of the perennials I planted the last two years peeking out of our flower beds. Between picking up an additional three shifts at work last week… Continue reading Sourdough Crepes with Turkey, Arugula, Artichokes, and Sun Dried Tomatoes

Lemon Cream Crumb Bars

Happy Valentine’s day! This probably wasn’t the red and pink themed dessert you were expecting, but I didn’t end up trying anything new for Valentine’s this year.

Iced Oatmeal Cookies

Well, it looks like I’m in for another weekend home alone, as Alejandro is going up to the mountains for an ice fishing trip Friday night. Introvert that I am, I do enjoy occasional weekends alone. I’m generally able to get a lot more done and can enjoy a good rom com in the evenings… Continue reading Iced Oatmeal Cookies
