    A Special message of Thanksgiving Just the thought of the holidays arriving soon gets me so excited. Ekk! Can you tell?I can’t wait! I’m in love with this time of the year. It brings a smile to my face just thinking about my family sitting around the table together at Thanksgiving.   Like many, Thanksgiving is truly a time of gathering and giving thanks for all our loved ones and especially the food that we’re about to receive. As you guys might not have known, last Thanksgiving was the last holiday that I got to spend with my mom before she passed away. It was the last big holiday that my family and siblings spent together. Even although my family lived close by to our mother, I, however, did not. So on my end, it took some planning and saving to get my own family there for this special holiday.…

          Don’t you just love that pie season is upon us? Oh, just a thought about the aroma in my kitchen makes me want to start baking. Especially if it’s warm apple pie. It’s my favorite one. -And of course, it’s a must to add a scoop of vanilla ice cream as a topping. Oh man, it’s so good. There are so many different ways to use apples in a recipe and the list is long, but one thing is for sure, my Caramel-Apple Mini Pies is exactly what you want to try this Fall. These hand apple mini pies are super simple to make. In fact, they can be individually made or totally freezable if you make them in batches and save them for later. But I will warn you, these pies have a yummy flaky crust and will not last long enough in your home. I’ve…

      It’s the first day of Summer and all I can think about is the Fourth of July in only a few weeks. Our independence, our freedom and how much that means to me especially as years go on. With everything around us seems to be going wrong lately, I want this upcoming Fourth of July celebration to be extra special for me and my family. That is why I decided to bake one my favorite desserts to serve them. In my eyes, nothing says let freedom ring more than my All-American Apple Pie. Yes, it might be original but no one turns down apple pie especially my family. It’s so heavenly when it’s served warm then topped with vanilla ice cream don’t you agree? My recipe is super simple and takes not much time to prepare. First, you will need a few ingredients. I purchased a package of pre-sliced…

I’ve been so busy planning for our family Thanksgiving trip and even more so, motivated to start cooking. Being away from my family during the Holidays can be difficult. It’s been five years since the last time we were together so you can only imagine the excitement that is building up. For the past three years, my family and I along with our neighbors, get together before the Holiday season starts. It’s a fun night where we swap pies and even desserts. It’s similar to an ornament swap but totally edible. During our pie swapping, each family chooses a number and the one with the lowest number will pick any pie or dessert they want. It’s a barrel full of laughs!…
