It's hard to believe that tomorrow is the first day of December and I'm so excited because it begins my month-long posting of Christmas advent treats! Each day until the 25th I'll have a new tasty holiday treat for you to enjoy. The first one is really unique and creative, so be sure to check it out tomorrow.

Now. This pie!

This pie is my family's evergreen favorite. The only good excuse we need to make it is to satisfy a craving - although it shows up at almost every holiday gathering and family function. It's been gifted as an expression of appreciation, but also in times of celebration and bereavement. It is almost our family's currency of love.

We are just days away from Thanksgiving and even though I'm not doing the bulk of the cooking this year, I've got a hefty menu of desserts to make. I'm looking forward to going to my parent's house for the feast. Mom always has a lovely place setting for her dinner guests with colorful leaves and other natural elements. That's what inspired these almond pinecones. You can use them as edible decor at each place setting or bag them as takeaway gifts. Or you could just serve them on a dessert tray next to the pumpkin pie.

This fall I began a new tradition of ordering myself a batch of apple cider donuts from Vermont. I could make them myself (and I have) but the cider mill that produces them "the old fashioned way" makes the luxury too affordable to pass up. They are delicious as-is, but I've found a few new ways to amp up their cinnamon-spiced goodness!

Hello friends and Happy Weekend!

November seems to be slipping by so fast! Things have been quiet on the blog lately because I've been immersed in new projects. One of those projects was this Sweet 16 cake! I made it for a relative that lives in Atlanta, and so when it came time for cake delivery we both drove about 2 hours to meet in the middle. I'd never delivered a cake that required more than a 40 minute drive, so this was a real nail-biter for me! After the cake was handed off for another 2 hour drive I said a little prayer, which I believe worked. It arrived at its destination relatively unscathed.
