Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Pie is one of my reasons for living. You all know this.  I have been so spoiled by my Dad’s homemade pie my whole life that I will almost never eat pie that isn’t homemade.  I’ll occasionally eat a piece of pie from Snohomish Pie Company, which is a wonderful little local bakery here, but… Continue reading Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Toffee Chocolate Chip Bars

My almost two year old daughter Phoebe is quite a handful.  She’s really giving me a run for my money in a way that her two older siblings did not.  She has a very mischievous, get-into-absolutely-everything, help-myself-to-anything-in-the-pantry, try-to-run-into-traffic, jump-off-all-the-high-things, streak that I am quite certain comes from my Dad’s side of the family and that… Continue reading Toffee Chocolate Chip Bars

Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies

I realized recently while pinning some Christmas stuff in May (yes, I am sick) that I have a huge board chock full of Christmas recipes, many that I make, but few that I have taken the time to photograph and blog and share with you. Oddly enough, November and December are the two months of… Continue reading Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies

Okay you guys, how cute are these cookies? I mean, seriously.  Look at the powdered sugar snow and the little tree topper stars.  I die. Not only are these cookies tasty and light as air, they are beautiful, festive, and gluten free to boot. It’s kind of nice to throw in a light, airy cookie… Continue reading Christmas Tree Meringue Cookies
