Gluten-Free Triple Ginger Cookies

Buckwheat sounds scary if you are trying to avoid gluten. Despite its name, buckwheat is not wheat. It's a seed rather than a grain, which means it's gluten-free. Buckwheat flour gives these cookies a delicious flavor and a soft, chewy texture. You probably won't be able to tell these are gluten-free cookies; they are just... Continue Reading →

Chewy Spiced Apple Cider Caramels

I don't have many food posts these days, but I felt I really needed to publish this recipe. Nearly all the recipes and their derivations on the internet are just plain wrong. So let's fix that... These chewy caramel candies are perfect to make during the winter holidays when apple cider is easily available. I've... Continue Reading →

Pumpkin Pie from Sugar Pumpkins

Another favorite pie of mine is pumpkin pie! I've perfected the recipe years ago and would love to share it with you! Earlier this year, we received a bounty of fresh pumpkins from our in-laws. We roasted and pureed the pumpkins, divided the puree into 15 ounces, and froze it in ziplock bags. This has... Continue Reading →

Apple Crumble Pie

Thanksgiving means time to bake some pies. I'd like to share some of my pie recipes. First recipe I'd like to share is delicious dutch (or crumb top) apple pie. I'm of the opinion that unless you are making a mile high deep dish apple pie, putting a crust on top really is unforgivable. The... Continue Reading →

Fruit Crisp in a Jar

I've never been able to manage the awkwardness of bringing a fruit crisp to a party or gathering. Serving always seems like a challenge and usually it all ends in a disaster. I recently stumbled across a great idea that makes the convenience of a fruit crisp even better, serving it in individual mason jars.... Continue Reading →

Chewy Spiced Cookies

There's something special about baking cookies around the holidays. It has been awhile since I've made any cookies (call it my total lack of a sweet-tooth), but I thought I would make these delicious chewy spiced cookies. I love soft cookies and these hit the bill. I also love the cinnamon, ginger, and clove spices... Continue Reading →

Rhubarb Pie Filling

After moving this summer and no longer have immediate access to large freezers, I had to think of a solution for all this wonderful rhubarb I have. I've canned apple, cherry, and peach pie filling, so I thought maybe I could can rhubarb pie filling too. My rhubarb crisp is essentially a pie filling, so... Continue Reading →

Cherry Pie Filling

Couple weeks ago I was just giving myself more work than I could complete in a week. I decided to hunt down tart cherries so I could make my own cherry pie filling. I learned some great things about tart (or sometimes called pie) cherries. Utah is the second largest tart cherry producing state in... Continue Reading →

Rhubarb Custard Pie

I’ve become a multi-tasking master it seems these last few weeks. I’ve been juggling a lot and trying to stay on top of everything that needs to get done. Luckily, I have put in a lot of the effort to have things around the kitchen to make meals a little easier. About a month ago,... Continue Reading →

Apricot Cherry Crisp

UPDATE (August 15, 2014): In my efforts to preserve the harvest, I froze apricots and cherries hoping I could make apricot and cherry crisp later in the year. For the apricots, I simply washed them and sliced them in half to remove the pit. I froze them initially on cookie sheets in my freezer, similar to... Continue Reading →
