Book-cakes

PinterestFacebookTwitterStumbleYummlyEmailWhat’s the use of having a blog, if I can’t get some shameless plugs in now and then?? 🙂 I wanted to share something I made today for my good friend, Joann Sowles.

Halloween Pumpkins

What’s awesome about this particular farm is that their blackberries are thornless, thus making it a perfect kid activity. My daughter refuses to eat blackberries when I buy them...

The One

PinterestFacebookTwitterStumbleYummlyEmailWhen I think of a really good pie, it usually involves a buttery, flaky crust. Hands down, it’s my favorite kind.
