Chronicles of a Domestic Dilettante. As you all know, I am very much a beginner in the kitchen.

Chronicles of a Domestic Dilettante

So when my friends assigned both appetizers AND dessert to me for this year’s Thanksgiving, I was in full panic mode as I didn’t want to ruin our entire Thanksgiving dinner. Dessert, afterall, is the most important part of the meal. Furthermore, I was instructed that store-bought items were not welcome – because we all know I was already planning a trip to Whole Foods. After consulting Pinterest for some Apple Pie recipes, I came across this recipe for Apple Pie Baked in the Apple – I thought it was a nice blend of simple instructions and a gourmet look. Quick Easy Delicious Healthy Vegetarian Vegan Dessert Recipes. No-bake energy bites.

I probably should have poured a nice stiff drink recipe for you all on this loveliest of lovely tax days.

The toasted marshmallow, the melted chocolate, the crunch of the graham cracker. You put them together and it’s bliss. We love them so much, we eat them year round, we’ve even grilled marshmallows in our wood burning fireplace, over our gas stove, and made them in the microwave in a pinch. So naturally a s’mores pie would be the next logical step ; ) And it couldnt’ be easier. I started with making the graham cracker crust and baking it until golden.

White Chocolate Key Lime Pie. Is anyone else as giddy as me that today’s the first day of spring? I’m absolutely ecstatic! That means all this gorgeous weather we’ve been having here in New York isn’t just a cruel prank. It’s actually the start of something awesome!
