Plum Crumble Bars

Plums are that perfect transitional fruit that feels like Fall is on the horizon while still being a summer staple. After coming off a weekend where the heat index was about 104F every day, the brisk 86F felt like a change in seasons. While I’m not ready for apple butter everything just yet, It was […]


Gingerbread Cake with Lemon Sauce

My mother has been talking about this cake since last summer. “Kristi, you need to make a gingerbread cake with lemon sauce. You gotta do it.” Apparently, this cake was a staple in her childhood. A moist cake full of seasonal spice, topped with a dollop of whip cream, and drenched in a flavorful lemon […]


Peach Cobbler Ice Cream

Every time I turn on the radio, I feel like I hear that Justin Bieber song about peaches down in Georgia. Needless to say, I got peaches on the mind. Which is how we ended up on peach cobbler ice cream. Peach cobbler is one of those desserts that I just adore. Even a bad […]


Great Grandma’s Lacy Cornbread

A few years ago, my grandmother was going through her things when she came across her mother’s old 8″ cast iron skillet, rusted and coated in a thick layer of gradoo. Not really much of a cook at this point, Grandma gifted it to my dad. He was so excited he told me the next […]


Two Ingredient Dough Blueberry Sweet Rolls

We discovered the wonder of two ingredient dough a few years ago. While a lot of people find the appeal in that it’s low fat, I really love the simplicity of two-ingredient dough. I usually always have self-rising flour and greek yogurt on hand, so I always am able to make this dough. The simplistic, […]

White Chocolate Fudge with Bourbon, Caramel, and Pecans

Y’all, I don’t know who I should write my thank you letter to, but it hasn’t hit 90 in Pelham in like a month. I mean, it is mid-July, and I was comfortably wearing jeans during the day today. But, August is coming, which means a no bake recipe is important to have in your […]


White Peach Cobbler

There is something about white peaches that tells me summer is here.  White peach cobbler is the perfect start to summer with the sweet, spicy filling covered in the cakey topping.  Ugh, so good. In Birmingham, we have the Alabama Farmers Market.  You’ll also hear me, and others around here, call it Finley (because it’s […]

Blueberry Galette with Bourbon

Produce season is upon us in the South. Every grocery store I walk into seems to be discounting their berries left and right. I love a good sale. When the grocery store puts up blueberries for 2/$4, I’m obviously going to buy more than one person can eat by herself. Luckily, nothing tastes quite as […]


Lemon Lavender No Churn Ice Cream

A day in the nineties paired with enough humidity that your skin is damp within minutes, and you’ll find me hightailing it back inside to enjoy the comfort of air conditioning and a cold drink. Sometimes, though, that is not enough. I want ice cream. But when it’s that hot, I don’t want a super […]
