What is Mincemeat?

 I always eyed mincemeat pies suspiciously when I was a kid. Was it a pie made of meat? Why was it so dark and weird looking? Why wasn’t anyone else eating it?...more

The Best Pie I've Ever Made: Peanut Butter and Biscoff Pie

I'm pretty sure this is the best pie I've ever made. I wish I had a good story to go along with it. I could pretend that it's a secret family recipe, passed down and well loved from generation to generation.

Eggnog Challah French Toast Bread Pudding.

 I love eggnog. Some people say it's very rich, and that you can only have a tiny glass, but I don't have that problem. I'll intentionally not buy eggnog during Christmas, just so that I don't accidentally drink the whole thing.

I originally made up this recipe when I was in university and since then have adapted it, giving it a few tweaks along the way. I think at one point I had sour cream in the mix- which made the muffins wonderfully tender- but come on now, I don't have room for those extra calories anymore!...more
