    Caramel Ginger Date Cake

    Although it’s pretty much the warmest winter on record here in Michigan (only one day below 20 degrees so far, which is crazy), it’s still winter. It’s cold and gloomy and that call for comfort food. Comfort food in the form of this Caramel Ginger Date Cake.

    Salted Caramel Apple Pie

    Apple pie is my husband’s favorite pie. Maaaaybe even his favorite dessert. He considers apple pie to be the ONLY pie one could ever want. When I made my Cinnamon Roll Apple Pie, a veritable GENIUS recipe, he scoffed and said that he preferred regular ol’ apple pie. Well, peeps, I think this Salted Caramel Apple Pie has made him a believer.

    Chocolate Caramel Tart

    Happy first day of Fall! Something about Fall makes me want to put caramel on all the things. While I wouldn’t necessarily call this Chocolate Caramel Tart a seasonal recipe, I’m perfectly happy to enjoy this recipe all year long. 🙂

    Chocolate Salted Caramel Hazelnut Tartlets

    The sun is finally shining again in Texas today! I should be baking something up and using the fabulous light to take some pretty pics for the blog (my photography is a work in progress, and a lack of natural light doesn’t help).  Instead, I’m getting another recipe on the blog and binge watching Gilmore Girls (I’ve never watched it! Can you believe it?) This recipe is delicious and decadent: Chocolate Salted Caramel Hazelnut Tartlets.

    I’ve been on a bit of a salted caramel kick lately. You know what? I haven’t received a single complaint about it. Not a one. I think this recipe concludes my string of salted caramel recipes, at least for the time being. 😉

    Caramel Banana Cream Pie

    It’s still chilly and gloomy in Texas. The forecast keeps promising sun, and it just doesn’t happen. Being from the Midwest, I’m accustomed to having plenty of gloomy winter days, but I definitely prefer the sunshine. In addition to the gloom, I also have a headache and can’t seem to get warm. It’s one of those days that you just know that your immune system is about to be taken out. BUT…there’s pie. I’m about to wrap myself in a second blanket and have a slice of this Caramel Banana Cream Pie.
