Caramel Apple Pie

You can never have too many pie recipes during the holidays! This one is a great spin on a traditional apple pie that adds caramel to really amp up the flavor. The recipe comes from Organic Valley and uses their Salted Butter, Whole Milk, and Eggs.   Note: I was sent a coupon to receive one Organic Valley product for free. Organic Valley is a co-op of organic farmers based in La Farge, Wisconsin. The cooperative was founded in 1988 and markets its products in all 50 states as well as Canada and Japan.  Organic Valley promotes organic agricultural methods, with each participating farm certified as organic by the National Organic Program. A problem I still run into when cooking/baking is I rarely read the directions all the way though before starting (a huge no no). So I made a completely different pie crust by accident because I got confused as to where the sugar and egg was supposed to go in the original recipe. Luckily it turned out fine (whew!) but for the original recipe, be sure to head over to the Organic Valley website. Ingredients: CRUST: 4 cups organic, all-purpose flour 1 ½ cups Organic Valley Salted Butter, cut into ½-inch … Continue reading

Gluten Free Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes

Gluten free baking. Does it terrify anyone else? Just me? Hm.  Whelp. I finally decided it was time to conquer my fear and try my hand at it. I was sent a copy of Kyra Bussanich’s new cookbook Sweet Cravings: 50 Seductive Desserts for a Gluten-Free Lifestyle which makes gluten-free baking seem not-so-scary. Kyra was the first gluten free  baker to win Food Network’s Cupcake Wars and has actually won twice overall so she knows her stuff! The cookbook is filled with really amazing sounding cupcakes but has a bunch of other mouthwatering baking recipes, including gluten free muffins, scones, cookies, brownies, and much more! As I was paging through the cookbook, I came across her recipe for Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes. I just had to make them! I used a bunch of OXO baking tools to create these cupcakes including the Cupcake Corer, the 6 Piece Measuring Spoon Set, and the 6 Piece Measuring Cup Set. These tools, along with many others, can be found during the month of September with these green stickers on them: For every specially marked item sold, OXO is donating 25 cents in support of pediatric cancer research as a part of its $100,000 … Continue reading

Pumpkin Pie Milkshakes

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, pumpkin season! My love of pumpkin flavored, well, anything, is well known among my group of friends. September means I am actually allowed to dive into my pumpkin obsession but it is still a bit warm so we will begin with a chilled version of my favorite gourd. I had a Pumpkin Pie Milkshake post on here from 2011, but when I switched my blog over to WordPress, the post got a little funky. So I decided to make the milkshake again with a few changes. Ingredients (makes 2 servings, multiply as needed): 2 cups vanilla ice cream 1 cup vanilla almond milk 1 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling) 1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ginger 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom 1 graham cracker (I used cinnamon graham crackers), crumbled
