Pineapple Guava Apple Crumb Pie

A few Saturday nights ago at our church we had an activity, it was named Ugly Sweater and Tie Pie Night (try to say that fast 3 times).  I was debating what pie to take and choose a creation of apples and pineapple guavas with a crumb topping.

Christmas Cashew Toffee – guest post

My husband, Craig, makes the best toffee in the whole world.  Almond Roca doesn’t even come close nor anyone else’s.   Although the recipe is from Better Homes and Garden New Cookbook (new meaning published in 1981 – it was a wedding gift), anyone can get it, there is just something different about his.  I […]

Pineapple-Guava Sweet Bread

We received pineapple-guavas in our CSA box about 3 times. The first time, it was 2 or 3 and we sliced them open, scooped out the  fruit, and ate it.  The 2nd and 3rd time we received about 6 to10 of them, so I decided I needed to discover something I could make with this […]

They are filled with amazing goodness of oats and apples flavored with cardamon, cinnamon, nutmeg, and almond extract.  I adore almond extract, the flavor is amazing and addicting.  I discovered this sweet recipe […]

One of my favorite candies is whoppers chocolate malt balls. I know, I’m not to refined in my taste. (But yes I will argue that European, especially German, chocolate is the best!) And Nate is a HUGE fan of malted milk. He loves adding it to milkshakes, and its convenient because we have to GIANT things […]
