Honey-Sweetened Blackberry Buttermilk Potato Pie With a Cornmeal Crust


I first realized how well mashed potatoes work in a pie when I made my maple bacon potato pie.   I love sweet potatoes as much as the next person (OK – a whole lot more than the average person), but I strongly believe that there should be a place at the table for Idaho® Potato pies as well.

When my contributor, Jessica, brought this Christmas pudding (originally called plum pudding) to my house for Jonathan to photograph, I wasn’t sure what to think.

5 Reasons to Ditch Eggnog and Choose Syllabub


I am going to go out there and say that syllabub is better than eggnog. I know you are going to call me on the whole personal preference thing.

Cheesecake-Topped Holiday Gingerbread


I love cheesecake-topped brownies and black-bottom cupcakes, so I thought, “Why not give gingerbread the same cheesecake treatment?

In Jess Touchette’s second contributor post, she shares the fascinating history of frosting and layer cakes.

My newest contributor is Jess Touchette – she’s a librarian and she’ll be sharing well-researched stories of the desserts that you know and love.

Simple, Sweet, and Sensational Sour Cream Cornbread
