Let’s Talk Pecan Pie

  So let’s talk pecan pie. It’s a classic dessert that can be a little daunting if you’re not familiar with baking this delicious Southern favorite. Well, for that matter it might be a favorite of folks up north or even out west, but I’ve never eaten pecan pie in those places so I wouldn’t know. […]

    Saturday Sparks — Back-to-School Teacher Gifts

    It’s officially August, and that means back-to-school is just around the corner. The kiddos in our area are heading back what seems extra early to me this year, so it’s time to start thinking about teacher gifts. On this warm summer Saturday morning,  I’ve compiled a few ideas to help kick-start your creative spark, some simple and some more flashy (take a look at that school supply cake), but hopefully you find inspiration here to craft something fabulous for a special teacher.
