Cherry Hand Pies

 Buttery, flaky and absolutely scrumptious hand pies are at the tips of your fingers. Starring cherries – these tiny pies couldn’t be sweeter!

I am finally making my pie debut with a recipe that is so easy to pull off, you won’t be able to stop making them. I mean, who wouldn’t be able to spare 10 minutes in order to enjoy a freshly baked Hand Pie?

All day long is what I’m thinking :).

You could definitely fill them with anything you prefer, but I have always had a thing for cherries. I have great memories of my grandparents and me driving to a cherry farm and picking them fresh from the trees. Afterwards, we’d always sit on their balcony and enjoy the fruits of our labor.

Before summer is coming to a close, I knew I wanted to create something that would bring back those fond memories of my childhood. Bite by bite, these amazing little pies are doing just that! [Read more…]

Cherry Vanilla Soda!

Hi There!

It’s hot, hot, hot outside! And I absolutely love it. We Midwesterners are used to drastic temperatures. I am pretty sure we can have an hour long conversation about the differing conditions. It is no secret that Minnesota is known for its massive amounts of snow and utterly cold temperatures in the winter and beyond. A little over three months ago we were hit with a massive snowstorm and thought that spring would never find its way. Back then I could only dream of temperatures that would allow me to step outside without snow pants, boots, and winter coat. Because I love summertime (don’t get me wrong, I can appreciate all seasons… can’t wait for pumpkin-themed-everything to get here), I am planning on soaking up every ray of sunshine as long as I possibly can, I decided to make you a drink today!
