Peppermint and chocolate is a wonderful combination, whether you are eating a chocolate-dipped peppermint candy or stirring a candy cane into a mug of hot cocoa. Peppermint doesn’t get paired quite as often with vanilla, but I believe that the two flavors just might be an even better combination – especially when you are combining them in a recipe like this Vanilla Bean Peppermint Bundt Cake. The soft, tender cake is perfect for the holidays, when you want something with lots of seasonal flavor that isn’t so heavy it will prevent you from indulging in other cakes, cookies and candies that mig ..read more

Apple pie and pumpkin pie are staples in the fall, but they’re not the only fruit pies worth putting on your dessert table! This Double Crust Pear Pie takes advantage of in-season pears and showcases them in this lovely double crust pie as an alternative to – or an addition to! – your usual holiday pie line up. The filling for this pie calls for a lot of pears. Pears are absolutely delicious and underappreciated when it comes to baked goods.

Chess pie is an easy to make custard pie that is a Southern classic and a favorite in my home. Not only is the pie delicious, but it happens to be exceptionally easy to make. For me, that means I can whip one up on relatively short notice and easily play around with different flavors in my pies. This particular pie is an Orange Pecan Chess Pie, a variation on both a chess pie and a pecan pie that I think is a wonderful holiday dessert.
