Pretty Pumpkin Bread

I hate that I’m obsessed with pumpkin. Actually, I will not apologize for my craze because of this delicious, delightful, spicy, melt in your mouth bread. It’s for sure more like a cake but I’m going to call it bread so that you don’t feel too bad about calling it a cake, stigmas come with […]

A Collegiate Creative Thanksgiving: Pie Forever

Pie is good for you. It’s one of the healthiest food groups, didn’t you hear that they updated the food pyramid?

Growing up, my family had only ever made their own pie crust or pizza dough or other baked goods. Today, I have discovered the wonderland that is Pillsbury pre-made dough.

An Apple a Day

When I come back to Dalton to visit the Cowan Family, there is always a request to bake. My mom makes these really great chocolate chip cookies that she’s known for but it takes a certain Susan Johnson magic that I don’t have to make them authentic. We do try, but without her, we fail. […]
