Salted caramel is heaven for those of us who love the whole sweet and salty flavor profile. These banana muffins are the best recipe all by themselves but I took them to a whole new level with the streusel crumb topping and the generous drizzle of homemade salted caramel sauce. Don’t you dare make another batch of banana bread when you can whip up these gems of perfection instead!
Squash season has officially arrived and if you haven’t discovered spaghetti squash yet, you will love me for this healthy low carb recipe that is additively yummy! It is simple to prepare this vegetarian side dish by roasting the whole squash in the oven, scraping out the inside and tossing it in some garlic butter, parmesan cheese and fresh herbs.
Pie crust – it can be the star of your Thanksgiving dinner or a complete disaster! I have the BEST recipe for homemade pie crust you will ever make. I found this one years ago from Cooks Illustrated and it change my fear of making my own pie crust into a love for it. I make the pie dough days ahead of time, keep it in the refrigerator and roll it out when it is time to bake my pies for holiday dessert.
Whipped cream is one of the happiest ways to top any great dessert – pie, cake, ice cream, crumbles or just eat it with a spoon! The only downfall of this heavenly creation is that the shelf life is very short unless you prepare it in a way that makes it stable for days. My stabilized whipped cream tops all our Thanksgiving pies and Christmas desserts and I make it days ahead of time! The hard part is keeping my kids out of the bowl of fluffy perfection before it is time for dessert.
