Cranberry Orange Pie with Gingersnap Crust | Feast In Thyme

Cranberry Orange Pie with Gingersnap Crust | A Roaring Retro New Year’s Eve

I’m not the first to say 2016 has gone on long enough. I have a fantastic recipe for Cranberry Orange Pie with Gingersnap Crust to share with you today, but I’d like to say a few words about one of the latest losses. Feel free to skip ahead to the recipe though – I don’t mind.   Still here?   Okay.   This year has not been stellar in a broad sense, and social media by all accounts seems to agree. I created the Roaring Retro New Year’s theme with this thought in mind; a bit of nostalgic hope for good things […]

2016 Holiday Cookie Update | Feast In Thyme

2016 Holiday Cookie Update!

Every year, I end up making a lot of cookies for the holidays. I separate them out into little clear treat bags, tie them up with ribbons, and add them to gift baskets, boxes, and bags. This year (with the move), I told myself I’d refrain. My kitchen situation is only half set up, for one thing.

I was just incredibly spoiled in our Jersey City apartment, […]

Maple-Bourbon Pumpkin Creme Brulee | Feast In Thyme

Maple-Bourbon Pumpkin Crème Brulée | An Autumn Affair (Pt. 4)

Sometimes you need a dessert that impresses; one that looks like it came right out of a restaurant kitchen. Today’s dessert recipe is decadent, perfect for fall without being cliché, not terribly difficult, and best of all, naturally gluten-free – Maple-Bourbon Pumpkin Crème Brulée. As I mentioned in my last post, pumpkin pie was one of my favorite desserts growing up, second only to death-by-chocolate cake. As an adult, it’s very hard for me to pass up crème brulée when it appears on a restaurant menu. For a long time, I think part of that was because it was something […]

Apple Cider Bundt Cake with Sweet Brandy Glaze | Feast In Thyme

Apple Cider Bundt Cake with Sweet Brandy Glaze | An Education in Election Cake

Over the last few weeks I’ve been reading a lot about the colonial American tradition of the Election Cake – Have you heard about this? I pride myself on learning obscure, historical reasons to celebrate just about anything, but until I spotted articles on the topic a few weeks ago I had no idea this was a thing. There’s a been a lot of negativity this election season, and with November 8th so close (and with my love of history piqued), I immediately had to know more – and I knew I had to make my own cake to bring back […]
