Apple Butter Tacos with Mango Cilantro Salsa and Cream Puff Pudding Cake

I recently partnered with M and M Meat Shops to create some fun and festive recipes for the upcoming holiday season. And what fun it was! I scouted out their nearest location and, after visiting their website and reserving my items online (which is a great feature!), I went to visit their storefront. The staff was very keen to help me out-  ...

In this case, I made a carrot cake with lots of walnuts and pineapple, topped with a meringue crust and sandwiched between  ...

Gooey Apple Crumble Bars

Oh these are bad. These are dangerously bad. I fully regret posting these on here because it means that somewhere else in the world, someone will give them a try and have the same experience. Pure unadulterated food bliss that results in consuming the entire pan. But oh it’s worth it. The cake-y crust supports a heaping pile of spiced  ...
