Graham Cracker Swirl Cheesecake

Every year, my work sends us home with a free turkey for Thanksgiving. We already have plans for Thanksgiving day and the two of us can’t hope to finish twelve pounds of poultry together, so we decided to throw a spur-of-the-moment dinner party.  Okay, it wasn’t just the turkey, we also were given some beautiful […]

Pumpkin & Sorghum Molasses Muffins with Cinnamon Streusel Topping

During our honeymoon, we fell madly in love with each other an amazing sticky sorghum cake and cinnamon ice cream dessert from FIG in Charleston.
