Easy No Crust Apple Pie

This recipe for Easy No Crust Apple Pie was passed down to me from my grandpa on my mom’s side (we called him Papa).

It’s super easy to make with kids, requires less than 11 ingredients, and is a great dessert to make to get rid of all the leftover fruit you have in your fridge and on the counter!

Depending on the vessel you bake it in will depend on whether this turns out more “pie”-like or “cake”-like, based on how tall the “crust” is given space to rise. As you can see by my pictures above, we used a shorter, stouter baking dish, so it turned out more “cake”-like this time. However, if you were to make this in a traditional pie tin or glass bowl, you would get more of a shallow “crust” with this recipe instead.


Copycat Sonny’s BBQ Cornbread

My most popular recipe on the blog, this one is a crowd favorite! Went to Sonny’s BBQ* years ago and fell in love with their cornbread, this is my homemade spin on their classic taste.
We have also recipe-tested multiple gluten-free cornbread mixes over the holidays to see which ones would work best with our existing recipe, and have added those substitutions below to recommend when making this Gluten-free as well!

*Please note: My interpretation of this recipe is in no way sponsored by Sonny’s BBQ.


Tangerine Pepper Jelly

This Tangerine Pepper Jelly was a perfect way to use the tangerine puree from our Columbian Puree project (see more about that here). Check out the recipe below for an amazing spread for breads, charcuterie boards, and more!


Creamy Coconut Orange Jam

This was a perfect way to use up some awesome pantry staples I had and the last of the orange puree from our Columbian Puree project (see more about that here). Check out the recipe below for an amazing spread for breads, cookies, desserts (like this Orange Apple Crumble) and more!


Guava Jam

Check out this recipe for Guava jam we made through our Puree Project (check out our blog about that here) with Wislla Distribution! This was absolutely delicious put into cookies and pastries!


Microwave Lemon Curd

Now, I hear you, I know what you’re thinking – this looks nothing like lemon curd. That’s because instead of lemon juice, we used one of the amazing fruit purees from our friends at Wislla Distribution, so what’s pictured above is Naranjilla (a Colombian citrus) fruit curd!


Gluten-Free Buttermilk Biscuits

Our recipe for a homemade, gluten-free version of the buttermilk biscuits your southern grandmamma would make! One of the things my mom missed when becoming gluten-free were things she could eat at breakfast bread-wise, so being able to recipe test and find a great gluten-free biscuit alternative to the normal recipe we use was exciting.
