A warm and crusty loaf of garlic bread is one of my favorite foods to eat. I believe that a really good loaf of bread doesn't necessarily need butter but could be enhanced by it. I also love lightly toasted bread with a bit of butter or just bread straight from the oven (I've burned myself more than a few times during the excitement of a loaf just out of the oven that smelled wonderful).

We are getting into apple season and these Apple Pie Ice Cream Sandwiches are a perfect treat while it's still warm outside but you're ready for an autumn flavored dessert. The sandwiches are made with snickerdoodle cookies encasing creamy homemade apple pie ice cream dotted with fresh cinnamon apples and a little brown sugar. If you don't have an ice cream maker, that's okay, I will suggest some other ways to make this recipe a little easier (and quicker if you need to save some time).

This is one of the easiest peach crisps you will ever make. I spent years being completely recipe dependent on dessert and baking recipes because from a scientific standpoint I was afraid to change anything in the recipe for fear of it not turning out the way I wanted it to. Needless to say, I got over that fear at least a few years ago and I've never looked back! Playing with recipes and tossing ingredients in a bowl as I scribble down the amounts on a scrap piece of paper is one of my favorite activities now. Have you never tried it? You should!

This beautiful bowl of vegetables and rice is definitely worth trying if you have never tried it before! The vibrant flavors of the mushrooms, carrots, and cucumber really come out in this dish and combine so well with the slightly runny egg yolk and brown rice. I think I love this meal and will make it often. The fresh scallions on the top really add to the "fresh" flavor of the dish that keeps you coming back for more!
