Happy (almost) Valentine’s Day, Delish Dish! The part I love best about Valentine’s Day is that it isn’t just a holiday for you and your honey. You can celebrate Valentine’s Day with all the loved ones in your life! And what better way to celebrate than with gorgeous love-themed recipes which I am more than happy to share!

YOU GUYS. Today is National Pie Day, a.k.a the best and only food holiday worth celebrating. If you’re a regular reader, you know that I’m a huge pie fan. In any form, basically. I joke (not actually joking) about having pie for my future wedding dessert. So I thought I’d peruse some of my favorite blogs and find the best pies for you to help your celebrating!

I’ve had this Crack Pie from Averie Cooks for a while now and every time I see it can’t wait to try it out! With an oatmeal cookie crust and so much butter, this pie is perfect for an intense sweet tooth!

This summer, I dedicated a whole post to the amazingness that is s’mores desserts. Sally’s Baking Addiction brings in the big guns with this crazy-delicious S’mores Brownie Pie. Yum-o.

Key Lime Pie always reminds me of my dad (one of his faves)! Your Homebased Mom‘s version of The Perfect Key Lime Pie looks absolutely incredible!

Why is it that anything in miniature always tastes better? I cannot wait to try Krafted Koch‘s Mini Blueberry & Meyer Lemon Cream Pies! Adorable and delicious!

Bakerita has brought us the mother of all desserts in this Raspberry White Chocolate Cheesecake Pie. This treat could work at Christmastime, but did anyone else think Valentine’s Day when they saw it? I would love to share this treat with my Valentine!

Have the best pie day ever, Delish Dish! Let me know how you’re celebrating in the comments!

With love and pie,

Happy Friday, Delish Dish! So I wore a sweater to work this morning, which, in my mind, means fall is here! One of my favorite annual traditions is going to the apple orchard each year and drinking incredible apple cider. So I thought I’d search around and find some new ways to enjoy apple cider, the great fall drink!

If you’re looking for a “grown-up” way to enjoy apple cider, you’ll love this Pumpkin Apple Cider cocktail. The Blond Cook combines pumpkin pie vodka, apple cider, and club soda for an easy-to-make fall drink.

Cupcakes are really the best way to satisfy your cravings. (They’re small so they have less calories, right?) Lady Behind the Curtain brings the best fall flavors in these Apple Cider Maple Spice Cupcakes. Yum-o!

If you’re a regular reader of my Friday Finds, you know how much I love breakfast foods. Add A Pinch combines everything that is good and holy in fall flavors and breakfast trends in these Apple Cider Waffles.

I’m all about trying new margarita recipes and when the weather decides to heat back up again, (because it always does) Fabtastic EatsApple Cider Margaritas will be the perfect way to cool off!

What kind of apple cider post would this be if I didn’t include a fantastic Baked Apple Cider Doughnuts recipe? Thanks, Eat.Drink.Love. for the great ideas!

Happy (almost) fall, y’all! Enjoy these yummy recipes and let me know what other fall flavors you’re craving!
