Salted Caramel Banana Cream Pie



In my last post, I talked about all the pies I've tried lately, and we're just getting warmed up! I don't know what it is about the fall that makes me want to make pies all the time. Maybe it's the fact that Thanksgiving is in less than a week, and pie is still what I consider the perfect Thanksgiving dessert! It's a go-to, must-have, and everything in between.

Today, I wanted to share with you this amazing Banana Cream pie that just so happens to have salted caramel inside! That's right! Caramel and bananas are made for each other, and salted caramel is my favorite of all, so naturally, this one had to come together asap for this Thanksgiving pie-making season.

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie


Whenever I think about Thanksgiving dinner, my mind used to always goes straight for those soft, warm mashed potatoes, the oozing rich brown gravy, and of course, that glorious centerpiece turkey. However, lately I've been thinking a little more towards the end of that bounteous dinner - the final touch, the grand finale: the PIE! Thanksgiving just wouldn't be Thanksgiving to me without some pie at the end! Pie is is definitely a signature dish of the classic Thanksgiving table - ours just wouldn't be the same without it every year! 

This year I thought I'd share more of my go-to pie recipes, tried-and-true by me in the kitchen. I've already shared my Perfect Pie Crust recipe (sure to be the only pie crust recipe you'll ever need this pie-making season!), my Best Peach Pie (which really is the best), S'mores Brownie Pie, my French Silk Chocolate Pie, Pear Crumble Pie, and Pumpkin Pecan Pie for you to try and fall in love with. 

Over the next couple weeks I'll be sharing some more pie recipes that will not only carry your dessert sweet tooth through then end of your beautiful Thanksgiving meal, but pies that could easily be used for Christmas as well (yikes, I know saying the word "Christmas" before Thanksgiving makes some of us shutter, but planning a meal as special as Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner takes time. 

Thankfully today and tomorrow I'll be sharing not one, but TWO pie recipes that are super low-maintenance, and more than sure to make your mouth water! Today's recipe is Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie. THIS one was by far my favorite! (be sure to come back tomorrow for my Salted Caramel Banana Cream Pie! 🍌🍌🍌

Candy Cookie Pie


Halloween is in ONE WEEK!!! Can you believe it?! I swear we just barely jumped into October and here we are in the final week. Our home is supposed to be finishing up it's building process next month, so flying through October is not a problem for this gal. 

However, my husband and I are yet to find a Halloween costume. Eek! 

I realized last week that I shared this recipe on Studio 5, but I never shared the recipe on my blog. Shame, shame on me! It's a great one, and perfect for Halloween leftover candy.

Pumpkin Roll

The most perfect combination of pumpkin spice cake and soft cream cheese frosting in every bite. This pumpkin roll comes together very quickly, and my only regret is not doubling the recipe!

Pumpkin Swirl Brownies


These pumpkin swirl brownies are something else, my friends. Super rich & moist, and they have the perfect taste of brownie and pumpkin in every bite. Plus, I can never get over that gorgeous swirl on top. It almost pained me to slice into them because they were just too pretty!

Sparkling Roasted Peach Lemonade


Guys, Fall is here. I can't quite figure out whether I'm super happy about this, or kind of sad. I LOVE summertime. There is always so much to do, and my kids are usually completely worn out by the end of the day from playing around outside as much as possible. I'm going to miss the days at the pool, picnics at the splash pad, and long summer nights. However, fall is quite lovely, and I'm already super excited for all the fun events we have planned in October as a family. 

But just for one second, while we are still in the thick of peach season, I wanted to share one more lovely peach recipe to hang on to summer, but also enjoy the juicy fruits early fall has to offer. Harvest season has never tasted so good!
