Skillet Tarheel Pie

This weekend we headed north to celebrate my dear friend Charlotte’s upcoming wedding. Charlotte, lover of many foods other than wings but especially wings, was treated to a special food centric shower. Guests were encouraged to bring the couple a gift for the kitchen, and to fill it first with food for the party (actually […]

Lemon Sour Cream Pound Cake

Last week, to much fanfare (in our living room),¬†The American Cookbook was released! All day Monday I got texts and emails as people got their preordered books in the mail, and it feels overwhelmingly amazing to know that something I worked so hard to create is out there in kitchens around the world. It’s thrilling […]

Pear & Pecan Pie

This Christmas we bounced all around the northeast visiting family from every branch of our tree. We started in Wilmington and visited Morehead City, Virginia Beach (twice), Lansdale PA, and Lorton, VA. We saw all of our parents, most of our siblings, both of our nieces, and in an experience that was more rare than […]

Rum & Coke Cake

Last week Dan celebrated his 29th birthday and in true Rosemond-Hoerr fashion the partying started on Thursday and ¬†continued through lunch today. Our dear friends came into town from across the country and we ate, ate, drank, ate some more, and ate. It was so much fun, one of the best weekends we’ve had with […]

Vinegar Pie

This season has made me realize how truly, incredibly, overwhelmingly blessed I am. It’s been a hard few months, full of happiness and good fortune and time with family but also loss and heartache. It’s always a balance, but every once in a while something amazing happens that reminds you that you are loved. As […]

Sugar Pie Pumpkin Pie

This time of year, everything is pumpkin. Pumpkin lattes, pumpkin soup, pumpkin beer. And while I occasionally indulge (especially in the pumpkin beer category), I tend to stay true to the classic- pumpkin pie. The first time I tried my hand at making a pumpkin pie from a pumpkin and not a can of Libby’s […]

6/100: Grilled Peaches with Ice Cream & Caramel Sauce

Summer is, without argument, the most magical season. Long days, warm nights, endless possibilities and freedom. Summer brims with nostalgia and potential, all wrapped up in the warm glow of the long sunlight evenings. I pack my days and nights full with people and parties and travel and salt and sand and laughter until before […]

5/100 Pender County Blueberry Lemon Cake

Inevitably every year I find myself in a bit of a culinary rut during the months of March and April. After the bustle of the holidays, the excitement of roasting root vegetables, and the inevitable sugar high of National Pie Month (religiously observed in our household), the remaining months of winter feel slow and uninspired. […]

Beignets

Last month we traveled to New Orleans for my sister Lauren’s wedding. We’ve adored Bradley from the start and it was a joyous experience watching on as they took this big next step together. Even better was the opportunity to celebrate these two with our families in the city that they love so much. As […]

Buttermilk Pie

Strictly speaking, siblings are one of life’s greatest joys. Fifteen years ago I was spinning a completely different tale, but these days I have nothing but appreciation and gratitude for my brothers and sisters. A few weeks ago when I went up to Chapel Hill for the Our State Magazine launch I had some free […]
