Art of the Apple Pie
This is a classic all-American apple pie. Use both tart and sweet apples and the most flavorful ones that you can find. — Kate McDermott
Giant Soft Pretzel
This giant soft pretzel is simple enough for you to make with your kids and delicious to eat. Serve alongside cheese dip or trade the salt for pearl sugar and serve with a chocolate dipping sauce. — Angela Carlos
There’s nothing like a good old-fashioned hamburger — so juicy and full of flavor that you don’t even need to add cheese. If you’re a fan of this classic cookout fare, this recipe is for you. It’s simple and delicious.
Sometimes you just need a banana split — for dessert, or maybe for dinner, but more likely for breakfast. There's a banana, so it's healthy right? Of course. This recipe includes chopped almonds, chocolate syrup, and a maraschino cherry, but you can really use any toppings you want. — Jane Bruce
