Scotch Essentials

Sewing in general can be a difficult task for many. And although I may know the basics, such as repairing a rip or stitching up a button, when it comes to hemming, I rather take it to the professionals. But sewing any of these tasks can be time consuming.

Whether your tailor is closed for the day or a button fell off as soon as you walk out the door, you need a quick fix ASAP. Fret not, introducing Scotch Essentials: a line of no-sew wardrobe quick-fixes designed to help easily deal with lost buttons, unraveling hems, and so much more!

Apple Crostata

Quick and Easy Homemade Apple Crostata Recipe Perfect for Last Minute Thanksgiving Dessert

Apple Crostata (Italian) or Apple Galette (French). However you want to call it, is another easy peasy dessert recipe that is perfect to make throughout the fall season and Thanksgiving. A Crostata/Galette is essentially a free-form pastry baked without a pie pan or tart ring. Keep in mind, this is by no means my own creation. I've seen a few Apple Crostata/Galette recipes and tweaked a few ingredients towards my liking.
