Angelle’s Sugar Cut-Out Cookies

My BFF Joy is back to give us another favorite family recipe for the holidays. Sugar cookies are a weakness of mine, so when Joy had me try these years ago, back in college, I could have eaten the entire batch if left alone. Over the weekend we had a cookie decorating party with Oliver […]

Chocolate Hazelnut Shortbread Cookies

Wow, it’s already December! Last week was a blur. Our entire house got sick with a cold but somehow we managed to still host a 17- plus person Thanksgiving without a hitch. Well, maybe there were a couple of hitches, let’s be honest, but everyone left full and with two platefuls of leftovers each to […]

Mini Gingersnap Pumpkin Ice Cream Sandwiches

  The past few months I’ve been making a concerted effort to use up stuff in our kitchen before buying more. Not only have we saved money, but it’s also been fun making us think outside the box for using up leftovers and making new dishes with them (Insert these yummy ice cream cookie sandwiches). […]

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Pumpkin seeds

    I can’t believe Halloween is on Friday! This month has gone by so fast. Pretty soon the stores are going to be adorned with Christmas holiday decorations and the only place to find a pumpkin will be on the black market. Lucky for me I have a little stock pile of sugar pumpkins to get […]

Lemon Poppy Seed Cocoroons

  My BFF is in town this week while Mark is off on a business trip. We’ve done a lot so far.  Finished a 5k, went to my niece’s baptism, had laughing-fits from stories from our college days, finished more bottles of wine than I would like to admit, baked, cooked, and made time to […]

Breakfast Cookies

We have about a week until my due date and I’ve been nesting like you wouldn’t believe. I wish this urge to clean and purge old belongings came naturally, and on a regular basis. I made these breakfast cookies to take with us to the hospital. I thought they would be nice to have on […]

Oreo Peppermint Bark

  I’m sure everyone at this point is at the tale-end of Christmas mayhem, with last minute gift shopping, wrapping and baking. Or at least I am. Yesterday I made batches of homemade marshmallows and gingerbread men to box and send off as gifts. Earlier this week, it was batches of this goodness. This one […]

Muddy Buddies

There was a time growing up that Muddy Buddies® snacks were always around for Christmas. My aunt made them every year and it’s a flavor that instantly takes me back to my childhood. There came a point, not sure if it’s once all the kids turned into teenagers, that Muddy Buddies® disappeared from holiday functions. […]

Pumpkin Pie Cookies

This recipe is from my friend, Heather, over at Heather Likes Food. I remember my mouth drooling over these last year when she first posted them. I made plans to make them, but it never happened. I was not going to make that mistake again this year. I’m sure some of you already know, I’m […]

Candied Birds Nest

With Easter quickly approaching I figured I’d better get as many treats in as I can. I made this for a party I hosted last week. I’m crazy about butterscotch so this was right up my alley. Only three ingredients needed to make one super easy and festive treat. This recipe got me thinking about […]
