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 […]

Turkey Banh Mi Sandwich

If you are like me, Thanksgiving leftovers is almost just as exciting as looking forward to the actual Thanksgiving dinner. I mean, it’s the only time of year that eating pie straight from the fridge is acceptable in your pajamas. This year we are making two turkeys and in preparation of having a TON of […]

Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry sauce is one of those Thanksgiving dishes that has both loyal fans and passionate haters.  I am for sure a loyal fan.  I absolutely love the combination of that tart and tangy sweet sauce with the savory flavor of turkey.  The combo is such a good partnership that I almost want to give it […]

Sweet Potato Pie

As much as I love the flavor of pumpkin in my coffee, cookies, empanadas, granola, crepes,…the list is endless until I pump the breaks to a skidded stop once we get to pumpkin pie. I’m sorry, if you’ve been reading Eliza Domestica for a while, you’ll know that pumpkin pie and I just don’t jive […]

Cranberry Gin Fizzy

  We’ve been happily testing out holiday cocktails for upcoming parties here at Eliza Domestica headquarters. It’s usually a thing we do on Friday’s, once the week is over, the boys are in bed, and we have the weekend to look forward to. The cocktail making experiments don’t always turn out winners, but when they […]

Orange Scented Candied Cranberries

  What is going on here? Thanksgiving is one week away (OMG what?!). I have some major holiday prepping to do before we have family come in from out of town Monday and before we host a 15 plus person Thanksgiving feast. The countdown begins and I need to go into turbo mode and get […]

Valentine’s Day Treats & Crafts List

February is here and I’m still in denial. We have a fresh two week old baby and a two and a half year old toddler in our house – time, days, hours, minutes, have all been a blur. Our plans for Valentine’s Day will most likely be at home, with our little family. I thought […]

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. […]

How to Create the Perfect Cheese Platter

I’m a lover of all things cheese. That’s why a cheese platter is one of the first things I offer to bring to a party. There are so many varieties of cheese that I’ll admit it can be a bit overwhelming. I made a simple guide to help you pick the right cheeses and create […]
