Carrot-Coconut Soup

There are Christmas bins, boxes of presents to be wrapped/shipped and piles of laundry all over my house – but it’s not stopping me from making another pot of this velvety carrot-coconut soup for the second time in a week. I first got wind of this recipe while reading one of my favorite blogs, Orangette. I […]

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 […]

Gingerbread Pancakes

My sister and nieces came over Sunday and we had a cookie decorating party that left us frazzled, happy, and sprinkles everywhere. I made these gingerbread pancakes for breakfast to nourish all of our bellies in preparation for that mad cookie decorating and they were demolished in a matter of minutes. I’ll have to say, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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). […]
