Happy new year, friends!  I hope that your holiday season has been bright and happy, filled with amazing people and delicious food.  Christmas morning was spent eating sweet and sticky monkey bread on our parents bed {no Christmas tree this year as they’re preparing to move into another house} as we unwrapped our homemade gifts […]

Homemade Reeses Peanut Butter Cups

Homemade Reeses Cups

With the flurry of activity during the holidays, it’s easy to get swept up in the insanity of it all but I always insist on making homemade gifts for all my friends and family.  The only want to maintain a semblance of sanity here is to keep it simple, {especially if you’re building several gift […]

Cheesecake Red Velvet Cupcakes

When I couldn’t decide whether to bring pumpkin pie or pumpkin cheesecake to a holiday party last year, I brought my pumpkin pie cheesecake instead.  These cheesecake red velvet cupcakes were created in the same spirit.  They feature a bottom layer of classic cheesecake with a moist red velvet cake layer in the middle with […]

Soft Dinner Rolls

Soft Dinner Rolls

I know that some consider a piece of bread an afterthought when having supper but for me, it’s crucial to have it present at most {if not all} meals.  What can I say?  I’m a carb-girl.  However, if it happens to be a roll that’s hard and dense, I’d rather not have it at all. […]

Hot Cocoa Cookies + Homemade Marshmallows {No Corn Syrup}!

Hot Cocoa Cookies

Have you ever tried a homemade marshmallow?  It wasn’t until college that I had my first taste.  Until then, I was firm on that I disliked this chewy goop, excluding the ones found in a box of lucky charms, of course.  That year could possibly be marked as the marshmallow-insaned year of the comedically gigantic marshmallows, […]

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies Soft Cookies

Thick double chocolate cookies that are soft and cakey with a peppermint crackle.  These just scream Christmas to me and while I weighed out my ingredients, folding this into that, I finally allowed myself to fully immerse in the Christmas spirit {as I feel fairly strongly about not allowing Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday, to serve […]

Mini Pumpkin Pies

Mini Pumpkin Pies

I recently had the dilemma of transporting several pies to a holiday party and lo and behold 7 of said pies had apparently experienced a bit of turbulence and their delicate flaky crusts had crumbled.  The silver lining here was that I was able to hoard the buttery bits for myself, done in the spirit […]

Foolproof Gravy

Foolproof Gravy Recipe

If you can master this simple technique, the options are endless when it comes to tailor-making gravy with a personalized touch for Thanksgiving supper {or anything that requires gravy–can that be everything, please?}  I love playing around with this depending on what mood strikes.  This can range from anything from thyme to cognac {my personal […]
