Simple Stuffing

Originally published on November 3, 2009 I had only made turkey stuffing once before making it this time for Thanksgiving. And that first time I made it, it was a total flop. Needless to say, I was holding my breath every step of the way with this one. But, when I pulled it out of […]

Classic Sugar Cookies

Originally published on December 7, 2010 I’ve had this recipe crammed into my recipe box for so long that I can’t even remember where I got it from. And it’s covered with so much crusted flour and icing drops that I can barely even read it anymore. I like to think it’s these kinds of […]

Roast Turkey

Originally published on December 19, 2011 This is the way I’ve seen my mom make turkey ever since I was little; and you can put all the glazes and exotic spices that you want on a turkey and I’ll think it’s delicious (because I really love turkey a lot!) But it still won’t be as good as just slathering […]

Bunny Cupcakes

They’ll also make your day just that much tastier as  you nibble away on them. Happy Easter, everyone! Ingredients: For the cupcakes: 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 1 1/2 teaspoons baking […]

Halloween Hot Dog Mummies

Originally published on October 30, 2017 I have to admit something. I don’t like Halloween all that much. I didn’t even like it that much as a kid, but all the candy really did seem to help. Today, I still turn to food on this holiday and while I may not be pulling out a pillowcase and […]

Santa Veggie Tray

Originally posted on December 7, 2017 Having a big holiday party this year? Don’t you dare buy one of those prepackaged veggie trays that are overpriced and well, let’s face it, a little boring. Not when you can get super creative and make a Santa veggie tray instead! This is one that I did for a family […]

Caprese Salad Wreath

Originally published on December 20, 2017 The holidays can sure be stressful. So I guess it’s a good thing that we have all the wonderful food surrounding us to help us forget about those long lines, the many Christmas presents we still have to buy, and all the other stuff that goes with the holidays. But just […]

Figs Stuffed with Goat Cheese

Originally published on December 28, 2017 Fresh figs are really hard to find around here. I’m sure if they were more accessible, I’d make them (and eat them!) a whole lot more than I do now. They’re one of those fruits that is almost like candy to eat, but so much better. I made these […]

Cranberry Crescent Bites

Originally published on November 20, 2018 If you’re hosting a holiday party this year, or just want to give your family a special treat before the big dinner, these Cranberry Crescent Bites are perfect. Best of all, they’re super easy with just a handful of ingredients and a very quick cook time. Dried cranberries and cream cheese […]
