Eggnog Spice Cookies

Eggnog Spice Cookies

  Eggnog is one of those love-it or hate-it things that’s pretty divided into those two categories. Some people get SO excited for the holidays because of eggnog, and others cringe at the thought of it. And while I wish I could commit to a side, I’m honestly in the middle. Sometimes, I crave eggnog [Read more >>]

Rudolph Cookie Bites

Rudolph Cookie Bites

I just love these adorable, edible reindeer! When it comes to crafts, I’m best with food-related crafts. I’ve always been envious of the people who can take glittery picks and sparkly ribbon and create gorgeous wreaths. Or those who can take random household objects to create amazing, one-of-a-kind doodads, like a chandelier made of Mason [Read more >>]

Oreo Ornaments

OREO ORNAMENTS!

If it were socially acceptable (or if my family would allow it) I would be putting up Christmas decorations the day after Halloween. Christmas is my favorite holiday by far. I love the feeling in the air, I love shopping for presents, wrapping them, blasting Christmas music, baking Christmas cookies, and decorating my house like a [Read more >>]

Marshmallow Hot Cocoa Pops

Marshmallow Hot Cocoa Pops

One of my favorite things about the holidays is the FOOD. Let’s get real here. No one really eats a boatload of peppermint or stuffs their faces with gingerbread during any other time of year. And if we’re being honest, I only really care about things like hot cocoa and truffles when the temps drop [Read more >>]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Toffee

Chocolate Chip Cookie Toffee

I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m just not going to maintain a diet during the holidays. My attempts will be futile and I should just give up now. I mean, let’s face it: yesterday I kinda sorta engorged myself on turkey, stuffing, and the like. And today, I’m having leftovers of the same meal [Read more >>]

Turkey Rice Krispie Pops

Turkey Rice Krispie Pops

I can’t even believe that Thanksgiving is Thursday! (It is just me, or does it seem like time speeds by faster than ever when you’re an adult?!) As a kid, time seemingly crawled through the holiday season. It seemed like the days were longer, stretching time infinitely longer than it should be before Christmas. But [Read more >>]

Dessert “CONE-UCOPIAS”

Dessert Coneucopias

Did any of you guys ever watch Semi-Homemade with Sandra Lee when it was on the Food Network? I was weirdly obsessed with Sandra Lee’s show. One, because her recipes were great — I love that semi-homemade approach to cooking. And two, because her tablescapes were always so stunning. But I had to wonder: WHERE did [Read more >>]

Pecan Pie Truffles

Pecan Pie Truffles

Believe it or not, there was once a time in my life where I disliked pecan pie. (Yeah, it was kind of a dark time.) For some reason, it just didn’t ring my bell the same way Dutch Apple or Banana Cream did. I figured I’d just live out the rest of my days drinking [Read more >>]

Salted Caramel Mocha Bundt Cake

Salted Caramel Mocha Bundt Cake

A List of Things I Love About Fall… 1. The changing of the leaves. Those red trees? Phenomenal! 2. Boots, boots, boots! Easily my favorite type of shoe, yearround. 3. The chillier weather. It’s so nice to snuggle up! 4. Rain. 5. Daylight Savings Time. (Did you remember to turn your clocks back!?) An extra hour [Read more >>]

Chocolate Swirl Cinnamon Buns

Choc Swirl Cinnamon Buns

Recently, I was traveling across the country and during my travel, would have to be in four different airports. Because of this, and the fact that my travel day started at the ripe ol’ time of 4am, I decided when I got to the first airport, I’d splurge on a food-court cinnamon roll. You know [Read more >>]
