I love the holidays especially Christmas and New Year’s because I get to see my entire family! I’m talking 60 of us who love to indulge in food and drink. But can you imagine having to plan food for this many people, and for multiple parties? Crazy, right?Read More
Is it time for eggnog? It most certainly is, but what if you don’t really like eggnog? Like me. I like the flavors of eggnog, but something about eggnog just weirds me out. After all these years I just can’t get over it. SO I made a version of “eggnog” that I can sit and sip with a smile.Read More
Listen up, people! You will want to make this at your next party!!
I’ve had this black truffle butter that I picked up from Whole Foods before Thanksgiving. I used it to make these herby truffly smashed potatoes for our family. Originally I was going to post the recipe for those potatoes on the blog, but I decided to try out an easy app using the same flavors. We had so many dinner rolls leftover from Thanksgiving so that is how the idea for a biscuit pull apart bread evolved.Read More
Boy, oh boy did I eat and drink a lot for Thanksgiving! Well let’s get real…I’ve been eating and drinking a lot for the last couple of months. I love this time of year because I get to load up on comfort food, mulled wine, and baked treats but my body definitely needs a break.Read More
There are so, so, SO many holiday cocktails out there! A lot of them use cranberries and champagne, but I’m going to give you another recipe anyway! My version of a holiday mimosa has a fresh cranberry syrup (it’s more of a jam, but either way it’s SO good….even my 3 year old was licking it off of a spoon!) that is spiced with crystallized ginger and fresh rosemary.
So serve these up for Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day….okay, you get the point ;)Read More
FINALLY getting this veggie burger recipe to you! There aren’t too many ingredients that go into these delicious burgers, but I have to preface this blog post by saying that if you aren’t brown then you may not have all of these ingredients handy. Good news though…everything is available at your grocery store or on Amazon!
These have to be the most nutritious and more unique tasting veggie burgers I’ve eaten!Read More
Anyway, back to pumpkin! It seems like pumpkin hummus is all the rage this year. It’s not a new concept, but maybe more people are coming around to the idea of pumpkin flavored things that aren’t pie. I’m not sure.
I made this recipe as easy as I could since you really don’t need to cook anything, BUT I had to give you one more layer of flavor and added fried sage. Sorry! Not really sorry, though.Read More
Are you one of those people who knock the kale salad? It’s too bitter, too raw, too healthy? I wasn’t a huge fan either, and would always move towards a spinach or mixed green salad until I started making them at home.Read More
Pumpkin spice lattes are delicious in every way, but we need to talk about the other amazing Fall flavors that pair so well with coffee! We went apple picking at County Line Orchard in Hobart, IN and came back with SO MANY THINGS…cider, donuts, apples (obviously), pie, and apple butter!Read More
Oh you guys do I have a treat for you! If you’re into Indian desserts, booze, and coffee then this Spiked Frappuccino is HEAVEN!!! SomPriya sent me a box with their delicious (and gorgeous) liqueurs that are great to sip on after dinner OR mix into a whole slew of things. We actually have been huge fans of SomruS for over two years, but that was way before my blogging days, and now I get to tell you about it!Read More
