2019 Resolutions

2019 Resolutions

I feel like I’ve been waiting for 2018 to end for the last few weeks. I hate that I’ve felt that way. In part, it’s because of the hustle of Christmas. We traveled to Texas to have an early Christmas with my family, then had […]

Microwave Peanut Brittle

Microwave Peanut Brittle

I first found this recipe for Microwave Peanut Brittle 4 years ago, and quite honestly, it’s fantastic. Alex and I are not peanut brittle lovers, but we sneak bites of this every day until I package it up. I’ve made batches and batches of it […]

Homemade Chocolate Marshmallows

Homemade Chocolate Marshmallows

I make 3 or 4 batches of homemade marshmallows each year, and have been doing so for the last 7 or 8 years. I love them. A couple of these batches are always Chocolate or Chocolate Chip Marshmallows. I’ve never been a big marshmallows person […]

DIY Food Gifts

DIY Food Gifts

I’ve been sending food gifts to my family and friends for years. During my childhood, we saw my relatives at Thanksgiving and at Christmas. My mom, sister, and I always made chocolate chip cookies, and we would make pecan pies and chocolate pies galore. One of […]

Alton Brown’s Hot Cocoa Mix

Alton Brown’s Hot Cocoa Mix

I love homemade hot chocolate, made with milk or rich cream, but sometimes it’s cold and you want something a little easier and kid-friendly (and lighter). When I do, I turn to this Hot Cocoa Mix recipe that I adapted from Alton Brown’s. What do […]

How to Freeze Cinnamon Rolls (and Other Bread and Breakfast)

How to Freeze Cinnamon Rolls (and Other Bread and Breakfast)

I love freshly baked, homemade cinnamon rolls. Particularly for breakfast, in the actual a.m. What I don’t like so much is getting up early enough to make cinnamon rolls from scratch. But guess what – I can make those cinnamon rolls in advance and bake […]

Cranberry Oat Pecan Scones (or Christmas Scones)

Cranberry Oat Pecan Scones (or Christmas Scones)

In my quest to make weekend breakfast more often this year, I’ve returned to making scones more often. This time, I decided to revisit the Cranberry Oat Pecan Scones that I made 8 years ago as my 367th and final recipe of 2010, when I […]

Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Glaze

Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Glaze

I love cinnamon rolls – but only homemade ones. I’ve seen too many very dark cinnamon rolls in bakery cases, ones where I know that even reheating (who wants a cold cinnamon roll?) will not make it worth eating. So I love making them at […]

Alton Brown’s Fruitcake

Alton Brown’s Fruitcake

I started making fruitcake for my extended family for Christmas in 2004 or 2005. I didn’t foist it on them; I only started making it after they told me, unprompted, that they liked fruitcake! I was thrilled to have an excuse to make it. Ever […]

Fresh Apple Cinnamon Scones

Fresh Apple Cinnamon Scones

I’m apparently on an apple kick this year. In addition to sharing apple butter and apple cider donut cake with you, I’ve decided to reintroduce you to these sweet and tender Fresh Apple Cinnamon Scones. It was 4, almost 5 years ago that I first […]
