For the last several years I have whipped up several batches of Hot Cinnamon Milk mix, both to keep in my pantry and to give to my neighbors as gifts. If you enjoy a steamer, you will love this stuff. The Perfect Neighbor Gift I always package it into a mason jar for easy storage and cute packaging all in one. Its also a baking-free gift that your neighbors and friends will enjoy. I like to include the directions for use and a gift tag. Wrap some ribbon and a jingle ball and you have a . . .
I really love coconut. I love recipes with coconut in them, and I love the smell of coconut. So when a local tea shop started serving coconut hot cocoa I was all over it. Cafe Quality Made At Home I thought I could pretty easily re-create that hot chocolate at home, and I was right! I started with canned coconut milk. You can opt for the coconut milk in a carton, but I think the canned has a little stronger coconut flavor. I added in some cows milk, and also some chocolate! I went . . .
My mom attended a cookie exchange every year at my grandma's house. All of her cousins, aunts, and friends were invited. They went BIG and baked a dozen cookies for each person in attendance. She would come home with laundry baskets full of cookies. Some delicious, some that went in the trash, ha ha! But it was an event that everyone looked forward to. In recent years I've attended cookie exchanges where each person brought a dozen cookies and left with a dozen assorted cookies. . . .
Tis the season for baking and cookie making. This time of year it seems I am making cookies for holiday parties, cookies for the neighbors, cookies for class treats, and cookies for my family to enjoy. With all of these cookies, there has to be a better way to package them than on a paper plate with plastic wrap! Today I'm sharing some cookie packaging ideas that I like to use. I am a big fan of pretty packaging - I love to wrap presents and I am always a sucker for a makeup item in . . .
Cookie Exchanges are a fond memory of mine. My grandma hosted a HUGE cookie exchange every year. They went all out and baked 1 dozen cookies for each person in attendance. I remember my mom coming home with and entire laundry basket full of plates of cookies. That is heaven for a little kid. I remember going with my mom on a few occasions when my dad was working and just drooling over all the cookies. I also felt super special being there because it was a no-kids event...but with it being . . .
A few year ago my husband and I took an adult only getaway to Las Vegas. My mom graciously flew out from Utah to spend some one on one time with our son and to let us have a mini-vacation. Before I left she whipped up this chewy trail mix for our drive out to Vegas. Lots Of Good For You Ingredients This mix is full of things that are super good for you, so you don't feel guilty chowing down on it! Almonds, cranberries, and lots of fiber! I was skeptical with ingredients like Kashi Go . . .
Last year my mother in law told me about this tasty little appetizer. So when we hosted a Christmas party I whipped up this cream cheese pesto spread and it was completely gone by the end of the night. It was so simple and so tasty, that I had to make it again this year when we attended an ugly sweater party. I got so many compliments and questions on this easy dish that I decided to share it here with you guys. Only 4 Ingredients I really love recipes that are simple, have minimal . . .
This salsa is not what you are thinking. It is sweet, full of fruit, with a light tasty glaze. Not only is this sweet fruit salsa yummy with cinnamon sugar chips it would be great atop waffles, or atop a sugar cookie spread with cream cheese frosting. I've served this at numerous parties and functions and I ALWAYS get asked for the recipe over and over again. If you know how to chop a few apples, you can pull this recipe off like a pro. This is one of those recipes that my family . . .

One of my fav restaurants in Outback Steak House. I love the simplicity and the bold flavors. At a recent trip I ordered a side of broccoli and cheese with my steak and holy moly! It was sodanggood! Broccoli is one of my favorite vegetables - but I know many have an aversion to it. Well I'm here to tell you that if you add this simple cheese sauce to your broccoli - you will be converted! Made In Minutes The base of this recipe is a ridiculously easy cheese sauce. You start by making . . .
