This Cranberry Almond Dressing is how my Mom does stuffing. Stuffing is my favorite side dish at a holiday meal. I love the savory flavors, and the moist yet firm texture. The ingredients that my mom includes in the dressing make it extra special and different than your run of the mill stove top stuffing. Semi Homemade This recipe uses boxed stuffing, so it is semi-homemade, but just as tasty as the real deal. The made from scratch stuffing recipe on this blog is AMAZING and . . .
These candied pecans have been on here for a long while, they're buried way back in the archives. Just because they're buried doesn't mean I don't make them all the time! They are one of our family favorites. They're perfect all year around but I find them especially festive during the holidays. The uses for candied pecans are endless! I typically love to make the for this pear salad, but they are so delicious on their own that sometimes they dont even make it to the salad before we eat . . .
If you have had the caramel apple spice from starbucks you know its pretty amazing. Take that drink and times it by 10 and then you'll have THIS version of caramel apple spice- because we're using a homemade salted caramel sauce that is most definitely drool worthy. It was a few years ago, after caroling and light seeing my little family had gone and froze our tails off doing. We were ice cold and needed something warm and soothing stat. We stopped by a Starbucks that was nearby and picked . . .
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 don't think I have ever met anyone that really despised a slush. I mean really? Think about it? Who has ever said? 'Oh Nasty! Is that a slushie?' Seriously don't think I have ever met anyone with those feelings. If you are one of those, comment now and I will revoke my comment but I doubt it will ever happen. Because slushies are awesome! They are easy. Entertain a crowd. They can be use as an appetizer or dessert. Kids love them. Adults love them. They look amazing. They taste amazing, and go . . .
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 . . .
One foggy Christmas party my Aunt served me a hot tasty drink that totally took me by surprise. I don't know what I was expecting but THIS was awesome. We were at a family party, all sitting around enjoying each other's company drinking "Russian Tea." That was what she had for its name. I have altered the name to spiced orange cider. It's a title that more accurately describes this drink- warm and cozy. I love to make this in the cold fall and winter months. We serve it breakfast with eggs . . .
I am a person who enjoys cake and brownies over cookies. Majority of cookies don't really tempt me, at all. There are a few exceptions, like these sugar cookies and these rocky road cookies. But ESPECIALLY this recipe of white chocolate chip cookies. Their name is really deceiving too. There's actually quite a bit more ingredients than just white chocolate chips. Theres a little but of oatmeal (which gives it that mild warm nutty taste) and little bit of coconut, and of course creamy . . .
I had these chocolatey rocky road cookies years ago at a friends house. My favorite part is biting into the chew marshmallows. Although, the creamy chips and chocolatey flavor you cannot beat either. I love these are easy and quick to make. I also love how these rocky road cookies are totally unique than all other cookies out there. How To Make Rocky Road Cookies They're really very simple to make, but there are a few tips and tricks so that they bake just perfect. Start out by adding . . .
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. . . .
