Low-Sugar Chocolate Egg Yolk Cookies

When you use as many eggs as we do, quality matters. Eggs are one of my “splurge” items at the grocery store, with  free-range options being my top pick. They just taste so much better! Have you ever tried free-range eggs? The yolks are typically a darker yellow color, and the whites as not as […]

Spiced Caramel Chocolate Bark #Choctoberfest

Triple Chocolate Truffles #Choctoberfest

I work at Benigna’s Creek Winery and we have a wine and truffles event in February. It’s always really special to make homemade candies. The truffle recipe we use, however, is very labor intensive. I saw a truffle recipe on Pioneer Woman that looked a lot easier, so I decided to try a version for […]

Breakfast Stuffed Biscuits
