The Ultimate List of Wine and Cookie Pairings

Every year, we make dozens and dozens of Christmas cookies for gifts and parties. Our family is kind of known for it. My mom is the original cookie lady, but Jess and I are definitely cookie ladies in training. Since my mom works at a winery, and we all enjoy wine, we often gift a […]

Low-Carb Fettuccine Alfredo (You Won’t Believe It’s Not Pasta!)

I’m a sucker for pasta dishes, but let’s face it… this time of year, I definitely don’t need to be scarfing down a huge dish of fettuccine alfredo! This recipe doesn’t actually contain any pasta, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised how similar it is to a big bowl of fettucine alfredro. And no “zoodles” – […]

Apple Cinnamon Sangria

It’s the perfect time of year for sangria! Most people think of sangria as a summery drink, but the truth is that you can tailor your sangria to the season by using different fruits, spices, wines, and alcohols. How about a nice apple cinnamon punch for the holidays? Added bonus: it looks really pretty on […]

Christmas is right around the corner. Are you looking for a quick and easy cookie to make  for a party or just need another cookie for your cookie trays? These chocolate caramel cookies are perfect. All it takes is a Devils Food cake mix, eggs, canola oil, and a bag of mini rolos. What is […]

Magical Disney Kitchen Gifts for Every Budget

My sister and I are unapologetic Disney nerds. One of my earliest memories was a trip to Disney World when I was 5, and I make a point to go every few years. My last trip in 2014 was with Jess – I think we are due for another Disney vacation again soon! Of course, […]

Gluten-Free Frosted Chai Spiced Sugar Cookies #FBLCookieExchange

I love making piles of Christmas cookies every December! Every year, our blog participates in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, but this years the organizers decided not to host a swap… so our #FoodBloggerLove group on Facebook decided to run of a swap of our own. Everyone donated money to charity as an “entry […]

Quick and Easy Honey Ginger Cookies

I am a sucker for trying new, interesting ingredients that aren’t too weird. You know, like I don’t want sardines in my cake… but honey granules? Count me in! Also called “honey powder,” these little crystals give you all the flavor of honey without the sticky mess. They’re perfect in tea, but as soon as […]

Maple Banana Frosting (Paleo)

This is possibly the weirdest frosting ever… but it is so tasty! I didn’t start out looking for a paleo recipe. I was just looking for something that didn’t use the tradition sugar, milk, and butter ingredients you find in most frosting recipes. Then I came across this 7-minute maple frosting from Healthy Seasonal Recipes. […]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love the combination of pumpkin and chocolate. These cookies pack a lot of flavor into a single bite or two. In the past, I made pumpkin spice cookies using pumpkin pudding mix, but I wanted to find a cookie with a more prominent pumpkin flavor. These fit the bill! I used milk chocolate chips […]

Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake with Chocolate Drizzle

Do you want to make a coffee cake that is moist and delicious and easy to make? Stupid question. Of course you do! I love coffee cake because it can be breakfast, dessert, or a mid-day snack. I had some fresh raspberries in the refrigerator and needed something to do with them, so I decided […]

Cajun Deep-Fried Turkey and Buffalo Sauce #FreeTheOven

This is a guest post from John McLemore from Masterbuilt Manufacturing, Inc. I’ve never tried frying a turkey, but I have to admit, the reduced cooking time would really help me out on Thanksgiving Day when I’m trying to feed 10+ people! And extra oven space? That would be super useful! Have you ever deep […]

Banana Snickerdoodle Cookies (Vegan!)

When our neighbors, Kevin and Pam, moved in next door a few years ago, I took them a plate of cookies to say welcome to the neighborhood. They were super surprised – I guess most people don’t bother doing stuff like that anymore! But my parents always taught me to keep a good relationship with […]
