Apple Ginger Whiskey Sour

Disclaimer: I received free products from Steviva in exchange for creating a recipe for the #Sweetenitup blogger challenge. All opinions are my own.  A whiskey sour was one of the first alcoholic drinks I ever had but, despite my love of bourbon and whiskey, it is never a drink I […]

Christmas Menu 2016

Christmas is less than three weeks away! Are you ready? Surprisingly, I’ve found myself pretty ready for this Christmas (except for a lack of recipes to share with you) and that’s probably because I managed to get my menu planned really early and my family really isn’t celebrating with gifts […]

Spiced Apple Cranberry Sauce

For years I have made my pear honey cranberry sauce on Thanksgiving. I chose the recipe because of the addition of pears and honey helped to tame the tartness of the cranberry sauce and my family is not a fan of tart cranberry sauce. This year I intended to try […]

Italian Green Beans

We eat so many green beans in this house. Tom isn’t a fan of most vegetables and because I have it in my head that he needs to eat them for dinner, I tend to cook the very few that he will eat and save the ones only I like […]

Chocolate Salted Caramel Pot De Creme

Did you know that January 5th is National Whipped Cream day? Yeah, me either. But in honor of all things light, fluffy and whipped, I thought it was the perfect day to share a chocolate salted caramel pot de creme recipe with you since it comes topped with homemade whipped […]

Eggnog Cupcakes

It’s the last week of December! This year went by rather quickly, don’t you think? On Thursday I’m sharing the Most Popular recipes of 2015 along with some of my favorites that didn’t make the list. Make sure you come back and check it out! I think eggnog is either […]
