This fun recipe is a delicious chocolate cake with a layer of peppermint patty and topped with a rich chocolate ganache and bits of candy cane. It’s as pretty as it is tasty.
Making gravy was always a challenge for me until I discovered that turning it into a roux-based gravy makes it a breeze — and foolproof. The herbs add a lot to this too.
This is the perfect fall dessert. A moist pumpkin bundt cake with a sweet icing drizzle. Don’t you just love a bundt?
Using premade wonton wrappers and a tasty cheddar-potato filling, these pierogies are simple to make — and way better than the frozen ones.
When spring finally arrived this year, the kids and I were quick to start picnicking in the backyard. This refreshing drink was a huge hit — and used up a bunch of leftover citrus fruits.
These adorable mini loaves make perfect thank you gifts. We gave them to teachers and they just loved them.
After about a dozen tries, I finally succeeded in making blueberry white chocolate cookies. Huge hit. I found that dried blueberries yielded the best results — I think, at least.
This was an assignment from Pillsbury, but it turned out to be one of the kids’ favorite confections of the holiday season this year. Sugar cookies were rolled in crushed pretzels, baked and drizzle with milk chocolate. Amazing.
Talk about a tried and true: this is a recipe that hits our table about once a week. The kids just love it and it’s so easy that the box just seems silly. When I asked Facebook fans if they were interested in me posting this, there was a big, huge, resounding YES!
In the dead of winter, soups like this really make the day better. This one is thick and creamy with bits of broccoli and a good amount of cheddar. It’s really hearty.
