Reindeer Sugar Cookies

 You can skip the fancy cookie cutters for these delightful little deer. They’re made from buttery sugar cookie dough and dressed to impress guests, hostesses, or even a jolly old elf. If you’ve ever been stuck in a big group trying to figure out where to go for dinner you know just how impossible it is to satisfy everyone at once. Decisions can be hard, especially when there are lots of different opinions (and desserts!) to consider, but I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t love a good sugar cookie. They’re simple but full of buttery flavor, with just a...

North Pole Cupcakes

These charming, cheery North Pole Cupcakes are probably the first thing Santa eats to restore his energy after a long Christmas Eve. A fancy, flavorful cupcake supports a giant, snowy drift of peppermint frosting with a cute little sign directing everyone to the place where all the magic happens!

While the best cake is definitely one someone else makes for...

Easy Hamburger Soup Recipe

Hamburger Soup is a home-style, hearty meal sure to satisfy healthy appetites and stir up happy memories of Grandma’s house. My Grandma always had something special bubbling or baking away in her kitchen. Her cooking has definitely inspired a great deal of mine, and one of my first memories is sitting down to enjoy a big, warm bowl of her Hamburger Soup. It was such a hearty, filling dish, and it’s the kind of meal that somehow manages to make everything better. I think everybody has a favorite hamburger vegetable soup recipe. First, it’s frugal – you can stretch a...

Chocoflan Recipe

Opposites do attract, and in epic dessert fashion! Discover the charm of Chocoflan – a masterful union of fudgy chocolate cake and creamy vanilla custard. That little machine that makes chocolate and vanilla swirled ice cream might just be my favorite invention (second to air conditioning, of course). Why spend precious time at the counter pondering the age-old question of “chocolate or vanilla” when you can have both? “Both” (or “one of everything”) is,  after all, my dining philosophy, and it’s one of the reasons I love to make this Chocoflan. In one unassuming Bundt pan, you’ll construct the...
