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! Santa’s home and general relaxation spot (at least on December 26th) is the inspiration for these peppermint-frosted, rich cinnamon cupcakes. There are somewhere between 6 and 9 feet of ice that make up the solid “ground” at the North Pole, and that’s roughly the same amount of frosting on these...

Candy Cane Cookies

These Candy Cane Cookies are a delicious holiday tradition! Peppermint or almond flavored sugar cookie dough, twisted into these charming cookies, will put a smile on everyones face! For me, Christmas time is definitely “the most wonderful time of the year.” I love seeing houses decorated in beautiful lights. I love all of the Christmas trees adorned with all kinds of ornaments. And I love Christmas carols…even when they get played a little too early. These things—and a whole bunch of other awesome Christmas standards like family time, hot chocolate, and big Christmas dinners—mix together into a month of...

Red Velvet Cake

Red Velvet Cake is one of my favorite things in this whole wide world! This is a truly wonderful Red Velvet Bundt Cake Recipe!

Red Velvet Cake Recipe Notes: This is one of the few recipes I actually lug out my sifter and use it. I think...

Oh, Red  Velvet!!!! Don’t you just love it? The flavor, the color…..I just can’t get enough Red Velvet.

Then, when she invited my family over for  a Sunday dinner, she asked me if I could bring dessert. Guess what she asked me to bring….guess what recipe she faxed me…..that’s right. These Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies 🙂 Everything...

Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

Oh My!  Oh My! Red Velvet Whoopie Pies! Does it get any better than that? Not for me baby. The cookie portion of this whoopie pie has a lovely soft and tender texture. It also had more chocolate than a lot of Red Velvet treats which make me love this recipe even more. It has three types of chocolate in it. I mean, which other Red Velvet Whoopie Pie recipe can say that? It has a little milk chocolate, semisweet chocolate and cocoa all mixed together to create the perfect chocolate flavor. The batter is very thick so I suggest you use...
