Christmas Tree Edible Decoration

One of our family traditions is to make a gingerbread house. It took us many years to find a gingerbread house that actually stays together with good frosting and solid gingerbread house pieces. We use the Trader Joe’s gingerbread house kit to make it now and my mom goes out and gets one (or two) […]

Oreo Peppermint Crunch Chocolate Chip Cookies

There are a lot of things I love about the holidays. One of my favorite things is baking. It’s the one time of the year where I can bake whenever I want and no one complains to me about it. Santa needs his cookies, right? So I started doing a 31 days of Christmas thing […]

Cranberry Lemon Bars

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I love Christmas! My dad was the one who taught me to love Christmas. He learned from his mom. We always take a picture of our Christmas tree. The trick with my dad wasn’t necessarily getting a lot of high ticket items, but large items. They can be […]

Peppermint Bark

My family has always enjoyed peppermint bark, especially around Christmas time. It’s one of the only things that uses white chocolate that I actually like. I figured out why, it’s because the white chocolate has peppermint extract in it! It makes it so it doesn’t taste like white chocolate at all. So if you are […]

DIY Snowflake Earrings

As the weather starts to turn cold and the first big snow storm is on its way, I was trying to think of something to make for one of the most important people in my life. Our good friend, is also like a second mother to me, she is also the entire family’s fairy godmother. […]

Moist Chocolate Cupcake with Oreo Filling Frosting

This  past weekend I had all my bridesmaids over to help craft for the wedding. It was loads of fun but we ended up with so much food. My mom came and bought food for every meal, my friend brought chips, dip, cheese, crackers, and cupcakes! I had also made cupcakes for the occasion. My […]

Prosciutto and Mozzarella Stuffed Steak

This Monday a bunch of my husband’s family came over to see the house for the first time. They happened to be in the area and decided to stop in. I always love seeing his family but we were completely unprepared. I had come up with a meal but once it was made it was […]

Prosciutto and Mozzarella Chicken Rollatini

So a few days ago I gave you all my recipe for chicken parmesan. My husband loves chicken parmesan, but I think I finally found something that will top it. It’s definitely in the same vein as chicken parmesan but with a few added ingredients it really goes from good to fantastic. So my husband […]

Butternut Squash Souffle

Every year on Columbus Day weekend we go and see my friend and her parent’s to watch the Patriot’s football game on Sunday. It’s tradition and it’s always fun. One of my favorite things about football is that it’s very team oriented, whether you are someone who is an actual member of the team or […]

Chicken Parmesan

My husband’s favorite meal when we met was chicken parmesan. It wasn’t a regular in my house growing up but today, in my husband’s and my new house, it is definitely a regular dish. Now my husband’s favorite dish is sushi. There is an amazing place in Sturbridge, MA that has the best sushi I have […]

Zucchini Pizza

I have mentioned before that my husband is hard to please when it comes vegetables but I finally did it. He actually said this was his favorite vegetable I’ve ever made, which is very high praise. This is a fast and easy side dish which is why I am particularly excited that this is his […]
