New Year's Eve Taco Buffet

Whether 2017 has been stellar or difficult, a New Year is upon us and keeping it fun and light seems like a great way to welcome it. So grab your favorite salsa and get ready to make a pitcher of sangria. Let's ring in the New Year with a taco buffet!

Braking for Brunch

With Christmas in the rear view mirror and New Year's Eve heading our way, maybe a pause to enjoy the little calm before these two mammoth holidays is in order. And what better way to do that than to enjoy a simple, yet decadent brunch?

Cookies for Santa

As we head into the long Christmas weekend, get ready to impress Santa with the most decadent cookie ever encountered. Chocolate in three ways are represented in one absolutely fantastic treat that will be the talk of all your holiday gatherings.

Sweet Tart Sentiment

Nostalgia and comfort food are part of the holidays for most people. Dig into the most sentimental baking recipe I turn to this time of the year and get ready to start your day, dig into your snacks, and enjoy dessert with Cranberry Nut Bread.

Oven Layering

In an effort to make a fancy dinner without pulling out every pan in my kitchen, a sheet pan and a skillet become partners in an inspired meal just in time for holiday entertaining or even a special meal to be enjoyed in the quiet before the final holiday rush!

Peppermint Bark!

One year later, it's time to sing the praises of Peppermint Bark - the candy, but mostly our dear puppy. And, in his honor, I'm sharing a recipe that's easy enough for the kids to make for sharing at your next cookie and candy party.

Imitating Risotto

I love creamy risotto, but not the long simmer time and sore arm I get from all that stirring. So when things get busy, especially during the holiday season, I like to skip the rice and turn to orzo for a deceptively good stand in that's faster and low effort.

Relieving Pressure

Up the pressure to help relieve the pressure of the holidays. It's no joke — I'm offering a sub-half hour dinner plan that can happen with the help of your pressure cooker. Get some glorious comfort food on the table and relax!

Taste the Spicy Rainbow

A blend of leftovers and fresh ingredients turn gumbo into super-quick food that's both beautiful and tasty. It's just what we need as holiday preparations shift into high gear and it seems like no one has time to cook.

Kitchen Gifts: Taco Almonds

Move over chips, you've got a new favorite snack now that you know your slow cooker can get you amazing taco almonds in the comfort of your own home. Moreover, they will make your space smell amazing!
