My favorite recipes for to cook, bake and share for the holidays!
Snappy, small, fragrant, vanilla wafer cookies made with a whole vanilla pod. The entire thing!
This black sticky gingerbread recipe makes an outrageously dark, dense, flavorful and delicious cake. The burnt-caramel-esque crust that forms on the top of the cake is part of what makes this recipe a keeper.
Around the holidays these pretty, sugared, sparkling cranberries are perfect. Tart and sweet, they glint and wink in the surrounding holiday lights, and lend a striking dash of red to the table.
This is the recipe I use anytime I want perfect sugar cookies. Great flavor, and the dough is a dream to work with.
Classic, homemade cinnamon rolls made from a favorite cardamom-flecked, buttery, yeast dough with a generous cinnamon-sugar swirl.
One of my favorites. Classic, buttery, whole wheat shortbread cookies fragrant with rosewater, flecked with toasted nuts, and dried rose petals.
Everything you want in a classic gingerbread cookie. These are fragrant, spice-flecked, and delicious.
These are the ginger cookies you want to make. A special triple ginger cookie made with three kinds of ginger and a hit of lemon zest. Cracked and sugar-crusted on the outside, dense and moist within.
How to make beautiful, billowy vanilla nougat to which you can add all kinds of nuts, seeds, and dried fruit.
A holiday punch recipe made with ginger kombucha, prosecco, and gin. It's spritzy and bright, and dances on your tongue.
