Party Pimiento Cheese

My mom has been making this recipe for several years now. I have to confess that I really hate pimento cheese. Really hate it. I wouldn’t try her recipe for a long long time. This fall, I finally decided to try some, and it was wonderful! It wasn’t all watery and gloppy like so many […]

Salami Four Cheese Biscuits

A couple of weeks ago, I was watching Giada on Food Network and she was making these salami & gorgonzola biscuits. I was immediately intrigued and wanted to make them. I had intentions of making these for our sunday school class, but at the last minute just decided to use up some packaged cinnamon rolls. […]

Chocolate Caramel Cookie Bars

It called for refrigerated sugar cookie dough, but I decided to make my own using Ashlee’s Fabulous […]

Cream Puffs

There are so many ways to do cream puffs, lots of different fillings and toppings. I chose to fill mine with cream pattiserie and top them with chocolate ganache. I actually made these last Thanksgiving, but just never got around to posting them. They were really good and everyone kept going back for more. I […]

Hot Apple Cider

This is a recipe that my mom has been making for years and years. It tastes wonderful and is so comforting on a cold winter’s night. It uses two ingredients and is so simple, but has a great depth of flavor. She always makes this every Christmas and also recently made this for a gathering […]
