The Best Chewy Gingerbread Cookies

I love a good festive gingerbread during the Holidays, and nothing gets me more excited than spending a cold afternoon prepping cookie dough while I listen to Elf play in the background. This year instead of making 1000 traditional gingerbread cookies I opted for the low and slow approach to baking to create these chewy gingerbread

The Most Decadent Hot Chocolate Recipe

When I was growing up there was always that one thing that signaled Christmas time was here: Hot Chocolate. However, try as we might, our hot chocolate never quite tasted like Dean & Deluca’s or the cafe hot cocoa down the road. Mind you my sister and I were using Swiss Miss with the stale

Christmas Cookie Recipe Wreath

So, as I go to post this recipe I must kick myself, because of the 100+ Christmas cookies I made last year, I deleted ALL of my photos on accident documenting all the hard work that had been endured making (and eating) said cookies. The only photo that remains is one photo that I saved

Orange Cinnamon Sticky Buns with a Pecan Citrus Glaze

It finally happened. I finally found myself with enough time and just the inspiration to make cinnamon rolls from scratch. Now, as far as breakfast pastries go, cinnamon rolls aren’t the most difficult thing to whip up ingredient wise but they do require a lot of time. However, these orange cinnamon sticky buns were worth

Bourbon Spiced Pear Tart with Cardamom Vanilla Ice Cream

I don’t know what came over me but this year I had one must-make item on my Thanksgiving Menu and that was a pear tart for dessert. I have made countless pies and galettes this summer, but I’ve been craving puff pastry goodness smothered with fruit and a tart just seemed like the easiest compromise

All the great rivalry games are the Saturday that follows Black Friday, and I can’t wait to watch Auburn versus Alabama, Georgia versus GA Tech, and Ohio State versus Michigan. Since leftovers are inevitable from every Thanksgiving feast, I

Bourbon Prosecco Spritzer

I do not particularly gravitate towards bourbon as a drink. I’m a gin girl so opting for a dark liquor is a little out of my comfort zone unless of course it’s for the Kentucky Derby and I’m making a signature derby cocktail.  However, in an effort to try something new, I whipped up a citrusy

Sweet Potato Souffle with Maple Bourbon Meringue

I love when side dishes are slightly camouflaged as dessert. That I think is my favorite thing about Southern Holiday cooking. Someone, somewhere is sneaking sugar in unassuming places and we get to grow a little fatter and a whole lot happier during this time of year. And when it comes to memorable holiday food,

Chicken Chasseur & Truffled Mashed Potatoes

I would like to think that in one of my past lives I was a provincial Frenchwoman of decent means. I would spend my mornings in the kitchen with the cooks making bread (eating bread), and my afternoons lounging in a field reading Gulliver’s Travels until the sun begun to set and I’ve have to
