Can you believe that Christmas is tomorrow? I still can’t get over how quickly this year has gone by. We take the holidays very serious in my family. Everyone always comes together and it’s just a feast for 2 days, from morning until bedtime. There is food on every inch of the table and in every direction you look. I’m not sure what it is about the holiday season, but I get overwhelmed with the desire to bake. And, if you knew me, you’d know how odd that is because I’m really not a “sweets” guy. Although, I must say that my mom’s gingerbread cookies are among my favorite during Christmas. I’m very picky when it comes to gingerbread, too. They have to be seasoned perfectly and they can’t be too hard. I prefer mine more on the soft side and her recipe is perfect for eating and decorating. Since I’m not able to make it home this year for Christmas, I figured I’d make some of my mom’s gingerbread cookies myself. They’re super easy and I’m sure will soon become one of your favorite cookies too! View Post

The holidays are right around the corner! Whether you’re hosting a gathering or attending, you’ll certainly want something that will make a statement at the dinner table. This Cranberry & Orange tart will do just that. It’s festive and full of fall colors, but most important of all, it’s easy to make! Its buttery crust, sweet cream cheese filling and fresh fruit make for the perfect desert combination. What I love most about this recipe is its versatility. The crust is absolutely delicious and incredibly easy to make and you can use just about any fruit that you want. I’ve made this with berries and it’s just as tasty and looks just as elegant. Give the recipe a try and I promise you and your tummy won’t be disappointed.
