Typically around this time of year, I start relying on my slow cooker a lot more than I usually do. It’s like I get in a cooking funk as soon as the Christmas decor comes done.

There are numerous slow cooker recipes that I typically always have the ingredients for in my pantry and this Mississippi Pot Roast is one of them.

That way if I’m not in a cooking mood, I can toss a few things into my slow cooker and still have a home cooked meal on the table with very little effort.

Cream Cheese Pound Cake is one delicious way to treat yourself to dessert. This classic pound cake is one to make all year round.

Pound cake. For some reason, every single time I think of pound cake I think of little old grandmas and Sara Lee. Why?

I have no idea, it’s just a thing. I also don’t make a lot of pound cake.

Not that I have anything against it, it just always seemed kinda mundane to me next to the best chocolate cake or pumpkin crunch cake. If your thoughts on pound cake are at all similar to what mine were, allow me to change your mind.

This Cream Cheese Pound Cake will open up a brand new world of pound cake consideration and will literally have you secretly escaping to the kitchen to nibble on it.

Here in the Midwest, we are in the thick of winter. It’s not unusual to get an ice storm one day followed by a few inches of snow the next day.

What a joy. (Can you feel me rolling my eyes when I say that?)

But when the weather is cold and messy and unpredictable, I very predictably want to cozy up with a warm bowl of soup or stew. 

My favorite right now? This super hearty Slow Cooker Beef and Barley Stew.

Back in the early 2000’s I had a bit of an obsession with twice baked potatoes.

I’m talking making them once a week and eating leftovers all week long kind of obsessed.

I have no idea what recipe I used, but given the timeframe, I’m going to guess it was from RecipeZaar or Allrecipes. And let me tell you, they were delicious.

Then one day I made them and didn’t make them again for 15 years or so.

And here we are.

A recipe for twice baked potatoes that happened because my Instacart shopper delivered a 15-pound bag on potatoes on my front porch instead of the 5-pound bag I ordered.

I don’t know what it is about this year, but I am so far behind with holiday shopping right now. I was really ahead, but then I kind of just gave up. And if I’m being honest, just the thought of entering a mall right now gives me anxiety, so I’m thinking it’s going to be the year of the gift cards for quite a few people on my list.

One thing I’m not behind with is holiday baking. In fact, today I’m planning on making peanut butter blossoms and mint chocolate cookies with my girl today.

We may even whip up a couple of batches of snowflake sugar cookies because they are current favorite cookie recipe at the moment.

I don’t know what it is about this time of year that makes me want to clean and organize all the things.

Maybe it’s because I find myself spending way too much time on the cleaning side of TikTok, or maybe it’s because I pulled a jar of cinnamon sticks from my cabinet two weeks ago that expired in 2015.

Not exactly sure, but here we are.

Once I pulled the 5-year-old cinnamon sticks from my cabinet, I decided to just pull out every single jar, check the expiration dates, decant some of them and organize them a bit.

Along with 3 jars of cinnamon sticks I also some found some cloves, star anise and ginger that needed to used, so I whipped up a batch of stovetop potpourri the next day.

Let me tell you, I can’t get enough of the festive scent that it puts in the air.

Move over Bath & Body Works Hot Cocoa & Cream candle, there’s a new fave scent in town!

Homemade Marshmallows

Homemade marshmallows are the perfect accompaniment to a mug of hot chocolate.

Homemade Marshmallows will absolutely change the way you view marshmallows. These sweet, flavorful, soft candies are infinitely better than what you’d buy at the grocery store. They make a great gift or addition to any s’more or cup of hot cocoa.

If you happened to catch my post yesterday for Citrus Poppy Seed Cake, you may remember me telling you guys that Elle is going through quite the phase with fresh oranges.

Well, she’s also in a serious hot cocoa phase as well – ’tis the season. We’ve even made hot cocoa bombs, which are actually way easier than they may seem. And they’re a great little project on a cold afternoon.

The other day I came downstairs to find Elle in the kitchen filming a tutorial on her iPad so she could “teach people how to make her FAMOUS peppermint hot cocoa.” I mean, the girl was taking it pretty seriously and even pulled out the mallet to crush the candy canes to make her “secret topping” – which is basically candy cane dust.

So what better way to indulge her hot cocoa phase than with a batch of homemade marshmallows?

My sweet Elle has been very into oranges lately. So much so that I have been buying them for her by the crateful at Costco.

She’s very particular about the way they are sliced, so I can basically supreme an orange with eyes closed at this point. But I’m happy to pump my girl full of vitamin c at this time of year.

Since we’ve had so many oranges on hand lately, I’ve been thinking of ways to use them in baked goods like this Citrus Poppy Seed Cake and we’ve even made several batches of Holiday Stovetop Potpourri.

The best thing about this cake is that it is super simple to make which is always a bonus at this time of year!

I told you guys yesterday in the coconut macaroons post that I was in cookie mode and I wasn’t kidding.

I’m actually thrilled with the fact that it’s pretty cold in Ohio right now because I can store all the cookies I’m baking in tins inside the garage instead of cramming the tins into our garage freezer.

Because if I’m being honest, our garage freezer is a mess and still full of summer popsicles, ice cream sandwiches and various flavors of mochi that no one ever ate.

I should really clean that thing out.

But instead, here I am baking up ambrosia cookies and thinking about what’s next on my cookie to-do list!
