Roasted Pecans

A few weeks ago, I made a double batch of these roasted pecans. I felt ridiculous when they all came out of the oven. We had jar after jar of roasted pecans sitting on our counter. I thought we’d be eating them for weeks! But, as it turns out, th…


A few weeks ago, I made a double batch of these roasted pecans. I felt ridiculous when they all came out of the oven. We had jar after jar of roasted pecans sitting on our counter. I thought we’d be eating them for weeks! But, as it turns out, these roasted pecans are such a tasty snack that as soon as Jack or I polished off one handful, we’d inevitably circle back for more. Two days later, there wasn’t a pecan in sight. If you’re looking for an easy, festive treat to bring to a party or get-together this week, […]

Chocolate bark is one of my favorite last-minute holiday recipes. I’ll often use up all the random bits of chocolate I have left from my holiday baking, swirling them into pretty (and pretty delicious) slabs of chocolatey delight.

Not to mention the endless possibilities of flavors and toppings… from peanut butter to creme de menthe, freeze-dried fruit to crunchy cookie bits. And now this one, featuring grassy matcha swirled with sultry white chocolate and a base of dark chocolate to offset the sweetness.

I actually first started testing this recipe last year, but I wasn’t completely happy with the appearance of it (turns out rainbow sprinkles aren’t always the best choice), and seeing as it was practically Christmas already, I ended up tabling the idea for this year instead.

Look, when it comes to cookies I’ll admit to being lured by the fancy: the filled and the frosted, the stuffed and the sprinkled. I tend to write off anything else as boring and not worth my time. I mean, I don’t even have a classic chocolate chip cookie recipe on this site for gosh sakes.

That said, despite the fact that these toffee apple oatmeal cookies are decidedly not fancy, not to mention not the least bit photogenic, they may just be one of my favorite cookies of the year.

Texturally, they’re a delight, something that’s incredibly hard to convey with photos. I’d describe them as both chewy AND crispy, proof that the impossible is possible.

If you’re looking for a festive and delicious holiday recipe to add to your cookie trays this year, I’ve got you covered with these orange cranberry cookies!

These vibrant orange cranberry cookies are so easy to make. Cranberry and orange go together so well and I’m always looking for excuses to pair them up.

I’ve got cranberry orange scones and Grand Marnier-spiked homemade cranberry sauce, as well as cranberry orange cinnamon rolls and cranberry orange smoothies. You could say I’m obsessed!

Dried cranberries are often the go-to when it comes to cookies, but these fresh cranberry cookies have a great tart flavor that is complemented by the orange glaze.

You can make the glaze or go without, but I just love the added sweetness it brings!

This is such a great Christmas cookie to add to the dessert tray.
