Christmasdoodles

This is one of the best damn cookie recipes I’ve ever published. I wanted a gingerbread-like cookie to share with you all but the problem is, I don’t like gingerbread, I don’t like molasses, and I don’t like powdered ginger but I love cinnamon!

Sausage Medallion Pasta

I have made this pasta a thousand times. Back when I was twenty and twenty-two, I didn’t have much of a budget for entertaining but still wanted to have my friends over for dinner so I almost always made pasta because it’s an inexpensive way to feed people. Nine out of ten times, I made…

Whether you use these in hot chocolate/hot cocoa, for s’mores, for baking, or for marshmallow pops, this is an absolutely delicious way…
