Eggnog Milkshakes

Looking for some holiday cheer? You’ve come to the right place! This is the perfect milkshake to drink while curled up by the fire watching holiday movies.

Chocolate-Dipped Christmas Shortbread

I just love a simple, buttery shortbread cookie and I love them even more when they’re dipped in chocolate. This is such a pretty cookie for a Christmas cookie plate and they’re so easy to make. When I say “dipped” shortbread, I really mean “Christmas Shortbread with Chocolate Spooned On” but that didn’t have the…

My First Hybrid Christmas Tree

“O tannenbaum, o tannenbaum How lovely are thy branches!” Have you ever heard of a hybrid Christmas tree? Neither had I!

Four Christmas Tables

I adore table settings so it’s no surprise that I get jazzed up about the idea of a holiday table. Here are four festive tables for Christmas: Classic Christmas Red and green never goes out of style. For a Classic Christmas table, pair red placemats with festive green napkins and holiday napkin rings. No tablecloth…

How to Make Sugared Cranberries

What’s more Christmas-y than glistening sugared cranberries? Sugared cranberries are as fun to make as they are to eat! I top my Festive Fiori di Sicilia Cake, Cranberry Cupcakes, and Cranberry Belgian Waffles with these beauties. They’re also gorgeous threaded on toothpicks as a drink garnish or just set out in a bowl for snacking….

Cranberry Cupcakes

“It’s the most Christmas-y Cupcake in the wooooorld” With juicy, tart cranberries, a hint of orange, and sugared cranberries on top, this is the quintessential Christmas cupcake. It really doesn’t get more holiday festive than this! These cupcakes just scream holiday cheer. This is the Bing Crosby of cupcake recipes. My Festive Fiori di Sicilia…
