‘Tis the season for cranberry everything! I made these delightful (and easy) cranberry orange muffins for Thanksgiving brunch tomorrow, but they’d be wonderful for Christmas too. With sour cream, orange zest, fresh cranberries, and a bright orange glaze, these muffins are sure to make your morning merry and bright!            …

Caramel Apple Layer Cake

I adore apple season. I almost exclusively eat apples in the fall when they’re at their very best. I combined my favorite apple cake recipe with my favorite caramel frosting and drizzle (you might recognize it from my Bananas Foster Cake) for the most magical fall cake. It tastes even more magical than it looks!…

Pumpkin Mac ‘n’ Cheese

This pumpkin mac ‘n’ cheese is creamy, dreamy, and easy to make! You can make the sauce in about the same amount of time it takes to boil macaroni. For that reason, this would be a great dish to make on Halloween night when you want a quick pumpkin dinner. Remember when I said in…

Pecan Pie Cheesecake

I’m delighted to report that Mama Rose Table has perfected her pecan pie cheesecake just in time to share it with you all for Thanksgiving! This recipe is truly the best of both worlds. It’s more delicious than any pecan pie I’ve ever had. The cheesecake actually lightens it up AND it’s quite a bite…

Thanksgiving Table Inspo

I’ve never hosted Thanksgiving but last year, my mom put me in charge of the table and it was so pretty, I thought I’d share it with you today to serve as inspiration for your own holiday table. We serve all of the food on the dining room sideboard – not on the table –…

Autumn Burrata Salad

Looking for the perfect fall salad? This is it! With butternut squash, pomegranate arils, and pumpkin seeds, this salad is as healthy as it is delicious. The maple vinaigrette just takes a minute to whisk together (or throw all of the ingredients in a jar and shake it) and makes a huge difference. The heat…

Maple Glazed Bacon Brussels sprouts

Both the Brussels sprouts and bacon get a maple spa treatment in the oven in this perfect fall side dish.  I feel like Brussels sprouts get a bad rap. Have you ever had roasted Brussels sprouts? Delicious! Have you ever grown them yourself? Delightful! Have you ever had them glazed with maple syrup and tossed…

Pumpkin Muffins

Want the perfect fall snack? Bake my pumpkin muffins! I’ve been baking these for years and finally wrote the recipe up for you. These muffins take less than ten minutes to make (I baked these this morning while my coffee was brewing) and twenty minutes in the oven, which means you are thirty minutes from…

Jeweled Jasmine Rice

A beautiful rice dish with pomegranate arils, cranberries, and pistachios  This dish smells like pure heaven when it’s cooking. Oh my word. I’m still thinking about it. It’s easy to make and great for entertaining, because you can cook the rice (I used Jasmine Minute Rice) an hour before the party and let it hang out. Then…
