Merry Christmas!

2013-12-23_MerryChristmas2013-2

It’s amazing to think that another year has come and gone. This year has flown by for me, faster than any year I can remember. It’s been an amazing and wonderful year, but it’s also been a tough year. There have been many milestones and even more sleepless nights. There have been smiles and laughter…

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Red Star Yeast.  As always, all opinions expressed are entirely my own. Sticky buns on Christmas morning are a tradition in my family.  When I was growing up, there was a sweet woman in our church who would deliver freshly baked sticky buns each Christmas…

A Few of My Favorite Things (2013)

It’s Cyber Monday! Can you believe that we are already well into the holiday season? I am still in denial of the fact that Thanksgiving is over already. It seems that I spent weeks and weeks trying to decide what to make and then it was over in a flash.  I suppose that’s the way…

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Red Star Yeast.  As always, all opinions expressed are entirely my own. I already confessed to the fact that I have started doing some holiday baking… And, I’m back again today with another great holiday recipe from Red Star Yeast. When it comes to planning…

A Christmas Letter…

Season’s Greetings! With the holiday season in full swing, I thought I’d take a few moments to share my thoughts on the past year.  2012 has been a busy and exciting year for me, and many of you have been by my side along the way.  This year more than ever, I have felt much love from…

Cranberry Coffee Cake

I have always loved baking in the mornings, especially in the colder months of the year.  There’s just something about heating up the oven on a chilly morning and baking something for breakfast in my PJs. Since Miss Madison arrived, though, I haven’t been doing as much early morning baking. Morning baking has been replaced with…

White Chocolate Cranberry Brownies

This blog post was supposed to be a recipe for a fabulous pumpkin cheesecake with a luscious apple topping. I had it all planned out and spent my precious free time one evening baking the cheesecake. I was careful not to over-mix the filling and I let it cool in the oven for two hours…

Challenge: Holiday Recipes (Kitchen Bootcamp November/December)

I cannot believe that October is over already. Between waiting for our little baby to arrive and then adjusting to life with a newborn in the house (and, we’re still working on that part!), October just breezed right on by. November is here, and it’s time for a new Kitchen Bootcamp challenge! In the last week or…

Merry Christmas from Yellowdog and family…

Christmas is just a few short days away.  Hopefully by now you’ve baked most of your Christmas cookies, finished wrapping gifts, and made plans with friends and relatives.  So, instead of writing a Friday Favorites post with some last minute recipe ideas, I decided to let Yellowdog take over today.  She’s been dying to show…

Still looking for a last minute homemade gift idea? I’ve got you covered! Ever since I tried making these chocolate marshmallow bunnies from A Farmgirl’s Dabbles for Easter, I’ve wanted to make them again. If you’re tried making homemade marshmallows before, you know what I’m talking about.  And, if you haven’t made homemade marshmallows, take…
