Gingerbread Granola

by Amy on December 5, 2013

I like to have a few easy and festive meal ideas up my sleeve for the month of December – something to make an ordinary breakfast, lunch, or dinner a little special. We might make gingerbread boy and girl pizzas, eat dinner by candlelight, or have Santa pancakes on a weekend morning. For another fun […]

Whenever Saturday morning rolls around, I always have an urge to slow down, watch cartoons and eat a sweet breakfast of pancakes, waffles, or french toast! I have fond memories of Saturday morning pancakes, (my parents made pancakes for us in the shape of our initials, or Mickey mouse), and I want to make sure […]

Cookie Dough Log Rolls

by Marie on December 9, 2008

WEEK OF TREATS – DAY 2 I’m giving a few of these Cookie Dough Log Rolls to neighbors as gifts this Holiday. You can give yummy homemade cookies, but don’t have to bake them right away. They’re a perfect treat for on the go or as a midnight snack too. With these dough rolls, you […]

WEEK OF TREATS – DAY 1 This week I’ll be posting yummy treats to make during the Holiday Season. They’re a great “make and take” for family and friends or to keep for your own sweet tooth. So take notes, throw the diet out the window like me and enjoy this Holiday Week of Treats. […]

What’s On Your Holiday Menu?

by Marie on December 20, 2007

Some years we go big with the food for Christmas and some years we are still too burnt out from the last holiday meal at Thanksgiving. This year for Christmas Eve, my Mom is having a “fun food buffet” for the meal: artichoke dip, jello salad, salmon, meatballs, chips and dip, and ending the night […]

Do You Like Nuts in Your Fudge?

Today post is brought to you by Karen, my Mom. As I have already posted, she makes great Christmasy treats. Check out the Lollipops and the Bread Dough Wreaths we used to make with her as kids. I’m excited for her to share her own Mother’s Famous Chocolate Fudge. She has passed the how-to on […]

Fruity Christmas Garland

by Marie on December 11, 2007

I am bringing a classic Christmas decoration back, Fruit Loop Christmas Garland. The kids love to make these and surprisingly, their attention stayed until the end. You need a box of Fruit Loop Cereal, yarn – any color, tape, scissors, and a tree to drape it on. I found this little tree for $1 at […]

Christmas Lollipops

by Marie on December 10, 2007

I love to make suckers, or lollipops as some say. This is another fun treat that I would beg my Mom to help me make for friends for the Christmas season. My Mom has a lot of treats up her sleeve. My mom purchased these sucker molds many many moons ago and they look very […]

Peppermint Whip Cream Magic

by Marie on December 6, 2007

This stuff is really magic. Mostly because it is gone is seconds as your guests will pile huge dollops into their hot cocoa. My sweet sister-in-law, Jeanne, first introduced this to me years ago and I have been making it for parties ever since. Peppermint Whipped Cream Recipe: 5 peppermint candy canes – or spearmint […]

Baking a Christmas Wreath

These treats were one of my favorite to make around Christmastime. I used to make these with my mother when I was growing up. They would be the special treat I got to give to my friends a Christmas. They are simple and fun to make, and very festive. These sweet bread trees, wreaths, and […]
