Peppermint Brookies

Every December my girlfriend throws the most incredible cookie swap. The first year I heard a few attendees remark that they had never heard of such an event, but where i grew up it was certainly a thing. Here’s the idea: everyone brings their favorite cookie or bar, places them on a table to nibble on during the party with a glass of vino and at the end everyone fills their reusable tin or box to take home. Its my kind of party and the only time of the year my kids actually kick me out of the house and pray for my return, goodies in hand!

If you create your own cookies swap you have to make these Peppermint Brookies. What is a brookie? If a cookie and brownie had a love child this would be it. Soft and chewy inside like a brownie, a golden outer coating and in the shape of a cookie. It’s one of the greatest marriages of all time. They’re outrageously chocolatey throughout with a big punch of peppermint in each bite.

HPB (Ham, Pineapple, and Biscuit) Sandwiches

ham-pineapple-biscuits-01

As much as I love Christmas Eve dinner, the meal(s) I crave more than anything are the ones that follow. After a day of lazily lounging by the fire in our wrapping paper strewn living room, our entire family casually sits around the kitchen table devouring leftovers. You see, I’ve been making the same country ham with brown sugar pineapple sauce on Christmas Eve for the past 17 years. It’s a simple dish that’s always the precursor to me doing all of my last minute gift wrapping (yes, the kids and I are still wrapping for family events days after Christmas) and is the star of our holiday table. Everyone always looks forward to the moment it comes out of the oven.

The first time I heard my city mouse mother-in-law profess her love for my “good country ham” I knew I had found the way to her heart. I’ve made slight variations to the recipe over the years, but what never changes is the mountain of flavor the ham gets from the tang of the the sugar sweet pineapple, zip of the...

9 Soups to Make and Freeze

9 Soups to Make and Freeze from weelicious.com

It finally hit below 50 degrees in LA this weekend which is as close as it gets to chilly. We bundled up in cozy sweaters, fuzzy socks, lit a big fire, played games and were happy as clams. It was also the perfect opportunity to dig in the refrigerator for any and everything I could find to make big bowls of soup. In the winter there’s nothing that makes me happier than soup or stew on a cold day. Ok, there’s one thing and that’s not having to cook at all when it’s cold outside to just want to hide under the covers and play hooky with my hubby and kids. If that’s your jam you’ll want to make sure you have these 9 Soups to Make and Freeze on hand so you can do the same.

Whether you decide to make a crock pot full to pop in the freezer for school lunch or make a big pot for dinner and have a few bowls extra to keep in individual containers you’ll want to keep these recipes in your folder for just those days. They’re all super easy,...

Gluten-Free Apple Pie

When you start thinking about Thanksgiving, what comes to mind? Do you drool over the turkey you’ll be carving up? Crave the cranberry sauce that takes center stage on top of your plate? Yearn for sweet potatoes covered with golden marshmallows or all of the delectable vegetable sides? When I asked all of the peeps watching Facebook Live last week there were an overwhelming number of people wanting one thing. Pie!

Gluten Free Apple Pie from weelicious.com

Are you a pumpkin pie kind of person? A pecan lover or an apple pie enthusiast? Our family is all over the map. We can go for any and generally all of them, but in the past few years the idea of making a Gluten Free Apple Pie has come front and center. I wanted to create the best of the best gluten free crust for my apple pie, so I asked my incredible friend, Laurel, from Sweet Laurel Bakery to come over to make her famous Gluten Free Apple Pie for our Thanksgiving celebration. Not only is it mad delicious, but also super easy to make.
