Cherry Pie

Wow! I can’t believe summer is coming to an end and Fall is just around the corner! Good-bye to those long summer days spent with my puppies outdoors. Along with a few of things I don’t like about summer – all those pesky insects (mosquitos, yellow jackets, and flies to name a few) people’s short, hot tempers, and steamy, sleepless

Eggnog Chia Protein Pudding

This egg-free and dairy-free Eggnog Chia Protein Pudding is a healthy way to start your New Year! Chia seeds are one of the top superfoods, full of fiber, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids, along with other vitamins and minerals. Earlier this week I was in a funk. I was eating healthy and getting enough sleep, yet I felt like I

Cranberry Apple Mulled Wine

Disclaimer – This recipe for Cranberry Apple Mulled Wine was entered in Cape Cod Select Blogger Recipe Challenge.   The week following Christmas and right before New Year’s Eve always feels like a black hole to me.

As y’all know, Georgia is famous for its peaches and peanuts. Since it’s Christmastime, I wanted to make a Christmas cookie that was representative

Eggnog Smoothie

It’s hard not to gain weight during the Holidays. All that candy at Halloween, food galore during Thanksgiving, and then there’s Christmas with all the chocolate candies, Christmas cookies, cakes and pies, and the eggnog. I love eggnog! I can’t wait until Thanksgiving because that’s when it starts showing up in the stores. But if you’re like me, you’re wondering,

Drunken Cherry Cranberry Sauce

You’re going to love the flavor red wine brings to this Drunken Cherry Cranberry Sauce.  I love cooking and baking with alcohol during the holidays. And no, it’s not because I drink, but because it adds a richer flavor to whatever you add it to. For example, my most recent Pumpkin Pie, where I add bourbon to the pumpkin filling

Apple Cranberry Pie

This Apple Cranberry Pie, made with Kyvan Honey Apple Butter, will be the showstopper of your Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday meal. Last week I finally got some inspiration to get into the kitchen to start my Holiday baking, starting with this Apple Cranberry Pie. The weather turning a bit colder helped me in this decision. Seriously, where is Fall? We

Starbucks Chocolate Cinnamon Bread

You’re going to love the combination of chocolate and cinnamon in this Starbucks Chocolate Cinnamon Bread! Enjoyed best with your favorite cup of coffee or tea and loved ones.  Can you believe it’s already November? I can’t. Not when we’re still having sunny 80-degree weather out here in Georgia. Heck, my iris and peonies are starting to poke through the
