I’m going to hand over the content for this cookie over to Zach. Because this is his family’s recipe and I have no idea what the history and tradition is behind it! Better for it to come from him, so here he is!! These chocolate drop cookies have been a long-standing tradition in my family, …

It’s been, what I would call, a lifetime of tradition in my immediate family for baking cookies around Christmas time. As far back as I can remember, my mom has been the eyes and ears of this operation: always making sure she made our personal favorites and always making sure there were more than enough …

Well here we are! Day 2 of 20 Days of Christmas Cookies! 7 Layer Bars are another extremely easy recipe to make for the holidays. It may even be easier than peanut butter blossoms.

Zach and I have both attempted to make handmade perogies before. Fortunately for Zach, his turned out delicious, mine on the other hand fell into a big heaping pile of potato goo. Yesterday, I decided to take another stab at it. Success was on my side this time. With a little bit of patience and …

I’ve been waiting to make a sweet potato burger for a long time. I’ve come across many recipes: in cookbooks and online, but there was never one that really caught my eye. I am no where close to being a vegetarian, but I love a good veggie burger. Quinoa and mushroom burgers are just two …
