  This may come as a surprise to you (or not so much a surprise), but I am not very successful when it comes to making brownies. You have no idea how many times I have attempted to make a solid batch of brownies in the past week. They either puffed up too much, or …

  Well, I promised I would have a peppermint bark recipe up this week, so here ya go. This is one of Zach’s favorites. He goes crazy over peppermint bark. This is especially true right after the holidays when all of the store-bought peppermint bark goes on sale. Like I mentioned when I posted the …

  It’s a good day when you make candy and it works out so well. The first time I ever attempted to make bark didn’t go so well, but with a little trial and error, I was able to get it just right. We love bark around the holidays. Actually, we love bark all year …

  In our home, mashed potatoes are a must for a Thanksgiving side dish. You can’t have turkey without mashed potatoes, and you can’t have mashed potatoes without turkey (or duck…or goose…or ham…or whatever else floats your boat). That’s just how it works around here. There’s just something about the two. I think they were …

  Well I have another confession to make. I have always hated cranberry sauce. I don’t know what about the stuff makes me dislike it so much. Growing up, I’m pretty sure that my mom was the ONLY person who would eat it. I made it a personal goal this year to come up with …

  I’ll let you guys in on a little secret, I absolutely hate making apple pie. The problem is that I love to EAT apple pie. I’ve tried to make it in the past, and let’s just be honest, it isn’t a walk in the park. It’s especially difficult when you make your own pie …
