Happy New Year! Let’s Eat! – Java Stout Braised Lamb Shanks

Happy New Year Everyone! Now it’s time to eat! Now I know there are many traditions out there. Growing up, we were the pork and sauerkraut type of people. And although I love sauerkraut, Zach hates the stuff. I tried to make it for him last year, and well that was just completely unsuccessful. He […]

Day 8 – Italian Lemon Drops (i.e. Lemon Anginetti)

We all know Zach’s hatred for lemon, but for some odd reason he loves lemonades and limoncello. I try to solve this mystery everyday, but get no where. I’m under the impression that he just PRETENDS not to like it. I’m not sure why he would do this, but this is the furthest I’ve gotten […]

Day 7 – Mint Chocolate Pinwheel Cookies

Zach loves to make pinwheel cookies. Whenever I ask him what kind of cookie he wants, we always eventually end at some kind of pinwheel cookie. We’ve dealt with pinwheels before, and they aren’t the easiest recipe in the cookbook. It does take some practice to really get the rolling technique down for this type […]

Day 5 – Chocolate Ginger Snaps

It wouldn’t be the holidays without whipping up something that snaps. I think I’m going to avoid gingerbread men and women this year, and just go with an untraditional gingersnap made with love and TONS of ginger and chocolate. What’s so special about these cookies is the perfect balance of ginger and chocolate. One doesn’t […]

Day 4 – Walnut Chocolate Drop Cookies

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, […]

Day 3 – Hazelnut Snowball Cookies

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 […]

Day 2 – Seven Layer Bars

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. They are a quick and delicious dessert. There’s not even any mixer action involved! Everything is just layered into a “lasagna-styled” […]

Day 1 – Peanut Butter Blossoms Three Ways!

So it begins: Day 1 of our 20 Days of Christmas Cookies! We know we have frolicked away from pairing our dishes with delicious brews, but don’t worry there will be some beer reviews on the way in the next week. We just don’t find pairing cookies with beer very successful. It will be well […]
