Toffee Bars

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

We all think of toffee when we think of Christmas, don’t we? It’s one of those things we don’t think about much at all, but then when Christmas rolls around everyone pulls out their family’s favorite toffee recipe. Well, this is my Nana’s. I’m sure a friend gave her the recipe who received it from [...]

Tiger Butter

Monday, December 12th, 2011

I have no idea where this recipe originated since we’ve been making it every Christmas for as long as I can remember, but I would love to personally thank whoever came up with it. As you all know, I’m a bit of a peanut butter and chocolate addict. You put the two of those things [...]

Peppermint Crunch Bark

Saturday, December 10th, 2011

Nothing says the holidays quite like this yummy, crunchy, pepperminty bark! I make this bark every year and package it in pretty little containers to give away. It makes great gifts for office friends, bosses, customers, teachers, and friends! It’s also something great to take to holiday parties. And to make it even more appealing, it’s [...]

Reindeer Chow

Friday, December 9th, 2011

This delicious recipe was shared with me by my sweet friend Robin. That girl can make me laugh like nobody’s business, and my kids think she hung the moon and stars just for them! Making this recipe is one of those things that my kids look forward to every year around Christmas time, and they look even [...]

Mae Mae’s 5 Pound Fudge

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

I’ve told y’all about my Mae Mae before, the sweetest lady that I’ve ever known in my entire life. She was my mom’s mom and she was the best cook that I’ve ever met. Bobby Flay wouldn’t have a prayer if put up in a throwdown with my Mae Mae! When I think of Christmas [...]

Gingerbread Apple Streusel Coffee Cake

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

I am a little embarrassed to admit it, but last year during the Christmas season I went a little nuts. I bought six packages of gingerbread cookie mix because they only sell them during Christmas season, and well…what if I get the hankering for a gingerbread cookie in July? I personally have never made gingerbread cookies [...]

Reese’s Bars

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

I hope you like Christmas candy because I am on Christmas candy overload and am trying to post some of my favorites for all of you to enjoy. Speaking of, everyone loves Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, right? If you don’t, you deserve a bed at a mental hospital in my opinion. Seriously, who couldn’t love [...]

Pistachio & Cranberry White Chocolate Bark

Monday, December 5th, 2011

Can you say heaven on earth? Because that’s what these little bits are, little tiny pieces of heaven right here on earth! I actually made this recipe last week and the day after my mother-in-law came over to keep the kids for me while I went to run an errand. When I came back she [...]

Seasoned Oyster Crackers

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

Nothing on the face of this planet reminds me of my Nana at Christmas time more than her seasoned oyster crackers. There was never any question about whose house we went to on which day at Christmas time growing up. We always went to my dad’s family on Christmas Eve after our Christmas program at [...]

Tri Delt Trash

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

When I tell you this story, you are going to have to agree not to commit me for being a crazy food fanatic, okay? Promise? So now that we’ve all agreed on that, here goes. Way back in the day when I graduated high school (I’m officially an old lady today, as today is my [...]
