I’ve already made 3 batches of these cookies (including the initial experimental batch) and it isn’t even December yet!

Vanilla Butter Cookies with Peanut Butter Chips

I don’t do much baking in the summer. I’m less inclined to heat up the oven (and in turn, my house) in the scorching heat. The temperature outside my home in Kentucky has been over 100 degrees for days now, unseasonably hot and record setting for this time of year. But sometimes the mood to […]

Bourbon Orange Blossoms

This is the Christmas recipe I remember most from my childhood. My mom inherited this recipe from my grandmother and we would make them every Christmas. They always taste best if you allow them to sit for a week or more, and I was always trying to sneak one a little early. As an adult, […]

Bacon Molasses Cookies

Is it true that bacon makes everything better? After making these cookies, I say the answer is a definitive YES. I borrowed this fantastic recipe from my friend Brian, whose Molasses cookies are legendary at the holidays. When I mentioned adding bacon to the dough he was a little skeptical, but the results were FABULOUS. […]
