What will you be baking for guests this holiday season? While I tend to gravitate towards chocolate desserts, I also enjoy apple pie. This year I decided to put a twist on a classic favorite – Apple Pie Cookie Bars.
Since it is a busy season, I don’t always have a lot of time on my hands. Using products like Pillsbury™ Baking mixes are a great way to simplify recipes and save time in the kitchen. What I really like is their new line of Purely Simple™ products that provide a simple homemade taste without colors, preservatives or artificial flavors. [Read more…]

Impress your guests this Thanksgiving with these meal planning tips and amazing marshmallow dessert idea! Whether you’re planning your first or 20th Thanksgiving meal, here’s some ways to make it a success.
Be the Ultimate Party Planner with these Holiday Tips:
- Plan your menu in advance. There’s nothing like scrambling last-minute to put something together and not having enough ingredients on hand. A few classics to consider: Turkey or Ham, mashed potatoes and a really good dessert.
- Have a back-up. If one of your dishes falls flat before it hits the table, have a back-up plan. Buy rolls from the bakery incase you burn your crescent rolls, and buy a jar of gravy just incase your homemade version doesn’t pan out.
- Making your own pie? Prep the dough ahead of time and freeze them until needed.
- Save oven space by making some of the dishes on the stove top (or asking family/friends to bring a dish). This will keep you on track for dinner at the scheduled time.
- It’s okay to use some store-bought items. Thanksgiving is about spending time together, so don’t overwork yourself in the kitchen.
- Don’t forget appetizers. Your guests can’t wait for dinner, but smelling all those delicious meals being created in the kitchen can work up any appetite. Have a few appetizers dishes prepped and ready.
- Keep the kids busy. Have a classic movie or fun craft station prepped in another room for kids to enjoy.
- End on a high note – with a delicious dessert (like the one I’m sharing below)!

The holidays are all about sharing and there’s nothing better than sharing America’s favorite cookie – except when that cookie is crushed and rolled up into the delicious, simple goodness of an OREO cookie ball, a bite-sized treat made with three easy ingredients. OREO cookies, Cream Cheese and Chocolate, yum!! [Read more…]

I’m a traditional gal. I love to go home for the holidays and get that down home cooking that I grew up tasting. One of my favorite dishes that is always at the dessert table is my Granny Anne’s Lemon Cake. I honestly can’t remember a holiday meal without it! Isn’t dessert the best part of the meal anyway? 😉
Today I took my first crack at making her Lemon Cake recipe and I sure hope I made her proud.
