Psst! You can make the cookies shown above using my latest recipe here!

1. This news is only making me want to visit Cuba even more.

2. This boozy take on white chocolate cocoa from Little Ferraro Kitchen sounds amazing!

3. In further boozy news: eggnog jello shots. You’re welcome.

4. Heading to Ibiza (or just dreaming about it)? The Lazy Travelers have got your back on what to pack.

5. Not one for a gingerbread house? How about a pizza-bread house? Yes, real life.

Can you believe Hanukkah just happened and Christmas is next week!? I had the best intentions of baking all the time and gifting the most glorious food gifts, but time has slipped away from me.

But don’t worry. I made these festive treats that are so tasty, I’m sharing the recipe with you! Read the rest of this entry

Friday Five

It’s that time of year when I turn into a leaf photographing freak. I just can’t get over how gorgeous trees, shrubs, and bushes are when they turn. #sorrynotsorry

Let’s Friday Five, shall we?

1. I’m definitely looking forward to all of these seasonal items at my favorite grocery store!  I wouldn’t mind receiving the item on slide 11 in my Christmas stocking.. *hint, hint*

2. Good news for hungry United Airlines economy passengers!

3. This brings new meaning to playing with your food! How pretty!

4. As a lover of Bill Murray, this news made me happy. And laugh quite loudly..

5. I was only surprised by one city on this list of The Best American Destinations for Cheese Lovers. Care to take a stab at which city shocked me? Still need to make it to number 2…

Friday Five

Grab your beverage of choice, like a delicious mocha topped with whipped cream, chocolate drizzle and chocolate shavings: it’s Friday Five time! 1. Uhhhmmm mini beef wellingtons?! I want 1,000.

2. So I’m super jealous of all of those living in San Jose, San Francisco, New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia and Chicago. Why, you ask? Because of this! Has anyone tried it yet?!

3. Sally makes the best cookies, so I have no doubt her peppermint fudge is out of this world! Can’t wait to try.

4. Congrats to all of the restaurants that made USA Today’s 10 Best Restaurants for Dinner in Napa Valley list! Only two I haven’t been to yet.. Better get on it!

5. Umm.. If Prince Charles is worried about the future of French cheese, I think it’s a sign we need to gorge ourselves on all the French cheese we can get our hand on. Because, clearly, our other hand will be holding a glass of French wine. Duh.
