If Clumbsy Cookie‘s Sweet and Spicy Candy Bar were a real product, I might be first in line to buy one because that would be the only thing easier than making a batch at home. The first step to making the candy bar is to make a batch of caramelized spicy peanuts, sweet with sugar and savory with ginger, paprika, cinnamon and curry. The nuts ... Read More »

Although panettone is a traditional Christmas dessert and we’re a bit past it at the moment, that doesn’t mean that you have to wait until next Christmas to enjoy one. Andrea’s Recipes has a recipe for Slow Rise Panettone that can be enjoyed all year long. The bread is time consuming and takes about 24 hours to make. Fortunately, most of the time is inactive. ...

It may be cold outside, but it’s never too cold for Santa and Snowman Milkshakes, like the ones Whisk made as holiday treats. A change from the usual hot chocolate, the milkshakes are made with real vanilla ice cream and milk, then decorated with chocolate syrup “painted” on the inside of the glasses to give the characters some, well, character.

Cooking by the Seat of My Pants used some cranberry sauce as dessert in White Chocolate Mousse Tartelets with Cranberry Compote. The tart shells are phyllo and can be homemade or storebought, and the white chocolate mousse is easier than you might think – but just ... Read More »

My Thanksgiving bread basket is going to feature some buttermilk biscuits this year. I tend to view them in a somewhat savory light – even though I sometimes top them with jam or honey – but not everyone has this type of take. Bread & Honey seems to see them as a backdrop for sweeter fillings or toppings, serving up Buttermilk Biscuits and Slow Cooker ... Read More »

Add Arty Sarayiote’s Koulourakia from Herbivoracious to the list of cookies to make this holiday season. The sweet, sesame-topped cookie twists are fun to make and a great departure from cut-out cookies because they are shaped by hand. The recipe comes from Amy Sedaris’s cookbook, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence, which is one of those cookbooks that is as fun to read as ... Read More »
