Sausage Potatoes au Gratin

All these eaters ask about the potatoes au gratin first, before anyone ever asks about the turkey. Regardless of how much […]

Apple Spiced Coffee Cake

Before we left for Australia there was a bit more pantry cleaning we needed to do, trying to minimize any produce going to waste.

Chocolate Bourbon Balls- Three Ways

Chocolate Bourbon Balls- Three Ways

Diane was initially going to write this post, but after 1 bourbon ball she quietly passed out on the couch. Silly Asian, they aren’t that alcoholic. Although I think she may be faking to get out of writing a post. I’ve always loved a good rum ball. Actually, the love extends to just about any […]

Dark Chocolate Gingersnap Cookies with Holiday Stencils

For the first time in my life I think I had a chocolate hangover. Maybe it was eating three additional pieces of See’s candy before I went to bed that threw me over the edge. I’m the savory-girl. The girl that hovers over the holiday buffet table where the cheesy dips are displayed and quietly […]

Roasted Acorn Squash w/ Sage, Pine Nuts & of course, Butter

Baked acorn squash was never a dish that I obsessed over. Because of my love of butternut squash, acorn squash always seemed to hide in in the shadows of my other squash love affairs. It wasn’t until I started food blogging that I really understood the appeal of these cute acorn shaped globes.
