I didn’t celebrate Christmas growing up. I got my first Christmas tree after I moved in with my best friend when I was in law school. I first celebrated Christmas with my now-husband a year or two into our relationship. I had this picture in my head of what waking up on Christmas morning should be like: wake up, look out the window to see if it had snowed, bake cinnamon rolls (from the tube, of course) and brew coffee while we sit on the floor in our PJs and bathrobes and exchange gifts.

Living in New England, I continuously discover things that are local or regional to my hometown in Kentucky. Recently I discovered that people here are not familiar with Puppy Chow.

Since I’m going to be traveling while you’re reading this, I thought I would share a story with you about my last trip. Last month I went home to Louisville.

It’s (once again) been a while since I’ve given you a new recipe, so I’m coming back strong with an easy, no-bake recipe: Unicorn Pie! Kellogg’s makes a vanilla cupcake flavored cereal that they call Unicorn cereal. It is a limited edition flavor, and as far as I knew, it was only available at the Kellogg’s store in New York. Then one day, I’m just minding my own business walking through BJ’s (it’s the New England equivalent of Sam’s Club) and I see a huge box of Unicorn Cereal! It’s probably the equivalent of two family size boxes. I don’t really need that much Unicorn cereal, but it was my only option so I went with it. Continue Reading
