Milk Punch Cheesecakes

Mardis Gras is one of those holidays that seems more fun to me from afar. I love the colors and sparkle and immense joy that shines through the photos, and I absolutely love New Orleans, but I’m just not a fan of crowds. I would rather visit New Orleans when I can get to lots of restaurants and try all the food, and not be limited by crowds and chaos. Since I love the idea of Mardi Gras, even though I’ve never been, I thought it would be fun to bring you a Mardis Gras recipe!

Chocolate Cherry Brownies

When I have a great idea for a recipe and it fails in testing, I despise throwing away the failure.  I hate to waste all those ingredients!  But these chocolate cherry brownies came about from two failed recipes with almost nothing going to waste and that makes me extra proud of these!

Every single thing in Boston has quite a history.  But there is a much lesser known story in Boston’s history.  More specifically, in the North End of Boston (also known as Boston’s Little Italy).

We’re right in the midst of the chaos that is the holiday season! It is such a fun time of year, but I always feel like I’m falling behind on everything! Which is why I am here, in December, after you’re probably all burnt out on pumpkin pie, to bring you a brand new pumpkin pie recipe!  Now I know it’s more of a Thanksgiving dessert, but today is a very special occasion for which this recipe would be perfect…not that Pie Thursday wouldn’t be a winning idea!

Cherry Cordial Hot Cocoa

It’s here.  We’re at the end of January and we have finally come to the last hot cocoa recipe of Hot Cocoa Month. I haven’t posted any boozy hot cocoa recipes because you can easily add booze to every recipe posted this month!  In fact, this Cherry Cordial Hot Cocoa can quickly become a cherry hot cocoa if you would prefer it.  I also have one more hot cocoa surprise coming for you as part of the bonus recipes, so be sure to check back for that.
