Winter is the perfect time to celebrate and cocktails are a necessity. We’ve rounded up some classics and some great new twists for you this year! 

holiday cocktails

I absolutely love the holidays because it feels more acceptable to pull out all the fancy drinks. And who doesn’t love a good excuse for a that!

These mini chewy honey cookies are made with all whole grains and natural sweeteners but they are so light and sweet no one ever knows! Just the right size for kids (and adults) after dinner splurge.

These mini chewy honey cookies are made with all whole grains and natural sweeteners but they are so light and sweet no one ever knows! Just the right size for kids (and adults) after dinner splurge.

We are so excited to be partnering with Madhava (makers of this amazing organic honey) to bring you this recipe! 

It is cookie season in full force! After weeks already of testing and cookie exchanges I am plumped up from all the white sugar and white flour that we lovingly pack into these little morsels. I am all for splurging occasionally but around our house we try really hard to keep the white flour and sugar at bay. But let me tell you….all the guys that were around the house were gobbling these guys up as fast as we could make them. Healthier and delicious is my favorite way to make the holidays happen.

These chewy honey cookies are hands down my new favorite way to do that and still be in the holiday spirit. We use spelt flour (our favorite whole grain flour), honey and coconut sugar to make these a healthier twist for the holidays.

    Carla - There’s just something about honey that brings a little extra oomph to baked goodies. For example, today I used honey in homemade nougat, which added a lovely flavor. I also sometimes put honey in my coffee (yes, coffee). Love the sound of these honey cookies. A nice break from chocolate.ReplyCancel

These hummus stuffed mushrooms are so easy to whip up and have just enough kick to keep you coming back for more. Great for game days and parties!

When Sabra asked us to partner with them to make up a delicious tail gating recipe I knew it was going to have to be manly. Tail gating=tons of men folk everywhere. It was pretty easy to decide that you can’t get a much more classic manly food than a stuffed mushroom.

When we first got married we all lived on a giant commune living situation on my parents 20 acres. Both my brothers lived within a 3 minute walk from us which resulted in a lot of commune dinners.
