Merry Christmas from Texas! I’m here visiting my husband’s family and I wanted to make sure I wished all of you a very Merry Christmas! Please enjoy a few of my favorite Christmas recipes and projects over the past few years.
Gingerbread Snowflakes My most favorite cut-out Christmas cookie, hands down. Look no further for a gingerbread cookie recipe because this one IS it—warm, spicy flavors and a soft and chewy cookie…it doesn’t get much better than that!
Chocolate Peppermint Bark Cookies I love the combination of peppermint and chocolate—spread that over some buttery shortbread and you’ve got something beautiful.
Coconut Macaroons I like throwing theses into my Christmas cookie rotation because they’re different from all the other cookies, plus they look like snowballs! You can’t go wrong with this Barefoot Contessa recipe!
Starry-Eyed Treats This one’s for the kiddos. My toddler loves these, probably because they’re made with foods that are identifiable to her; pretzels, chocolate, and M&Ms. I like putting these in a candy dish on my Christmas dessert buffet. Warning: they’re like Lay’s potato chips…I dare you to eat just one!
Biscochitos What I miss most about living in New Mexico is the holiday season: luminaries in front of quaint adobe homes, tamales, posole, and biscochitos! If you like the taste of anise, you’ll love these cookies!
Homemade Peppermint Patties There’s something completely satisfying in making homemade versions of favorite products. For me, homemade=love.
Almond Roca Brittle Last Christmas season my family lovingly nicknamed this recipe “Christmas Crack”. I think between private consumption and gifts, I made 9 pans of this brittle! Soooo, so, SOOOOOOO good!
Gingerbread Cupcakes Sometimes you need to break out of the Christmas cookie mold and make something different. These cupcakes are not for the faint of heart—their gingerbread spices are nice and zesty. These would definitely keep you warm on a cold winter’s day!
Cranberry-Pecan Chicken Salad What I like to call some good ol’ “chick food”, which also happens to be my #1 viewed recipe of all time!
CHRISTmas Subway Art Quite possibly my favorite subway art to date as it centers around the reason for the season!
Jingle all the Way Shadow Box Tutorial I love this little project, plus it’s quick and easy!
Christmas To-Do List Printables These are so cute for keeping track of all the fun things you have planned during the holiday season!
