All pumpkin, all the time

I know I’m going against popular opinion here, but I don’t love pumpkin. I can appreciate the craft behind a good, homemade pumpkin pie but for some reason I’ve never really enjoyed the taste. However, I realize I’m in the minority here, given that pumpkin spice...

Christmas Cookie Pairing Time

One of my favorite childhood memories is making Christmas cookies. It was an annual tradition and we had a set menu: chocolate crinkles, cut-outs, snickerdoodles, snowballs, and probably a few others I’m forgetting.

When we made the cut-outs my siblings and I each got a pan of cookies to decorate, and then of course we got to eat them when they were finished! I always preferred the smaller cookies (especially the candy cane shaped ones!) because they were a little crunchier than the others. The cookies were, of course, left out for Santa on Christmas Eve and featured prominently on Christmas morning, when we ate cookies and candy for breakfast because my mom was too busy to make breakfast.
