Gingerbraid (Gingerbread Challah)

We’re halfway through Hanukkah and on our way to Christmas. Living in a household that celebrates both holidays, I love combining them and making our own traditions.

Bourbon Caramel Apple Pie

There’s something to be said about a solidly delicious pie after Thanksgiving dinner. It’s classic and comforting. Seeing as I’m not a pumpkin girl, I decided to go with an apple pie. I hear it’s American or something. Well, I American’d it up some more by adding some bourbon caramel to it. (Any excuse, right?) It’s…

Christmas Ale Stew

As I write this column, the snow is falling outside my new place in the Cleve. I have moved from my beloved Philadelphia, where I have been for my entire adult life, back to my home state. While I am sad that I will be leaving so many wonderful people and places behind, I am…
