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. This year, I did just that by making some Gingerbread Challah. If there’s one thing that always disappoints about gingerbread, it’s that it’s not actual bread. If there’s…

I bake cookies for Christmas all the time. Occasionally I throw in some candy or nuts. But how much can you really do with nuts? I wanted to embody what I love about Christmas into one dessert.

I’ve been listening to some Christmas music… a lot of Christmas music… lately. But I’ve been actually listening to it and processing the lyrics. I have to say, I don’t like what I’m hearing.

Porky Porter Cups

Sometimes I get a little touchy about a subject and I let it come through in my writing. This is one of those times. I write a column for DrinkingCraft.com which is much less punchy than what you read here. This week’s may have had a tiny bit of punch to it. I created a…

One thing that was always a huge hit in my home growing up was “puppy chow”… also known as Muddy Buddies. Basically, Chex cereal covered in peanut butter, chocolate and powdered sugar. A super simple recipe that’s always a hit. In order to advance it a little, I decided it needed a little salty flavor,…
