Boozy Cinnamon White Hot Chocolate - the perfect way to warm up on chilly days! Easy homemade white hot chocolate with Fireball Whiskey and marshmallows on top!

Heeeey guys, one last post before Christmas! I couldn’t leave you without something delicious and boozy.

Because, as I tell you every year, I’m not doing my Christmas Eve all night wrapping session without Elf on in the background and some kind of delicious beverage next to me.

Before we get to that though, I wanna say thank you for coming back, for all the emails, for checking on me if I don’t post for a few days, for stopping me in Target and saying hi, for everything this blog has given me. These last couple years have been a real rollercoaster for me and having this little space on the internet full of people who share the same interest as me has been one of the only constants in my life. I appreciate it all more than I can express.

This may be my last post of the year (other than my yearly favorite recipes – that’s still happening) so I hope you have a fabulous Christmas and a safe and happy New Year!

Turkey, Potato, and Corn Chowder - rich, delicious chowder in less than 30 minutes!

Heeeey guys, happy first day of winter break!

My kids are already driving me crazy. Shocker, right?

It’s crazy cold right now and nobody wants to go outside and run off their energy. So far we’ve gone a movie, taken the dogs to see Santa, decorated cookies, watched Home Alone 4 times, and eaten 3 batches of my mom’s Christmas mix.

Please send ideas.

Grapefruit Rosemary Sparkler - easy, festive drink recipe for all your holiday parties. Grapefruit juice and Prosecco with a fresh rosemary simple syrup!

Okay, I know I swore that I’d never be obsessed with cheeseboards but it’s happened. I’m obsessed.

I used to never keep crackers and cheese and weird jams and all that on hand but now? What if we need a cheeseboard and some yummy drinks on a Sunday night to go with our 5th viewing of Home Alone 2?

I’ve made at least 3 already this month. They’re just the perfect easy dinner or so fun to throw together if you decide to have a last minute get together.
