Christmas Cookies – Recipe

Print PDF Christmas Cookies – For this recipe, I’m going to give you two different versions. To be honest, they taste almost exactly the same. Why am I giving you two versions that taste the same? One is a healthier whole wheat and low sugar version and one is a more traditional version. I make the whole wheat for my family, but I know some people are going to want the white flour version they grew up with. Again, I would like to say that they taste almost identical (my kids ate both when I was testing these recipes and didn’t even notice). So even though they’re...

Print PDF Pumpkin Eggnog (pumpkin eggnog recipe with instructions and video tutorial follow)- Eggnog is a Christmas time tradition in our house as I’m sure it is in many of yours.

My Son and I love the pumpkin eggnog (especially in coffee, think pumpkin latte), my oldest daughter and our three year old love traditional eggnog, our 12 year old daughter loves chocolate eggnog (difficult to find in stores), my husband needs...

Puerto Rican Rice and Beans (Brown Rice) – Recipe

Print PDF Puerto Rican Rice and Beans – You know how there are certain foods that warm you up inside and make your tummy happy? They’re usually foods that you grew up eating, things Mom or Grandma or someone you love made for you. They’re the foods that we refer to as “comfort foods”. Well, I didn’t grow up Puerto Rican, nor did I grow up eating this dish, however, over the years, it has become one of my comfort foods. This is another one of those dishes that my wonderful Puerto Rican in-laws introduced me to and I have to say once again that Puerto...

Pumpkin-Crumb Muffins (Whole Wheat) with Cream Cheese Filling – Recipe

Print PDF Pumpkin-Crumb Muffins-The toughest critic of my food in the house is definitely my baby. She is one and a half or I guess technically 19 months old. She is a great gage on how well a recipe turned out because she is completely honest and does not worry about sparing my feelings. If she likes the food, she eats it. If she doesn’t like the food a very dramatic display of her wiping out her mouth and scraping her tongue with her fingers ensues, she follows up by throwing the said food onto the floor and screaming as if she’s been insulted or injured. It’s much cuter...

Cranberry-Pecan Muffins (Whole Wheat) – Recipe

Print PDF Cranberry-Pecan Muffins (recipe and instructions with video tutorial follow)- Every year at Thanksgiving I make a giant batch of cranberry sauce for the family dinner. This year, while shopping at my neighborhood wholesale store (where mayo comes by the gallon), I bought my cranberries. They had a five pound bag for the same price I usually get two pounds for and I am one of those people who doesn’t pass up a good deal or a sale. Lost in the excitement of getting more than twice as much for the same price, I didn’t consider that this bag would be occupying the better...

Spiced Cranberry Sauce – Recipe

Print PDF Spiced Cranberry Sauce (recipe and instructions with video tutorial follow) - Cranberry sauce is one of those things that for some reason most people don’t make at home from scratch. I’m not quite sure why though so I’ve thought it through and tried to understand. So, I think these may be some of the reasons. Reason one, you’re being bullied by relatives who like the can shaped cranberry sauce and are afraid to show up at their house with something that doesn’t hold it’s shape and also doesn’t need to be sliced.  Or reason number two,...
