Caramels with Chocolate and Pecans


Several years ago my sister Alli brought to my attention a wonderful recipe for caramels that didn’t require the individual pieces of candy to be wrapped.

The Weekend Report: My Favorite Christmas Tradition


If you had to choose your favorite thing about Christmas time, what would it be?

Chocolate Cream Pie!


When I was newly married and highly inexperienced at cooking (this is no joke, I honestly didn’t know a thing! The cooking experience I brought along to my marriage consisted of the Lion House taffy I had learned to make at my college job. You feel bad for MyHandsomeHusband, don’t you? He did most of […]
