Who doesn’t love a good cup of hot chocolate on a cold day? We do! Over the years we perfected our hot chocolate recipe to be exactly what we wanted; a rich, chocolatey but not too sweet, hot beverage. Most of the packaged varieties just did not have the deep chocolate flavor and were overpowered…
Cold wintry days beg for soothing, warm drinks to be served. Spices like cinnamon, star anise and cloves are a perfect complement to warm winter drinks and satisfy our need for comfort and warmth.
Cranberries and pecans are a few of my favorite flavors for the fall and wintertime. The flavors of sweet, tart, nutty, and earthy are all packed into fluffy cream based scones which, in my opinion, are perfect for any time of the day, not just breakfast or brunch.
One of my favorite fall flavors from my childhood is pumpkin kasha, as we called it. Back then it was a very basic recipe consisting of a large pumpkin, rice, and milk.
Scones are like a blank canvas that could be transformed into a deliciously beautiful teatime treat by adding various fruits, nuts, extracts, etc.
The smell of homemade biscuits baking on a cold morning is sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face! Using cream instead of the traditional butter and buttermilk makes this recipe quicker and easier to pull off on a busy morning giving every morning a perfect start!
No fancy boxed version of chicken stock will compare to homemade. The components are quite simple, organic free-range chicken, herbs, aromatics, and root vegetables.
Homemade biscuits are just the best! The corn in this gluten-free recipe gives the biscuits a pleasant crunch and sweetness.
A comforting, family dish that can be easily adjusted and customized to please even the pickiest of eaters, chicken pot pie is a cool weather tradition for us.
The first time I made pumpkin pancakes was a few years ago, when fueled by a desire to have our own garden in Southern California, we planted pumpkin seeds that were given to us by a good friend.
