Sadly, we are observing a month of no-sugar (from December 20th- January 20th), and I will be skipping all of these items, but you can revel in your stretchy pants, and make them all.

Great Recipes for Great Holidays:
Honey Bran Muffins - I mentioned these on Instagram the other day, because they are so dang good! They are the kind of thing you wouldn't make everyday, but they are SO great for a holiday!
Orange Crumble Muffins - Muffins don't come much better than these... I always love a good crumble on my muffin.
Lemon Spice Muffins - These are so pretty, and would make a great Christmas Morning snack.
Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies - I may have just posted these earlier this week, but these easily make it into a favorite category in my mind. They were incredible.
Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies - These are amazing. If you haven't stuffed your chocolate chip cookies with nutella, you are seriously missing out. They are amazing.
Caramel Apple Pie: This is basically my favorite pie recipe of all time. Last year, my brother-in-law requested I bring it to Thanksgiving dinner, and my father-in-law (who was in the restaurant business for 40 years) said it was the best apple pie he had ever had. I take that as a win. Try it out. I promise it won't disappoint.
Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles - This one is almost healthy. Great for people avoiding refined sugar, or trying to avoid a lot of the junk around the holidays.
Chocolate Hazelnut Pie - This one is quite a lot of work (although none of it is hard), but it is rich, and very, very delicious. And gluten-free.
Angel Food Cake - I always thought angel food cake was kind of a weird cake. Then I made it my own, it has become one of my favorite cakes out there. It is SOOO good.
Chocolate Lava Cakes - I can't ever have too many of these. They are simple, delicious and are tiny serving sizes, which I love!
Brioche Praline - A lot of work, but SOOO worth it. It is just like being in France.
Creamsicle Ice Cream - Dreamy, creamy and orangey!
My Favorite Brownies - They are my favorite. Enough said. You should just go make them now....
