My Favorite Holiday Recipes

Friday, December 23, 2016

Here we are just days away from Christmas, and I am finally posting this.  You probably already have your menu all planned out, but in case you don't, here are a few of my favorites that I think would be amazing for Christmas or New Year's.

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....
