Holiday Pudding


I never realized how central a Holiday Pudding could be to the season until I crafted one of my very  own. The premise is quite simple: a moistened and sweetened combination of bread, nuts, dried fruits, and a bit of liqueur. The resulting dessert was like placing a star upon a tree: it made the table complete. The pudding is filled with festive flavors of the season, pairing nicely with the texture-laden creamy topping. It was easy to make with quite the elegant finish. Enjoy!!

Cranberry 'n Pork Stuffing


The holidays just don't seem complete without a batch of stuffing warmly resting on the table. This Cranberry 'n Pork Stuffing includes a significant helping of meat and veggies, a dash of wine and some dried fruit and nuts, inspired by a few holiday specials seen in this year's travels. At several parties I hosted, the stuffing went faster than many of my pastries or desserts! Serve a batch of this delightful dressing with dinner or as an appetizer and have a savory holiday! Enjoy!!

Egg Nog Shortbread


Around the holidays we can all certainly appreciate a smidgen of simplicity. These little Egg Nog Shortbreads are the perfect crowd pleaser, as part of the dessert spread, or even as a tasty introduction to the things to come. Simply combine the ingredients, form, and bake. The egg nog glaze adds just the right seasonal taste for the waiting and (oh so) hungry mouths. This year I featured the handheld morsels next to a familiar bite-sized favorite: Pecan Pie Bars. Enjoy!!

Good Morning Bun


A morning slice of toast with a bit of butter and fresh jam sounds like a great start to a wholesome breakfast. This Good Morning Bun wraps up this notion in a favorable and fluffy new form. The buttery dough softly hugs a dollop of fresh jam with a light dusting of powdered sugar to add a pleasantly sweet finish. As its name suggests, a Good Morning Bun makes a perfect new addition to the breakfast or brunch menu, or as a light snack across the day. Enjoy!!

Buttered Pecan Cake with Rum Buttercream


The time for cake making is past due so I wanted to introduce this aromatically and texturally inviting Buttered Pecan Cake with Rum Buttercream. The yellow cake is independently delicious but delightfully augmented by the surrounding flavors. The pecan filling is reminiscent of pecan pie and the rum buttercream adds a satisfying touch to the layered treat. Anytime is a great excuse for this particular cake so why not make that "anytime" now, adding it to this season's collection of delicious eats. Enjoy!!

Apple Crumble Muffins


Now is the perfect time for comfort brought by the inviting aroma of another home cooked snack. These Apple Crumble Muffins were a creation to support this notion and to use the last of a few apples that were all too ready to be eaten. The muffins have little bursts of moisture from the warmed apple filling swirled into the smooth buttery batter. The crumble topping offers a textural change with the added excitement of cinnamon, pleasing to both the tongue and the eye. Make a batch and warm up to your friends. It's a small hug in a muffin and its time to pass it along! Enjoy!!
