  • Two Heavenly Chocolatey Holiday Sweet Treats.

    Two Heavenly Chocolatey Holiday Sweet Treats.

    Today we celebrate decadent brownies and a minty Christmas fudge. This post is a chocolate lover's dream come true, IMHO.

    Swirls of rich, creamy cheesecake stuffed in thick, fudge brownies. This might be one of the greatest dessert fusions of all time. Who doesn't love a good chocolate brownie? And very few people in the world hate on cheesecake. Combining them together just makes perfect sense!

    Fudge is a winter staple. It's a way of welcoming the holidays into our homes with sweet bites of chocolate heaven.

    Four Festive & Boozy Holiday Drinks

    We've put together four boozy holiday drinks that are the answer to 2020! From this tangy cranberry White Christmas Cocktail and the dreamy-creamy yuletide eggnog to a heart-warming Scandinavian mulled wine and a boozy holiday punch, we think these liquid gems are just what this holiday season needs. So have yourself a merry little Christmas...now.

    And, if you don't have a cocktail shaker you better get one quick before they're gone! This holiday it's been hard keeping anything in stock. As of my writing this post we still have a few shakers left, including a 26 ounce stainless shaker with strainer, a boston-style stainless steel shaker and a nifty 7-piece bar set. Hurry, before these become a memory.

  • Simple! No Knead Dutch Oven Bread

    Simple! No Knead Dutch Oven Bread

    This is our take on the classic no knead bread baked in a Dutch oven. The longer fermentation time helps create the structure of the bread, and the addition of apple cider vinegar adds a yeasty tang similar to a sourdough. Note that this recipe is sized for a 5-1/2 quart round Le Creuset Dutch oven which makes a loaf that is suitably sized for 4-5 people.
