Christmas baking is like none other. I think we all want to impress not just our loved ones, but ourselves as by baking and making amazing candies and treats. I’ve come from a long tradition of baking and candy-making during the holidays. So every year, not only do I have the traditions I like to keep, but I also like to add new recipes and concoctions. These cookies are practically candy, especially since they involve candy itself! They’re simple to make but also a crowd pleaser and usually one of the first items to be eaten.
You’re probably thinking: how can one person tell another how to decorate their Christmas tree? And you’re partly right! A Christmas tree is an expression of the owner. It can show the family history or be a modern piece of art. Colors, styles, ornaments and trends may change, but certain rules and tips seem to hold true through time, at least for me. There are a few things that I always try to stick with in order to have a tree that looks uniform and “put together.” You don’t need to have the perfect tree but why not have one that makes guests – and hopefully yourself – stop and say wow!
Once you take a gorgeous turkey out of the oven, the hard part is over. You have brined and baked a perfect bird, but you don’t want to mutilate it with bad carving skills. I have a few tips to make sure you carve the bird with ease, producing perfect slices and pieces for everyone to enjoy!
Gravy is the perfect accessory for the Thanksgiving meal. It compliments the meat, potatoes and anything else. When executed well, it may not stand out, but that means it is doing it’s job perfectly.
