Red Velvet Sugar Cookie Bars
















Cake or cookie? Both are delicious. Both bring joy to any Holiday get together. So then why should we have to choose? Why can't we have our cake and cookie and eat them too?

We're here to tell you that yes, you can have both without having the guilt of eating two desserts! How, you ask? By combining the two into one amazing, decadent dish! That's right, a cake cookie, and believe it or not, it's a lot easier to make than you think!

Homemade Croutons
















What's your favorite salad topping? Whether it's cheese, veggies, seeds and grains, or perhaps just the dressing, we can all agree that what makes a basic salad even better is, well, whatever is on top!

Banana Cream Mini Pies
















Raise your hand if you love pie! Trust me, I know how you feel. While others look forward to turkey, potatoes, gravy, and stuffing, my thoughts turn to such things as Dutch Apple, Coconut Cream, and Muddy Gap! It just isn't Thanksgiving without the pies, am I right?

Almond Flour Cheddar Scones
















Greetings and Happy November Honeyville fans! I’m happy to be back today with another guest post for Honeyville.

It’s hard to believe that the holidays are upon us already…where does the time go? Today’s guest post features my easy peasy Mini Cheddar Scones. I wanted to create something to enjoy with soup and chili this winter that was more than a cracker but not quite a biscuit.  These Mini Cheddar Scones fit the bill perfectly! They are super cheesy as well as easy and can be baked until chewy or crispy, whichever you prefer. I added a little ground chipotle pepper to give them a little kick, but if you don’t prefer them spicy, just omit the chipotle. The flavor of these remind me of Cheese Straws, a popular Southern favorite and one of my husband’s favorites that his mother used to make him when he was growing up.

Green Bean Casserole Mini Pies
















What is a Holiday meal without those delicious side dishes, am I right? Whether it's the creamy mashed potatoes drizzled with gravy, the warm, sweet candied yams, or the tangy cranberry sauce, we can all agree, it just isn't a Holiday meal with the sides!

Lemon Pinwheel Cookies
















Lemon and cookies. Is there any tastier combination to enjoy during the Holidays? Whenever I think of warm, delicious cookies during this time of year, my mind almost always thinks of lemon. It's almost as if the two were made for each other.
