Homemade Pop Tarts
Real homemade Pop Tarts made with flaky pie crust and jam, so fast and easy you can make them in just a few minutes for breakfast!



Perfect Cinnamon Rolls
Best when served warm from the oven, these can easily be made vegan by substituting soy milk or almond milk and replacing the butter with animal-free margarine.



Cookie Cutter Mini Apple Pies
Remember those Hostess pies they used to sell in the school cafeteria? Apple, Lemon, Berry, Chocolate… with the sugary glaze? I grabbed a few tart apples and a box of pie crusts and ended up with a smaller, more flavorful (and much cuter!) version of the classic lunch box pie.



Roasted Garlic & Cheese Pierogies
Pierogies are amazing little Eastern European dumplings traditionally filled with a savory potato or cabbage filling. They are delicious, they are addicting, and they are a heck of a lot of fun to make.



Honey Orange Mulled Wine
Sweet and spicy warm red wine is the perfect thing to share and enjoy during the Holidays!



Homemade Candied Ginger
There are many ways to make delicious and spicy candied or crystallized ginger. It is a simple process: cook ginger, sweeten ginger, let ginger dry, coat ginger in sugar. The most important thing I discovered in my experiments is that the only real mistake you can make is a mess.



Vegetarian Philly Cheesesteaks
  Hearty and savory cheesy vegetarian sandwiches. You’ll never miss the steak!



Chocolate Mustache LollipopsChocolate Mustache Lollipops
These fun sweets are easy to make and take just minutes to prepare. If melting real chocolate into your mold, your lollipops will need to be stored cold and served chilled, right out of the freezer.



Lavender Sugar Cookies
Amazing little flower-scented sugar cookies with a crispy baked sugar glaze. You can leave out the lavender or you can substitute the same amount of any tasty edible flower or herb you like.



Ginger Lime Iced Green TeaGinger Lime Iced Green Tea
The ginger flavor in this tea recipe is very subtle. For a spicy ginger-loving kick, grate a piece of ginger root with a fine lemon zester instead of slicing it. So refreshing!



Red White & Blue SconesRed White & Blue Scones
Nigella Lawson’s amazingly delicious Lily’s Scones topped with sweetened whipped cream and fresh berries. Life is good when you can eat like this for breakfast.



Cinnamon Swirl Peach Upside-Down Cake
This cake is light, slightly soaked, not too sweet and perfect for serving in the morning with coffee or with spiced whipped cream for afternoon tea.



Eggnog Pancakes
Thanks to Joy the Baker for this recipe, pancakes have never made my kitchen smell so good! I used ground ginger instead of allspice, rum extract instead of vanilla extract, and I was out of buttermilk and baking powder so I had to make some…



Lemon Curd & Raspberry Jam TartsLemon Curd & Raspberry Jam Tarts
A variation of Homemade Pop-Tarts, this recipe uses pie crust from scratch and incorporates two flavors that were truly meant to be together: lemon and raspberry. I made these round using my measuring cup (you can also use a pint glass) but feel free to get out the clever cookie cutters and have fun!



Vegan Split Pea Soup
Every bit as tasty as the traditional bacon-infused version that I love so much, this vegan variation of split pea soup is healthy (look how green it is!) yet so savory and delicious that it still qualifies as comfort food, at least in my book.
