Super soft and thick, these cashew milk chocolate chocolate chip cookies get their richness from the unsweetened cocoa powder and a generous amount of semi-sweet chocolate chips.

One of my favorite things to do in the afternoon is sip of a cup of coffee, munch on some sweet treats and catch up with my emails or social media. It’s my 30 minute break before I need to turn the stove on to make dinner. It’s like the calm before the storm.

While making dinner I have to make sure my little princess has finished her homework, help her with the piano practice. Dinner is followed by a board game or two and our bedtime routine. On a good day, it’s around 5 hours after my afternoon break when I get to sit down again and relax for few more minutes. And you can be sure I’m ready for another sweet treat, like one of these cashew milk chocolate chocolate chip cookies. …

Toasted ciabatta slices topped with beans, tomato and raisins, bruschetta is a quick and easy party appetizer, last minute dinner idea or a afternoon snack!

Throwing a dinner party is always a lot of work. No matter the time of the year, no matter how many guests you have over, there’s always lots of cooking involved. It may be just me, but it seems I end up slaving in the kitchen for at least a day prior to the party. Sometimes for two days and it has happen to still be in the kitchen during the party. You know, last-minute heating up that dish, warming up that dish or pulling steaming hot dinner rolls out of the oven.

It was exhausting and I wasn’t enjoying having my friends over anymore. The thought of holidays, birthday party of just get-togethers was giving me goose bumps.

Not anymore! Warm bars are the answer! And this beans, tomato and raisins bruschetta is a party saver! (it really did to the last impromptu get-together I hosted last weekend)

Not only bruschetta is a great appetizer but it can be a snack or a dinner also! It’s so versatile and my simple recipe is definitely a winner! …

There is nothing like waking up to a delicious eggs benedict casserole awaiting you with little or no effort on your part just ready to be placed in a hot oven until the aroma wafts through the house.

With all the stress that Christmas morning brings, there’s nothing like a make-ahead casserole to save the day. I absolutely love egg casseroles. After all what’s not to love? You can have them for breakfast, lunch or for dinner and they are so versatile. You can add pretty much any leftovers you have on hand, leave it overnight in the fridge for the flavors to combine and bake when needed.

Casseroles like this are perfect when you have a long day ahead of you and don’t have time to prepare a good breakfast in the morning.

This eggs benedict casserole is so hearty and comes together in no time. Just pop it in the oven while the kids are opening their presents….

Melt-in-your-mouth buttery cookies, these shortbread like snowball cookies are one of the most requested baked treats at the cookie exchange. One bite and you'll understand why they are so addictive!

Snowball cookies always put a smile on my face. They remind me of childhood and my mom always busy in the kitchen making sure everything is ready by Christmas eve.

I was probably 7 or 8 when she asked me for the first time to help her in the kitchen with the Christmas cooking. I couldn’t do much, I was terrified of touching anything for fear I would break or spill something. She sat me down on a chair and asked me to break the nuts.

I could see her, in the corner of my eye, carefully measuring the ingredients and talking to herself making sure there will be plenty of cookies for everyone. She loved having friends and family coming over for holidays. …

There’s no surprise Christmas is my favorite time of the year. The smell of fresh tree, the hot cocoa, the lights, the presents but above all the candy cane! I love anything candy cane and already looking for excuses to get my hands on some more. Good thing they are cheap and widely available, right?

From candy cane chocolate bars, to candy candy candles my house smells like a candy factory.

My husband on the other hand, he’s not friends with candy cane. Or so I thought until he ate half of these brownies in one day. And I’m not blaming him! You see, these are not just some boring brownies with candy cane flavored frosting on top.

No, these brownies are one of the best brownies I’ve made! They are so rich, so dense and so fudgy! To make them even more irresistible, I finished them with a generous amount of peppermint buttercream and crushed candy cane! Cut them is small pieces and have a glass of milk close by, you’ll need it!
