Cinnamon-Chip and Pecan Loaf Cake

I’ve been wanting to make this bread for awhile. A friend gave me some over a year ago and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. I don’t know why it took me so long, but I made it...

White Hot Chocolate

If you’re looking for dessert in drink form, look no further. This is an ultra-sweet ultra-delicious white hot chocolate. It’s actually very simple to make – I found it when I was looking online for a recipe that I...

Gingerbread Pancakes

I just realized I’ve posted 3 breakfast recipes in a row. I must have Christmas brunch on my mind! And since I’m thinking of it, if you’re looking for a delicious recipe for Christmas morning, you should definitely keep...
