Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone it is time to get serious about Christmas.  I got a big chunk of my shopping done on CyperMonday!  How about you?

Each year I always add a few new recipes to [Continue Reading…]

I have been on a bit of a cranberry craze this fall. First there were those yummy egg nog cranberry white chocolate muffins (which seriously, if you haven’t tried, you really need too!) and then the cranberry pineapple muffins which were so nice and moist.  And then I came up with the yummy cranberry cream cheese bars which were quite delightful!.

This recipe is a combination of two of my favorite bar cookie recipes.  The cream cheese layer from my lemon cheesecake bars and the crust and topping from the yummy sour cream apple bars.

For Thanksgiving Dinner I will be fixing my stand by appetizer – Roasted Garlic and Artichoke Dip   I love this dip and could eat the whole thing myself!! The other appetizer I will be [Continue Reading…]
