I’m going to pretend like it hasn’t been forever, skip all the rambling and excuses for not blogging, and dive right in. These are worth the wait, I promise:
My mom always made cocoa in a big pot on the stove while we went sledding in the backyard (we had the perfect sledding hill). I helped her a few times when I was little, and then started making the recipe in a cup for myself almost every morning. We dipped hot buttered toast in it, which was amazing.

This is one of my favorite times of the year. My birthday is on January 5th, so I guess loving winter is in my blood! Christmas and New Year’s Day used to be fairly quiet events in my life. Once my siblings got married and had kids, my family moved our Christmas to New Year’s Day and Christmas Day was spent at my in-law’s house. Christmas morphed from piles of presents to an amazing amount of family members! This year we’re having Christmas day at my parent’s house and the day after at my in-law’s. Luckily, they only live 20 minutes apart. I’m currently buried in school, with two more finals to finish this week. Plus I get to go to the dentist on Thursday…yay. So, instead of creating a ton of Christmas recipes, I’ve been using some tried-and-true favorites, as well as a few new ones. I thought I’d share my family’s favorite Christmas treats and the changes we’ve made to them. I hope you enjoy this magical time of year!
Cappuccino Muffins. These have a hit of coffee flavor and are perfect for our traditional Christmas brunch! The swirl of cream cheese that’s been spiked with espresso powder is a must-have. The muffins themselves are loaded with flavor and mini chocolate chips for a texture that’s irresistible. My sister and I have made these for years, and we don’t have to change a thing!

I use Pinterest as a tool for finding new recipes, mostly. I can’t make a recipe unless I can see a picture of it, so Pinterest is like a lovely internet image search of fabulous recipes. Naturally, of the many I try, not all are winners. I adjust recipes all the time to suit what I have on hand or my personal preferences. I know I haven’t been blogging for very long (not on a consistent basis, at least), but here are my 10 favorite Pinterest recipes that I tried and enjoyed so much that I blogged about them! Follow me on Pinterest and I’ll let you know what recipes are actually worth making!
