Toffee - Our Kind of Wonderful


K’s family makes toffee each Christmas, and it’s a tradition that he absolutely loves. We celebrated Christmas super early this year, around Thanksgiving, as my sister was in town, so come December we didn’t really feel like it was Christmas. To help with that, I decided I would try my hand at making toffee, as […]

Maple Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Cranberries

Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries

Brussels sprouts have quickly become a staple in our cooking, and we even get excited to pick up a bag or 2 of them from Costco each month. I’d never had brussels sprouts until getting married. You see, my dad hates them, and he doesn’t really hate any foods, so I just always assumed they […]

N Family Wassil Recipe - Our Kind of Wonderful

N Family Wassil Recipe

K (the husband) grew up with the tradition of having this homemade Wassil the night they decorated the Christmas tree.

The whole timing of […]

Crock Pot Cranberry Apple Cider - Our Kind of Wonderful

Crock Pot Cranberry Apple Cider

All I can say about this drink is wow. Seriously, wow. K (the husband) said he might even like this better than his homemade Wassil. That is saying something. We both agree this will be one of our Christmas traditions. It’s exactly what I’d want to have on Christmas morning!

White Chocolate Dipped Peppermint Sugar Cookies - Our Kind of Wonderful

White Chocolate Dipped Peppermint Sugar Cookies

We decided to try something new this year for Christmas neighbor gifts, and K loves peppermint, so when I found this recipe on Cooking Classy it was a no brainer. These were so much easier than I thought they’d be, and everyone said they were awesome, so they’re definitely going down as a holiday must […]

Gingerbread Cookies - Our Kind of Wonderful

Gingerbread Cookies

Our traditional Christmas neighbor treats are these cookies, and this year we added White Chocolate Peppermint Dipped Sugar Cookies to the mix, which were a huge hit, as were the gingerbread cookies. I was always a bit intimidated by gingerbread cookies, but trust me, these are so simple, and tasty (I know, kinda surprising)! We […]
