There was a time in my 20s when the oven was the most used appliance in my kitchen; almost as much as my coffee maker. I loved baking so much back then, that friends constantly showed up at my apartment knowing there would be something good to eat.

After living in Germany, I will always associate holiday time with speculoos cookies. At every Christmas market throughout Europe, you will find beautiful and perfectly spiced cookies.

Baking Christmas cookies is always a tradition that I celebrate with my Mom every holiday season. Now that I live 2 hours away from her, it’s the thing I look most forward to! We spend the weekend listening to our favorite Christmas music and whipping up all of our family favorite cookie recipes passed all the way down from my great-great-grandma (as you can see by the faded writing and very messy recipe cards.)

The holidays are crazy enough so it feels good to get the holiday baking out of the way early!
Melting moments is in the top three of my favorites we make each year. They’re such a simple recipe – 6 ingredients total and a unique texture and taste that really stands out on that festive cookie tray.

Snack Attack! Never have those words had more meaning to me than since having two young kids. Little kids have an amazing ability to go from being completely disinterested in food to ravenous in what feels like seconds. We have been on the go a ton, and for smooth sailing when the moment strikes, I try to be prepared and keep a snack at the ready.
Zucchini is a surprisingly awesome fruit.
