I am a huge coffee cake fan, so I decide to try this Holiday Breakfast Cake recipe for my husband and the kids. This is a great recipe for Christmas morning, holiday gift, a brunch, a shower, dessert, or even a special snack to last all weekend. For dessert, you may want to add a simple icing, but it’s wonderful without it too! Serve at room temperature or warm beforehand. My favorite way to enjoy it is with a cup of coffee or for an afternoon snack.
Spiced to perfection, I am so excited to share this easy-to-make, No-Bake Spiced Cheesecake Bar recipe. Combine fresh orange zest with the delicious crunch of a Coconut Chia Granola crust in these cheesecake bars made with Nature’s Path Chia Plus™ Coconut Chia Granola. It’s my latest granola crush with 5 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber per serving with the addition of the superfood, chia seeds! It works fabulous in the curst of this bar recipe! Add a little more zest to the top if you’re in love with the burst of citrus flavor in these bars (I am). This is what I will be making this week for some holiday parties and get togethers. I made this for some friends, and they loved them! Enjoy for holiday gifts, Christmas or Hanukkah dessert. Here’s the nutrition information so serve your guests and friends a healthier holiday treat.

I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving holiday! I did! I completed a huge amount of holiday shopping (I am so thrilled, and we had amazing family time!) Now it’s time to get back to the grind and think about work and kids (and more holiday organization). I made this recipe today for Expresso Fudge form the Cooking Channel Stars and mixology duo, Alie Ward & Georgia Hardstark. I will be making this homemade fudge recipe for teacher gifts and holiday get-togethers. This recipe is made with NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Espresso Intenso pods which adds to it’s great coffee flavor.
When I heard about Abigail Johnson Dodge’s new book “Mini Treats & Hand-Held Sweets”, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy. Abigail is a widely respected baker, food writer, contributing editor to Fine Cooking Magazine and more (I love her!). Her new book features 100 mouth watering desserts designed for home bakers of every level including easy to serve, last minute treats, party ideas, kids snack recipes, gluten free, non-dairy, vegan, egg-less and low-fat options. I am so excited to share her book and this awesome recipe for Rocky Road Fudge.
Abby says, “This fun little recipe is meant to inspire your whimsical, creative side. As with all of my recipes, I encourage you to add your own twists and to experiment with your own favorite flavors. The add-in possibilities for this easy-to-make fudge are practically endless, so switch in whatever you have in the pantry—even gummy worms would work! The only thing I wouldn’t take out would be the marshmallows—they’re too iconic to eliminate, but that’s just this baker’s opinion.”
