  • Cheddar Pierogies with Caramelized Onions and Bacon. Took my favorite childhood food (hello Mrs. T's Pierogies) and made it SO. MUCH. BETTER. Hello to homemade potato + cheddar filled dumplings. Every pierogi is a little cheesy, full of creamy potatoes, layered with caramelized onions...and salty bacon. Nothing is better…or cozier…on a cold night. Shared the recipe on HBH - linked in profile. PS. Pierogies or Pierogi...there is some debate 😬
  • Salted Caramel Pretzel Snickerdoodles. These are snickerdoodles, but better... because browned butter, chocolate-covered caramel chunks (decadent, but oh so good), cinni sugar and a little pinch of flaky sea salt. Each cookie is slightly crisp on the edge but soft and gooey in the center…with just a little pretzelly crunch. Sooo yes, you should bake cookies on a Tuesday night because it's December and that's what you do. Then? Take the leftovers to work and make everyone’s day. ‘Tis the season for giving!
