Thank you so much for following me on Instagram! Here is the Peppermint Cheesecake recipe I promised you. Be sure to print or save it as it will disappear after the holidays. It is a feature recipe in my new book So Much to Celebrate. If you like this recipe, you're going to love the book! Preorder it here! Merry Christmas!
We take our Christmas card very seriously—always embracing the holidays by showcasing red and green, Christmas trees, and this year our vintage Wagoneer. We had such a blast with our photographer/friend Amy Cherry out at Country Cove Christmas Tree Farm in Murfreesboro Tennessee.
I had the pleasure of going on Talk of the Town last Friday to bake my Soft-Baked Sugar Cookies. The holidays can be nuts, so I set out to make a sugar cookie recipe that is super simple and totally kid-friendly. These are not only fun to eat but a joy to make!
It's not Thanksgiving without sweet potatoes and this recipe takes the cake. It is simple and totally delicious with a smooth texture and crisp sweet crust.
Ya'll, Thanksgiving is less than a week away!! I wanted to bring you just a couple of my family's favorite Thanksgiving recipes so you can make them too.
Let's start with this Carrot Soufflé. It is like eating dessert with your turkey. No shame in this Thanksgiving game ...
The stockings are not quite hung by the chimney with care ... but I'm working on it! Christmas decorating started today and to get us in the mood, I turned on Elf, lit a fraiser fur candle, and whipped up a batch of these Chewy Molasses Cookies.
All my favorite things have collided—a feminine autumn tailgate with delicious food and sparkling wine set at a picturesque farm in Franklin featuring a vintage aqua truck and dreamy puppy dog. PLUS a give-a-away for my followers? Wow—this one's something special!
I love living in the South but one thing I've always wanted to participate in is the Northern tradition of apple picking. Yes, we have great summer peaches and blackberries here in the South but there is something about the crisp fall air and the idea of picking apples with your family that makes me, well, a little jealous.
I can not help but put pumpkin in everything this time of year! Pound cake is a versatile dense cake that really lets the addition of seasonal ingredients shine.
For my birthday last weekend I wanted to make a fun signature cupcake inspired by fall. My favorite autumn treat is a caramel dipped apples so naturally I knew exactly where to start.
Now back away from that box of same-old pops. These surprising DIY popsicles prove that it’s easy—and cool—to be different.
I recently hosted a garden party to celebrate the launch of Draper James' latest summer collection. I invited some of my girlfriends for an alfresco luncheon out on the back porch and we had the best time giggling in our new Draper James gingham!
When I was little, my mom worked as a floral designer. I grew up cutting Queen Anne's Lace with her on the side of the road, de-thorning roses, taking trips to the wholesaler, and watching her create huge beautiful arrangements for weddings. She taught me so much and recently we had a blast collaborating to create a flower arranging how-to for Your Williamson Magazine.
I was recently lucky enough to be invited to attend "Biscuit Bootcamp" at Brentwood's Holler & Dash. I mean, let's be honest, I invited myself and I was lucky enough they said yes!
My sweet friend, Evin Krehbiel (of Evin Photography) and I met up with Holler & Dash's Culinary Director, Chef Brandon Frohne for a lesson in buttermilk biscuit making and well, a lot of laughs.
Homemade pizza night is one of our favorite family dinner nights. E loves to help press out the dough and laughs so loud when I throw it in the air, yelling "peazzA."
One evening we came home from a date night and the babysitter had ordered Chinese food and said, "you're daughter ate all my fried rice!" Me, always looking for new and fresh weeknight dinner ideas, had an AH-HA moment. Why not make a healthier chicken fried rice at home?
I had a huge bowl of green apples left over from a photoshoot. Mmmm ... what to make with them? What. to. make..... apple crumb cake with cinnamon and oats atop a moist sour cream cake with a hint of almond extract. Yep. That's it. Start peeling apples.
An organized pantry is a real relief for the home cook. Knowing where your go-to items are, and having a system in place to re-stock the pantry when necessary helps in meal planning and grocery shopping. When you know where everything is, you’ll waste less and thus spend less. Plus, getting that panty in order is easier than you think!
Weeknight dinner inspiration can be a challenge. My family wants to eat dinner every. single. night. It's exhausting! Trying to come up with something simple to make, healthy, and delicious is a tall order. I've really been working to bring you just that—easy weeknight meals that everyone will love, staring with these Barbecue Chicken and Spinach Stuffed Sweet Potatoes.
We're all looking for easy and healthy weeknight family meals. This Yogurt Crusted Chicken is crispy, tender, versatile, and simple to make.
