Best Ever Eggnog Recipe

This eggnog recipe is rich and creamy and can be served chilled or warm. Make a pitcher of this delicious winter drink in just five minutes!

While some recipes may seem intimidating, it’s actually quite simple to make delicious eggnog right at home. I have been making this recipe for over 10 years and everyone that tries it asks for it.

Use up any leftover eggnog to make Spiced Eggnog Cookies! They are tender, chewy, and taste just like the real thing.

Wassail Hot Apple Cider is another festive drink perfect for chilly evenings. Mulling spices and tart fruit juice this recipe extra delicious.

If you’re looking for more grown up beverages, you’ll love a Nutcracker Cocktail or Grandma's Sugar Cookie Martini. Both are creamy and sweet, perfect for any holiday party!

Savory Monkey Bread + Video

Savory monkey bread is perfect for lazy weekends and holiday guests. Assemble everything in the pan, let the dough rise, then bake until browned!

Soft and tender bites of dough are coated with sausage, fluffy scrambled eggs, gooey cheese, and topped with a garlic herb butter - it’s the pull-apart breakfast of your dreams!

You can even assemble this cheesy egg and sausage bread the night before and pop it in the oven first thing in the morning.

If you love savory monkey bread, try some of my famous bomb recipes. They can be made in a casserole dish for that pull-apart feel, but all of the extras are stuffed in the middle.

There are plenty of flavor options to choose from like pizza, jalapeƱo popper, and Philly cheesesteak. Even one stuffed with homemade meatballs!

Craving more nostalgia? Recreate a classic pistachio fluff! All you need are a handful of ingredients and 5 minutes of your time.

Or, try one of my decadent cheesecake salads instead. I have over a dozen flavors and combinations to choose from, each even better than the last.

Papa's Italian Braciole Recipe + Video

This Italian braciole may take hours to cook, but that first bite is well worth the wait! Make it tonight for the ultimate comfort food meal.

Thin strips of steak are stuffed with salami, fresh herbs, and a hard-boiled egg then simmered in a seasoned tomato sauce until tender.

Every bite melts in your mouth and explodes with incredible flavor, leaving you wanting more.

If you love this Italian braciole recipe, try my slow cooker Beef Bourguignon or this easy lasagna.

Both are incredibly easy to prepare but are impressive enough to serve to dinner guests or for the holidays.

Churro Toffee Disney Recipe

Disney churro toffee is a magical combination of all your favorite sweet flavors. Enjoy buttery, sugary bites without ever leaving home!

This is my absolute favorite treat at both Disneyland and Disney World. Seriously, I grab at least 5 on my way home because they keep so well and I can enjoy the magic a little longer.

Now, I can whip up a batch whenever a craving strikes! They make wonderful treats to tuck into gift baskets as well.

You can find several other Disney recipe favorites around here such as churro bites and a creamy Dole Whip!

For something more savory, try these corn dogs or a Monte Cristo sandwich like the one at Cafe Orleans.
