    Easy No Cook Divinity Candy

    This no-cook divinity recipe takes the guess work (and candy thermometer!) out of making the classic Christmas candy. This year’s advent of treats have an unintentional theme: Retro Sweets!

    Eggnog Fruit Cocktail Pie

    First introduced in 1956, this retro Eggnog Fruit Cocktail Pie is making a comeback! It features a creamy eggnog filling studded with colorful sweetened fruit throughout.

    Port Wine Jelly

    A jar of port wine jelly makes a wonderful homespun gift and it’s easy to make! The jelly’s flavors are nuanced with warm notes of caramel, plum and walnut. It goes well with savory main dishes, but it’s also good simply spread on toast. It’s my tradition to make a big batch  of port wine […] LEGGI TUTTO
