  • Candied Cranberries

    Dessert: This recipe was fun to play around with. Most candied cranberry recipes result in a crunchy berry, but these pop in your mouth.

  • Chocolate Mousse with Scottish Shortbread Garnish

    Dessert: This is part of my 2021 Christmas Eve Dinner, a gourmet feast I have made every year since 2010(except 2020). I started this tradition with my wife and in-laws, and it has grown to include my children and my parents when they moved to be closer to me in 2016.

  • Lola's Leche Flan

    Dessert: This recipe was given to me by my Lola (Grandma) and was a dessert our entire family looked forward to at all gatherings. She is 91 now and does not cook that often. However, since I've started making it for the family, having her approval and loving my take on this, means so much to me!

  • Copycat Fannie May Peppermint Ice

    Dessert: My mom loved these candies and we bought them from Fannie May every year. When Fannie May discontinued the sweet several years ago, we developed our own copycat recipe.
