Delightful Delectables- Mini Gingerbread Cocoa Buddies

by Maggie Kelleher

I’ve been in the Christmas spirit this week. And in combination with some free time to craft to my hearts desire, that spirit has turned into quite a fun and adorable little craft.

These tiny gingerbread houses are cute in their own right, but with strategically placed doors they are turned into mug-topping hot chocolate houses, or as I like to call them, cocoa-buddies.

Delightful Delectables- Homemade Whipped Cream

by Maggie Kelleher

I am so excited about the holidays! I just got home from school for Winter Break and the sight of both a Christmas tree and menorah is just so cheery!

Anyways, this recipe is great for just about any holiday or really any day of the week. It's simple, homemade whipped cream, and it goes wonderfully on coffee cake or really anything you want it to!

Charming Crafts- Thanksgiving Turkey Cake

Thanksgiving isn't easy, especially when you're hosting. Not only can family make even little things stressful sometimes (I love them to death, but sometimes...) but with all the food you have to make, sometimes dessert doesn't even register on the to-do list.
