This is the simplest appetizer – made extra cute with a few extra minutes of shaping. It’s also a huge crowd pleaser. Who doesn’t love cheddar and ranch?
I love entertaining during the winter. I’m not talking Christmas – I’m talking the doldrum months that start the year. Everyone seems extra excited to have something to do – which means a fun, themed get together is alwasy a highlight.
This igloo cheeseball is the perfect snack for a winter movie night or winter wonderland party!
Looking for small batch recipes this holiday? Or ways to use up leftovers? This appetizer nails both because not only is it perfectly sized for a single family, it also use up the one thing I always seem to have left over – cranberry sauce.
This dip is only 4 ingredients and is super easy to put together. It’s also a beautiful balance of creamy, sweet, and tangy and the beautiful color from the cranberries makes it look at home on any holiday table.
Sized-down treats have been all the rage in my kitchen during the pandemic – fewer get togethers mean fewer mouths to feed – and I am so excited to share my current favorite! This cheesecake is the perfect size for a small celebration – and it’s made in the Instant Pot!
A creamy chocolate cheesecake is topped off with fluffy peanut butter frosting and dotted with mini chocolate chips. If you’re a cheesecake lover, you will just love this!

What’s the last thing you did solely for yourself?
It’s a hard season for self care – especially since fall also means back-to-school for so many. It’s easy to get caught up in all the “to-dos” – I know I do.
Often, I’ll extend that in to blog projects. This galette? I made just for me. Just because I wanted to. And yes, I ate the whole thing myself.

What is it about kids and dip? I swear, when my kids see dip on the dinner table, they go all starry-eyed. I’ve been making it more of a point to make dips to go with our meals – it always means more enthusiastic eating for us!
When we got a chance to try out Bar-B-Que Beast’s sauces, I knew I wanted to make a dip – and this came out perfect! The cream cheese was the perfect balance to the sauce sauce – and a nice foil to the smoky bacon on the chicken!
You know that everything-but-the-bagel seasoning that’s all the rage? I’d had it in my cabinet forever and finally broke it open one night when I was trying to throw together dinner last minute.
This chicken was the result, and the kids happily ate it and I patted myself on the back for a successful dinner and moved on.
The kids didn’t, though. They kept asking for it again. And again. And then one night, Jake asked, “Mom, don’t you want to blog this one?” So, here it is. If you like this one, you can thank Jake for kicking my butt into gear.
Cheese and crackers are this month’s #ImprovCookingChallenge theme – and one of my favorite snacks. They’re the main ingredients in this appetizer – but they’re elevated to something perfect for a dinner party.
This savory take on cheesecake features a crust made of crushed crackers and three different kinds of cheeses.
Gingerbread is my favorite holiday flavor. It may be because my German grandfather always sent us enormous batches of gingerbread cookies, but for me the flavors of gingerbread are just synonymous with the season.
This dip is the easiest gingerbread dessert you’ll find – no bake, and ready for company in 5 minutes.

Apple spice cake. Cream cheese frosting. Dark Chocolate. All wrapped up in a portable treat. You’re welcome in advance.
I’m calling them cakesicles because they’re just too big to be cake pops. Hefty squares are like a slice of cake on a stick. Sure, you can totally make them into smaller pops – but one taste and you’ll understand why bigger is better.
