This warmly spiced drink, Angela’s Eggnog Cocktail, is a holiday crowd pleaser. It’s the perfect beverage to add some flair to an evening with friends.

Eggnog Cocktail - afarmgirlsdabbles.com #eggnog #cocktail #holiday I’ve been waiting since last December to make this chilled eggnog cocktail myself. While at a Christmas party last year at the home of our dear friends, the hostess served this rich and creamy beauty to the adults for dessert, spiked with a little brandy and amaretto cheer. It was just the perfect way to end our evening together.

Angela’s Eggnog Cocktail.

‘Tis the season. Whirl some up and raise a glass with me!

This Cranberry Orange Skillet Cake with White Chocolate is bright and tangy and completely comforting, just the prescription for the gloom of winter.

Cranberry Orange Skillet Cake with White Chocolate - afarmgirlsdabbles.com #cranberry #orange #skilletcake

It has been Damp and Dark and Dreary with 3 capital D’s here in Minnesota the past week. Walking through the house during the middle of the day, it’s necessary to turn on a light when entering a room. A friend of mine was skiing at a local ski resort last weekend and said the night lights came on at 2:00 in the afternoon. I know that it’s winter, and we’re in the heart of the Midwest, but there’s just something very wrong with this picture!

So I asked myself…“what is the opposite of dreary?…and the words bright, warm, joyful, and comforting came to mind. Which can only mean baking, right?!

This Cranberry Orange Skillet Cake with White Chocolate is just the prescription for the gloom of winter. You simply must turn on the oven and make it!

A couple years ago, we invested in a colorful set of Fiesta dinnerware. We chose a mixed color scheme of scarlet, turquoise, lemongrass, and sunflower. Have you seen all the gorgeous color options? It was so hard to choose!

After using these pieces every day for almost two years now, in the house and outside on the deck, we can’t recommend Fiesta enough. We’ve been so happy with the shapes, sizes, colors, functionality, and durability of every single piece. And it’s so much fun to add new pieces to our collection.

These Chocolate Covered Cherry Cordials are fun to create, delicious to eat, and make a beautiful joy-filled statement on any holiday platter.

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cordials - afarmgirlsdabbles.com #chocolate #cherry #cordials #holiday #christmas #valentinesdayThis is one of those recipes that I’ve been wanting to try fooooooorever. But I’ve been intimidated to do so. Mom said I was crazy to think I couldn’t make these cherry cordials. But I’ve had very high standards in my head. I mean, have you ever seen my Aunt Patsy’s Chocolate Covered Cherry Cordials? They’re perfect. Absolutely perfect. Her chocolate covered cherries are gorgeously orb shaped, all neat and tidy, with just the right amount of chocolate shell that cracks when you bite down on them. I’ve always stared at them in awe whenever my aunt sets out her Christmas platter, turning one over between my fingers several times to take in their perfection before letting my taste buds explore.

But I did it. And you can, too. Just read on for the recipe, a tradition made famous in our family by Aunt Patsy.

These caramel rolls are a Christmas morning tradition in our family. Mom’s Ultra Soft and Tender Caramel Rolls, my favorite rolls in all the world.

Mom's Ultra Soft and Tender Caramel Rolls - afarmgirlsdabbles.com #caramel #caramelrolls #yeastrollsFood traditions are such a big part of who I am. And these time honored recipes have a way of stacking up during the holidays. I would love to make each and every recipe every single year, but it gets hard to find the time to make all of them, much less the freezer space to store them and the tummy space to eat them.

I’ve listed some of the recipes that I would call Christmas traditions in my family. Some have been gracing our family since before I was born; others are fairly new to the scene, recipes that we now simply don’t want to be without this time of year.

Doesn’t that list just make you want to get in the kitchen and make somethin’? I hope so!

While we can’t possibly make all these treats every year, there is one recipe that is extremely special, that I hope to never be without. Each Christmas morning, Mom gifts our family with a couple pans of her famous and amazing caramel rolls. It’s tradition at its finest. Mom’s Ultra Soft and Tender Caramel Rolls.

Caramel Honey Nut Cheerios Squares - afarmgirlsdabbles.com #caramel #marshmallow #cheerios #powerofoatsThis time of year is both a blessing and a curse for me when it comes to how I spend my time in the kitchen. I want to bake all the wonderful recipes I grew up making with Mom and my sisters when I was a kid. I’m nostalgic; you know that. But…I also can’t pull away from the urge to create something new. To gather together ingredients that I know my family loves and add a few fun twists to our annual holiday sweets platter.

Please say hello to my latest pan of deliciousness to come out of our kitchen. Caramel Honey Nut Cheerios Squares, a twist on a favorite recipe from Mom. They’re crunchy and chewy and taste completely wonderful!

Rocky Road Krispies Bars {no bake!} - afarmgirlsdabbles.com #chocolate #marshmallow #nuts #nobake #rockyroad

My father and mother in-law don’t do a whole lot of baking, but they do love to partake in dessert. Especially when it involves chocolate and nuts. Archie joins me in my affection for dark chocolate, but Loree isn’t much of a fan. She prefers milk chocolate, just like her youngest offspring, the boy I married. So oftentimes I try to find that fine line between dark and milk, a compromise that we can all enjoy. I played around a little bit with this recipe from Blake’s mom, to darken the chocolate flavor just a bit. But now I’m finding this treat ever so much more enticing and irresistible and naughty-for-my-waistline, that I’m questioning why I did such a thing!

I hope you like this recipe, a favorite from my husband’s side of the family:  Loree’s Rocky Road Krispies Bars {no bake!}.
