Soft Batch Style Chocolate Chip Cookies
Warm up this winter with a nice bowl of my Classic Chicken Noodle Soup with Roasted Vegetables.
I’m that person who enjoys soup even in the hot summer months, but I have to admit that it is so comforting when it’s cold outside! I LOVE making chicken noodle soup for my family and having leftovers for lunches. Packed with veggies and noodles, this soup does not disappoint. I have a secret ingredient that gives my soup amazing flavor. Give it a try!
There’s nothing like a nice bowl of warm chili during the cold winter months. I LOVE using my new KitchenAid Slow Cooker. Not only is it gorgeous, but you can set your temperatures and times! Dream come true. Seriously.
The chili I have for you today is thick and meaty. So great with some avocado, cilantro and tortilla chips for dipping. If you are feeding a crowd, this is a great recipe to serve your guests. It’s sure to warm everyone right up.
A little note….be careful about the chorizo you choose, some can be quite spicy. You can always substitute sausage if you want to go completely mild
I’ve compiled 15 of my favorite Picky Palate cookies that are perfect for christmas cookie exchanges, great for wrapping up and giving as gifts or plated up for your own family. Hope you enjoy and happiest of holidays to you and your family!

Looking for a fun new chocolate chip cookie?! Try my Hershey Kiss Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are great for sending as gifts to your family and friends this season!
If I had a dollar for every cookie I’ve made….that would be awesome, lol! You have to give my latest recipe a try. I found those adorable mini Hershey Kissses in the baking isle and knew they would make an awesome cookie. I also added a touch of peppermint for the perfect festive touch.
Break out your stand mixers and enjoy!

This year I’ve been on a mission to create new Thanksgiving recipes. Today, I bring you Thanksgiving side…Ultimate Creamed Corn. We enjoyed this so much that we ate more than our fare share so you might want to double or triple the recipe for your guests

If you decide to show up to your Thanksgiving dinner with this brussels sprouts recipe, please do let me know how it was received. I’ll be crashing my Thanksgiving with it, and I’m sure it will be a hit. My husband couldn’t get enough of this dish, and that’s usually a good sign that it worked. However, on the flip side–if he doesn’t like a dish of mine–I can usually tell it will still be a success.
If you would have asked me a couple years ago to create a brussels sprouts recipe voluntarily, I would have started laughing hysterically. Brussels have a bad reputation for some reason for being one of those vegetables you don’t want to have to finish before getting to leave the dinner table.
I’m telling you, this recipe will change your mind. As I stated, my husband couldn’t stop eating these, and he doesn’t even like Gorgonzola cheese. When planning your Thanksgiving side dishes, be sure to add this one to your menu. You prepare them right on the stovetop in a nice large skillet. Takes under 15 minutes, so you could prepare these right before your guests show up.
Hope you enjoy!

If it were up to me I would eat these cookies all year round. Possibly my favorite cookie ever. Perfect spices and texture…and who doesn’t love brown butter cookies?! I love the crispy buttery edges and soft chewy centers. These make a great cookie-exchange cookie and they are great for packaging in a box or cellophane bag with a little bow. I do believe these will be my cookie that I give to my neighbors this year for Christmas.
Hope you enjoy!
