I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far!

We are expecting snow in Minnesota tonight and tomorrow, so Ella and I will be at home trying out some new recipes after we go see Santa later today!

We tend to hibernate at home a lot during the winter, so it's always a perfect time to try some new recipes.

Ella just loves to help whenever possible and I love that I can teach her new traditions, especially around the holidays.


There's nothing like cooking and baking when it's cold outside. Comfort foods are SO much better in the wintertime than summer.

This cranberry salad is such a beautiful dessert and is so perfect for any holiday meal or party! I brought it to Thanksgiving at my Mom's house and we all really liked it.

I made it again and brought it for all my co-workers to try, and they all loved it too and requested the recipe to make at their next holiday party.

It's easy to make, but make sure to allow the time of prepping the fruit part of the salad the evening before serving.

I just love anything with cranberries. The tartness is absolutely delicious to me and you can use them in SO many different types of recipes whether sweet or savory.


This recipe is especially good with the cream and the fruit mixed together. I love raspberry, so I used raspberry jello, but you can use pretty much any red jello for this recipe.
