This homemade Peppermint Ice Cream is so tasty that Santa might just skip the cookies this year!Back when I was in high school, our next-door neighbor always made us a container of homemade peppermint ice cream for Christmas.  We could count on the peppermint ice cream showing up a couple of days before Christmas…and we loved it!  A little bowl of peppermint ice cream while sitting next to the fire and visiting with family was pretty much the definition of the holidays.  Even when I went off to college, I still looked forward to coming back home for Christmas and finding a container of that peppermint ice cream in the freezer.Continue Reading »

Loaded with chocolate and topped with marshmallows, these Hot Cocoa Cookies are just like your favorite Winter drink...only in frosted cookie form!Can someone tell me where the last 3 months went?  I swear it was just July…and now Thanksgiving has come and gone?  Wait…Christmas is only 2 weeks away?  I’ve got to get my gift-giving situation under control!  Growing up in Charleston, SC, I always dreamed of snow.  Not only was it fun to ambush my sister and throw snowballs at her troll doll collection, but I also got an unexpected day off of school.  In 8-year-old world, that’s pretty much the best thing ever.  (Heck, an unexpected day off of work is still pretty much the best thing ever…even in “adult world.”)  Granted, I think it snowed one time in Charleston in all of the years we lived there.  But it was a darned good snow!Continue Reading »
