Ultimate Cookies and Cream Oreo Cake – This is a triple layer chocolate cake with a cookies and cream filling, covered in a chocolate fudge frosting, topped with a white chocolate glaze and garnished with more Oreo cookies.


Homemade Crescent Rolls – These homemade crescent rolls are flaky, buttery and easier than you’d think. They are the perfect accompaniment to any holiday meal!


Sugar and Spice Candied Nuts – These sweet and spicy candied nuts are sweet with a punch of cinnamon and a hint of spice. Perfect for holiday cocktail parties or hostess gifts!
