This moist Pear Cake uses pear brandy, but if you don’t have any on hand go ahead and use regular brandy.
What’s a holiday weekend without snacks? Make these Bacon Wrapped Smoked Sausage and watch them disappear so quickly that you’ll wish you would have made more.
A couple of weeks ago I picked up a bunch of fresh cranberries when I was in Martha’s Vineyard and froze them in anticipation of holiday cooking. I love how the maple syrup adds sweetness while the cranberries bring out the tartness, and the wheat flour gives a nice nutty flavor to these hearty scones.
My house has always been a gathering place, especially around the holidays. I like to make this delicious Gingerbread Breakfast Cake to have on hand for light holiday breakfasts. I mean, really, who wants to cook a big breakfast when your day is all about cooking up a scrumptious holiday dinner?!
Whiskey and maple syrup win out over the usual corn syrup. Complex and dense, this is one sweet pie, but worth every bite.
