Rose Romano’s Italian Peppers

It's been a week of feasting, for sure! It's the kind of week where calorie counting is put on pause and you just enjoy each meal as a gift. This week I've enjoyed my husband's rich, slow roasted lamb, my daughter's hand rolled sugar cookies, my cousin's first ever roasted turkey, a friend's super soaked rum cake and of course...homemade cinnamon buns. I have received gourmet food toys, such as dark chocolate with pink pepper and citrus notes, tarragon dijon kale crunch and chipotle spice sipping chocolate. Friends and family … [Read more...]

St. Lucia Day Cookies

Our next guest, Kristin Schell, shares a similar passion...gathering people at her table. In fact, she comes from a rich heritage of gathering folks starting with her husband's grandfather who ran The Schell Cafe in the early 1900's. We would've loved to meet him. He seems like our kinda guy. Following in tradition, Kristin has baked up a delicious cookie and is sharing it with you, our guests, today at LoveFeast Table. Tradition. Family. Food. All key ingredients this time of year as we celebrate the holidays. The word … [Read more...]

Dark Chocolate Cookies with a Candy Cane Swirl

You may have met our next guest before. If you remember, she brought the delicious Candy Cane Butter Cookies to our table last year. Rachel from A Southern Fairytale is just as sweet as can be! She married a good 'ole Texas boy and they are raising two adorable children. You'll often find her baking up something delicious in her kitchen or capturing moments with her camera. Please join us in welcoming her to our table today!  I'm so excited to participating in the Holiday Cookie Exchange for the SECOND year in a row! I … [Read more...]

Pineapple Cream Cheese Cookies

Whenever the cold, snowy, grey winter weather gets us down, we head on over to our next guest's table. Shari, from Tickled Red is always giving us a glimpse of sand and waves and capturing her laid back lifestyle with her surfer husband and her two monkeys boys. Shari's outlook on life and the food that she serves is always full of sunshine and simple enjoyments. She's creative, funny and well, we just like having her at our table.  Who said Christmas cookies always have to be chocolate or peppermint? No one which is … [Read more...]

Chocolate Double Delights

"I always want to dream." (Kacia from Kacia+Robot)  That pretty much sums up our next guest's outlook on life. She's a dreamer, a creative, a nurturer of the soul. She knits, she loves big and She Reads Truth. She also bakes! So, we invited her to join our 3rd Annual Cookie Exchange and we were so excited to receive her positive reply! Please welcome Kacia to the table.  I have an admission to make. I'm not a big sweets person. I'm just more of a salt-snack girl. But. Yes, there is a but... I will always make cookies … [Read more...]

Christmas Buckeyes

Traci from Beneath My Heart, is the real deal! We met her a couple of years ago when we were in Kentucky for a blogger event. She is kind, gracious, smart and the friend you want next door. In spite of being a mama to many boys, she keeps a beautiful home where creative projects always abound. She is an amazing source of inspiration for both your heart and your home. Please pull up a chair, grab a hot mug of something warm and welcome our guest! Mom wrote about the story behind our “buckeye tradition” in an article she … [Read more...]

Pecan Tassies ~ Gluten Free

We've known our next guest for almost as long as we've known each other. Michelle was a little girl at our church that we had the privilege of watching grow into a beautiful and very talented young lady. She is now a mama with a full crew in tow and we have to confess a slight obsession at looking at their pictures. They are so stinkin' adorable, it meets a need! Michelle also is a pastry chef by training and what she brings to her gluten free recipes is magical. You should try her coconut whipped cream (visit Gluten Free … [Read more...]

Gingersnaps with Crystallized Ginger

Some friends, we live vicariously through. Our next guest, Amy from Poor Girl Gourmet, is one such person. Oh what we wouldn't give to follow her around her garden and help feed her pigs. We'd love to sit at a table and talk to her about her cookbook, gleaning her tips for low budget gourmet meals, especially if that table was in Montepulciano, Italy where her and her husband host culinary tours. Yup, we want to be her! Please welcome Amy... When it comes to holiday baking, I’m more cake-baker and bread maker than cookie … [Read more...]

Traditional Christmas Cookies

Our next guest is one of the most joyful bloggers we know. Her blog, her writing, her life, exudes and spills over with pure, unadulterated joy. We hope to meet her in person one day. We just know she's the kind of person everyone needs in their life. She moved from the south and now lives life to the fullest on her island. She has two very important men in her life, her husband and her Doogan. She loves to wear flip flops year round, is enamored with the color pink and (even on her About Me page) is in love with sugar cookies … [Read more...]
