Andes Mint Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Guys!!!! CHRISTMAS COOKIES!! Pretty much the best thing ever, right?! Five years ago, I had my first Christmas away from home. My sister and I were living in Florida and it was just two of us. We went to the movies, got Chinese food, and then spent the whole night making batch after batch of Christmas cookies! Every year since then I start getting super excited about baking cookies as soon as December hits! This month, Secret Recipe Club gave me an extra excuse to bake cookies!

Honey Poached Pears with Amaretto Whipped Cream and Candied Almonds #CleverlyPoached

Honey Poached Pears with Amaretto Whipped Cream and Candied Almonds

A good, ripe pear is definitely one of my favorite fruits. Juicy, creamy, and such great flavor. It seems to me that when fall rolls around, everyone becomes obsessed with apples and pumpkin. But in my opinion, pears should be the star of the season!! Pears are perfect as a snack, in breakfasts, desserts, or…
