25 Days of Christmas Cookies: Salted Caramel Shortbread

Salted butter is key in this recipe, a key ingredient I almost missed. The corn starch in this recipe was surprising, but it definitely makes the cookies interesting and unique!  I used Maldon Sea Salt Flakes to top the caramel. Salted Caramel Shortbread

25 Days of Christmas Cookies: Eggnog Cookies

My husband is an eggnog lover, so I knew I had to make these cookies when I stumbled into the recipe on Pinterest.  I think eggnog is one of those things like cilantro; you either love it or hate it.  Hate might be a strong word, but these cookies will certainly have you rethinking eggnog.

High/Low : Scalloped Dinnerware

Last time I was at Ikea, I noticed some dishes that resembled a set I had seen at Williams-Sonoma. They are remarkably similar even though the photo on Ikea’s website doesn’t show it.  The Ikea dishes might be for you if you are in the market for some new elegant dinnerware, but not willing to spend a ton.  On the other hand, the quality porcelain from Pillivuyt will last you a lifetime.
