Christmas Cookies Without Excess Sugar

Ah, the holidays. That time of year that everyone moves up (*out) a belt notch. The hubby doesn’t like really sweet desserts, and we both enjoy the traditional holiday seasonings.

Healthy Mixed Berry Muffins

My cousin is not a baker. She’s a cook. She’ll be the first to tell you that. Give her ingredients and watch her toss them together, add spices, taste, and adjust as necessary and whatever she makes will be delicious. But when she needs a cheesecake, she asks me to make it.
