Happy December! This recipe collection has a little bit of everything – savory, sweet, and even some DIY home goods like simmering potpourri and dried orange slices for garlands and holiday decor.
Hot Apple Cider
Making homemade apple cider from scratch is so much easier than you might think. All you need are fresh apples, spices, water, and a few slices of orange if you have them on hand.
Paleo Sugar Cookies
Decorated with naturally colored sprinkles and plant-based, natural food dye, these sugar cookies are super easy to make and fun to decorate.
Homemade Eggnog (With Dairy-Free Option)
Grandma didn’t drink eggnog with high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, stabilizers and carrageenan, and we don’t have to either. Make this quick, creamy eggnog instead.
Dairy-Free Eggnog Ice Cream Recipe
This delicious dairy-free eggnog ice cream recipe has the smooth, scoopable, rich texture of real deal ice cream and all the decadent flavor of traditional eggnog.
These peppermint patties are just as cool, minty and refreshing as the original, and can be made in about 10 minutes of hands-on time.
Soft Gingerbread Cookies
These soft and chewy gingerbread cookies blend sweet cinnamon and a hint of vanilla with zingy ginger and molasses.
They’re surprisingly simple to make and so delicious!

Simmering Stovetop Potpourri for Fall
If you love fall-inspired scents like cinnamon and spice, but not the chemicals used in candles and air fresheners, check out this easy simmering pot recipe.
It creates a cozy scent that you can customize with whatever you have on hand, and it can be packaged in mason jars to give as gifts.

Soft and buttery, these thumbprint can be filled with whatever jam makes your taste buds sing – raspberry, strawberry, peach, and blackberry are a few of our favorites.

If you’re dairy-free, you can substitute salted almonds or pistachios for the goat cheese.
