One of my favourite things to do around the holiday season is to make cookies! While my parents are partial to my peppermint chocolate chip cookies, my absolute favourite Christmas cookies has always been cut-out cookies.
Can you believe that Christmas is just a few days away?! It honestly just feels like I was getting ready for fall just a few days ago! I think I have just been so busy this season that I have had hardly any time to just enjoy the Holiday season.
So this weekend, I forced myself to take some much needed time-out, shut off my email and relax and get in the Holiday Spirit, and Orville Redenbacher’s helped me out with that.
There’s just something about popcorn, PJs, a movie marathon and blankets on a cold winter’s night that is just so comforting. I really love those terrible made-for-TV Christmas movies. I mean, they are just so bad that they’re good! It’s kind of a family tradition in my house to watch as many of them as we can with popcorn in hand during December.

It’s no secret that I love everything related to fall. (See Exhibit A and Exhibit B here.) Naturally, with it being fall, I am craving pumpkin everything and I’m on a mission to do as many fall things as I can before it’s over.
Pumpkin bread, scones, cake, ice cream, candles, I love it all! And then I thought to myself, what is the one thing I like more than pumpkin? Tea of course, and then it hit me: Pumpkin Chai Cupcakes!!!
I have to admit that I was inspired by one of my favourite teas for this particular recipe… of course I’m referring to DAVIDsTea’s Pumpkin Chai! It is seriously the perfect tea for fall and warming the soul up after a crisp, fall day. I love the mix of sweet pumpkin, cinnamon and chai spices. It’s the perfect balance and drink for fall.
I have no idea where December went. Seriously, how is Christmas less than ten days away?!?! I thought it was time for me to share another one of my festive recipes! Eating biscotti with a latte or hot chocolate is one of my favourite things to do during the winter. But, the gluten-free biscotti you can get at the grocery store can be pretty steep, so decided to make my own. Biscotti is actually one of the few things that gluten free flour works really well for since the flour is naturally a little dryer and doesn’t hold moisture well.
