Easy Holiday Cookies

Rachel Maria's Recipes

Ok, here is why these are called EASY Holiday Cookies. (Secret, revealed.)

I use an already-made pie crust. Of course you can use a homemade pie crust if you prefer. But, my theory is, why do something that’s already done for you? These cookies are quick, easy, BEAUTIFUL, and oh so good.

They take about 10 minutes to assemble, and the kids love to help roll them up. I’ve been making these, in a pinch, for years. An easy crowd pleaser. Enjoy!

Black Friday 2019 ~ What to Buy & Where to Find It!

Fashion & Lifestyle

I don’t know about you, but I have a love/hate relationship with Black Friday. On one hand, I love a great deal, just like the next girl. But, I love Thanksgiving a lot more. The idea of cutting this holiday short to save some money is a tempting trap. Not to mention, I would rather pay someone to stand in a claustrophobia-induced crowd, on my behalf. (And, that kinda puts me back at square one.) Last but not least, it’s so confusing to figure out what to buy and where to find it. So, in this blog post, I’m going to share some tips I have learned, that can help you get the most out of your Black Friday. While saving you TIME and money. Because both are pretty sacred, this time of year!

KIDS Gift Guide 2019-2020

Baby, Fashion & Lifestyle

Nothing compares to celebrating the holidays with children. Most of us remember the days of excitement, wonder, and expectation that filled our childhood days with joy. Scott and I are so grateful to celebrate the upcoming holidays with our two year old son, Chase. Even though, I fear, this may be the last Christmas without the pressure of hunting down the unreasonably popular, most-requested toy. So, for those of you who do have children old enough to make such requests (in some cases, demands)… This Kids Gift Guide is for you.

Thanksgiving Countdown

The House on High Street

So, you’re hosting Thanksgiving, this year? Congratulations! Or, shall we say, Good Luck? So far, Scott and I have hosted four Thanksgiving Dinners at The House on High Street. Rather successfully. Hosting any holiday dinner can be stressful. I think the best advice I can give you is to plan ahead and pace yourself. I created my own Thanksgiving Countdown! So, here are some tips for you in preparing for one of the greatest holidays, ever. Have fun!

The Ultimate Men's Gift Guide

Fashion & Lifestyle, Travel & Leisure

You would think it’s easier to shop for men. They’re supposedly more laid back and less complex. And yet, every year, I struggle to find the perfect holiday gift for my husband, Scott. Sometimes, we’ll joke around and I’ll remind him how easy it is to shop for me! “I would love anything from Nordstrom, Loft, Anthropologie, Kendra Scott, Lagos, etc.” But, Scott is super picky and prefers to buy things himself. Recently, I’ve been doing a lot of research on unique men’s gift ideas. I discovered a bunch of  things that have more originality. As of today, Scott does not own anything, on this list. But, I think he’d love anything that falls into his category. Therefore, I’m calling this The Ultimate Men’s Gift Guide. Because if Scott would love it, I’m sure your man will, too!
