Mincemeat Crumb Bars
These are my new favorite Christmas cookie!!! I have been looking for a simplified mincemeat pie recipe since I attended a semester of college in London---the refectory at my school had mini-mincemeat pies every day for the entire month of December....and I NEVER tired of them! These bars come close in flavor, without all the hassle of making your own mincemeat, or bothering with a crust. I followed the recipe exactly, except I used an entire (27-oz) jar of mincemeat, and just zested a whole orange instead of measuring. Thank you so much for this recipe--it will definitely be a tradition in my family from now on!!!

Gnocchi Bake
absolutely fabulous!!! My husband raved and raved about this. He even suggested that I put this into our regular rotation. The only thing I did different was to add 1 tsp. of Italian seasoning with the sauce. The ghocchi turned out tender and perfect!!! Thank you so much for such a simple but fabulous recipe!
