Snowball Surprise Cookies



This is a must have in my house for the holiday season!






1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla

1¾ cups all-purpose flour

1 cup finely chopped walnuts

½ cup sugar

1 (6-ounce package) chocolate Hershey’s Kisses

Confectioners Sugar




  1. Blend first five ingredients well in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Refrigerate for 1 hour until dough is firm.
  3. About 10 minutes before baking, preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  4. Wrap enough dough around each unwrapped kiss to cover completely and shape into a ball OR if you can not get the ball shape around the kiss…. roll the dough into a ball and place it on the cookie sheet. Then lightly push the Hershey kiss into the dough (about 1 or 2 cm down so it will stay in place while cooking)
  5. Place on cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes.
  6. Roll in confectioners sugar while still warm. (or if you made it with the Hershey kiss on top shift powered sugar over top of the cookie while still warm)

Cheesy Chicken Bacon and Broccoli Soup Bread Bowl





3 cups low-sodium chicken broth

1 cup peeled and chopped carrots, diced small

1 cup chopped celery, diced small

3 cups peeled and chopped potatoes, diced small

1/2 cup finely chopped onion

4-5 cups broccoli crowns, diced small (about 2 heads of broccoli)

3 Chicken Breasts

4-6 slices bacon, chopped

3 tablespoons butter

1/3 cup flour

3 cups milk

4 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese (about 16 ounces)

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon dried mustard




  1. In a large saucepan, combine the chicken broth, carrots, celery, potatoes and onion. Bring the mixture to a boil, cover and simmer for 10 minutes, until the vegetables are starting to get tender.
  2. Add the chopped broccoli. Cover and simmer for another 10 minutes. The pan is going to be very full of vegetables and it might seem like it isn’t “soupy” enough since the vegetables overpower the broth but I promise it will all work out when you add the cheese mixture.
  3. In a separate medium saucepan, saute the bacon until golden and crisp. Remove the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate. Drain the grease and wipe out the saucepan.
  4. In a separate medium saucepan, Heat another teaspoon of olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat, place chicken breasts in and cook until edges are opaque, about 10 minutes.
  5. Melt the butter (in the same saucepan you cooked the bacon in) over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes until golden, stirring constantly. Gradually whisk in the milk and cook until the mixture is bubbling and is slightly thickened, 5-7 minutes.
  6. Stir in the cheddar cheese one handful at a time, adding another handful after the cheese that has been added has melted. Stir in the salt, pepper and dry mustard.
  7. Slowly stir the cheese sauce into the hot broth and vegetables, whisking to combine well. Stir in the reserved bacon and chicken and add additional salt and pepper to taste, if needed. If you want the soup a bit thinner, stir in a little extra broth or milk a bit at a time until you get the consistency you are looking for.






2tablespoons yeast

2tablespoons sugar

3?4tablespoon salt

  3. Remove and cover with plastic wrap – let the dough rise until doubles in size (about 30 minutes).
  4. Grease 2 cookie sheets and sprinkle with corn meal.
  5. Punch down the dough and make tennis ball-size dough balls (about 8-12, depending on how large you want your bread bowls).
  6. Place on cookie sheet with no more than 6 to a cookie sheet (don’t let them touch). Let them rise for another 30 minutes.

Recipe: Philly Cheese Steak Dip

Recipe from Tip Hero 

You’ll Need: 

1 Tbsp vegetable oil
¾ lb flat iron steak
1 cup diced onion
1 cup diced green bell pepper
8 oz cream cheese, softened
½ cup mayonnaise
4 oz shredded provolone cheese plus extra for the top of the dip
Salt & Pepper

You’ll Do This:

1 – Preheat oven to 350°

2 – Heat a grill pan or skillet over medium high heat. Once the pan is really hot, add the oil, then place the steak in the pan. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the steak. Sear 4-5 minutes on the first side until it has browned.  

3 – Flip the steak over and cook another 4-5 minutes on the second side. (The steak was medium-rare at this point, which I preferred since the steak was going to be cooked again once the dip was in the oven. But if you prefer, you can cook the steak longer to medium.) 

4 – Remove the steak from the pan and let rest 5-10 minutes before you cut it.

5 – Saute the onion and bell pepper in the grill pan until tender, about 5 minutes.

6 – Cut the steak against the grain into thin slices, then dice the steak slices.

7 – In a medium baking dish, mix the cream cheese, mayonnaise and provolone together. Stir in the diced steak and sautéed onion mixture. Spread into an even layer and bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until the cheese is starting to brown on top.

Serve with your favorite bread and enjoy!
